It's with so much love and excitement that we introduce the newest members of our family: Tucker Joe and Henry Pope! They were born on Wednesday, Jan 9.
After a nearly textbook labor and delivery, Tucker was born at 3:27 pm. He weighed 6 lbs 13 oz, and is 19.5 inches long.
Eighteen minutes later, Henry Pope was born, weighing 6 lbs 3 oz. He is also 19.5 inches long.
Both babies were initially very healthy, but after a few hours, Henry was having a little trouble breathing, and was sent to NICU. He improved very quickly and we were so fortunate that he only required a brief stay. In less than 24 hours, he rejoined Tucker in our room.
We are all home now, and slowly but surely adjusting to being a family of SIX!! Caroline absolutely adores the babies, and pretty much wants to hold, cuddle, and kiss them 24/7. Smith alternates between being completely oblivious to the babies and thinking they are totally hilarious - he just points and laughs.
Thanks so much for all the support, well-wishes, and advice over the past few months. It still seems pretty surreal that have twins!
