    We didn't get a call till 5:00pm because mummy's isn't too well although she is a little better now.

    No names given yet.

    We don't know their weight yet either but we have had a photo and daddy says they're fine.

    Thank you for keeping us in your thoughts. xxxx

    Love,

    Congratulations on the wonderful news Linda.

    I'm sure it has taken a lot out of DIL. I am reminded now of the lady who had twins when Lucy was born, she did look like she had been in the wars when she was brought onto the ward. I'm hoping she will be better soon.

    This is wonderful news! Congratulations to all of you, especially young Jack. I do hope he's had his first cuddle - if the twins are big enough for this of course.

    I kept checking the thread after I got home from work and then I saw the delightful news.

    I hope your daughter-in-law stays in hospital for as long as possible so she can recover from the birth as much as she can as with having a lively toddler at home, as well as worrying about the twins, will be emotionally draining for her.

    I hope you and Granddad are still grinning from ear to ear.

    Looking forward to having a further update of names, weights and - if Mum & Dad allow - perhaps a photo or two?

    Congratulations again.

    Thank you so much everyone!

    It has been a day full of emotion. We received a message first thing this morning to say they were going into the delivery suite before anyone else, then we heard nothing. Luckily with Jack being here there wasn't too much time to dwell on it. Then around 3:00pm we received a text from daddy saying 'We have babies!' and that he would ring us when mummy 'came round'. Then nothing till 5:00pm. Son Legs was no good at detail as it makes him hot under the collar :oops: and mummy wasn't well enough to talk. :roll:

    Since then we've had a phone call, a photo and lots of texts. Mummy is back on the ward but, as yet, no one has been to see the babies because mummy and daddy want Jack to meet them first. When we showed him the photo he declared that the baby in the yellow hat was his sister and his brother hasn't got a hat! I wonder if he's right.

    I'll ask mummy and daddy's permission if I can post a photo tomorrow.

    Thank you all for your good wishes
    and Theresa for keeping the water boiling :lol:

    Anyway it's very late and I have an email to write to my friends as I'm shouting from the rooftops that ...

    I'M A PUFFED-UP-PROUD NANNALEGS BECAUSE I HAVE TWO GRANDSONS AND A GRANDDAUGHTER!

    Lots of love,

    The waiting was awful, and of course you fear the worst. But now they are both here safe and sound, one with a hat and one without.

    I'm secretly pleased that at least one was a girl.

    Hope you get to cuddle them soon,

    I hope by now you've met your new grandchildren and that they're doing as well as possible.

    Do you know their names yet and their weights? I do hope they are both doing well and that Jack has met his new little brother and sister.

    Thank you so much for all your good wishes everyone and for the lovely flowers Barbara. :D:D

    We took Jack to hospital today to meet his new brother and sister. He was very impressed with them especially as they'd bought him a turntable and 'lifting bridge' for his train set. He did explain to them how they worked and told them that they couldn't share because they were too little. :lol: He did let them borrow his cuddly lion and Toffee (a little rabbit) who are very precious to him!

    The babies weigh 5lb 7oz each, though the girl is slightly bigger at this stage. We have a first name for each baby but mummy and daddy haven't settled on a middle name yet.

    Jack has gone home with daddy tonight because he needs his own bed and toys but he will be back early here because daddy has to go to work! :shock:

    As I type I'm endeavouring to upload a photo but Photobucket isn't playing very nicely at the moment, unfortunately! :x :roll: If it doesn't load soon I shall endeavour to have a go tomorrow.
    Nope, no joy and I'm tired so I shall have to try again in the morning when Jack is entertained elsewhere.

    ............oh and their names are Isabelle and Oliver! :D:D

    Love to all,

    Oh, what beautiful babies - I'm sitting here with a lump in my throat! What a wonderful gift!

    I love their names, and bless Jack for letting them borrow his precious toys.

    I hope you all have a very special Christmas with your new additions.

    Thank you.

    I do read all your messages, but as I just grab a window between being with Jack I'm unable to answer you all. You do make me smile!

    To give you an idea of size, here is Grandpops Legs holding them. This time Oliver is on the left and Isabelle on the right.

    Thank you for letting us see the lovely photos. You have two beautiful grandchildren!

    Congratulations again to all, especially Jack. It's fantastic he felt able to let the babies have his favourite toys. I hope Jack enjoys playing with his new toys.

    I suppose next question is - when does everyone go home? Will the family all be reunited for Christmas? I hope so.

    Thanks again.
