They’re here!

Two perfect, beautiful, healthy baby boys!!! They each weighed 5lb15oz and A got 9/9 on first apgar and B got 8/9. Both delivered vaginally and although B was also vertex, he had to be removed by breech extraction because he was coming out like superman – hands first! Thankfully I had the epidural because the doc literally had his arms and hands up in my uterus!

We are so in love. Today is such a special day.
