Babies are here! Longer than usual labor for me (5.5hr ) They're trying to nurse.

Dayton and Erin are pleased to announce the birth of their twin girls! The babies were born July 18th, 2007 at home in Bangkok, Thailand.

Miriam Joy
meaning “tears of joy”
10:33am
6 lb 14 oz

Shira Faith
meaning “song of faith”
10:41 am
6 lb 8 oz

Erin and the babies are doing very well. Grace and Isaiah got to watch their sisters be born and are so excited. Dayton has realized there aren’t enough arms to hold all four children!

Praise God for our many blessings!

Congratulations!! A home birth with twins, and uc to boot, that really is impressive! I'm glad to hear they are doing well. That's a really good size for twins. That's how much I weighed at birth (6 lb 14 oz)!
