More twins!

Meet the Morrow twins, Elizabeth and Annabel!

The girls were born 7 weeks early and weighed just over 3 pounds at birth. After 4 weeks in the NICU the twins, healthy and tipping the scales at 5 pounds, came home.  Their mom, Jenny, had a freezer full of breast milk waiting, and their dad, Scott, had two of everything ready. I was invited over to greet the babies and tuck them in skin to skin against Jenny’s heart, which was literally bursting with joy.

For the first six weeks home the twins shared the space in their Nesting Days carrier, but thanks to all that breast milk, the girls have doubled in size!  Each now weighs almost 9 pounds and are now ‘taking turns’.

“It was great when I could fit them both in the carrier together, but now that they are bigger, it is also great to be able to tuck one baby in while I hold the other.  Nesting Days is is still a huge help!”.

I’m so happy that the girls are thriving, and Scott and Jenny, you’re both awesome!  xoxo, Julie
