THE BABIES ARE HERE!!!!!

The babies are here - hooray!!!!!
Born 1/28/2009:
Tate Joseph - 6lbs. 4oz. , 19 1/4 inches born 4:10pm
Talee Grace - 6lbs. 14 oz. , 19 1/2 inches born 4:31pm

Mom, dad, and babies are doing great - and sisters can't keep their hands (and lips) off of them.






It so happened that a first year dental student and his wife, Jessica and Adam Nelson had their baby boy, the day before we had our twins and our recovery rooms just happened to be next door. Pretty fun!
We appreciate all the love and prayers on our behalf. We felt and needed them all. Thank you!!! We are very grateful for these sweet little spirits and know we have a fun adventure ahead!

What beautiful an BIG babies. What a blessing they are here safely.

We can't wait to see what their personalities are like and how you transition from 3 to 5 kiddos. I am sure you will do it with ease.
