Looking Back

In only 8 short days my little babies will be one! Can you believe it? It only feels like yesterday that I was in Melbourne crying my eyes out at the thought of delivering my twins at just 29 weeks. Thinking about what could happen, will they be ok? And now a year on we are celebrating that as a wonderful day, the day Zachary James and Anna Caitlin made a quiet entry into this world via c-section after Zachary's waters broke.

Little Zachary making an appearance first at 7:25pm. Weighing in at 1518gms, 41cm long and a 29.5cm head circumference. Anna was quite comfortable and had to be convinced that she needed to come out. So after 3 minutes of pushing and pulling out she came (bum first) at 7:28pm. My little Anna weighed in at 1395gms, was 40cm long, with a head circumference of 28cm. Such tiny little things, but great weights for 29 weeks!

These photos were taken in the few days after their birth. I still have the little hats they are wearing and the boards from thier arms (that are actually finger boards!). I still have A LOT of stuff from these days down to the nappies they are wearing (well not the actual nappies, clean ones LOL ) The nappies are actually preemie sized ones and are still to big!

Now we will take a look back at their first few months in NICU....
