We are parents!

Ryan and I welcomed two healthy babies into our family on December 7th, 2009. I was 35 weeks and 5 days pregnant and these babies were ready to meet the world!

Despite my doctor's attempts to keep them growing even longer, my labor was progressing that morning and I was re-admitted to St.Vincent Hospital. At that time we didn't know if we would be meeting our babies that day or beginning another hospital stay, but within the hour I was taken to surgery and by 12:21pm we had two beautiful babies!

Sophia Raechel was born at 12:19pm, weighing 5 pounds 13 ounces and was 19 inches long. Jace Emmett was born at 12:21pm, also weighing 5 pounds 13 ounces and was 19.5 inches long.

It was the craziest, most amazing day of my life. I plan to share more details of our birth story at some point, but for now I just wanted to get back to my blog and begin sharing our babies with all of you!

Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers as we made our journey to become a family of four. It is more than I ever could have imagined it would be.
