Announcing the arrival of two brand new human beings!
Leonidas Jeffrey Mossoff (Leo), born August 20, 2011 at 2:42pm, 4 pounds 7 ounces:
Zoe Alleyne Mossoff, born August 20, 2011 at 3:00pm, 3 pounds 14 ounces:
These are the very first photos of them. I like them better than the ones where they're all cleaned up and bundled.
They are both in the NICU but doing great. They won't have any health issues - they just need to grow a bit more before they come home, which could be anytime between this weekend and another three weeks. I was hoping to cook them myself for a while longer, but I went into labor early Saturday morning and no matter how much I tried to hold them in, they were determined to come out. The whole birth experience was magical. Leo and Zoe are magical. I can hardly believe they are real. But they are. They're here. It took 27 months, 4 losses, and the magic of science, but we made these two babies. It was definitely worth it.
