The babies have arrived!

Friday May 8th we welcomed our little ones into the world, after my water broke at 1:30 am. Introducing:

Eli Marcus
3lbs 14 oz
17.5 in.


Emerson Elaine
3lbs 3oz
16.75 in.


I'm too sore and exhausted to go into details now but Eli is breathing on his own, while Emerson is on CPAP. The whole birth story to come later. I'm hoping I am able to go down and see them some more today. I only saw them briefly yesterday after the C-section (for about a minute each). I've been dependent on Marcus for video and pictures.
