Need extra arms...

I can't believe I'm typing this but we now have 3 week old twin girls at our home. Yesterday about 9am I recv'd a call from our SW, she wanted to know if we would be interested in 9 week b/g CC twins. Of course I was but I had to call A first. He was a little hesitant but they are here now....however, they are identical twin girls and they are only 3 weeks old....yikes! They are so very cute and extra small. When dh and I first walked in their room, I almost went running the other way. I have to admit, I was scared. We're calling one Big Mama and one Lil' Mama....Big Mama is 4.4 lbs and Lil' Mama is 3.6....you see why I was freaking out. They look like baby birds, strong baby birds. And they are eating like champs. The funny thing is their RD at the hospital is a great client of mine, so if I have any feeding questions I can call her on her cell.
I'm not sure how much I can share with you but I think the state is going for termination of PR. I have no clue why. It's obviously a sad situation but I'm thankful that dh and I can help in anyway possible. If they happen to become available for adoption we will more than likely move forward.
If you are wondering, my little man G is doing wonderfully. He is a monster compared to them and he is of course too anxious to touch them but other than that it's not too bad. If they cry he goes running to the pnp, 'mama, bebee cry'...it's so cute. When I'm feeding them if G is not busy playing or reading his books he gets very jealous but I think in time all will be well.
This is going to be short....we've been busy and of course tired. Goodnight.....D

omg...just found 1 spare second to finally catch up with you and BAM! Such big news! Here I am exhausted and still wrapping gifts and it's midnight on Christmas eve - yet I have nothing on you. You're the Super Mama to those girls and G and I give you tons of kudos.

Hang in there!

Merry Christmas,
Laura :)
