The Twins' Birth

Happy Birthday to Ethan and Lucas!

After so much work and planing the day has come to meet the twins.  
Ethan aka "twin A" arrives with two pushes.
7 minutes later Lucas aka "twin B" greets Mom.  Everyone shares the collective relief that all is well.

Saying goodbye as Dad heads to Children's Hospital to be with Ethan who will later have open heart surgery at 12 hours old.  I am very happy to report that Ethan is doing well after a 3 week hospital stay.  He and his brother Lucas are already hatching plans for how to keep Mom and Dad awake as much as possible.
