Warning......proud grandparent baby picture overload

I am proud to present Minky and Dinky.

Minky, given name Alexander Clarke McLeod (going to be called Xander)  was born at 9.42 am weighing 5lb 9 oz.

Dinky, given name Charlotte Rose Mcleod (going to be called Lottie) was born at 9.44am weighing 6lb 3 oz.

There is a distinct size difference in them, easy to tell who is who.

Bob meets the twins - Minky is on the left

Daughter was kept in the labour suite until 7pm tonight as they were worried about her bleeding. Mother and both babies doing well, both babies taken to feeding as well.

Dinky has curly hair

Bob and Fifi are over the moon with them, Bob had a cuddle with his brother but then went and sat with mum. Fifi had a cuddle with both babies.
