Hello, this is Erika's DH. We are happy to announce the arrivial of:
7lbs 6oz - 22in - 9:35am - 1/8/07
7lbs 4.5oz - 20.25in - 9:38am - 1/8/07
(Born at home, both in water)
Mother and daughters are all doing well. The babies came out ready to meet the world, speaking their minds immediately and hungery. We will likely need time to complete testing to determine if they are fraternal or identical. Sometimes they look ID, sometimes FRAT, and the placenta shows no clear indication.
Erika had a heck of a labor. She'll share the story a bit later on, once she has actually gotten some sleep since it has been over 48 hours for both of us.
Thank you all for your thoughts, prayers, and vibes.
