Happy Birthday, Quints!!!

Ok, pictures are coming soon, but we're contending with a dead battery...we wore that thing out today! The babies are all doing "better than average for their age and weight" according to the NICU doctor who checked them all out!

What an experience from start to finish! Casey is doing very well, resting, and anxious to see her babies - she only got to see a flash of them in the operating room before they were whisked away for further care. Unfortunately for mama, she did all the work and missed out on all of the fun... :(

Here are the weights:
Baby A - 2 pounds, 13 ounces, 16-1/4 inches
Baby B - 2 pounds, 2 ounces, 14 inches
Baby C - Jack William - 2 pounds, 11 ounces, 14-3/4 inches - that's right, as with the entire pregnancy, Jack was right in the middle in the birth order!
Baby D - 2 pounds, 3 ounces, 15 inches
Baby E - 2 pounds, 10 ounces, 15-1/4 inches

We won't know which baby gets which name until after Casey is able to go up to the NICU with me to figure it all out. Whew!! What a day! More to come later...

God Bless,
Ethan

Congratulations!!! I am so happy to hear they are all doing so well! I hope Casey is able to go see them soon---it is such a bummer that the one who does all the work is the last one to really see them!! We will keep praying for you. Tell Casey she is amazing!

Thank you God, all the babies are here and alive! I've been following you, linked from another quad/quint blog. I've prayed for you and celebrated when the news was good! Happy, Happy Day! We'll continue to pray that the babies thrive during their nicu stage and mom has peace as she regains her health. It's always slower than we want! Much love from rainy Seattle!
