We have been thoroughly enjoying the babymoon to the point that I have not shared much of anything about the girls’ birth. Asher Evelyn and Eowyn August had a wonderful entrance into the world. Here are the basics:
Born at 37 weeks
|Day of delivery|
Eowyn technically emerged first, but when Asher realized her sister was on the move she put her hands up like all the single ladies and they had to grab her too. They were born seconds apart.
Eowyn weighed 5 lbs, 5 oz and Asher weighed 5 lbs, 9.6 oz
Zero NICU time
The whole experience was amazing. We had great nurses and doctors, and the c-section went smoother than my first two. We came home on June 22nd with both girls having passed all their tests and breastfeeding like champs.
I know we were covered in prayer throughout this time, and God is good. We felt everyone’s prayers and the presence of God as every situation fell perfectly into place. As the respiratory therapist said in the OR when we realized how well the girls were doing, “Of course they’re fine; they are warrior princesses!” I think he recognized Eowyn’s name and was a Lord of the Rings fan, but he was right; they are warrior princesses, and we appreciate all the love and prayers sent their way.
