They’re Here!!!

8 Feb

Our twins have arrived and they are just amazing! We’d been excited to meet them but nothing prepared us for actually seeing them come into this world and holding them close. We are seriously in love.

I went into labor early Sunday morning and labored them naturally until it was time to push at which point the Dr. discovered complications that meant an emergency c-section. All turned out well though and we feel very very blessed.

Everett James arrived at 6:33pm, weighing 6 lbs 7oz and is 19.5″ long.

Lucia Grace followed him at 6:36pm, beating him at 6lbs 8oz and measuring 19.25″ long.

Both Rhett and Lucy look like they have red hair; eye color is undetermined. We’ll be putting up pictures once Patrick gets a chance to run and pick up our camera cord, by tonight for sure.

For now, we’re just all enjoying getting to know each other. Grandma Luisa arrived shortly after the babies’ arrival. Finn will be coming by to meet them in a few hours.

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. We look forward to our friends and family getting to know them and being part of their lives.

    Love the nicknames! I’ll bet they’re just adorable and can’t wait for pictures.

    We told Rachel Finn has a new brother and sister.

    She says, “Finn! Oh, he gave me an airplane. I used to play at his house. But…Finn don’t talk. Why is he a boy? Is he growing up? Is he growing up because of the new babies?”

    I think that means, “Congratulations, Finn, on becoming a big brother! You’ll do great!”
