add another, and now there are FIVE!!!

Last night, Wednesday, March 23, 2011, at 8:43 p.m. our family welcomed another member of the Erik and Elizabeth Lewis family.  We have another grandson!  He is healthy and beautiful.  He weighed 9 pounds 3 ounces and is 22 inches long.  As of this writing, a name had not yet been given, but it shouldn't be long now.

...and babies make FOUR (grandchildren, that is)

The Plautz family is incredibly pleased to introduce the two newest members of the family.  Max and Maggie Plautz were born just after 3:00 a.m. on Sunday, March 20th, 2011.  Mary had been in the hospital since early Wednesday morning as the little twins were trying very much to make an early arrival. Fortunately, they decided to stay inside for a few more days to help their little tiny bodies grow a few days stronger.  They made it to exactly 33 weeks and are doing very well.  They are both breathing on their own! Words cannot express how incredibly happy we are for Christian and Mary and for the safe arrival of their two new beautiful babies.

First born was Maggie, she weighed 3 pounds and 12 ounces.

A few minutes later Max was born, he weighed 4 pounds 2 ounces.

 Here is a photo of Maggie in her isolet; she is approximately 17 hours old.  She was so alert and soooo cute.

Here is a photo of Max in his isolet.  You can see how small he is as compared to Chris' (Grandma Cunningham) hand.  So adorable.  He grabbed a hold and held tight on to Grandpa Plautz' finger. They both have really blonde hair.



Here are two short videos.  The first is Maggie, the second, Max.

So, now Doug and I have four grandchildren, with one more little grandson coming within the next few days.  Elizabeth is due tomorrow (or Wednesday, depending on the calculator)  We will keep you posted once her little baby arrives.

Our family is truly blessed.  Thanks be to heaven.
