Birth Announcement: A Double Blessing Realized!

On Thursday, May 28th, 2009, at 36 6/7 weeks gestation, Travis and I welcomed into the world our precious twin baby girls.  Isabel Hope (Baby A) was born at 9:11 a.m., measuring 3 lbs. 15.8 oz. and 17 3/4 in. long; and Elliana Faith (Baby B) was born at 9:13 a.m., measuring 5 lbs. 10.2 oz. and 18 in. long.  Both babies were born in good health; but Isabel, because of her small size, was admitted to the NICU (where she remains) soon after birth.  The picture below was taken in the NICU the day Elliana and I were discharged.  It was the first time I was able to see my babies together and the moment at which I began to fully experience the reality of what I have called from the beginning a double blessing.

Stay tuned for more on the birth story of Isabel and Elliana!

    Congratulations on your “Double Blessings”.
    How exciting! I hope that you are recovering nicely from the birth, and able to hold up for the double feedings,…double changings,…double bathing,…double dressing,…etc. But twice the love sounds wonderful!!!

    Have a special day with your special babies.

  11. What a beautiful mommy you are and you look perfectly lovely with your precious daughters. I’ll bet you can’t wait to be able to have them both home together with your other two.

    You certainly are doubly blessed.
