Getting ready to go home

Ignore my face and just look at the sweet little girls


I will post a longer birth story later, but here is the condensed version. My water broke Sunday night at 9:30pm. I was ready to push by 12:30am, but had to wait for the doctor. Holland came first, with just 4 pushes and then Harper flipped around and was born breech 9 minutes later, with only 6 pushes. I was 36 weeks and 1 day pregnant. Harper had to go straight to NICU with some breathing issues, but was out after only 12 hours. She was able to come in our room and we all got to go home together on Wednesday morning Feb. 8. They are amazing and we love them so much. Dane is doing so great with them and we all love them so much. More pictures and more details to come.
