Welcome to Tarrant County, M & K!


(Dad jotting down their weights/lengths in the OR...who needs paper, right?!)

Baby A, Kinley Margaret
8:45p
3 lbs 13 oz
17 1/4"
room air



Baby B, Madelyn Clare
8:47p
4 lb 9.3 oz
17 3/4"
CPAP


The girls came into this world kicking and crying! Mom did GREAT during the delivery and was recovering like a champ! I'm so proud of Liz! and Chris was adorable!!! Just beaming from ear to ear...such a proud Papa!

Liz was able to hold Kinley for a second in the OR, and she glanced at Madelyn as they wheeled them away to the NICU. Both girls are stable and doing well. Madelyn needed a small amount of oxygen via nasal cannula. Liz has yet to visit the girls in the NICU, so I turned down the request to see them in person. I want Liz to be able to see her precious little miracles before I do (just doesn't seem right!)...so, I promise to have MANY more pictures tomorrow!

Thank you so much for the prayers! Chris and Liz appreciate you more than you know!
(Suz) for Liz
