Elliott and Lillie were born this morning!!!

Elliott David Wyatt was born @ 9:21am weighing (unofficially) 4 lbs and his sister Lillie Beth followed @ 9:30 weighing (officially) 5 lbs. 11 oz. Susan's water broke @ 11:50 last night, we called the doctor and were shortly waiving down a cab to head to Mt. Sinai. The birth was absolutely amazing, Susan was awesome, and the delivery team (probably at least 10 in the room) was outstanding. When I have more time I'll try to paint you the picture.

Lillie and Elliott are both in the NICU. Elliott is stable and not on oxygen, but Lillie a little more urgently needs our prayers as she is on 25% oxygen. She either has TTM (look it up) or HMD (again look it up). Both are very treatable and deal with her breathing. I'll give more details when we are not so wiped out.

Susan is doing remarkable. If you saw what I saw this morning as the delivery team had to turn Lillie to get her head down, your own stomach would hurt. I'm about to take Sus up to NICU to see the babies really for the first time except immediately after the birth. She is going to try to feed Elliott, pray that have a good introduction to one another.

We love you all so much!

Congratulations you guys! We'll be praying for you all. The NICU experience is hard to deal with (Ella had breathing issues at first, too) - hope she doesn't have to be there for long.
