Introducing Tucker and Henry!


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!

OMG babies! I just discovered your site via Annie's Eats, and though I was very struck by your strawberry red velvet cupcakes, this of course stopped me in my tracks. What beautiful leetle bundles of joy. Congratulations! I look forward to seeing more great food and more of your adorable munchkins now that I know about your wonderful blog. :)
