The number of the beast(s)

At long last and after quite a few scary moments along the way, Nathan and Thomas Richardson - Waller arrived today at 9:50am and 9:47am respectively. Nathan was 3.7lbs, Thomas was 4.1lbs.

Mum is fine but knackered. Dad is knackered and a bit bewildered. Not much energy to write, so will leave you with a couple of pics.

On the left is Thomas being weighed barely minutes after being born. Unlike his brother, he cried as he came out - which made his Mum and Dad cry a little (we'd been told that they would probably be too sick). Later on, he needed a bit of help breathing but is doing well.

On the right is Nathan, looking at his Dad for the first time. Nathan struggled a bit when he was first born, but is now - if anything - doing better than his brother.

Mum is knackered and recovering from the C-Section. Both boys are in the neo-natal unit and doing a lot better than expected.

Two wonderful kids, two wonderful parents-as-of-now. Lovely how it all works out!

Congrats! I'm thinking wonderful healing thoughts towards VP's C-section scar! (PS: You're right, morphine is a wonderful thing!)
