6 Days Old: A Quick Update

I have so many posts brewing in my head: C-section not being as scary/weird/painful as I'd imagined, NICU stay for Egan, velamentous cord insertion and a true cord knot for Zoe, realizing my preferred Attachment Parenting style was/is more for my comfort than for the babies', etc. but it's really busy around here! I thought I should come on, though, just to let you all know that the babies were delivered safely and are doing well. 

They are also spectacularly gorgeous (in my humble opinion):

L: Egan Mitchell (born 2/4/11 at 3:22 pm, 4 lbs 12 oz, 18 3/4")
R: Zoe Ruth (born 2/4/11 at 3:19 pm, 5 lbs 5 oz, 19")

Thank you so much for your comments and well wishes!

Love and hugs,

Today's the Day!

Well, I'm at the hospital! At my regular OB appointment this morning (36w2d) I was 3-4 cm dilated and Zoe is presenting toes first. So they want me here at the hospital in case my water breaks and I'm scheduled for a C-section at 2pm CST!
