I'm an Auntie!

My brother and his wife had twin boys yesterday, so now I'm an aunt! Jack was born at 2:31 p.m. CDT, weighed 5 lbs., 3 oz., and was 17 1/4 inches long. Sam was born at 2:32 p.m., weighed 3 lbs., 7 oz., and was 16 1/2 inches long. Their Apgar scores were 9.9, and 8.9, respectively; 8.9 is average for full-term babies, so their scores are "off the charts" for premature infants. For now, they're both in the NICU, but yesterday afternoon, they were both breathing without assistance, and had good color.

The first picture is of me and leetle Sam, the second is of my brother with Sam, and the second is of him with Jack. To see more photos, use this link to connect to the "Spencer Twins" set on my Flickr site, or click the box in the blue-shaded column at right.
