Kate’s Babies


52’s daughter, Kate, who got married in May of last year in a lovely, simple backyard ceremony, gave birth to twins on June 16. They were due July 30, so they were six weeks early. They were in the NICU for a bit, but they are home and doing well. They’re each still under five pounds, but they’re perfectly healthy.

She had a girl, Julia.

And a boy, John (Johnny).

One of our forum friends here, quietstorm, sent a gift for Kate. (Wasn’t that NICE?!) I brought it to Kate yesterday.

Absolutely adorable little booties. Hard to imagine, but the babies’ feet are actually too tiny for them yet, but they’ll grow into them soon.

Thank you, quietstorm!!!

    What precious babies! I hope Kate has some help or that they are very good babies. I can’t imagine taking care of twins.

    Congrat to all. The babies are so precious. My daughter is a NICU nurse and they are wonderful people. They take good care of early babies, and these two look wonderful.

    Oh they are beautiful. Aren’t they tiny? My first gbaby started out under 5 lbs. too but those little packages hold dynamite LOL. Kate does look fantastic. And I agree that NICU staff are wonderful people, at least all those we met at WVU.
    Congrats again!
