More Pictures

My friend and visiting teacher is a professional photographer. She came over the other morning to take some pictures of the twins. Of course instead of napping they decided to stay awake and pee on everything. However, as a consummate professional she did manage to snap some adorable pictures. If you're in the market for a photographer in the Westchester County area you should get in touch with Elisa Perry.

Happy Birthday and More Twins!

The Twins have been getting all of the attention lately, but this little trooper has been handling things great. He loves his new brothers a lot. After going through a relatively "normal" birth,* we think back to the difficult birth of Ciaran, which happened a couple of months early on this day two years ago. My tiny little Boodle is doing great now, as you can see from the picture below. Always happy and smiling, except when he's screaming for more cracker fish (goldfish crackers for those who don't speak Ciaranese). So Happy 2nd Birthday Ciaran, we'll try to carve out some time to celebrate!

*Actually, Dawnell was famous in the maternity ward for her "normal" birth, but I'll let her tell the story in more detail if she wants to do so, since she did for the first two.

Well, the twins are home. If only they could learn to sleep at the same time at night I think we'd be doing okay. Here are some more pics of the babies:

Here's old what's his face getting ready to go home. We'll call him Lachlan and change the post if Dawnell tells me I was wrong.

Here's that one dude. Again, we'll go with Aidric unless told otherwise.

While they were in the hospital the boys shared one of those nursery cribs. This was precious and adorable, but also made for some cramped quarters, as the picture below makes clear...

However, now they have the luxury of sharing their huge crib together, complete with homemade quilts as decoration (thanks Grandma)

Beckett also loves his new brothers and is always looking for ways to help. Here he is with both of them, which is convenient, since now I don't have to try to figure out which is which.

Meet the Twins

Say hello to Aidric Christopher and Lachlan Michael, who arrived in the early morning on Saturday, June 4th. In the pictures below, Baby Boy "A" is Aidric, born at 6:21 a.m., and Baby Boy "B" is Lachlan, born at 6:34 a.m. Both babies are healthy and a good size, especially for twins: Aidric is 6 lbs. 12oz. and Lachlan is 6 lbs. 11 oz.

Dawnell is tired but doing fine, talking on the phone to a friend as I speak (yea for in-room wi-fi!).

.(Edited to add the date of birth, good suggestion Breanna)
