Twin Arrivals {Personal}

Our twins arrived safely on January 2nd, 2012:
We couldn't be happier or more sleep-deprived. :)
 Saith Rudolph was born at 12:18pm, weighing 6 lbs, 1 oz
and sister
Neva Marie was born at 12:22pm, weighing 5 lbs,  3 oz.

Neva is "Baby B" as noted on all the ultrasounds, she already seems to be a go getter. We joked she weighed less because she burned so many calories being active before she was born!

"Baby A", Saith, born first:  
He definitely resembles his dad more than his mom!

In dad's arms:

I was going to "tan myself" in photoshop to hide my palor (My Hemoglobin dropped to 8.6 mg/dL ... bring on the iron pills!) and tired-ness but, 
alas, this is what's real! :)

Auntie Lindsey's idea:
(special thank you to Aunts Lindsey, Kendra, and Shannon for helping with this photo session!! Newborns are surprisingly tough to take photos of!)

Sharing secrets:

A few days later, I wrapped them up in a cozy fleece and snapped a few more photos in natural light:

Saith has so many expressions. This being one of his favorites:

Nate got this photo while I was changing Saith:

Happy after his diaper was changed, he gave a little smile. :)

Thank you, everyone for all the congratulatory well-wishes and love and support.
I will post a few more to facebook soon.

Happy New Year 2012!
