Photos of My Family!


Jed taking self portraits while I am prepped for a cesarean.
I think he looks damn sexy...I could be biased as I choose to have babies with this man.)



Pictures of Hunter in the NICU:


Hunter in her incubator





Close up of Hunter's face





Hunter's Size: Hunter's head in relation to Jed's hand.
(Sorry about the glare, the photo was taken through the plastic of the incubator.)




Pictures of Elliott:


Elliott all wrapped up





Me and Elliott (i.e., me blissed out)





Home! Jed and Elliott snuggling in bed (i.e., Jed blissed out)





Our Family:

Mir, Jed, Elliott and Hunter!

Aw, sooooo precious!

You're making me want another wee one. If you'd like to trade for a toddler, please let me know. :)

THEY ARE SO GORGEOUS!!! So, they both home then, or just Elli?

For now just Elli is home. Hunter is still in the NICU but yesterday she was moved to an open crib, had her NG tube pulled (she pulled it out herself actually, but they realized she didn't need it anymore after that), and ate four bottles. She is maintaining her body temp on her own and hasn't lost any of her birth weight. (She was born at 3 lbs, 10 oz). The neonatologist is very honest and says that in the ICU things can change fast, so they won't give us an exact day she'll come home, but Tuesday has been hinted at. Until then we are spending 6 hours or so a day there with her, Elli comes with and spends time with her sister. They look very much alike. I think we'll have to get a DNA test done at some point to know if they are identical or not.

I'd take a toddler, but I'll keep these two for a very long time. I hope Belle is feeling better.

Thank you very much! We've decided to "start" the babymoon once Hunter comes home, until then it is long days at the hospital giving Hunter love, pumping every 2 hours to establish a milk supply enough for two babes, and a great deal of "where the hell is the (fill in the blank)?" that is attempting to dress a small baby for a car ride. It will be very nice to have them both home, not only so the twins can be together but so we can spend long slow days all snuggling in bed and hours nursing.

Thanks babe. These kids are cute...perhaps too cute. Oddly, it is like my features and Jed's features were taken and totally blended. They have my lower ear lobe, but they have Jed's elfish top of the ear.. but there is not one feature that clearly came from Jed or I.

Thank you Rhon! They are amazingly sweet and calm little babes. Thank you for the honest opinion of induction and all your guidance for all this time. I don't think I would ever choose c-section again, but given Hunter's size and that the IUGR stressed her out so much, it was the right choice.

They look tiny in person, but they are perfect tiny little babes that I love more than I thought possible.

Brodie my love, I would have called you immediately but 1) I went to the hospital thinking I was only having an amnio done - not babies and 2) I didn't have calling card on me and they didn't let folks make long distance calls otherwise.

You are the godfather of two amazing babes. I'll give you a call later today - I want to tell you all about them, but also want to hear about how your papa is doing, and how YOU are doing with everything!
