Arrival

Sorry this is so late in the making. The babies were born at 1:21 and 1:29 am on 12/23. Baby A is now officially xxxxx xxxxxxxx and Baby B is now yyyyyy yyyyy.

Apple weighed in at 4 lbs 11 oz and Banana was 4 lbs 8 ozs. Everyone is doing fine but extremely exhausted. Banana ended up breach and they has some trouble getting him out. they think they may have separated his shoulder and they have taken some x-rays to determine for sure. it sounds a lot worse than it is. both babies are fine and just finished their first feeding. Grandma and Grandpa got to help feed and hold the babies. We have tons of pictures and I will leave it up to denise on what she wants to post.

We will post more information in the morning (which is actually now). Thanks again to all and sorry for the delayed finale.

How funny that after all the angst over Bayla's size she weighed MORE than her brother?!

Too funny about Bayla's size - guess you just can't trust those ultrasounds :) I'm sure you'll miss them, right? lol

Enjoy all the cuddles - this is such an exciting time!

Katie said...

Congratulations to the new family! What beautiful names! Did Denise not only deliver twins vaginally, but also one breech....or was there a c-section for Nathan? Either way, what an incredible woman!

Melanie said...

Wonderful, wonderful news. It makes me teary to think about what a journey it's been to get to this place. Heartful congratulations and blessings to your new family (and of course existing family!). I can't wait to see pictures of the little munchkins.

Woo Hoo! I was following along, but didn't have opportunity to comment. So glad things went well for you! Happy Birthday Bayla and Nathan!!

I found your blog through thirdfloorhome.blogspot.com and have been fooling the birth of your twins! Congrats!! I am a little confussed though. Maybe you could answer a question if you get a chance. Why did you have to devliver in an operating room if it was a natural birth? Was it just in case reasons?

s.e. said...

Congratulations Denise! I am so glad it is finally over for you. You did it and I am assuming without a c-section. Twins and a breach baby. You definitely have bragging rights now.

Wishing you a speedy recovery and that you will feel rested and be able to feel the joy soon.

Welcome Bayla and Nathan! Your Mommy is so ready to show you the world and has loved for so very long.

Jen said...

I am so thrilled to hear that everyone is here! And she weighed more than her brother? What a hoot!

Congratulations! I can't wait to hear more and see more!

And we know his middle name isn't after the coin hitting Urlacher in the head last night, right? Just kidding.

Congrats again!

Mo and Will said...
