Life with Bennett and Loie

Well in case you haven't heard... our beautiful twins arrived Wednesday, March 28 and 5:43 and 5:45 pm via c-section.
A little bit about the birth... Contractions started Tuesday so we went to the hospital, but were sent home when labor stopped. The next day contractions started again, so we went to our regularly scheduled OB appointment on Wednesday afternoon, where our doctor decided that the babies were ready to come out.
I was in active labor all afternoon/evening, but the babies were breech (feet first) so a c-section ended up being necessary. The surgery was not a great experience-not painful, but very scary and lots of pulling going on.
Bennett has been in our room with us since the birth, but Loie has been needing a little extra care in the NICU. She is doing great! but just needed a little help with breathing and eating.
Here is a photo from Friday, when I went up to the NICU for some Kangaroo Care (skin to skin contact).
We will be in the hospital at least until Sunday morning. We welcome visitors, but appreciate a heads-up just in case it's not a good time.
Reunited and it feels so good!
