The twins have arrived!!

Well imagine our surprise today when at what was to be a routine Dr. appointment, when the Dr. came into the room and said, "Feel like having some babies today?".

Well, a few hours later at 7:45 and 7:46 pm on December 20th, we welcomed Madeline Elizabeth and Isabelle Dawn Dittlinger into the world. Madeline weighed in at 5lbs 2ounces and was 18.5 inches long. Isabelle is 4lbs 14ounces and is 18inches long. Both babies and mom are doing very well. What a great Christmas present!
