Welcome to the world Lucas and Harrison





That's right-I actually have a reasonable excuse this time for my delay in blogging: my babies are here!!!!!! They arrived the day after my last post. Exactly 35 weeks-you guys are so smart as I look over at my poll!!

I think I'll break the birth story down into a couple of blog entries, but I'll just start off with the brief info everyone wants to know. On Sunday, July 12th, 2009, Lucas Edgar (Baby A) was born at 8:30pm and weighed 5 lbs 9 oz and he was 18 inches long. Harrison Paul (Baby B) was born at 8:32pm and weighed 6 lbs 4 oz and was also 18 inches long. I had them via C-section as I had developed pre-eclampsia and the docs decided not to wait any further to deliver them.

Baby Luke has the fullest head of black hair and most beautiful little face.



Baby Harry has lighter brown hair and has the best smiles and roaming blue eyes.



I think they have similar facial features. Suffice it to say, we are just completely in love with both of them.



Both boys are doing fantastic. We all left the hospital together on July 16. It's just absolutely amazing to be a new Mother to these precious boys. I'm learning how to be their Mother better each and every day. We are even tandem breastfeeding. :-)

Love to all and thanks for all the support. I'll write my birth story as soon as I get a chance, but haven't had a moment since delivery to even put this post up! Sleeping is critical these days!!

I had followed your old blog up to your pregnancy, but after being out of the loop for awhile wasn't aware of the new digs. So happy to have seen the news on L&F.

Congratulations. They are beautiful!!

M. said...

Oh my gosh, Jill!! They're absolutely gorgeous! I can't believe how big and healthy they look -- and go you, taking them straight home! 35 weeks was obviously long enough for those two little guys. Good luck over the next few weeks -- just keep telling yourself that it gets easier, because it seriously does :)
