BALTIMORE (WJZ)—WJZ has been inundated with calls and emails asking about Meteorologist Bernadette Woods and her beautiful twin boys.

Jessica Kartalija spent the afternoon with the happy family, who has plenty to be thankful for.

In August, Hurricane Irene blew through Maryland. Pregnant with twins, Woods–usually at the center of our storm coverage–was visibly absent.

After being on bed rest, Woods went into preterm labor and was rushed to Johns Hopkins Hospital.

“They decided they wanted to be little meteorologists too,” she said. “Then from there, we had 11 weeks in the hospital, and finally, finally we got them home last week.”

As the center of the storm passed over Baltimore, the twins were delivered–11 weeks premature.

Thomas was 2 pounds 14 ounces, and Daniel was three pounds three ounces. Now, at just over 8 pounds each, they’re keeping their parents very busy.

Woods describes their daily routine as “sleep for a little bit, then we change them, then feed.  Sleep for a little bit, change them, then feed.”

And both are still on monitors regulating their little heartbeats.

“With premature babies, they need to learn how to breathe,” said the twins’ father, Matt. “That’s part of the reason they spent so much time in the NICU.”

With two strong and beautiful boys, mom and dad couldn’t be more proud.

“It’s amazing to finally have you guys home, isn’t it?”  Woods said.

Mom, dad and the boys spent weeks at Mount Washington Pediatric and Johns Hopkins Hospital, where they say the doctors and nurses were incredible.

And in case you’re wondering, Woods will be back on air before the start of the New Year.
