Welcome to the family twins

Most of you know our family was eagerly waiting the arrival of Suzanne (Dans younger sister) and Doug's twins. Well, on Friday Feb. 15ht they were born. A little early but doing great. The little girl, Alexandra was just over 5 lbs. and is going home today with mom and dad. Nathanial was a little under 4 lbs. and will stay in the NICU till' he gets his body temperature regulated and the sucking down really well. He is strong, and healthy though and will be going home shortly. We are SOOOO excited for them. We had plans to all run down to San Diego on Monday and be with the family but Morgan came down with a cold so I called my Aunt and recruited her for the adventure and left the rest of teh crew at home for a day of rest.Here is a picture of Nathanial through the NICU window as they let Suzanne hold him up for us all to see. He is beautiful and has this mop of black hair on his head.
Alexandra has been in the room with mom and dad the whole time so we got to love on her which was sooooo great. I cant believe Ryanne was smaller than this. It doesnt seem possible.
Donna & I met up with Kim and David (Dans older brother) and baby Tyler and went to lunch on the way to the hospital. When we got there we decided to put them together to show the size difference. It doesnt help that Tyler is a moose like all the Harker men in the family! ;)
Yup, you know I'm cute!! ;)
Happy, tired momma with her knew baby girl and her nephew. The room was full of very happy people who cant wait to love on the newest addiotions to our growing family. Congrats to you both Suzanne & Doug, we love you and are so proud of you! We know it was a long hard road but you made it and have to amazing babies to show for all your perseverence.
