I’m a DAD!

Calliope Ann Buckell and Thalia Lyn Buckell were born, just before 7AM this morning, 5 pounds 8 ounces and 5 pounds 6 respectively. Mom and daughters are hale and hearty and the doctor said it was an easy and textbook delivery.

edit: for those wondering, we’re back home, but the twins are in the special care unit still. They were having trouble keeping their body temperature up and had a touch of jaundice (oompah loompah babies) so they’re working through that. The pediatrician we talked to today is hoping tomorrow we can bring them home. While Monday we were still in a hospital room near special care, today was a bit long because we had to drive down to Lima and spend all day sitting around the room with them, which is a bit tiring (as can be seen with my scruffy ballcap “I’d like to take them home to a more comfortable chair” look I have rocking of late that Emily snapped a picture of…)

    (Now the fun begins. Welcome to sleep-deprivation central . . .)

  4. Squeeeeee! They are soooo cute! Calliope and Thalia, what lovely names. And Mom looks wonderful. I know no way I looked that good after even giving birth to one. Gratz to all!

  5. Congratulations! May you and your wife still find time to sleep. My son is 10 months and I still feel tired sometimes. Coffee helps though.
    Twins are a blessing. Very cool. Happy Easter and I wish you all good health.

  6. Congratulations! Today is my daughter’s 23rd birthday. May you and Emily have as many and more years of delight from your daughters.

  7. Congrats to all four of you!! Love their names! Everyone looks so happy and beautiful!
    My only bit of unsolicited advice for new parents is to take turns sleeping, but I’m not sure how well it’ll apply to twins! Good luck!

  8. Hooray! Congrats Daddy!
    I was just asking Burt last night if he remembered the due date… and here they are!!!!
    Give Emily our love and congratulations too!

  9. SO SO WONDERFUL. They are beautiful! Mom looks fabulous! Congratulations x a million and best wishes for, um…sleep. *g*

  10. Congratulations! I’m so happy for you and your wife. I have a four-month-old little girl, and they are loads of fun. I can’t express how this will change your life…for the better. Congratulations again. All of your girls are beautiful.

  11. Congratulations! SteelyKid looks forward to running around cons with them once they’re all old enough.
    Best wishes for a swift and easy recovery from delivery and an easy transition home. (I note that the _doctor_ said it was easy, not you or Emily . . . )

  12. What a coincidence; I was just checking websites this morning to see how all the Clarion 2006 people were doing.
    Wow! Mazeltof to the Buckell Family. I will read CRYSTAL RAIN again, to toast you.
