Welcome Zachary!

Please join us in welcoming to the world Zachary David MacDonald!

What everyone really wants to see (first pictures) are available at

Please continue to pray for us, as Zachary was admitted to the NICU this evening with respiratory distress, likely due to fluid in the lungs that was not cleared at birth. If so, this is not uncommon with C-Section deliveries and should clear up in a day or so with close monitoring. As a precaution they are also running panels for various infections and lung underdevelopment, however. In any case, we are told it shouldn't be a big deal, other than the fact that he isn't staying with us, but please pray for a speedy resolution and our mental state since this pregnancy has been a long road that never seems to end.

A picture to strike fear into the heart of any parent of twins! :)

Shot at night under less than ideal circumstances, so it may take a closer look to notice that there are TWO car seats on the other side of the infant carrier. Amazingly they all fit! Of course, Baby Mac may not have any ears left after whichever brother is in the middle yanks at them, and in our test drive the boys were already quibbling over who gets to sit in the middle. It's great fun to watch the boys climb up to (my) chest height to get into their car seats.
