This is Christina's husband writing. She wanted me to post this on her blog so her friends would know what happened. Her water broke around 6:00 last night and she went into labor right after. She wanted to try for a natural birth, but after a few hours opted for an epidural. A few hours later, we got the shock of our lives when she delivered Benjamin at 11:31. We'd been told she was having a girl, so of course, we were a bit surprised! We were joking around about asking for our money back when the doctor said in surprise, "Whoa, I think there's another one!" Katherine was born at 11:42.
TWINS! We have no idea how they missed seeing Benjamin at the ultrasound. Both are doing surprisingly well for being five and a half weeks early. Benjamin was 4 lbs 13 ounces and Katherine was a hefty 5 lbs 3 ounces. They are keeping a close eye on them in the NICU, but so far, they are breathing room air. The kids are all excited, but they won't let kids younger than 10 visit the NICU. I'll be bringing Lillian over later.
Christina has the camera and will be posting pictures when she gets home in a few days.
