They're HERE!!

I'm sorry I've been so slow to post. I am going to post an entire birth story, but first and foremost I wanted to get some pictures up!!

I'm happy and proud to announce that Samantha Mary was born on August 11th at 825am weighing in at 6.2 lbs and 19 3/4 inches long. She came out first, screaming her lungs out! It was a wonderful beautiful sound!

Anthony Mark was born one minute later, at 826am, weighing in at a whopping 6.12 lbs and measuring 19 inches long. He took a moment to shout, but once he did, he let us know he was there!

Both babies are beautiful, healthy and required NO NICU time!! Yeah!!

I didn't fair quite as well, had a few issues after delivery, but I'll save that for the full birth story post ...

But, without further ado, PICTURES! There are lots more pics if you click on any of these pics and look at my shutterfly album ... I'm having a hard time picking just a few to display! They are all so cute!

Here is my sister's beautiful family! My sister is holding little Anthony, and Anthony is holding Sami.

The twins are fighting already! Although I prefer to think that Anthony was shielding Sami from the paparazzi!

Caba, congrats on doing such an amazing job and growing those little ones for so long! The photos are absolutely beautiful! I was teary looking at them and dreaming about having a similar experience in February! I'm sorry to hear that you had a rough time, but glad to hear that you are doing well now. I am anxiously awaiting your post about the birth story.
