Our life feels like a surreal alter reality.  A good one.  We are still in shock and awe at what God has worked and is continuing to work.  All day today I ran between the hospital and wherever Lily and Bella were.  We aren't moving into the NICU, but we will definitely be spending a lot of time there.  Here are baby boy's precious feet.


They are doing so well, which continues to show us how God answers our prayers.  We are learning about IVs, feeding tubes and oxygen levels.  It looks like they will have at least two weeks in the hospital, if not more.  But they are healthy!  Miracles never cease.


Our girls got to meet their new brother and sister today.  They were really sweet with them, though at times, they may have been more interested in popping the little doors of the babies' beds open and shut.  Lily decided another good name for one of the babies would be "Pickle."  So, we have Pickle and Applesauce at the hospital.

While at the hospital, we discovered some good friends were there in labor.  It was so fun to see them, and we are hoping to meet their newest addition tomorrow!


After a quick dinner, we took the girls back up to the hospital to do some of their night time routine at the hospital with their new siblings.  John read them the "Jesus Storybook Bible" from his iPhone.


We are nesting a tiny bit at home, and John assembled the bassinet for our room.  It has been such a whirlwind and so unsure that we have done very little to prepare.  The good news is that we have time before the babies come home, and really, babies "need" very little when it comes down to it.


We are in love with these new little blessings.  Something about the way that we have fought for them and that God has placed us all together as a family is incredibly bonding.  Holding them is a real joy.  We are so thankful and continue to praise the Lord for the good work he has done.  He is so good.  Even if it had turned out differently (or if something else comes up), he would be so good, but so far, it seems to be turning out in a way that brings us much joy.  Amazing.
