Monday, April 4th

Well, let's just say that my little guys are already showing me who's the boss. At 24 weeks gestation they decided they were ready for the world...whether or not the world was ready for them. Alexander Christian and Spencer Andrew were born on Thursday, March 31st, at 12:55 and 12:56 PM. Alex weighed in at 670 grams (1 lb 7.5 oz) and was 12 1/4 inches long at birth, while Spence beat his brother out by half an ounce, measuring 680 grams (1 lb 8 oz), 12 1/2 inches long.

The boys were delivered via Cesarean at AMC. They are in the hands of the very capable staff of the Neonatal ICU and are doing well for their gestational age. I was released from the hospital today and am staying close by at the Ronald McDonald House. We're taking things day by day, knowing that we have a long road ahead of us, but having faith that the boys are going to grow healthy and strong. We're fortunate to have a wonderful network of supportive family and friends who are sending lots of light and positive energy.

Spencer and Alex are incredibly beautiful. I can't believe how much in love I am with them already. I cherish your thoughts and prayers for us.
