Hey Everyone, just a quick update, these are some videos of Liam and Ben.

Liam was born 4 lbs 3 oz, 17.7 inches at 5:56 pm on 3-30-09

Ben was born at 5:55, he was 5 lbs 11 oz, and 18.3 inches long.

Their full names are William Kent and Lincoln Benjamin

Liam is doing really good and feeding already, and other than being pretty small and looking like a 90 year old man, he has no major issues.

Ben is having a little bit of trouble with his lungs, which is apparently very common and somewhat expected in this situation. The Doctors are trying to help his lungs develop, but they may end up sending him to the Children's Hospital. It seems that it is only a short term problem, however, so once he gets over the hump, there wont be any lasting complications.

Please pray that they can both come home soon, and that they would be super-healthy!

More to come soon.

Hey, guys...we are so excited to see the video of the newest members of the fam! Nice work! =) They are beautiful, and look just like you both...I guess they come from a good stock of genes. =) We will be praying that you guys keep up the energy to pour love on those babies while they spend a little time at the hospital. We've been in that spot before, so just know that we're praying for your stamina and your emotional well-being. I am sure those boys already feel the love of their mommy and daddy, and THAT in itself will make them healthier and stronger so they can come home soon! We love you guys. Give us a call if you want someone to talk to....
