    Congratulations on becoming parents! and thank you so much for taking the time to let us know. It looks like I’m not the only one hitting refresh every few minutes. We love all four of you.

    Ok, I’m on a conference call and I’m not supposed to be playing with audio stuff at work… but I just couldn’t wait to hear the update so I listened by switching between the mute on my phone and my mute on the computer :) (And my boss is on the conference call, too.) So, I’m definitely going to have to listen to this again tonight… but WAHOO for the bits I did hear!

    All things considered you daughter is a real chunker ;-) Elizabeth was 6-12 19.5 inches and she was a full term singleton.

    I couldn’t hear everything regarding your son, but I’m optimistically praying.

    Can’t wait to hear the names :)

    I can’t listen to it either, but I gather from the string of comments above, the news sounds pretty good. Congrats Mike, Stacy and the wee Stavlunds! I’ll keep praying for you guys! Also, Mike–if you need someplace to crash, give me a call.

    Congratulations and thanksgivings! You probably don’t remember us, we stood next to you during the child dedication at the simple way reunion. We’ve been following your progress and praying for you. Have fun and remember — sleep when they sleep!

    To those that can’t listen — here is the summary —
    Stavlund Daugher: 6’12″ – 20 inches
    Stavlund Son: 3’10″ no length given.
    They both came out crying and have strong lung function. Their son was having his heart checked out as he left the message. But all is as well as it could be from the sound of it.

    Mike and Stacy — big hugs and continued prayers from MI.

  23. Amy says:

    I hope you are well on your way to enjoying the blessing God has given you. May God continue to bless your family on this new journey.

  24. Mojo says:

    Great news, Mike! I hope Stacy is recuperating well. I’ll be praying for you all.

  25. Lora says:
