The Much Anticipated Christmas Photo

How cute is this? Shane (left) and Dylan (right) in their first photo together since leaving the comfort of their mother's womb. When I first saw this I got teary-eyed because both boys look so perfect and so right together. The Christmas 'shirts' they are sporting are actually newborn bibs, which gives you an idea of how wee these lads are.

Getting this photo digitized was a completely hellish experience and once I couldn't possibly recount without the use of profanities, so I will only say it was a very trying and torturous experience which led to me having a mini-meltdown, which is uncharacteristic of me. Anyway, it's here and worth all the hell it took to get it here.

And, not to be forgotten, here are pics of my Cousin Charlie Jackson and his wife Donna holding the boys as they fed and slept in their arms last Saturday evening. Family makes me happy.

They are beautiful, they really are. You know side by side you can see the similarities and differences between them so much more. They are both amazing little guys. Our love and prayers still going out for them every single day.

That picture was certainly worth the wait, though I'm sorry it was so tough to get digitized Corey! They look so sweet laying there together, I bet that's good therapy for them too, to be next to each other once again.

Keep up the good hard work boys! You're doing great!!!

Hi Guys. It's been a while since I last checked in. Glad to hear everything is going well. We've all been hit with colds, ear infections and sinus infections. But when we are better, we would love to come visit. You are now only about 10 minutes from us. We hope to see you at Betty's on Christmas Day!!
Love Ya!!

Awww, I love the photo of the twins. They are just so cute. That photo really does show how small they are. I can't believe how big those bibs look next to them.

Shane and Dylan look wonderful, and I'm so happy to hear about their progress. My girls were in the NICU for quite a while, too, and I know it can be a difficult time. You guys are doing a great job!

By the way, I am an online friend of Michelle's from the ivillage message boards.

Best wishes and Merry Christmas!
