Hello from Lisa Miller

Hi everyone,

I just thought I'd say hello since I've been out of the loop with the MFA program - and everything else - for the last few months. The twins (Sydney's on the left, Haylie's on the right) arrived six weeks early on Feb. 7th, and we were fortunate that despite their sizes (Sydney was 3 pounds, 9 ounces and Haylie was 4 pounds, 3 ounces) they were healthy and just needed time to grow. After three weeks in the NICU, we brought them home and they're doing great. Now both are just over 20 inches long and about 8 pounds. Barry and I are thrilled as we navigate our way through sleepless nights and the crazy fog that is new parenthood!

I hope you're all having a productive and enjoyable semester and I look forward to seeing you all at the next residency, and catching up with some of you between now and then.

Best wishes,
Lisa Miller

Please turn down the "Cute Contrast" on your children... it doesn't look right. Congrats... be well. RON

Adorable. Just adorable! And is that a little smile on Sydney's face? Seriously, I can't stand the cuteness!

What a beautiful pair. They look so intensely alert. Hope they at least occasionally rest at the same time. See you in August.

I know I'm late I went temporarily insane after completing my thesis.

I am so happy for you and Barry. They are perfect.

Take care.
