I don't have much energy still so I will just give the details and show some pictures.

Blake Robert was born at 12:22 pm December 7th via "emergency" c-section (it wasn't really an emergency it was just unplanned). He weighed 5 lbs 1 oz and was 17 inches long. Elaine Michelle was born at 12:23 pm and weighed 5 lbs 9 oz and was 16.5 inches long.

Now here are some pictures!

Last belly pic:

Sorry to have to take a picture of a picture, here is our first family photo! :)

The first time I got to hold Blake, 2 days old.

The babies in the knit hats my friend made for them.

Being 5 weeks premature the babies aren't doing too well and I have still not been able to hold Elaine. It's not looking like they will be coming home with me but hopefully tomorrow Blake will be released from the NICU to the nursery and from there they can release him to me.

Amy, thanks for posting the pics and giving us an update. They're both beautiful! I'm sorry to hear they're "not doing well"... I hope you are just facing the typical preemie stuff and nothing more difficult than that (although I truly understand how difficult and scary the typical preemie stuff can be too). I'm especially sorry you haven't been able to hold Elaine yet, I can't imagine having to wait that long. :( Hang in there! I'm sending lots of P&PT your way!!

Amy,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write and post pics! They're all beautiful photos and the babies are just darling. I love their hats too!

Was your mom able to make it down in time to help you with Jensen?

Saying a prayer the babies will be home with you soon. (((HUGS)))
