They're here,They're here,They're here

They're here,They're here,They're here,They're here,They're here,They're here!!!!

The twins were due to be born by Cesarean yesterday the  15th!!! BUT they were born last Thursday on the  7th June :)
 They have their own birthday, as it seems they  missed all the significant other birthdays in the family :)


Sorry, you have all been waiting for the other shoe to drop!! Gemma had some early labour and had to stay at Canberra Hospital for a month, that's 2 hours away for us and longer for them,so Aaron and I made a tag team of staying with her as he had to work. She was allowed home for 2 weeks but had to go back at 36 weeks.We also had to move house for them..another story... the week before the Cesarean and we only had a window of opportunity of 2 days.....the Wed and Thursday.On Tuesday I took Gemma in for her ultrasound and she had stay until the ceasar,I stayed overnight and came back to help with the move on Wed. We moved most of it and decided to regroup and move the rest on Thursday........you know where this is going? right?

On Wed night about midnight I get a shaky call from Gemma, "Mum I think my water just broke.."
 "Is it gusshing/ 
 "yes"
" i'ts broke"
"can you ring Aaron ,if I ring he'll panic"
"ok"
Long story short...ened... Aaron had his phone on silent while it charged but fell asleep, we were all dog tired after moving, the men had worked and moved furniture as well.
 Don't panic Gemma,  but can she ring Leah...Shane will get go get  him to ring,....
.Leahs phone on silent.....BAHHHH..... 
Don't panic Gemma!!! 
We decided to go over and bang on Leahs door at 1.30 in the morning, she is almost as pregnant with twins too, she rings Benny the friend Aaron is staying with as his house has no furniture and 
she tells him
 "Gemma's water broke, Gem's parents are coming to get you" 
.PSHHHFHHHSHSHSHSHS white noise after WATERBROKE ..
so he gets in the car and heads for Leah's as we head to him.We didn't pass him.... Back to Leah's .......He says " :can I drive/"NO get in the back" (it's his car) At some point he would have to drive as he gets terrible motion sickness, but for now....NO....
FForward a  2 and half hour drive........we get to the hospital gate just as  Gemma rings "how far away are you ,it's hurting"  we drop Aaron off at the maternity doors and go park the car and make our way up to delivery. While we were finding Aaron, Gemma had WALKED in the cold over to the hospital, its not far but its cold and she was leaking!! but she didn't want to dial 8 and have everyone rush over when it was just her water .....

Anyhoo I digress, after a visit with Gemma and Aaron,Les and I went over to the residence to get some shuteye, (and give them a bit of time together)just got tucked in when Gemma rang, to tell us to get back over as they were going to ceasar her now instead of waiting until day shift,as her contractions had ramped up and the Doctor was there and would do it now.>>

at 6.30 and 6.32 am Gemma and Aarons  babies were born, mum and bubs healthy.

They are adorable!! Congratulations to the family including the excited grandparents! I love having a grandchild and will have the second one in September.

The babies looks so sweet all snuggled up together. Making me even more excited for when baby Alex is born!

Congratulations! My daughter Kylie went in on the 7th and had a C-section on Friday 8th. A little boy called Hayden. I was in Sydney for our sister's 50th so didn't get my cuddles until I returned to Canberra on Sunday.

Ami said...

I'm happy they're here and everyone is okay.

They're beautiful babies. So sweet. My favorite photo is the one Gemma took of them.

Congratulations to everyone all over the place!!

FruitCake said...

Sounds like there was more excitement surrounding the birth than the conception!
Congratulations to each and every one of you [all of the above].

Couldn't help noticing Piper is taller than Dominic, and in the last photo Dominic is already leaning his head to one side so Piper can stay comfy. Just sayin', is all.
Looking forward to the next 21 years to see how the relationship pans out :)

I thought that I'd already congratulated you on the beautiful babies.

I bet that you all had a wonderful Christmas.

Hope all is well and that you're not blogging because you are too busy with 'real' life.

Nearly every home in the world has some sort of online gaming device. Some people play online games as a livelihood, while others play for leisure. No matter why you are playing, games are not going anywhere. The advice below is truly priceless.

Try downloading a game demo prior to purchasing the actual game so that you can determine if you're going to enjoy it. Previewing a game can help you see whether you wish to buy the full version or not. Be careful, though, where you download the game from. Only download from a well-known site to avoid problems with your computer.

Try to limit gaming to no more than a few hours per day maximum. There is no doubt that gaming is addictive, and this has become a real problem for many people. Try to stick to playing online games for only a few hours each day. If you're someone who plays long hours, then it's best to take plenty of breaks during the day.

Always start by playing in beginner's mode. If you find the beginner mode too easy, simply restart the game at a more difficult level. Once you have played on a beginner level for awhile, you will find it much easier to eventually play on a harder level.

Hang onto those old online games you used to play. Trade in your games for new ones or for cash to maximize your investment. You can use store credits from your old games to go towards the purchase of new ones.

Before allowing your child to use a gaming system online, be sure that you have set it to "family friendly" options. This will filter out inappropriate content so your child will not be exposed to it. You can also determine how much they can chat with others while online.

Update your graphic drivers. If you do a lot of your gaming on your computer, you probably will want to have as clear a picture as possible. This is why you need the current graphic drivers. You can venture on over to the device manager section on your computer and see your latest graphic driver, then head to manufacturer's site to see if any new updates became available.

If you only play one or two genres of games, think about branching out. Most people tend to play just one kind of game. Trying out all sorts of video games makes it a lot of fun and a very rewarding experience.

You should make sure you seek nourishment when playing your video games. Video Games can get someone away from reality, even to the point where they are forgetting to take care of their basic needs. When you are playing computer games, remember to drink a lot of water because dehydration can make you ill.

You can get good deals by purchasing used online games. It is a good idea to buy a disc cleaner if you buy a lot of used games, though. You never know what sort of shape your game will be in when you do this. If your discs are really dirty a good cleaning kit will help to restore them. It is a good idea to look at several cleaning disc options. There are many kits like this on the market.

Figure out how to operate the safety and parental controls of any gaming system that comes into your home. You can likely make adjustments that keep kids from viewing mature content. Some allow each gaming profile to be customized separately, allowing adults to enjoy games not meant for younger audiences.

There are so many entertaining elements to video games, they cannot be covered in a single article. You should have found what you needed to understand right here. After a long hard day at the office or school, put your feet up, turn on the gaming system and enjoy!

Gaming has truly become a hobby for anyone with interests that run the full gamut. Online Games are a great way to just have some fun and relax once in awhile. The following paragraphs have some really good ideas regarding video games, so pay attention!

Save your game in multiple slots. Every now and then, save it in another one. There may be a time when you wish to return to the game and do something new. If you just keep saving as you go along, you won't have that option.

Try to limit gaming to no more than a few hours per day maximum. There is no doubt that gaming is addictive, and this has become a real problem for many people. Try to stick to playing computer games for only a few hours each day. If you're someone who plays long hours, then it's best to take plenty of breaks during the day.

The biggest choice to make as you enter the world of gaming is: computer or xbox? A lot of games come on many platforms, which gives you a lot of flexibility. But depending on the game, it might be best to play certain ones on a particular platform since it works best.

Be careful when it comes to playing online games. You will sometimes have to pay monthly fees in order to gain access. If you have a child who wants to join an online-gaming site, then you should check it out first. Find out if there are any fees, and if so, whether the game is worth it.

Before allowing your child to use a games ps3 online, be sure that you have set it to "family friendly" options. This will filter out inappropriate content so your child will not be exposed to it. You can also determine how much they can chat with others while online.

Computer Games have ratings. As a parent, you need to understand these ratings. Use this system to ensure you are purchasing age appropriate computer games. Before buying your child a game, take a minute to look at the rating to make sure the game is age-appropriate.

If you are buying a new gaming system, make sure that everything works after you purchase it. Even if you're not going to use every accessory for it, check the various ports to see if they're in working condition. If you discover a problem months after your purchase, such as a broken headphone jack, you won't be able to exchange the console for a new one.

Of course, you will have your favorites if you are a serious computer game hobbyist. It's important that these are not the only types of games you play all the time, though. Try out different styles of games every now and again. Finding new genres of games can be an exciting experience.

Reserve games that are high in demand to ensure that you will get a copy. You may get special bonuses when ordering early. The bonuses could be some special features, outfits, or anything that could help you when it comes to playing. The only way you can get them is by ordering early.

Figure out how to operate the safety and parental controls of any gaming system that comes into your home. You can likely make adjustments that keep kids from viewing mature content. Some allow each gaming profile to be customized separately, allowing adults to enjoy games not meant for younger audiences.

Computer Games were there in the past, they're here in the present, and they will be there in the future. It is unbelievable to see their evolution. It is astounding to think of what the future may hold. So much fun to thing about it and imagine all the possibilities of future games.

Make sure you get a good eight hours snooze time in each night, to be ready and able to strategize yourself to the next level!

If you are viewing a how-to video online, make sure you thoroughly understand what you are doing. Avoid any deviation in technique, as the slightest difference can add up to disaster. A full screen view will help you to understand all of the details involved in the game.

It can be helpful to play a trial version of a game you are unsure about purchasing. These video game trials are extremely helpful in helping you determine if you want to spend your hard earned cash on a game. If you the trial of a certain game, try buying the full version.

Get up frequently as you play a game. If you do not take breaks, your body will remain stuck in the same position. Additionally, if you sit immobile for long periods of times, you will get cramps and perhaps even blood clots. Your body will thank you for your efforts.

If you only play one or two genres of games, think about branching out. Most people tend to play just one kind of game. Trying out all sorts of computer games makes it a lot of fun and a very rewarding experience.

Check out ratings when buying games for children. These games are rated for a reason. Any game with ratings like A or M are totally inappropriate for children. Check the website of the ESRB to learn more.
