    After a tough 55 hr induced labour, at about 3pm AST on Thursday my wife delivered our identical twin daughters. They are a whopping 4 lbs and 6 oz, and 5 lbs, and gorgeous. Little Robin and Piper are about a 4 weeks premature so will have to stay in the NICU for a little while until they are ready to come home, and we're thankful they have such great care 24/7. It's early, but thankfully it appears as though they have mom's lips, eyes, and nose.

    Mom's doing well. I don't recommend 55 hr labours for anyone. I would have tapped out early on. She's a champ. I will post a pic once all the wires and tubes come off, hopefully soon.

    I wish everyone could feel as happy as I do now.

    Congratulations Kex!!!
    More to the point congratulations Mrs. Kex!!!!
    55 hrs of labor is brutal and I hope she came through it okay.
    I am sure we can expect to see several pics of the new arrivals.

    Congratulations Kex and I am glad your wife is doing well. Yes we would like to see pictures ASAP. Have you begun to think of ways to tell them apart? I hope Robin and Piper are home soon.

    Congrats Kex...and Godspeed to Mrs. Kex for quick recovery...

    ...have you contacted Jennifer Botterill and Hayley Wickenheiser to let 'em know to reserve a spot for the Kexette twins in 2028? Go Canuckian wimmins, Go!

    Great names btw...

    Congrats Kex and Mrs. Kex! What a trooper your wife is. I wouldn't even want to do something that I like for 55 hours! I just can't imagine a 55 hour labour. Poor thing, I hope she's recovering well.

    Can't wait to see pictures of the Kexettes!

    Wow! How did I miss this thread?

    Congrats Kex. I can't wait to see pics of the Kexettes.

    Robin and Piper are lucky girls to be born into such a loving home. Nice names by the way.

    Congratulations again!
    As you have heard a million times by now they grow up fast so treasure every moment with them even when there are days that try your patience.

    It seems like yesterday my kids were that size and now I am getting ready to pay for two college tuitions.....
