They're here!

This is Jenny, a friend of Kristi's - as a guest poster.

I am privileged, excited, and relieved to announce the arrival of Luciana and Nicholas!!

That's right - the twins have arrived! They made their way into the world today shortly after 3pm. Luci (or will it be Lucy?) is 4.9 lbs and her brother, Nicholas is 5.2 lbs.

The arrival of the twins followed a rough weekend of complications for Kristi that had her in the hospital over the weekend, home for Tuesday afternoon, and back at the hospital between last night and this morning. This morning the doctors decided it was time for the babies to come out - and so they did. Everyone is doing ok, but Kristi said she is still in a bit of pain. Hopefully pain meds will help out with that quickly. The babies are in the hospital's NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) - due to some difficulty with breathing on their own. Kristi sounded pretty tired the couple times I talked to her, but did say that they are all doing ok. I don't have many more details right now, but Kristi said she'll be online in the next couple days to share more details. I'll be seeing them tomorrow and I'll try to add pictures tomorrow night unless Kristi is able to get them here first.

Welcome Luciana and Nicholas! I can't wait to meet you!
Congratulations, Kristi, Rich, and big sister - Isabella!

    When I saw a new post pop up in Google Reader I had a sneaking suspicion there would be good news. Congratulations to Mum, Dad and newly-minted big sister Isabella!! What lovely names, and I cannot wait to see photos.

    I saw Karrie at a show last night and the first thing she did was show me a photo of one of the twins on her iPhone, without speaking a word. It was a great way to be told! Congratulations to you all and I hope your recovery is swift and as pain-free as possible.
