Our BOYS are here!
Sun, 07-16-2006 - 6:30pm
Elijah David (4lbs 15oz, 18 1/4") and Samuel Frederick (5lbs 15oz, 18 1/2") were born on Saturday, 24 June at 2:54 and 3:01pm via a vaginal, unmedicated delivery after about 8 hours of true labor. I owe a sincere debt of gratitude to our doula and our OB who made it a truly wonderful and memorable experience (I owe it to the boys, too, since they were both vertex!). The boys were born at 35w1d, so had to spend 10 days in the NICU. Both are home now and we are trying to get nursing started, slowly but surely. Both are nearing or over 6lbs now, but are still on oxygen, largely due to our altitude here (7,000 ft+) and their still immature lungs. Hopefully, they'll be done with that soon and we'll have a somewhat easier time of getting out of the house!

Hi Cindi,

Congrats on the birth of your boys. It is great to hear of another vaginal birth. We just found out a couple of weeks ago that we are having twins.

BTW, I am in Castle Rock. Lived in the Springs for years.

Again congrats and I am glad to hear they made it home healthy!!
