Two Beautiful Girls!

Ahem... a drumroll, please?

I am so sorry it has taken so long to update everyone. I had NO idea life would be in such an uproar after the twins' arrival. It has been mostly a good uproar (you know, outside of sleep deprivation and hormones swinging wildly), but WOW, how wonderful it has been!

This is a quick update to let you know that the twins have arrived safely and soundly. After weeks and weeks of praying that they wouldn't come too soon, I began to wonder if they were coming at all.

They were born Friday evening, August 15, at exactly 38 weeks gestation.

Baby A  ~  6lbs. 12 oz., 19 inches long

Baby B  ~  7 lbs. 6 oz., 21inches long

Summer 2008 101

 About 20 minutes after Baby B was born. I'm smiling as I realize that it is really over... we made it.

 My beautiful reward after a long wait. Baruch attah Yahweh! Thank you, Abba!


I think I have finally emotionally processed the birth story enough to be able to write it out... I'll try to post it soon. But then again, if the dating of this announcement is any indication... don't hold your breath.

  20. Beautiful! So glad to know that babies arrived healthy and that you are recovering. Please let me know if you are in need of clothing-I have boxes and boxes of girls clothing from my 4 1/2 and 6 year old daughters and it appears that my baby days are over so I would love to share clothing if you need it.
    Praising YHWH for His goodness!

  21. Um, er...that should say "blessings," not "blessins." Yes ma'am, I guess I DO live in the south now. :)

    Julie, that is OVER 14 POUNDS OF BABIES!!!!!

    WOW! Aren't you the WOMAN!?! :)

    Are they identical? (Get ready to hear this question for the rest of your life.) :)

  22. And I really MUST know there names. No rush. :)

  23. Hurray! They are finally here! I am sooo thankful! And nice healthy weights - good job, mama! I can hardly wait to hear your birth story! (But not instead of sleeping when you can!)

  24. Oops - I forgot to say that your twins were almost the same weights as mine - 7 lbs. and 6 lbs. 13 oz. - and I'll never forget how much lighter I felt after their birth! :-)

  25. They are beautiful! And I just love their names. I Hope to be able to meet them sometime soon! Congrats and many blessings.
    Thanks for posting pictures.

  26. Beautiful babies! And good weights too, praise God! Congratulations :o)

  27. Oh, they are BEAUTIFUL!!! Praise Adonai! Wow, you were carrying a lot of baby there, each of your twins weighed more than either of our babies, singally. They look so healthy. Can't wait to read "the story". (((Hugs)))

  28. What a blessing!!


  29. Julie,

    Heartfelt congratulations on your twin girls. They are gorgeous. Can't wait for the name announcement and birth story.

    Hope you got our email a few months ago--we'd still love to help out in any way we can with your future plans regarding Israel.

    Blessings to you all,
    Naomi & family

  30. Congratulations! I am overjoyed to see pictures of you three beautiful ladies. :) I can't wait to hear the story of your birth experience and hear in what direction prayer is needed most. I am so very happy for you! Giant grins in Nashville, Tennessee, right now.

  31. You look absolutely radiantly beautiful Momma and so do your little baby girls. CONGRATULATIONS!
