Twice as Nice...

...and double the trouble! Our friends, Jeff and Josie, had their twin girls on Thursday, April 15 (tax day!!!). Miss Sophie Marie arrived first and her little sister Ryleigh Jo arrived about 8-10 minutes later. Everyone is doing great!

We headed up on Saturday to visit and when we arrived around 5:45ish with McDonald's in hand (their request), the Cards game was in the 11th inning. I kept thinking we'll leave when the game is over, well...at 8pm and bottom of the 16th we decided it was time to go (FYI Cards lost in the 20th inning 2-1).

Here is the proud momma and daddy with their girls (surprisingly the girls look nothing alike), picture is missing big brothers Cody and Nick. Yes, that means FOUR children and yes, both these two are under 30!!!
Here I am with the girls, Ryleigh on my right and Sophie on my left. Jeff asked after about 20 minutes if he needed to take one of them, I said nah, at this age they don't move too much so I was soaking in my baby time. A few minutes later though, my arm did go numb and Matt rescued me by taking Sophie.
Matt with both the girls. Suprisingly, he wasn't a freak this time like the past couple times we went to visit babies in the hospital. I think maybe because the girls' dad is one of his good friends so he figured if Jeff's doing it, I sure can!
They head home on Monday so we'll be checking in on them and helping out however we can. I know we're planning on taking the boys a couple nights just to get them out of their hair. Twins are so exciting but I'm sure they'll be a lot of work! Congrats Jeff, Josie, Cody and Nick and welcome Sophie and Ryleigh!!!

Four babies?! Just craziness! I'll be their life isn't ever boring. ;)

The twins are beautiful.

And by four babies, I mean four kids. Not that she had quadruplets because that? Would be insane.

Four kids? Geeze. They look happy, though.

Ah twins would be so fun! Until they started pooping or wanting to eat...so basically they would be fun in theory! Did I ever tell you baseball is the only professional sport I will watch? I love baseball!

That is fantastic. Congrats to your friends.

Our twins are approaching 4--and it has been quite an experience.
