THE BABIES ARE HERE!

dean_italiano and gsguitar's twins are oot and aboot!

They were born at 2:53 this afternoon.

Kaden Italiano came first, weighing 4 pounds, 2 ounces.

Thomas Italiano followed his brother, weighing 6 pounds, 7 ounces.

They're premature by a couple of weeks -- which isn't unusual for twins -- and are staying in the preemie ward even though don't need intensive care or oxygen machines. G says they look so healthy you wouldn't even know they were preemies, except that one is bigger than the other. (Which is why the doctors wanted to do it now. It seems Thomas was stealing some of Kaden's nutrients in utero. What a sneaky little hog!)

Kaden and Thomas will be staying at the hospital for at least another week to make sure everything's groovy. Marcy has to stay until Monday, and then she and G will be visiting the twins every day until the boys can come home.

YAY!
