<p>I haven't been online much, but wanted to let everyone know that the boys are here!  I'll write up my whole birth story later, but for now, short version:  Ended up w/ full-blown pre-eclampsia and went in to be induced the night of 11/23.  Ended up having to have an emergency c-section the afternoon of the 24th, but everyone is healthy and doing well now.  Wyatt Robert (baby A) beat his brother out by 1 minute, weighing a whopping 5lbs, 12oz, and Elliott James (baby B) was 6lbs, 1oz.  Both were 19 inches long.  They're doing great now, although getting them on a schedule of sleeping at the same time and eating at the same time has been a challenge.  Wyatt had a pretty severe tongue tie and was having some issues nursing and hadn't gained any weight in the last week and a half, but we had that clipped this morning and so far he's doing much better at the breast and hasn't needed a bottle yet. I am so, so in love with them and even though its overwhelming having two, I never expected the joy that came along with it.  :)  Here's a link to some pics I have posted in FB...it should be public so everyone can see them; if not, feel free to send me a friend request and I'll add you.  Congratulations to all the new mamas so far, and I can't wait to see more December babies!</p>
