THERE BE BABIES!!!!

Please allow me to introduce Charles David and Olivia Ruth, weighing in respectively at 4.9 and 4.4 pounds. Charlie was 17.4 inches long and Livvy was 17 inches. Charlie looks like Abby and her cute Grandpa, David Legge. Olivia has a dimple on her chin and a widow's peak in her hairline, a sign of mischievousness and a sign of beauty, again respectively. Both babies have heads full of dark blond wavy hair. Charlie, when I saw him in the NICU was lying on his stomach (and I have witnesses for this) did 3, COUNT 'EM 3, push-ups and lifted up his head each time...no, I am NOT exaggerating. Olivia, or as I have taken to calling her, Olive-vivvy, lays quite serenely and queenly and dislikes noise...she of the dimpled chin and widow's peak....yes...there be babies...

The following pictures are "pictures of pictures of newborns" and therefore the quality goes down quickly...please forgive me...but I wanted to post SOMETHING! Also, a word about the picture of Abby and her babies...some of you may not have had the pleasure of meeting Abby...let me say something about her...She is one of the most amazing young women-correction-she is one of the most amazing PEOPLE I have ever had the pleasure of knowing and the fact that I am related to her is a prize I will treasure eternally. I never realized how much I loved her until today. I KNEW I loved her, but I didn't realize the true depth of that love until I gazed at that picture and caught a glimpse of her soul. When I gaze at that young mother's face, and all that she experienced in the last several months in an attempt to save her children, I see her spirit. Her great, noble spirit. And I am honored to share in her mortal journey. Honored. Here's to you Abba Dab. The Dear Sweet One...

I thought the same thing...that round McCoy face, knobby and dimpled chin, almond shaped eyes...the whole shebang! I'm waiting to see how she shapes out...and by waiting I mean leaping out of my skin...
