Sophie & Chloe

2 of our closest BFF's had their twin baby girls yesterday morning. Amina carried those babies for over 37 weeks in her tiny size-2-at-the-most body with ZERO complications!
They came out perfectly at 5 lbs 4 oz and 5 lbs 6 oz.
And they look JUST like Amina, and have a whole mess of black hair (I'm so jealous!)
They look pretty much EXACTLY alike (still not sure if they are technically identical or not).
For some reason I have not been this excited for babies to come since my own and couldn't WAIT to get to the hospital and love on them!
Somehow, when I got there yesterday afternoon, I was the only visitor for an hour and a half until Bryan got there. And I snuggled, unwrapped, de-beanied, smelled, and just loved on those little sweet hearts all by myself! Each one opened her big eyes for me and just stared around and made little baby squeaks & grunts. Aaaah, what is better than that? And when one is being nursed or checked by the nurses, there's one more for me to hold. It was the best.
And I have a few pictures, mostly of Hyrum's first poopy diaper changing experience (which was pretty hilarious, by the way), but I left our camera at the hospital. Looks like I'll have to go back sometime in the next 3 days to pick it up. Oh darn, that's a shame :)
And Hyrum & Amina are the 2 cutest, proud parents ever. Hyrum calls them his little "buckaroos" - precious! After I'd been there about an hour I asked Hyrum if he'd stopped smiling yet. He just grinned and said "nope". Perfect new daddy.
I'm just so happy for them, and being in that hospital brought back floods of memories for me & Bryan of having our own little bb's.
I will hopefully post pictures in the next few days (with their parents' permission of course)
I'm still smiling.
