Three Valencia Girls

I feel like I have said this before but today was an AMAZING day at CHOC.  Not only did Phoebe and Piper have a very, very sweet nurse today but she assisted me in breast feeding both babies.  Both girls did an amazing job.  It was such a wonderful bonding experience.

Just when I thought things could not get better the nurse had me hold both girls skin on skin AT THE SAME TIME!!!!  I loved seeing the girls next to one another.  I could really see how different their skin tones were.  Piper is for sure tan like her daddy and Phoebe is lighter like me.  Piper was dead asleep when the nurse handed her to me but Phoebe was awake and very curious about her sister.  She was making smiling type faces at Piper.  My mom and I were cracking up at Phoebe.  At one point they were even holding hands.  The three of us girls got to spend over an hour cuddling together!!  It was truly a magical experience.  I was so glad that my mom was there to capture the moment.

I'm so glad you have had such supportive nurses to assist you with the girls! There is nothing that can compare with the time spent bonding with your babies. So happy for you.
