The Babies Arrive!!

The three babies, all together, as they make their way from the operating room to the nursery around 1:45 PM today. From left to right, Baby Boy 2, Baby Boy 1, and Baby Girl.

The happy mama.

The two photos above are of Baby Boy 2 -- weighing in at 1.96 kilos (4.3 lbs).

Baby Girl -- weighing in at 1.6 kilos (3.5 lbs).

Baby Boy 1 -- weighing in at a hefty 2.53 kilos (5.5 lbs). Unfortunately, he needs a little help breathing, so you see here a tube giving him a relatively low dosage of oxygen. This RDS is relatively common for babies born premature, and his case does not appear to be, at this point, particularly serious.

Please pray for us!

Below is a video I took (about 4 mins) of my first visit to see the babies in the nursery.
