Sadie Wende Taylor and Matilda Mackie Taylor are here! Yes, a little ahead of schedule so that’s why I haven’t posted. I went in for my Monday appointment at the hospital and long story short was told I’d need to deliver that day. So by c-section, Sadie came out first weighing 2.6 pounds and Matilda followed at 4.3 pounds. Yes they are small but they are fierce. Sadie is breathing full on room air and Matilda is needing a little bit of help from a nose cannula but other than that they are fine. Both are in the NICU and will be there for awhile but, really, it’s not as bad as I’d worried it might be to have such small babies. I practically had a panic attack right before I had the spinal what with all the “teams” of doctors standing by waiting for the preemies. There had to be 15 doctors in the room. A team for baby A, a team for baby B (all from NICU) and my doctors, nurses and anesthesiologist. Pretty scary. But then they came out crying and I knew that was GOOD. So I got to see them for a second or two before they were whisked away for tests.
Since then I’ve been able to see them everyday and hold them too. They are so so freaking cute it’s ridiculous. Sadie (the tiny one) looks like a new kitten – which, not being a cat person, I wouldn’t have thought would be as cute as it totally is! When I look at my bigger baby Matilda, she seems like a full size newborn to me. Sure, that’s in comparison to the other one and yeah, I’ve got Percocet in my system 24/7 but still…
Okay, here’s a pic and really, it’s not as scary as it looks but this is the only picture I have easy access to at the moment. I’ll post many more. This one is Sadie, the smaller baby, and her tired but relieved momma.
Please know that I’m so grateful for everyone’s support and well wishes and I’m just soooo grateful for my beautiful, petit and healthy new girls. I hate to say it but this may be turning me into a big old sap. But don’t worry, I won’t be scrapbooking anytime soon.
