They have arrived!

The c section went much better than last time around. Unfortunately the boys are both working hard to breath and in the NICU. They're on CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) which provides pressure but they're doing all the breathing on their own. On the way to my room from recovery they wheeled my bed by NICU and I was able to see them briefly. I haven't seen their full faces yet but I was shocked at how much they didn't look like Jonah. They have their own little looks. So, these are not the first pictures I was hoping to post but this is what we have. I hope I'm able to get in a wheelchair tonight and see them again.

Baby A is Elliott Michael. He was 4 lbs 15 oz and it looks like he has long, dark hair. He came out screaming and you can tell he has some attitude. He is doing a little bit better job breathing than his brother and was looking all around when we visited.

Baby B is Simon Patrick. He was 5 lbs 3 oz and has been on the quieter side. He is breathing pretty hard and grunting even on CPAP. He looks more similar to Jonah than Elliott.
