They're Here!

2/24/2008 twin boys: twin A 6 lbs 14 oz, 19.75 inches at 8:44pm, twin B 6 lbs 8 oz, 20 inches at 9:44pm

Mom and the boys are doing great!

Preliminary names are Ashton and Phoenix, but that's still being debated.




I was going to tell the story, but have been informed that I'll miss too many important details, so I'll leave for Jen when she comes home. In brief: Twin A delivered just fine, Twin B delivered breech, but both are doing just fine. B just got a little more beat up. You can kind of see the swelling in his face compared to his brother. Pretty emotional delivery, but we're just happy they're both safe and well. Cash is still doesn't know what to make of his new brothers.

YEAH!!!! They're finally here. My boys were getting anxious for their future college roommates to arrive. What cuties! They have the greatest chubby little faces. How long are they?

Welcome to the world of twins. You're in for a crazy ride!

Okay I am crying now. I am sending the pictures on to my friends and I just have tears streaming down my face. I love them already!!!! I want to hold them! I'm coming with mom tomorrow! Just kidding, I guess. My turn will come, but how did I get 3rd in this rotation?

Congratulatories! They look like handsome little men indeed. So glad to hear that everybody is doing ok. Good luck for the next year or so, continue taking lots of pics because I certainly don't remember much from the last 13 months since my twins arrived.

Jenilee said...

Congrats!! They are so cute. Like everyone else said, I too wish I could come and help hold those babies. But, I am sure adding a 2 1/2 yr old and a 3 week old baby to the mix would not help. We miss you guys. I am glad all are doing well. I am sure Cash we be such a fun big brother.
