The Vandermark twins have arrived!

Both boys arrived safely at St. Francis hospital in Shakopee on January 29, 2006.

Zach was first, at 8:06AM, and let everyone know that he was there... He weighed in at 4 lbs, 13oz. and his length was 17.5 inches. His "bigger" brother followed him two minutes later, at 8:08AM, weighing 5lbs., 6oz. and was 18 inches long.

Both boys and mom are doing great, just need some time to recover from the trauma. Hopefully mom can be released Wednesday and the boys sometime after that (could be a week or so).

We took pictures, but unfortunately had a problem retrieveing them off the digital camera. I may have walked by an x-ray machine or some other device that destroyed the data, but I managed to hack the XD filesystem and recover some of it.

Here are some more pictures.

Baby update - 32 weeks

I had another ultrasound this week, and the boys are doing well. Baby A is still breech, unfortunately, so I will likely have a c-section unless he flips by then. He has grown to about 3 lb 10 oz, and Baby B has grown to 4 lb 1 oz. I now go in every week for a checkup and non-stress test. Ideally, I'll make it to at least 36 weeks, so we're getting close! Grandpa Bob will be painting the nursery for us this weekend, and the furniture is in and ready to be assembled. Pictures from the ultrasound are in the Baby x 2 album.
