    Well got a call at 4:45 this morning that my aunt had just delivered her twin boys. Her water broke around 2 am and she delivered the last one at 4:45. Havent seen them yet but cant wait to go see them tomorrow. They are 7 weeks early and they are fairly healthy to be born so early. So here is what she named them and what they weighted and how long they were:

    Grayson Thomas:
    4 lbs 14 oz and was 18 inches long

    Kaden Ray:
    4 lbs 8 oz and was 16 and 3/4 inches long

    And the coolest part is that they were not suppost to be identical twins and they are. I have a few pics of them and will try and post them tomorrow.

    Edit: Here are the pics that my cousin took of her little brothers today. I hope I get the names right on them, regardless they are still cuties! Poor little Kaden is under oxygen.

    Wow! Thats fantastic! They look great! You must be so excited. By the way, getting a call the same minute the last one was born is pretty special.

    Congrats on new additions. [​IMG] I have a really cool job, I am a Labor and Delivery RN!! I get to (help) deliver new babies!! I have helped 2 moms with triplets and several moms with twins. Sometimes the moms have to be in the hospital for several days to weeks to months in the hospital prior to delivery. Blood Pressure issues, dilating issues, pain issues, etc.... It is the most wonderful experience bringing and help bringing new life into this world. I have 2 boys ( 12 & 8). The fun part is that I get to play with babies all day long and get to come home and get a full nights sleep!!!!!! [​IMG]
