Twins at the hospital

After an awesome delivery and a few hours of tending to the boys, we were carted to the postpartum floor for the rest of our hospital stay.

Erin enjoyed some cuddle time with the boys. They weren't interested in feeding for the first 16 hours but have been doing great since then.
We wanted to make sure the first visitor would be big sister Evelyn. She came clomping down the hallway looking for those 2 babies everyone was talking about. When Evelyn arrived they were in the nursery so I help her up to look through the glass. Evelyn also noticed all the other babies. When we went back to the room with William and Jack Evie wasn't very interested - "Daddy, I want to see more babies" and a few minutes later (sadly), "Daddy, I want babies to be all gone."
As you can imagine it was a little hard on Evie. But her next visit was much better. She happily talked about William and Jack and ran around the postpartum floor with glee.
Of course both sets of grandparents came to see us.

William and Jack also met most of their aunts and uncles, some friends, and some great grandparents.

On Thursday morning we brought them home. Leaving the hospital with them wasn't nearly as strange of a feeling as with Evie. But in a very similar way, our lives will never be the same, we're looking forward to it!

Can hardly believe you guys are doing two little guys at once. Can you easily tell the difference between the two. Also if you are around on New Years weekend maybe we could stop in and see you guys

How exciting to see pictures of all of you in the hospital. I can pretend that I came and visited you now :) I was thinking though how nice it is that you have one grandchild for each grandparent when they visit. I know mine always fought over who got to hold my kids first. Good luck with everything!
