They arrives safely and happy on April 24, 2007 @ 1116 and 1117 via C-section.
Happy and healthy, able to come home from hospital with Mama and Papa.
Falling in love every minute, times two, is an unbelievable experience.

Not one thing I knit fits them. Not one. Oh well, I will just have to knit for myself now. Haha.

We have more pictures up here and hope to just keep adding until they fit in their handmade knitties. Thanks to the folks out there that sent their thoughts and prayers our way...it resulted in our joyful additions.

Congratulations! They look absolutely adorable . . . makes me think of my girls when they were first born. Take it easy for the first few weeks; everything will be there for you to do after that. Congrats again!

They are so great! I feel so lucky to have met them! If you get a chance you should cross-post at the CAL - I know everyone will want to hear your news!

xox, J

They're gorgeous :) I've got tears in my eyes :) I was wondering if your silence meant they were a) either born or b) you'd gone into hospital for more rest... I'm happy to see it was the first one.
Gorgeous names too!!! With lots of 'yellability' hehehe.

Cheers Eva

I, too, was wondering if you lack of posts was due to the boy's arrival, or if the bed rest had finally driven you completely nutters, and you were talking to the walls (I was almost to that point).

They are absolutely beautiful! Congratulations to your family. It can't be said enough: rest, rest, rest. Do nothing but enjoy this special, fleeting time. Before you know it, they will be outgrowing all the goodies you knit for them, and you'll be wondering where your tiny babes went.

Congratulations! I found your blog on the Knitty Bloggy Baby Bumpers and I've been following it for a little while now. The beans are beautiful!

If you get a chance (and I don't expect you to, don't worry!) could you let me know about your c-section experience? I just got scheduled for the 17th of May and and not sure what to expect. Don't worry if there's no time, you've got (both) hands full right now! jeloca at sympatico dot ca

Congratulations! They are so cute! I'm glad they arrived safe and sound. I noticed you hadn't been posting lately and was eagerly awaiting some news.

OMG, they are absolutely, utterly, entirely BEAUTIFUL. I'm having major uterus spasms here, looking at your newborn babes. Congratulations, mama! Welcome to the world, Owen and Mason! And happy babymoon to you all!!
