Congrats!!! Hoping for good good news on Adam soon and it's so great that Kate is doing well!


Wishing for a speedy recovery for Adam!!!

Glad to hear Kate is well.

Holy crap, Tertia!! I am beyond thrilled at your news! I am saying prayers for all of you, particularly Adam. I hope you are listening to Marko and feeling somewhat relieved.

I'm just so, so happy for you.

Oh, Tertia!

I am so happy for the four of you!

I'm sending my best 'Wellwishing Random Total Stranger From The Internet' thoughts to all of you.


Congratulations on your twins! I hope to hear news of a wonderful birth and such. Here's to a quick recovery for little Adam.

Many prayers and good vibes headed in the direction of your new family. Congratulations, my friend.


Hugs and prayers....

CONGRATS! Sending lots of prayers for the little ones and you.

Oh my gosh, I oversleep and miss the whole thing!! Congratulations! I hope Adam is back in your arms very soon, and in the meantime, kiss Kate a thousand times for us!

Congratulations T & M! Both of you and Adam & Kate are in my thoughts and prayers. Wishing for a speedy recovery and homecoming for all of you.

WOW, quite a lot happens when we're asleep in the US! Congrats on the birth, and sending good thoughts for good progress and quick recovery for Adam. Thinking of all of you!!

So sorry to hear Adam had to go on the vent. I hope the next update is full of good progress on the Adam front and nice stable news about Kate.

Thinking of you and the babies.

I've got my fingers crossed for your two children, hoping everything will turn out fine and that Adam will get better very soon.

Well, I know you said in your previous post to never tell stories about Aunt Tillie's friend who had the same thing and was fine, but, well, I can't help myself. My cousin's baby was born with premature lungs, and one of his lungs actually ended up collapsing. He had to be rushed by ambulance from the hospital she delivered in to a hospital with a higher-level NICU. It was so scary, but just a few days later, he was fine, and then home. That was 21 years ago.

I hope to hear good news about Adam soon. Sorry you are going through this worry now.

Welcome to Kate and Adam, who are NOT assholes.
Hope Adam gets better soon, so his mom can start worrying about other things.
Congratulations and best wishes to the four of you : )

Prayers for Adam, prayers for you. Happy Kate is a-okay. Incessantly thinking of all of you...

Delurking to congratulate you and Marko! Sending you best wishes for Adam's speedy recovery. Glad Kate is well.

This is my first comment here, though I've been visiting for months. I got chills when I pulled up your site this morning and saw your updates. Congratulations to you and hubby and your sweet babies!

Sending thoughts and prayers long distance from Texas....

God bless,

Tertia, I know this is hard but he will be fine. Most babies only stay on vents a few days and move back to CPAP. My babies lungs were incredibly immature and have now gone weeks without even oxygen. It will get better soon. You did incredible keeping him till 36 weeks.


Congrats and prayers. I cannot even imagine the emotional whirlwind. You are all awesome.

Tertia...sending you and Marko congrats and praying that Adam will be better soon. Praying that Kate will remain healthy and you all will be home soon.

Many congratulations to you & Marko, and good wishes for Adam & Kate. Extra special good thoughts for Adam to strengthen up and join Kate in the land of "just fine" really soon. Hope you are having a blast getting to know your two new kiddos.

delurking to say CONGRATULATIONS! Best wishes for you and your family!

my prayers are with you and your *family*. isn't that exciting? you are a family now!

Wow, I knew I shouldn't have gone to bed last night!

Congratulations, am praying for Adam and Kate.
Babies in January

Good jeebus! I didn't check your blog last night...and look what happens!!!!

Congratulations on your two new beauties.

Holy crap, Tertia! Holy crap! Turn my back for one second and you have the babies! I'm so glad all is well, Adam sounds like a real trooper. Yay for your HBIJ!

Thank goodness for text messesging! I'll keep all of you in my thoughts today.

Welcome to the world precious Kate and Adam! People all around the world are praying for you and your babies Tertia.

Welcome to the world Kate and Adam! Happy Birthday.

Hope Adam is doing fine real soon

Congratulations! My prayers are with all four of you. HBIJ!

Sherry, Sexy Mama, Debe, I'm with you: apparently we can't leave T. alone for two minutes! (^_^)

Congratulations Mommy and Daddy and Happy Birthday to Adam and Kate! Hugs and Godspeed good health to all of you!

I am sure they are both gorgeous and divine! Take care and update when you can. You have the whole interent thinking of you I bet!

happy birthday to adam and kate. And Tertia, you're gorgeous and divine (so are Kate and Adam). Or do we have to come up with another moniker for boys. OK, a challenge. For the men we love, what's the equivalent of "gorgeous & divine."?


Congratulations! I'm sure that Adam will be well soon and you and your babies will be headed home. What wonderful news to wake up to!

Wow, I don't check for a minute and wam you have the babies! I am devoted lurker, never posted before but read you everyday and have been silently cheering you on. I hope Adam recovers quickly and that kate continues to do well. Like you would say: v.v. happy for you!

I'll be praying for you.

Thanks for letting us know and I'll be thinking of you and your family.

all my prayers and thoughts for a speedy recovery for Adam and you (you just had surgery too sweetie!) and I can not wait to see pictures of the lovelies!

Look what happens when I close my eyes!! New babies!!!

Congratulations and thinking of you, M, A & K. Hang in there...

OK if we're scared along with you? Although if the Spouse of Few Words is offering reassurances, I think I'll go with scared-but-hopeful.

Oh my GOD!!!! Congratulations! Oh, oh, oh two babies hoooooorrraaaay!!!!!

It is my birthday today too, and I am super proud to share it with darling Adam and Kate.

Oh my GOD!!!! Congratulations! Oh, oh, oh two babies hoooooorrraaaay!!!!!

It is my birthday today too, and I am super proud to share it with darling Adam and Kate.

Congratulations on your two little ones! Now Adam, listen to me and grow and work on those lungs. You're going to need them to cry at all hours and wake your sister who has been sitting on top of you all this time.

All my love and happiness to you and your family!

OMG OMG OMG! Mommy!!! I'm stoked!

So glad to hear Kate is well. A speedy recovery to Adam and divine you. Congratulations to all 4 of you!

I saw your first note about going to L&D as I got ready to go to sleep last night and was so excited. Needless to say, I checked your website first thing this morning. Hurrah!

Congratulations to all, and welcome Adam and Kate!

Congrats! I am praying Adam makes a quick recovery and that you are all home together soon.

Hang in there, honey. We're all praying for him.

Thinking of Adam, come on little buddy.

I thought I'd say to myself, "What? She's still pregnant?!?" when I visited your blog again, but lo and behold, you have disgorged a gorgeous pair of babies (looking forward to photos, with or without vent). Congratulations to you and Marko!

It's delightful that Kate is doing so well. Adam just wanted to take Charlie's spot in a NICU now that Julie and Paul have taken him home. Soon (relatively speaking), Adam's lungs will be stronger and you'll have both gorgeous and divine (unisex terms--see also Brad Pitt and Buddha) babies at home with you. Hang in there during the v, v stressful NICU time--emotionally, it must be especially tough for you given Ben. We're all thinking of you and wishing your new son didn't have to spend a single day in the NICU. We will join you in being nervous about your babies (especially Adam) until, say, kindergarten.

I'm sending good thoughts and prayers your way for your little ones, particularly Adam.

Praying for Adam to make a QUICK recovery!
I know he is in good hands......

I'm sending good thoughts and prayers your way for your little ones, particularly Adam.

Maybe this is Adam's way of beginning the war for attention from Mommy and Daddy?

On a serious note, though, best wishes and prayers for a speedy recovery for Adam and also for you and for Kate as she tries to figure out this strange new world.

Hey aren't you 36 weeks today? You went full term! And I think twins are full term at 34 weeks. You held on til January- Yeah! Yeah!

Hey aren't you 36 weeks today? You went full term! And I think twins are full term at 34 weeks. You held on til January- Yeah! Yeah!

OMG OMG OMG! This is what I get for checking in late. Congratulations Tertia! Thrilling, wonderful news. Kate and Adam are here! Sorry you're having to worry about little Adam, and hope things resolve with him v soon.

OMG!!! (I yelled that out loud in my empty bedroom). Let a girl go offline for less than 24 hours and look what happens.


Thrilled to hear your news. Very glad that all's OK w/ Kate. Sorry little Adam is causing you some worry, wishing all 4 of you home, happy, and healthy soon. You've been on quite a journey; hang tough for the last mile. We're all rooting for you hard as we can.

I'm so excited for you - you made it!!!! Congratulations. I've watched you over the years in TLOL and its breakoffs and I am so happy that you have been blessed with term twins.

Praying for Adam as I write.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Big hugs to Adam and Kate!!!

Congratulations!! 36 weeks - how wonderful!

Lots of prayers and good thoughts for Adam's speedy recovery.

Can't wait for pictures!!

Mazel Tov! So happy for you. Tell Adam to behave and get off the vent! BIG HUGS to you! I know it must be scary to be back in the NICU and remember we are all here for you and your babes!! (and Marko).

So happy to hear they are in the world. Hoping adam's issues start clearing quickly. Congratulations to all four of you!

I read your blog every day and wanted you to know that I'm both excited and anxious for you... Congratulations!! And my prayers for Adam, I just know he'll be fine. Wishing you a short NICU stay and a speedy trip home with both babies in your arms!

YAY!!! You have BABIES to hold!!! Great news about Kate. I am hoping that Adam catches up with his sister very soon. Listen to Marko.

I am so very happy for you!!!

Wow! Thoughts are with Tertia and Marko and Adam and Kate!

Great, I'm crying again!

OMG! The babies have arrived! I am so happy for you & Marko. Lots of good wishes to you all, and hope Adam will be all better soon.

Wow that happened fast! Millions of congratulations to you all; wishing for a very speedy recovery for Adam and that all three of you are back home as soon as possible. You did so well Tertia :)

OMG! Congratulations Tertia! I sleep in one morning, and the babies are born!

I hope and pray that Adam improves quickly and is able to come home asap. xoxox


I'm so sorry that Adam has to be on a vent, that can be so scary. John and Emma were on vents for over 2 months each so I know the worry you feel. Hopefully Adam's settings will be short term only, my daughter Anna went back and forth from cpap to a vent for a week or two and then to just cpap and then oxygen.

Thank you for the updates and again, congratulations on the birth of your two children!!


I should have never gone to sleep last night or to the grocery store this morning. I missed it.

Am so happy for you. You did it. You did it well. Congratulations Mom! (or is is Mum!)...and to you as well Dad!

Congratulations Tertia & Marko! I've been following your blog closely and I'm thrilled for you. My love & prayers are with you today.

I'm sorry that Adam has to be on a vent... The tear scares me a little... Will be praying.

CONGRATULATIONS! On the birth of your wonderful babies! I can't wait to see pictures! I hope you are recovering from the c-section quickly, and are feeling well.

Hugs, Happy tears, and prayers,

Congratulations on the birth of Adam & Kate!!

MAZEL TOV! Congratulations to you & Marko, and welcome Adam and Kate! I hope Adam's stay in the NICU is short and that you have both your babies in arms as soon as possible.

Congratulations Tertia. I know there is still some worry now. I'm hoping for Adam's speedy release from NICU.

Best wishes!

CONGRATULATIONS!! Sending healing vibes to Adam all the way from Australia.

Oh my God! I leave the blogs for 12 hours and you go and give birth. Congratulations!! I am so, so happy for you and will be praying for a quick recovery for Adam. What a wonderful day! Welcome to the world Adam and Kate..

Congratulations and lots of positive thoughts for little Adam!

Tertia, you did an incredible, awe inspiring job keeping yourself pregnant until 36 weeks.

I know you are scared about Adam, but listen to Marko, ok?

Hoping for a speedy recovery for all of you.


Congrats! I'm so happy for you.

I'll keep Adam (and all of you) in my prayers/hopes/thoughts today.

You made it to 36 weeks! What a trouper!

Congratulations! And I hope everyone keeps doing well... you included, too.

Info on Tertia's shower can be found here:


Crossing everything, hoping and praying for both babies and Momma!

Does anyone know what they do for tears?

OMG, they're here! I am so happy for you. Boys! That's all I'm saying. I am praying for all...

Congrats! Thinking healing baby thoughts in Minnesota!

Congrats on the birth of your beautiful babies!

Glad to hear Kate is doing well and sending many prayers to you for a speedy recovery for Adam.


Hi Tertia,

I'm glad to read that Kate is doing fine. Lots of well-wishes, thoughts & prayers to little Adam. Hoping you get good comforting news very very soon.


Congratulations on the birth of you babies! I am praying for Adam, I was glad to see how big they were and glad Kate is fine. Before you know it you'll all be home, knee deep in diapers and laundry! :)

Looks like Kate decided to show Adam who's boss from the start! But you sat on him a little too long, love.

Oh, Tertia! In tears of joy for you and Marko. Your wonderful little boy will be healthy soon and then you'll have two full arms and then some.

Adam: there are people around the world sending you prayers and good thoughts and positive energy (depending on their beliefs). You just take those and let them help you, little Mister. And listen to your Mum -- she's gorgeous and divine and knows best!

Kate: be a good girl and don't give your Mummy and Daddy any scares. Preferrably ever, but I'll settle for until you're a teen-ager. You're so welcomed to the world, little one!

Thank you for letting us be a part of your life. I'm honored and sniffling in joy.

Tertia, I don't know if I've ever commented here before, but I have been following your story with admiration and hope and crossed everythings. MAZEL TOV to you and Marko and much, much, much luck for the next stage. Thinking strong thoughts for Adam, and Kate too, and just so happy for all of you.

Congrats congrats congrats, and prayers will still be headed your way. Sorry Adam is in NICU, and I'll be praying for a quick recovery!

Oooh, Adam be a good boy for Mum. Lots and lots of the good stuff coming from me, prayers, hopes, thoughts, chicken bone shakes.. Very glad Kate is well.

Congratulations Tertia and Marko. I hope everyone gets to go home safe and sound very soon.

I can't remember if I'm allowed to squee here or not, but surely Tertia will permit it just this once: EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Many many many congratulations on the brilliantly successful end of your (quite literal) confinement! Adam will no doubt figure out the breathing thing forthwith - right now is much too busy solving differential equations, designing summer Prada line, and composing first sonata in D major to be bothered with such trivia. Kate, being just a hair smarter for now, can manage her respiratory cycle while designing new space station, planning solution to world hunger and writing first screenplay.

Congratulations on fabulous gorgeous divine newborns, and on almost-imminent end of pelvic rest. You have done marvelously, Tertia and Marko, and now you get to rest. Oh wait, no, that's not right. Let's see - now you get to have the rollercoaster ride of parenthood for the rest of your lives, that's it. Heh! You both will manage this elegantly, we of the Interwebs are sure. Superbly well done, all, and a thousand more congratulations!

Stay strong little Kate. You are doing so well and your mommy and daddy don't need any more scares.

And, Adam, wishing you a quick recovery. You are a strong litle guy and I wish you all the best.

Tertia and Marko...Congrats to the both of you. I hope you find all the joy in the world with your two little babes.

Happy Birthday, Kate and Adam!

Congratulations, Tertia and Marko!

Oh, Tertia! Sending much love to you four!


Praying for a speedy recovery for Adam. Had a similar situation with our 35 weeker, and learned later that the tear in his lung was most likely from when they "bagged" him too aggressively after he was born. Overinflated his lungs, I guess. =( He recovered very quickly and the lung repaired itself on its own.

SO glad to hear that Kate is doing well. What a sweet girl! Can't wait to see that beautiful face you described in your last u/s in a "real" picture!

Please try to rest, and take it easy, if you can. I realize that may not be possible, though ... you've got two babies on your hands now! =)

Blessings to you and your family ...
