Mandy Williams could not wait to become a grandmother, but she never really expected that she'd welcome both of her grandchildren on the same day!
But that's exactly what happened when her daughter and son both had babies in the very same maternity ward at the hospital, and pretty much went through the whole labor and delivery process at exactly the same time.
Little Mabli Elin Stokes and Hallie Rose Jones are reportedly doing well, and their grandma couldn't be happier or more proud.
And while Mandy was only able to be physically present for the birth of one of the babies due to the timing, she still says that having both grandbabies arrive on the same day was "amazing," and said the whole experience "felt like a real family occasion." (Man, I'll say!)
It must have been a regular party in the maternity ward that day, and while it was a joyous experience for Mandy, it had to be pretty special for her daughter and son too.
I am an only child, so I'll never really be able to relate to the bond that exists between siblings, but I imagine going through the birth of your children together is a pretty special thing. It's not every day that you welcome a daughter into the family and then go down the hall to meet your niece right after that!
Of course, there is the chance that one of the moms may have felt like her moment was stolen a bit, but I'm sure cradling her new baby in her arms was more than enough of a consolation prize.
The fact that these two little beauties arrived on the same day is awesome enough, but making the experience even more exciting is that they both went home from the hospital on the very same day as well. Judging from the way things have gone so far, it'll be a big shock if these two don't grow up as best friends who do everything together. As far as having a lot in common goes, they're off to a great start!
Do you think having a baby on the same day as your sibling would be special, or steal your thunder a little bit?
