in the meantime

Jesse here. We're about to head home, but I wanted to give you guys some pictures from the last two days at the hospital. Thanks to everyone who stopped by and for all the wonderful gifts we received. We love you all even though we forgot to get pictures of almost everyone who came!

mad props to adrienne for helping bring 2 dukes into the world, we heart you big

special thanks to lena for documenting everything (no detags here!)

hope you're not too scarred to have kids of your own one day after all that you witnessed:)

grandvincents looking quite proud

not sure why judah and I didn't make this one, maybe the creepy pacifier face is our stand in

he eventually warmed up and was having a blast

all the current residents of ebenhearth (dukes homestead), with layla-boo

nothing like getting two more cousins in a weekend (our sister in law jackie's sister had a baby girl on friday so sophie and bella tripled their cousin allotment this weekend!)

it's laughable to imagine getting everyone to look in one picture (even the 'cloud' couldn't save this one)

judah trying to get a new perspective on this malarkey

no matter how many more we'll have, there will always be time for this
