Ben and Andy

Andrew Blaine and Benjamin Alan officially joined our family early on Saturday morning. Andrew was came at 4:07 weighing 6 lbs. Benjamin followed 6 minutes later weighing 4 lbs 10 oz.

Their little lungs weren't quite ready to work without assistance so they were rushed to St. Mark's NICU. It was a challenge to find a NICU in the valley with two openings. They originally wanted to split them up, but thanks to the wonderful pediatricians at St. Marks they made room to keep them together.

I was able to be discharged from Alta View early so I could go see my little boys on Sunday. They are beautiful and doing so well. They are breathing much better and now they are focusing on learning to eat on their own.

Here is a picture of Ben at the NICU.


Here's me holding Andrew. I don't have any close shots of Andy on this computer. I'll take more pictures when I go visit them this morning.

I'm glad to see that you are home and feeling better. What an ordeal! Sounds like things are finally calming down for you. Hope you get to bring your babies home soon. Congratulations on being a new mom, twice! I hope everything goes well. Keep us posted.

PS. Sarah is super jealous that you had your babies first. She's really tired of being pregnant.

I'm SO HAPPY for you! You're going to be such a great mom.... although I want you to know that I'll be terribly disappointed if at least one of your kids doesn't have a hammock hanging in their room! ;-)

Congrats again!
