A couple of days later, Joe's dad and step-mom came up from Alabama. CJ met the girls on an earlier trip to Delaware, but Ange, or as he's known around here, PaPa, was meeting the twins for the first time this week. As soon as they arrived, Joe and I threw the babies at them, showed them how to mix the formula, and left them to fend for themselves while Joe and I got some much needed sleep. They did great! They even took the girls overnight, which meant that Joe and I could sleep without babies in between us for more than two hours -- what a gift!
Joe's sister Maria and her family also made it down to spend some time with Ange, CJ and the girls. Unfortunately, I didn't get to see much of them since I took full advantage of having guests in the house and went directly to bed.
Honestly, it was wonderful to have so many guests this week. Poppy and Olive have now met all six of their grandparents and both of their great grandmothers. These girls are so lucky (as are Joe and I) to have such a tremendous family! Thank you all for everything!
While Ange and CJ were here, they took a million pictures. As I've mentioned before, Ange is a fantastic photographer -- but now you can see for yourself!
