Welcome Turtles!

After 6-7 hours of labor, our little girl Turtles were born at our home in Providence on Friday.

7 lbs.
19" long
Born at 1:55 a.m.

6lbs. 12 oz.
18 and 1/4 inches long
Born at 1:59 a.m.

My husband is now a real ladies man with two more daughters in the mix! We are all delighted by the uncomplicated birth and Vivi managed to sleep through the entire labor and woke up just in time to see Eliya being born. She is doing wonderfully in her role as big sister.

Thank you to everyone for their warm wishes and encouragement throughout this entire pregnancy.

I will post more when I can. Now the real work begins!


  1. if anyone can handle twins, you can! very cute! i hope i get a chance to meet them soon!

  2. Wow, you're amazing! A home birth of twins, uncomplicated, within 7 hours! CONGRATULATIONS!!! TO ALL 5 OF YOU!!!

  3. What exquisite little girls, all three of them. How cool, that they're so big and healthy and stayed to term--what an accomplishment! And hey, nice hats!

  4. Hooray! Congratulations to all of you. Whichever Turtle is on the right in the first photo already looks just like Vivi to me.

    I'm so happy your pregnancy and the birth went to well. Enjoy getting to know Jude and Eliya.

    BTW, Maddie was 7lbs. even and Riley was 6lbs. 10oz., so our babes were almost exactly the same size!

    So happy for you.

  5. Congrats on your new girls! They look so big that it's hard to believe they BOTH were actually in your tummy just a few days ago! I'm so thrilled you had an awesome homebirth! Homebirths ROCK! =D
