At long last, here's the baby blog! I have been just a bit busy, so getting to the blog took longer than I would have liked. But better late than never!
Me just before my c-section:
Both babies in the OR:
Baby A: Caitlin Clare, 3:46 pm, January 11 2013, 5 pounds 11 ounces, 18.5 inches
Baby B: Madelyn Rose, 3:48 pm, January 11 2013, 6 pounds 7 ounces, 20 inches
Four generations of DH's family:
We caused a gawker's traffic jam while exiting the hospital:
Our brand new family at home:
DH is holding Caitlin and I'm holding Madelyn. Caitlin is sweet, sensitive, and a slow eater and Madelyn is a little feist ball who tolerates no delays in getting what she wants. Caitlin continues to be noticeably smaller, has a fairer and pinker complexion, lighter hair, and attached ear lobes. Madelyn is a bit darker and more sallow but her hair is lighter and her ear lobes are detached. So no matter how much they look alike later, we'll always have a way to tell them apart!
We're settling into a routine and managing to get enough sleep to function. Things get a little easier most days and we're proud of how well we're making it work.
I hope you all are doing well!
