Damn, we’re pooped

So, Zoe and Apollo arrived around 3pm today. After a long hard labor, delivery took only about 10 minutes. Zoe weighed in at 6 lb. 1 oz, and Apollo was 4 lb. 11 oz. Nancy delivered in the OR on an operating table, and about a dozen doctors and nurses were ready to jump right into a C-section in case Apollo had difficulty making it out. But, they both arrived the old fashioned way, and are now fast asleep in the nursery. The quick and easy delivery was due no doubt to the quick thinking and skill of our OB doc Lara Williams at Legacy Emanuel Hospital who made delivering twins look easy. Nancy was awesome and dad, well, he looks good in the scrubs, eh?

Feeding is the next challenge, and we’ll be doing that every 3 hours until Wednesday. We’re going to try and get some sleep before they bring the babies back again for feeding, so we’ll have more pics to post later on.

Thanks for everyone’s well wishes and prayers, we were very fortunate today.
