Welcome to the World

On July 25th Aiden John Funkhouser and Evan Robert Funkhouser were born at 3:45 and 3:47 in the afternoon at Seton Medical Center in Austin Texas. Janel was 25 weeks and 1 day on the day of birth.

Aiden weighed 1lb 12oz and was 31.5cm in length. Evan weighed 1lb 9 oz but was longer at 33cm. At 15 weeks early, the boys will spend the first several months of their lives in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit here at Seton Medical Center.

Janel and I will try our best to post updates on this blog as a means of keeping all of our extended family and friends up-to-date on the boys status.

David and Janel


  1. Hi my name is Kimberly Callis Sanchez I am Janels cousin. Steve and I just had a baby girl, I was only 24weeks. Taylor was 1lb 3oz and 11 inches, born October 23, 2008. Taylor stayed in the NIUC for 4 and half months. I just wanted to let you know. I know what you are going through right now. Hang in there, our thoughts and prays are with you two.

    Today Taylor is 9 months 14lbs, 7oz and 26in and a bundle of joy. She is just a happy baby.

    God bless you
    Much Love Steve and Kimberly Sanchez.
