Grueling

We just got back from the hospital with two of the most beautiful girls in the whole world. Everyone is healthy. Mom and girls are all asleep.

We went in Monday morning. 26 hours of hard labor. Alisa was born on June 3 at 4:48 PM, 19.0 inches long and 6 lbs 8.8 oz. (2970 grams.) Leia was born on June 3 at 4:55 PM, 19.5 inches long and 6 lbs 8.0 oz. (2800 grams.) I've slept on average of 1 our a day since Monday. Updates with pictures will be coming later after a short nap plus another round of diapers and feeding and burping.

Cheers!

Update: Here's a collection of photos for sharing. --e

And shouldn't it be Baby A and Baby L?

Congratulations! They're adorable! It doesn't look like it will be difficult to tell them apart. That's always helpful with twins. :)
