Noah has had some great smiles so we wanted to share that too!
Ava: "How you doin?"
I was born the day after Christmas so there were still Christmas decorations up at the hospital when I was born. My parents loved the giant stockings at the hospital so they brought one home and put me in it. Twenty-nine years later, I'm posting pictures of my babies in the very same stocking. Life sure is amazing!

Thanks to Nekesa for the "first Thanksgiving" bibs!
We had our first outing last week - Astor place, Kmart & our new favorite tacqueria. It was quite the adventure!
I've posted new pics to our flickr and will continue to post to this set for the rest of the month so make sure you check it out!
Forrest returned home this week and seems to be adjusting well. I'm sure it was a big shock for him to leave and come back to a completely rearranged apartment with two newborns. I tried to warn him but I don't think he really understood the whole pregnancy thing! They also had their first visitor, Uncle Daniel who is also Forrest's favorite dogsitter (I apologize to all other dogsitters reading this but it is true :)
We'll try to get a video of Ava up soon but for now, enjoy Noah hamming it up!

We got to the hospital around 8 am and by 10 am I was being rolled back for the c-section (baby boy was breech and baby girl was oblique so that was our only option). It was not a pleasant experience but everything went well. My mom & my sister were both in town to help me with being on bedrest so it was such a blessing to have them there for the twins arrival also.
Noah HyoSung Anderson Lee was born at 10:46 and Ava SunMi Nicole Lee was born at 10:47. Noah was 5 lbs 6 oz, 19 inches long and Ava was 5 lbs 2 oz, 18 3/4 long. They both got a 9 out of 10 on their Apgar score (overall health/reaction/color scores for newborns) which is amazing since they were so early and the hospital never gives out 10s! They got to hang out with us in the recovery room for a bit and then met us upstairs. We were in the hospital until Tuesday.
Here are a few pics & a video that the anesthesiologist was able to take on his I-phone and show me since I wasn't able to see the twins yet. There are many more pics on our flickr site :)
