At 8:30 AM on July 24, 2003
AWON Board Member Kathy Le Comte Lupton
gave birth to Lydia Elaine Marie Lupton (4 pounds, 7 ounces);
and Claudia Elizabeth Mary Lupton (2 pounds, 9 ounces) --
AWON's newest Great Grandchildren!

One of the first family portraits was taken at 3:00 in the morning on 7/25/03.
John Lupton holds Claudia Elizabeth Mary Lupton and Kathy holds Lydia Elaine Marie Lupton
when the twins were just 19 hours old.

Update . . . on Saturday, August 2, 2003 . . .

Lydia and Claudia have been taken off their IVs, and are growing like weeds.
Lydia, the first born, and the larger of the two, is the fussy eater. She doesn't stay awake
during her feedings, and loves to spread out. Claudia eats and eats, is very expressive,
smiling, grinning, and yawning – and is so far the more active of the two.
If all goes well, they'll be home in a couple of weeks.

Congratulations to the four of you from everyone in AWON!!!
