It is hard for me to type fast enough because I am so excited and have so much to say about Cason & Calon! My heart is just so full. I can't even believe that I have this much love left in my heart after feeling the way I do about Cadence and Clara. The feeling is overwhelming, in a wonderful way.
So... the day they were born....
This past Sunday, I was woken by Jess saying, "Hey Sarah Lynn, we are going to the hospital." I probably woke up the fastest I ever have. Even faster than the time the fire alarm went off in my apartment. Jess had been having contractions throughout the night, and they were close enough together for her to call the doctor. They told her to come in to the hospital. As you can image, Jess was so thrilled with the possibility that the twins could be coming very soon, and she wouldn't be so uncomfortable. So, you can see why maybe she didn't laugh when TJ said, "are you sure, Jess? Is this a trick? We can probably wait." Not so funny to the woman carrying nearly 14lbs of baby, TJ.
They were at the hospital for a couple of hours before the doctor decided to admit her, which meant The Brothers would be coming very soon! I tried to explain to Cadence & Clara what was happening, and why Mommy and Daddy wouldn't be home for a few days. They were not impressed. I said, "Girls, come here. Your baby brothers are coming today!!! Isn't that wonderful?!" Clara was gone halfway through my sentences and Cadence says, "Is that all?" Yeah Cadence, that's all. Your mom is just spending all day bringing new human beings into the world that can be called nothing short of little miracles. No big deal.
Cason & Calon were born around 9:30p.m. on Sunday, February 22nd. TJ didn't call me until 11:30 p.m. which I scolded him for. Apparently they were 'in the operating room' and 'didn't have their phones' ...likely story, TJ. Tina, TJ's mom, came over in the morning so that I could go meet my new nephews.
I am in awe of these babies. I can't even fully comprehend how something like this can come to be. God is the only explanation. I am so in love with Cason & Calon. I loved them before they were here, but holding them, and looking at all their little bitty features, just completely stole my heart. They are so perfect. The delivery went perfectly, and the babies are bigger and healthier than I imagined twins could be.
Jess, TJ, Cason & Calon should be coming home this evening. Life will never be the same, and I'm so happy. Hopefully the girls will have a stronger reaction when they actually get to meet their baby brothers. I'll let you know.
2 babies, 2 blessings, 2 cute, born on 2-22. I have a new lucky number.
