Congrats!!!!  ;D I love the names that you picked out for your boys! I love the name Beckett. It's so classic. =) I hope he figures out how to latch soon.  I can't wait to see pictures!

Congrats mcCoy!!!!! wow, you made it sooo far what a long haul! That is so awesome that you were able to have a vaginal twin birth! They are adorable! Are they fraternal or identical? I love the pic you put up on the check in post.
Keep up the hard and tiring work on breastfeeding and keep us posted!

Thanks everyone! They are keeping us busy- constantly, and sleep is SO over with!!! But we love them so incredibly much. I'll be glad when Beckett starts to nurse and we get some sort of routine going. We go back today for  weight check and bilirubin check, then I go for a lactation consult. I can't believe how difficult it is with TWO of them! It makes having one a piece of cake.
We don't know technically if they are identical or not since they shared a placenta (which usually indicates identical), but they have TOTALLY different personalities and look different to us.

Congrats on the big boys!!! You have been a great help to so many of us, it is awesome to hear that its all worked out for you! Good luck with latching, Beau and I have had some breastfeeding issues but are plugging away. Eventually.... :)
