Meet Finley Maxwell and Scout Amelia!

Tuesday, November 25, 2008 we welcomed Finley Maxwell, and Scout Amelia into this world!

Finley was born at 12:44 pm and Scout was born at 1:22 pm.

Finley was our little peanut; 5 lb. 8 oz. and
Scout was a little bigger than her brother; 6 lb. 3 oz.
Both babies were 18 inches.
Both are healthy and precious and wonderful!

I can't believe they are FINALLY here! Things went really well, there were a few minor complications, but I was able to deliver both babies naturally and with no epidural or pain medication!

Here they are in their first hours of life:

Malichi and Kinzie are doing just amazing with them. They were both excited when they came in to meet the babies; eager to hold their new baby brother and sister. They got to open their gifts "from the babies", and they gave the babies the gifts they bought and wrapped for them. It was so sweet. They were so excited to show the babies what they picked out for them all on their own! And they didn't have to fight since they both had one to hold! We were SO impressed with them!

Proud Brother:

Proud Sister:

We took our babies home on Thanksgiving Day. Both of our little turkeys are doing wonderful! :)

Finley and Scout are already a week old and our first week with them was absolutely wonderful!!
