So I have done a terrible job of keeping you posted. The babies are here and have been for a little over a month!!! Time flies by quickly! They were born on July 19th via c-section at 4:45 and 4:47 am. Mariah Diane was first and weighed in at 6 lb 5 oz. Mollie Elizabeth was second and weighed in at 6 lb. 1 oz. I am VERY glad they weren't born too much later than they were because I can't imagine carrying any more baby weight than I already was!!! Good news is that I lost 28 pounds when they were born!!! Woohoo!! My water broke at 1:55 am on the 19th so I went into the hospital and everything went super quickly from there. I actually went started feeling contractions as soon as my water broke which is a change from when I was pregnant with Abram so I guess it takes two babies before my body will start doing what its supposed to. The contractions were 2 minutes apart so I imagine if I would have been allowed I would have gone pretty quickly without the c-section. But I am thankful to have had a c-section because the thought of pushing is too scary! : )
Well...here are some pictures of the babies for the last month. Hopefully I can do all of them on one post. I've never tried to put so many on before. Enjoy!
This is the longest post in the history of posts so be patient you will get to the end soon. : )

Thanks for posting pictures! I have been wondering how you guys were doing. They are very beautiful girls! I was going to ask you how getting up with two babies in the middle of the night was, but then I watched the video and I guess you got pretty lucky to have to only get up with one at this point!

How is Abram adjusting to having little babies in the house?

YAY! Congrats on a beautiful couple of kids!!

They are soooo cute Anna! And yeah, wow, three kids! It is really crazy growing up. :) I always just think of our make-up conversation that first time we really talked. :D So long ago- so wierd! But anyway, your girls are just beautiful. :) Congratulations! (And I agree with Ashley, I hope you're getting some sleep too!)

Thanks for the sweet video of little Mariah. I can't believe how fat her cheeks have gotten! I thought it was Mollie at first.
