Welcome Ned and Penny

Sorry for the holdup in passing on the news--the hospital's WiFi didn't play nice with the Mommy's notebook.

Fortunately, there were no such incompatibilities with the delivery. Edmund was manfully ripped from his mother's womb at 2:12 PM yesterday; 5 lbs., 5 oz. and 20 inches. Penelope demurely and daintily followed at 2:14; 5lbs. 11 oz. and 20 inches. Mom and kids are all doing great.

I have to get back to the hospital with a new notebook (so the Mommy can blog at you some more), so just one picture for the moment. That's Ned on the left, and Penny on the right.



Thanks to everyone for the calls/e-mails/comments!

How exciting and how beautiful they both are! And isn't Mommy, Esq. a total rock star? We couldn't be happier for all of you. Congratulations! Love, Dan and Rachael

AHHHH! Congratulations!!! They're beautiful - and look how awake they seem to be!

And you can totally tell which one is the boy and which is the girl...I can't put my finger on WHY, but before I even read the text, I knew who was who :)

Can't wait to meet 'em!

now that i've seen them in person i can confirm that they are perfect and beautiful and just amazing. mommy looks beautiful and daddy is such a champ, he jumps right in there. today i called him "the baby whisperer' because he was the only one who could get penny to calm down. m and d are going to be amazing parents.
