It has been a special day. Happy Birthday to Brooks and Brynn who arrived today around 11:45. They are very close to the same size with Brooks being a bit larger at 19 1/4 inches long and weighing six pounds and 2 ounces. Brynn is 18 and 1/2 inches and weighs six pounds and one ounce. Their Mom and Dad are so proud and all are doing well. Being good grand parents we have spent several hours today just holding them! Here where they live the cicadas welcomed them to the world today by loudly singing their songs!! And it seems there may be some fireworks in their honor tonight!
