The TWINS are here!

Harper Marie and Landry Elizabeth were welcomed into this world on July 12th, their Mommy and Daddy's 5th wedding anniversary.   So many prayers were answered ... two tiny miracles, healthy as can be.
Landry Elizabeth was born at 1:59pm, 5 lbs 3 oz and Harper Marie at 2:00 pm, 3 lbs 3 oz.  Here is their very proud Daddy telling the "Smith fan club" of the twins arrival.

Harper Marie

I LOVE Harper's little wrinkles!
Both girls are doing great!  They remain in the NICU as their doctor would like them each to gain some weight before heading home.  They are feeding great, both off a bottle and Mommy.  They get a little enriched formula as an extra boost too.   These two little ladies are rockstars!  No IVs, no oxygen, no light therapy, just two precious gifts from God.
Ashley and Landon have been so strong throughout this entire journey. I can only imagine how hard it would be to have to go home without my babies each day.  I know they are both so anxious to get them home but remain patient as their little girls get the best of care and continue to grow stronger each and every day. 
I cannot wait to hold these little ones for the first time and introduce them to their bigger cousins.  Harper and Landry - you are so, so loved.  And in case you didn't already know, you have two amazingly, awesome parents.  We cannot wait to see all that you will do in the world!
