John! How wonderful!! We want pictures when you come down off Cloud 9.
I've heard LT is in for a baby boom. This must be the first boomlets.
I just saw the news on Twitter! I am so happy for them all! Apparently they got a bit of a surprise as the MDs had predicted a boy and girl! :o)
Oh, joy joy joy! So glad everything came off. Congratulations!
Friends of ours have four boys and no girls. They had the best water-balloon-fight birthday party EVER! :)
Oh, they're up! John's Flickr page is public, and connected to his profile, so I don't think he'll mind me posting a link to it. Warning to the squeamish: Surgery shots, but much less than he threatened, "The first Chat-Roulette caesarian."
They look to be healthy husky boys, especially for twins. Blondie Will especially looks like he might be a good rugby player.

With four young boys in the house, everyone is going to be a rugby player.
Thanks everyone for the best wishes! Here are some photos (for those of you who don't want to accidentally stumble onto caesarean pics!)
Those link to bigger pics. They're still being kept in cribs in the special care nursery, but they're coming out for feeds. They seem to be doing very well though, and we're hoping we'll have staying them in the room with us in the morning. (I'm staying with Lou in the hospital tonight, but I'll be taking our older boys back home with me tomorrow.)
Tassie is definitely an AFL state, but we're not really an AFL family. Hopefully the boys will take up soccer instead. My old cricket team has now produced enough offspring for us to field a much younger team, too ;)
Gorgeous, gorgeous. Hope everything is going well.
Fingers, toes, arms and legs all crossed that LT doesn't have any emergencies over the next few days either!
Re sports: One more (or you join in) and you've got enough for a polo team.
CONGRATULATIONS!! They're *gorgeous*! So peaceful - long may that last ;)
Congratulations, Felius. Hope everything continues to go really well.
They look great!!
They're a good weight for twins, too (I should know, I have a pair myself).
How sweet! They are handsome fellows aren't they!! Congrats to you and your family and I'm glad that all is well.
C-sections produce such lovely babies. Their heads are so pretty and round! :o)
More best wishes on the birth of your beautiful baby boys!! I wish you and your wife much joy in the years ahead with your wonderful soccer or cricket "team".
Congratulations! Nothing like new babies at home to increase the fun!
Best wishes to all! May your household always be a busy, happy place!
Um, are there enough differences for you to tell them apart when they aren't wearing different colors? Birthmarks or something? I've had twin friends who could fool just about everyone but their own parents. Sort of like the Weasley twins!
> 45: Just rubber stamping them "W" and "M" - and you only need one stamp - should help for now ;-)
Congrats on two beautiful boys. I have two-year old twin boys (fraternal) and let me tell you, there is NEVER a dull moment!
The pictures say that William came out first.... because they thought he would be Willow!!
Congratulations! They are adorable. Looking forward to hearing about all the "double trouble" they get into as they grow!
Loads of congratulations felius and family!
Personally... they look like they could kick quite well, and take a mark already! Not that I am biased towards AFL...at all. :)
They are very cute!
Thanks again everyone for all the best wishes! We were able to bring the babies home on Saturday, and as I type this we're about to enter our fourth night with them at home. Things are going pretty smoothly so far - the first and third nights they slept 3-4 hours uninterrupted between feeds, while the second night had me up roughly once an hour to settle Max. Thankfully he was settling easily enough.
Here's what they looked like as we put them to bed on their first night at home:
>50 William was first (as skittles pointed out), but only by a minute. I'll fight any attempt to refer to him as the "older" twin ;)
>45 We're all but certain that they're not identical. We had never anticipated the possibility (given that we were expecting a girl), and they had separate placentas, amniotic sacs, etc - making it a pretty small chance. Besides, if they *are* identical then they're not doing a very good job of it - they have different coloured hair!
>34 I'm always surprised by the words that are new to people in other places around the world. Every now and then I'll say something to Tim, or he'll use some phrase, only to find that the other person hasn't ever heard it before.
>32,33 No, surely they're doing the dance from Thriller! ;)
Congratulations. They are adorable.
With Dad playing goalie, you could be a hockey team. :D
Whatever they do, at least we know they will Love Books!
Do be sure to give breaks to the wife from all that testosterone in house. My daughter, mother of 4 boys as well, goes and gets her nails done and other girly things to help.
May they figure out this sleep thing, so you can get a reasonable amount of it too.
