HI!

Well, I am offically a member here now! My name is Erin, I am now the proud Mom to newborn twins, Leah and Jocelyn~born 8/23 @ 35 wks 1 day. If you look at my siggy you will also see that I have a house full of other kiddos, but the shop is now closed! LOL

The girls are now 2 weeks old and doing wonderfully. I am breastfeeding them and its going well (now). The girls had a severe weight loss, but now are gaining again.
Anywho, I just wanted to introduce myself before I jump in Biggrin

They are absolutely beautiful, congrats! I have girls that just turned 2 on 8/4 at 35 wks 1 day as well, being the last of six kids, with the only boy being my oldest. I hope you're able to get some sleep!

Hi Erin! I am glad you made it over here! The girls are just precious. I hope the other 3 kiddos are adjusting well to having two babies in the house.

Leah Claire was 7.7lbs 19 1/4in ~ but she lost down to 6.4lbs
Jocelyn Kate was 6.10lbs 19 1/4in ~ but she lost down to 5.15lbs

Needless to say I had some BIG babies! LOL
