The McCarley twins.
So SO SO precious!
Here are a few fun facts about these beautiful babies…
Tell us about that first moment when you saw your baby.
Mom- I didn’t have an easy delivery. The babies were born at midnight on Saturday and I wasn’t able to go see them until Monday night. About 70 hours later Robbie wheeled me down to the NICU and I was able to hold them both and feed them their bottles. It was hard to have visitors come and see me and then go see the babies when I wasn’t able to see them myself. Robbie was great about spending time with all three of us and taking lots of pictures to share with me.
Dad- I teared up and thought They looked like their big sister Meg. I walked to the NICU when they took Miles and then Maddyn came a few minutes later.
What were your babies birth weight and length?
Maddyn 4.6 pounds and 18.11
Miles 5 pounds and 17.9
Is there a story behind your baby’s name?
Robbie chose Miles and I chose Maddyn. Robert is a family name. His father and grandfather both are Robert. Lillian was my grandmother’s name.
Give us the scoop. What has surprised you the most about parenthood? Are there any funny stories or firsts that you’d like to share?
We are most surprised about how quickly they grow! Robbie is a morning person and I am a night owl. This helps with the feeding schedule. We are also surprised at how tired we are each day. The babies have their own way of communicating. One will do something and the other will laugh from across the room. Whenever they are somewhat close to each other they gravitate towards each other to cuddle.
Early one Sunday morning around 3 am Miles started to hiccup. Maddyn then began to hiccup. They went back and forth and would occasionally go out of order. When this happened one would hiccup twice. At the time we thought this was hilarious. (Remember, sleep deprived!)
What did you like best about your experience with Crystal Jo?
Crystal Jo never disappoints. She does her thing and gives us the best pictures that we will have forever.
