From oldest to youngest:
Pilot Jasper Reaux
born at 3:50 pm
4 lb. 15 oz.
Finn Journey Reaux
born at 3:57 pm
Relaxed. That is the best way I can describe their labor and birth. It just all felt so natural and, dare I say it, fun! For the almost 3 hours of laboring in the hospital room, we goofed off and laughed almost the entire time. I will see if I can upload a clip of the video my best friend recorded while I was dancing between contractions. I had Hanson playing on my iPhone, friends and family hanging out with me, and jokes going between me and the nurses. Just the way it should be. (Well... I would prefer to have been at home through it all, but felt better about being in the hospital once we saw meconium in Pilot's amniotic fluid.) Just for fun, here is a picture I posted to Twitter 3 hours before I had the boys:
I am completely kicking myself for not getting around to do a photo shoot of Pilot & Finn before they turned 2-weeks-old (and still haven't done it!). I have just had a lot going on, obviously. I'm letting myself off the hook. ;) I'm sure I will have plenty of pictures to post here as time goes on, so hang tight.
By the way, the kids (and the girls especially) are just about as in love with them as Jeromy and I are. I love the picture of Ella admiring them in my bed one morning.
And just because it cracks me up, here they were one morning stretching... together. How adorable is that?
Be back soon (but no promises, because... well... you know how I am). Ha!
