Six.

IMG_4783
Archer and Fable got to meet their sisters today. Both babies were done with their various antibiotics and light treatments and Archer and Fable's back-to-school colds had improved, allowing for us all to be together for the first time.

Hal and I were already with the babies when Archer and Fable appeared in the window with my mom, their eyes wide and smiles big. They washed their hands in the hallway and moments later burst through the doors, towards Hal and me and their babies.

I'll never forget the look on Archer's face when he met Fable for the first time, and I'll never forget the expressions Fable and Archer wore today - faces I did not recognize, new expressions for the sisters they'd been waiting for, pacing the house wondering aloud what they'd look like and how small their hands would be. New looks with new eyes on new faces.

"Her hand is the size of my smallest finger," he said.

"She hasda smooshiest cheeks."

"I think she must love me because she won't let go of my hand!"

"The baby eat her baba all up?"

"Baby Bo, I'm your brother!"

"I help you with Rev-ah-rie?"

...And just like that, we were six.

You have a gorgeous family! Best of luck on your recovery, and I think I can speak for us all when I say that I hope to see many many pictures of them in the future.

Krazy Kiwi | 7:15 PM

Oh my goodness! Fable's face!!!!! It doesnt get any better than that. They are so cute. And Archer. It's like he gets to be a big brother all over again. I hope try can go home soon so they can be together all of the time.

Krazy Kiwi | 7:19 PM

I think Hal was meant to be a Daddy. It's a good thing you made that happen. He looks like he's in heaven!

Amber @ Not Mommy | 7:20 PM

As scary as the NICU was for us, those 5 weeks hold some of the most beautiful memories for me. I wish you didn't have to go through the process, but the experience can be amazing. Your family is perfection <3

This Archer and this Fable never existed before that moment! They will never again not be Boheme and Reverie's big bro and sis. Amazing.

Little Red Dog Studios | 7:56 PM

I too am crying!!! the Woolf Six! I remember you posting pics of Archer when he was just like that. And then I remember his face when he first saw Fable like that. and now this, both of them seeing Bo and Rev for the first time. I am so happy for you.

Jill | 8:14 PM

Congratulations beautiful family of six! So amazing! And incredibly happy for you!

Hang in there with the whole c-section thing. It does get better, I promise! But it does take a while and you'll cry because you laugh really hard and it hurts and then you'll cry because it's hurting and it's a never ending cycle---well, that's not true. It does end. It won't feel like you were sawed in half forever!!

Hugs to all of you!

Mama | 8:14 PM

I just check your blog a few mins ago WAITING for MORE... then you post. I love the "smooshiest" cheeks! LOVE LOVE LOVE!! So glad they finally got to meet them.

Emily | 8:18 PM

Tearing up here too. Such a special moment you were able to capture. I can't get over Fable in these pictures. Just so beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing, and here's hoping your family of six is home for the weekend!

Emily | 8:19 PM

I can't be the first who's mentioned how remarkably related you all look. It is obvious those four beauties belong to you and Hal, and to each other. So happy for all six of you!

I'm excited to have my first pregnancy result in twins, but there's something undeniably magical about bringing new babes to wondrous, wonder-struck siblings. A million blessings. My live and I read your blog religiously in anticipation of our tiny girls.

P.S. I almost fell out of my pillow nest when I read the baby names, as one of our twins' middle names is to be Reverie. I've been guarding them so secretively! But it's so lovely that I'm more than pleased to be sharing it with another twin momma. xx

Zoe | 8:37 PM

I cried! So happy for you all. Much love. xxx

Rebekah | 8:41 PM

Oh my goodness. Those babes look like love all wrapped up! Congratulations, they are very lucky to be born into such a wonderful family. Those photos of Fable and Archer meeting their little sisters will be such a treasure for them years from now!

Saryiel | 10:51 PM

omg, tears are streaming down my face with pure joy for you! As precious as the picture of Fable actually feeding Rev is, I still can't get over that ONE of her, with the index finger of one hand in baby's (not sure which one, sorry) hand and the other index finger coming up to her face - THAT is the eyes of an adoring big sister. Couldn't have been captured any better ;) So happy for you and yout ridiculously beautiful family!

Holy Happy Family! Those pictures are precious. Made me teary. Congrats again.

lola + oliver | 6:27 AM

This post was BEAUTIFUL.

As one of five kids, I can tell you that there is nothing more wonderful than siblings. We are like a kick-ass tribe of awesome people that share the same genes, inside jokes, and history. Even now that we are all "grown," my siblings and I are still very close and I know they will always be there for me in a way others cannot (simply because of our shared understanding and connection, parts of me that others simply don't "get").

Not to mention, you learn so much growing up in a big family (conflict management, accepting others as they are, functioning in a "group" while maintaining individuality, etc). In a sense, you have given your children a wonderful gift by giving them siblings. I'm so happy for you all!!

Your family is beautiful & blessed. Thinking of you all and wishing you the best!

Samantha | 6:35 AM

Oh sweet, sweet babies. I love Archer's proud face in all of these pictures and I adore Fable with her chin propped in her hand just admiring her baby sister. I WANT SIX BABIES, TOOOOO.

jessica | 10:40 AM

BEAUTIFUL!!!!
Ok let me just tell you that c-sections do hurt. anyone who tells you they were up shopping by day 2 is lying. I was in major pain and i am not a baby about those things. i had two other kids to take care of and then i had my first c-section and thought i'd be able to get up and clean the house, etc. just like i did after the other 2. let me tell you- NO WAY!! i thought something was wrong with me because everyone else seemed to remember their csection as easy.
also, laughing is the devil, yes! and even worse, choking on orange juice going down the wrong pipe. if someone wouldve handed me a gun in that moment i wouldve shot myself rather than keep coughing.
glad no one had a gun.

Heather | 12:48 PM

Such a beautiful family! Your post made me cry today (in a good way). I have a 3.5 yr old & we've been waiting to adopt a sibling for him for a year now...I know he's going to be such a great big brother, and I can see him saying/doing some of these things, once our baby arrives. He asks about our baby constantly, so I know he's ready. If you had any doubts about how Bo & Rev would fit into your family, I think you've just set them to rest. It was meant to be. Congrats again!

I love the smooshy cheeks photo :)

jessica | 4:50 PM

OH AND.... i realize now that some of the pain from csection that had me doubled over may have been gas! but not the kind you can get out- just the kind that bloats you and feels like someone is stabbing you. no amount of beans can help.

Fairly Odd Mother | 7:09 PM

W | 7:20 PM

Many congrats! You are doing great!

i have to admit i stopped reading boards and blogs months ago because i was sensitive about having a difficult twin pregnancy and it seemed like all pregnant with twins people i talked to had big fat babies. i was so jealous and scared because i couldn't gain weight, my babies were beyond small and i had gestational diabetes, my dr told me i'd be lucky to make it to 35 weeks.
i am in LA also and i had my twins via c section at 34 weeks 1 day..one was 2 lbs 12 ounce and the other 3 lbs 11 oz.that was 8 weeks ago and one of them is still in nicu. i have a 3 year old also and it has been a long, emotional road, i am still walking that road with my one little girl unable to take the bottle still. i am so torn in all directions. all i can do is take it moment by moment and know life will be so much sweeter because of all this.
Hope you girls came home.

So many happy tears... Just what I needed this morning. What a wonderful family of six--Bo and Rev are so blessed to have Archer and Fable as big brother and big sister. Your family is truly lovely--thank you for sharing this beautiful day with all of us (now must go sniffle some more and look at it all again).

Can't believe how emotional I am following this awesome journey of your growing family, best wishes and loads of love from a total stranger in Ottawa, Canada! The new arrivals are beyond beautiful! Your writing has touched me many times but today for some reason, I am compelled to wish you and the whole family much happiness in the future!

Archer and Fable's comments are so amazingly sweet, you must have been holding back tears (I WAS!). And Bo and Rev are just so gorgeous. Hope all 6 are home soon! You will clearly have lots of help from the proud big brother and sister.

Tears of joy! I can't wait to show my little girl her new sibling (still many months away, but your photos of Fable just make me melt).

My heart just melts at the sight of your beautiful family. The kids reactions are priceless. So glad you were able to get them down before they are forgotten.

Looking forward to even more stories of the older kids teaching R&B.

Hope you are doing well and are able to get some rest.

There's nothing more special than seeing your children meet for the first time. Your family is beautiful.

Ray | 11:05 PM

Beautiful family of six. I don't think life could get anymore perfect. Lots of love and blessings to you all. I hope the healing process is quick and easy for you, and that getting into the groove of six is smooth sailing. <3 With not much tears. =P

P.S. Archer and Fable already rock as big brother and sister, to Reverie and Boheme. ^o^

And you rock for getting them here!! <3

Michelle | 2:04 PM

I love their reactions to meeting their new baby sisters, completely priceless. Thanks for sharing!

I guess I visit a bit too infrequently! Congrats!!!! So glad to see the girls arrived safely! I agree on the whole Csection business - It sucks and I don't know why anyone would choose one! My twins arrived at 36 5/7 weeks and didn't have a NICU stay. I'm sure it's torture in many ways but at least this gives you a bit of time to heal up before having to care for them at home. I had a hilarious plan to borrow a motor home and park it in the hospital parking lot to live out of if my twins were in NICU. (We also live about 30 min from the hospital we delivered at). I knew I wouldn't be able to drive on pain meds and was super paranoid about all the what ifs?
Sending support for quick healing for you and graduating for the girls. They are beautiful!!!
