Just got word that the twins have arrived! I’m an uncle five and six times over now. Amy went into surgery around 2:30 this afternoon and they were born less than an hour later.
Here are the quick details:
- Brody Joel: born 3:08 p.m.–6 lbs, 4 oz, 18.5 inches
- Lane Eric: born 3:09 p.m.–7 lbs, 11 oz, 20 inches
That’s about 14 pounds of baby in my petite sister-in-law’s volleyball/track frame. I think she’s relieved.
Lane inhaled some amniotic fluid during the birth and is in a bubble for the time-being. Not sure how serious that is, but my mom didn’t sound too concerned. A quick scan on the Web suggests it could cause respiratory infection.
I’ll post pictures this weekend.
