The boys have a little sister

Well the boys now have a little sister, bigger sister actually. Born today at 35ish weeks weighing in at 2600 grams. No oxygen required and she was feeding within hours. She was squeaking when I went back to visit her today. She is beautiful and will surely win over many hearts as time goes by. The boys are doing well and should be out of hospital and with us in a 2 days. Alice will be out of hospital in a 2 or so days, when they are happy with our ability to care for them. How hard can it be? I've never changed a nappy in my life. That will all very soon change.

Both surrogate mothers are recovering nicely from their C sections. We saw one of the mothers on her way to the operating room. Brad didn't recognise her. I turned to him and said, "Well what did you expect the poor woman to look like after going through 12 hours of contractions?"

We arrived to find our hotel wasn't booked, my bad. . The people at the Legend Inn were really nice as they put us up as walk in customers on our first night in Delhi. The next day we moved to the Velvet Apple. Nice spacious room. Sort of worked out well as Alice is next door however the boys are at Delhi New Born centre, 1 hour and 20 mins away with traffic. Luckily we will only have a few more days to make the trip to see the boys. We finally got to meet Andy, his sister and their two new born babies. What little darlings they are.

The games appear to have worked wonders for Delhi. The city has changed so much since October 2009. The metro is amazing and very much needed. It is hard to comprehend how this city can function with so many cars and people, but it just does.
More updates as they unfold.
