Happy Birthday Grayson and Weston!

October 21, 2011 goes down as one of the top 3 days of my life. This is the day that John and I welcomed two perfectly made little men into this world! Since this was c-section #2, there was a lot less anxiety and nervousness about the surgery and a lot more "let's get this show on the road" feelings. The surgery was scheduled for 9:30 so John and I showed up to Presby Plano around 7:30.

After some of the initial monitoring, poking and prodding was finished, I received one of my fave bracelets - the Fall Risk alert. John thought it was funny to tell anyone and everyone that came in to our room that I could use one of these in my day to day life.



The surgical nurse listed on the board above had an interesting background.


For those who are fans of the Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise, you may remember a rodeo clown from Texas on Trista's season. She gave him the boot because she is allergic to horses - he in turn called her shallow. And yep, he is now a nursing student and just so happened to be assigned to me. Which I thought was mildly interesting until he had the audacity to start bashing Chris Harrison. I just so happen to have a minor crush and Brook quickly lost any points in my book.

John all suited up and ready to go! Pretty sure we have this exact same pose from our first go around.

Waiting not so patiently for the surgery to begin...


Meet Grayson Jack Rosenbaum! He was born at 10:05 am and weighed in at 6 pounds. He was 17.72 inches long and is 100% perfection. Let it be noted that it felt like Dr. Mathews pretty much had to break my ribs to get this guy out - he was pretty intent on staying cozied up to my lungs for as long as possible!




Meet Weston Carter Rosenbaum! He was born at 10:06 am and weighed in at 6 lbs, 6 oz. Weston was 18.9 inches long and has earned the title of the youngest kid in the Rosie clan.




Our first pic with the boys...


After what seemed like endless heel pricks testing for low blood sugar, we were finally wheeled off to our home for the next 5 days.


Poor Addie wasn't really up for meeting the boys on the first day. She had a random fever virus so we could only let her look from across the room. On the flipside, she loved her new Rapunzel doll (so excited my little girl is starting to get into the Disney princesses)!


Austin was pretty excited about his new toys too but was REALLY excited to meet his new brothers!



My two little peas in a pod...



Skyping with Aunt Sommer and Uncle Corey...



So glad that the Aggies provided a win in celebration of the boys' birthday!


SMU didn't fair so well but we'll still let the boys sport the hats (thanks Cousin Barbs!!)


Austin and Addie checking out their new playmates...


After 5 days in room 434, John and I were ready to head home to be reunited with the A-Team and jump in to this new life as a family of 6.

Here are the boys suited up and ready to head out!  We almost had to have an outfit change because I forgot the cardinal rule of changing little boy diapers - always cover it up. Weston ended up with a little bit of pee on his outfit, courtesy of his dear brother Grayson. The rest ended up on me and the bed!


Hanging out - waiting for Mommy's chariot to arrive (aka the required wheelchair)...


And we're off!


Once again our time at Presby Plano was amazing. The staff there - both for me and our babies - were incredible. John and I were blessed by everyone we met!
