Welcome to the world Baby A and B! We are still anxiously awaiting the announcement of the names, but are happy to know that they are healthy and Mommy is doing well, too!
I talked to Shannon at about 6am and she sounded calm and well. She thought she still had a ways to wait.
I talked to Joe a short 3.5 hours later (maybe not short for Shannon!) and their family had grown to a family of 6! Shannon is a champion! Shannon's doctor arrived at 8:30 a.m. and her babies were born at 8:47 a.m. and 8:50 a.m.! Talk about some fast work! She did not need a C-section either. I knew if anyone could deliver the twins without a C-section (with one breech) it would be Shannon. She's a toughie!
Here are the stats:
Baby A: 19.5 inches - 8 pounds, 2 ounces
Baby B: 19 inches - 6 pounds, 9 ounces
Congratulations! We cannot wait to meet the little guys and introduce Jackson to his new friends!
