Welcome Caden and Colton!

On Wednesday, January 6, our baby boys were born! After three and a half years our dreams came true. Here are their stats:

Caden David born at 9:56am weighing 7#1oz measuring 20 1/2" long.
Colton Louis born at 9:57am weighing 6#14oz measuring 20 3/4" long.

Caden just because
David after my Dad
Colton after my sister Nicole
Louis after my DH, his dad and his grandpa's middle name

On the day of my c-section my liver enzymes were completely in normal range and my platelets were still low, but high enough to be awake during the c-section. My DH and Mom were able to be in the surgery room with me to witness the birth of these two little angels.

Once I have had a chance to reflect on the day of their birth I will do a whole post on it. For now, I am just trying to absorb being a mom of two newborns and time for reflection is not in my vocabulary right now:) I will also be posting pics sometime soon also.

One good thing that happened last night, on our second night home, is that both boys slept from 9:15-2:15 and from 2:45 to 5:45. Ahhh, sleep was so wonderful after the first night home did not go so well.
