Congrats!!! They are sooo cute!!!
Thank you for the links. We did extensive research for months, before we took the plunge and got littermates. We know the risks, and have taken a lot of precautions to prevent them. They are crated in seperate places in the house, though for now I have one big crate in my bedroom that I put them in while I shower in the mornings. They play together and alone. We walk them seperately, spending a good amount of time outside with each. I have been working on some commands with them. Once they their shots, we will begin taking them out seperately. Allowing them to socialize, meet other people and other dogs. Taking them to the dog park, while the other stays at home. Then maybe taking the other to tractor supply. Vice Versa.They're cute...but please read these articles so you start off on the right foot. These are just a few I found, there are a ton more. Good luck with them.

Raising and Training Littermates
Thanks for this!My BIL had 2 dogs (male/female) from the same litter. He got them through a rescue, and didn't know the risks. He was upset that the rescue encouraged them to take both, in hindsight. His dogs did exhibit aggression from a young age (these are not GRs, FWIW).
However, they did extensive training and management, and now the dogs are settled in just fine.
