Why I’ve Been on Hiatus

If you’re wondering what’s become of me lately (OK, humor me that you actually noticed!), it’s because of these two little darlin’s – Lillian Emma and Blair Isabelle – who were born on April 1 at 9:02 and 9:07 p.m., respectively. They came into our lives following a difficult pregnancy and labor for Dana, who declined pain medication until her 17th hour of hard labor. All came out well, though. The twins are beautiful and healthy. At five pounds each, they could stand to put on a little weight, but with my genetic code, that shouldn’t be a problem.

And yes, the hospital really did put masking tape labels on their little knit caps to tell them apart.

Here’s an assortment of images from the night of their birth and the couple of days thereafter.
