yes the babies are here!!! I came home yesterday (after nearly 4 weeks up in the hospital) but the babies are still in the baby clinic. Chloe Elise and Zoe Alyssa were born on July 28th at 8.18am. They had to go straight away to the clinic as both had low blood sugar and Chloe was a couple of degrees cold..she weighed in at 5 pounds. Zoe also had low blood sugar and only weighed 3 pounds 8 oz - which shocked me and the doctors......they are both doing great now. Zoe was up to 3 pounds 12 yesterday and is feeding very, very well...as is Chloe.

Chloe is probably coming home towards the end of the week - all she has to do now is maintain her temperature - which she has been doing well so far. Zoe just has to gain more weight - and will probably come home towards the end of next week.

They both are super healthy - just small........and they both look like daddy!!!!!!!

I've attached some pics of them for you...

Melissa -


Congratulations on the arrival of your babies. How far along were you? If you have a chance, please share the babies birth story here before they come home. You won't have much time when they are both at home - even though I know you are staying busying going from home to the hospital to visit them.


Also, please come over to the first year multiples board and introduce yourself. Just click on my siggy below.
