They're here!

We are proud to announce that the Fab Four made their debut this morning in the following order:

Isaac Nehiel at 8:40am, 4 lb. 11 oz.
Lucia Celeste at 8:40am, 4 lb. 5 oz.
Jude Wesley at 8:41am, 4 lb. 15 oz.
Dahlia Solis at 8:41am, 3 lb. 9 oz.

Ted got to see the babies in the resuscitation room while they were putting me back together, and then we were able to go up and see them in the NICU after I got out of recovery. They are all on CPAP machines for the time being to help them breathe, but otherwise they are doing great (as am I). I'm pretty sure they're super-cute, but it's hard to tell under all of those tubes and wires!

Thanks so much for all of your prayers this morning, and please keep them coming, as the nurses say that it's not unusual for preemies to backslide a bit in the first couple of days. Also, please be aware that the hospital staff has advised us that visitors are not a good idea until we can be sure that everyone is stable. For now, I am trying to rest as much as possible, but I'll keep everyone posted on how we're doing and will upload pictures after I've had a chance to go through them.

What a wonderful Christmas this is turning out to be!

Congratualtions and may your recovery be swift and my the gang all not slide to far. When Carter James was born, he was 6lb 9 oz and slid to a little over 6 in the first days, but within two weeks he was up to 8 pounds.

They will do fine.

Maybe we can get up to see you early next week.

I already commented on FB, but had to come back when I realized how many pounds of baby you had in you--almost 18!?! Incredible! I had almost 9 and that felt pretty miserable. You haven't even whined like most of us wimps do!

My cousin Bob, Ted's dad, just told me yesterday about all this excitement, and you've been in my prayers ever since. It was so fun to read back through your blog, and the belly pictures are terrific. What a great job you've done, nurturing these kiddos along so well. Christmas blessings you are, every one of you. You've blessed our Christmas as well.

Merry Christmas....an congratulations from Australia!!

so pleased for you that they were all born at such mazing weights...I am only carrying two and we were almost the exact same dates, {mine are measuring in at 5 1/2 lb each}...BUT you are the winner by far!!!

Hope it all continues to go smoothy....

Susan :):)

Heather said...

Huzzah! Okay, so I get the inspiration for the boys' names, but where did the girls' come from (other than "Dahlia" being an obvious reference to your love of true crime)? Can't wait to see them!!

Terri said...

Barbara Manatee said...

Congratulations! Saw your blog on 4Tunate and wanted to send my well wishes along. What an awesome Christmas present! I am so impressed too - I had twins at 34 weeks...and 3 of your 4 were bigger than my pipsqueak son! You'd never know he was teeny tiny now! He went from 4 lbs at birth to tipping the height and weight scales at age 2!!

Congrats again and good luck! Hope those lil ones come home soon.
Merry Christmas!

Hey Lady! You made it! We are so thankful for you and the babies are doing so well. Sing to each of them every chance you get. They hear so much other noise this will sooth and comfort them.
Love you so much and want to help in anyway you may need me.
Give them all a kiss and hug for us.
