Introducing Brayden Lee (6.0lbs, 20.5 in., born at 8:20am) and Benjamin Carl (5.9lbs, 20 in., 8:21am)
One Nov 2, Bradley and I drove to the hospital to have our scheduled C-section. The night before my scheduled section with Peanut, my water broke and she came into the world a little earlier than her scheduled time. So, I was a nervous wreck that we would repeat this on Monday night however none of that happened and we went in as planned. Everything went pretty smoothly upon our arrival and we met the boys at 8:20 and 8:21am.
Baby A/Brayden had Apgar scores of 8 and 9 and Baby B/Benjamin had scores for 6 and 8. Baby B was taken to the NICU because his breathing was faster than they were comfortable with however by the time he made it to the NICU his breathing was improving, so they monitored him for another 4 hours and he was returned to us and hasn't had any complications since.
I've been worried sick over M and how she will feel when she is no longer the center of it all. Although the first meeting wasn't fantastic, since we've been home M has been nothing but excited, interested, and just an amazing big sister. I highly suspect God has been playing a role in the ease of transition so thanks for all the prayers everyone!
Can you spot Peanut waiting to hold the baby?
Little Miss loves to hug, hold, and kiss her brothers.
We are now a family of 5! There are sleepless nights, the house looks like a tornado rolled through, and my body still aches from the c-section, but our life is amazingly perfect. M loves her Big Sister role, Bradley is doing everything he possibly can to keep me from doing too much, and just being there when anything is needed. We are blessed, so very blessed indeed. Thank you, again, to everyone for all the prayers and support.
Here's Bradley with Brayden and Benjamin...
and Bradley with Marissa? Notice a trend?
Yep, I truly did worry over nothing. God's plan is perfect even when we aren't entirely sure what he was thinking...
