I’m writing up a big post about delivery day and our hospital stay, but I wanted to get their stats up on and on the blog for all the curious people out there!
Baby A- Girl, was born first at 1:52pm. She weighed in at 5lbs 9ozs and was 18.5 inches long. Her head was 13 inches, and chest 12.25 inches. She has a full head of dark hair and blue eyes, that will likely turn brown too! She is sweet and dainty, and is the first of our 4 kids to NOT have Daddy’s chin. Although she resembles her brother quite a bit, we all think she will end up looking more like me- can’t wait to see!
Baby B- Boy, was born just a minute later at 1:53pm. He was a hefty 6lbs 11ozs and was 19.75 inches long. His head was 13.25 inches, and check 12.75 inches. He also has a head full of dark hair and blue eyes. He seems amazingly larger than her, although the weight difference is only a pound. He is an exact carbon copy of his older brother from Daddy’s chin to his personality!
As far as mama goes, I am healing really well- every nurse has been very impressed with the job my doctor did on my incision! I am up and walking and free of any more tubes. I can now eat whatever I would like and move around freely. I am definitely sore and can’t lift anything heavy or do any bending for a bit, but overall I am feeling good.
In fact, we are all doing so well that we will most likely be heading home Wednesday afternoon! Can’t wait!
My good friend Stacy gave me a baby gift in the form of a mini-session at the hospital to capture the babies in all of their day old glory. Here’s some of the pictures.
In the hats Gammie made them and the shirts I made them 😀
More to come later!!
