OT: I am a Father (x2)

Thanksgiving 2008

It has taken me a while to write this post – because I never anticipated the amount of work it would require to care for twins during their first week of life.

Last Monday (11/24) was an amazing day. I woke up with a two-person family (just my wife Shannon and I) and I laid down to sleep (or not) with two new additions: Kaden and Keegan. How much can change in a day. Those of you that know me, realize that I have been very excited about this (I usually couldn’t help talking about it with anyone that would listen). This is truly a very welcome change in my life.

It is always good to have some time where I step back from the computer, stop thinking about Rich Internet Applications, and focus on the amazing blessing that is my family. God has truly blessed us in an amazing way!

The picture on the right shows them sporting their ‘My First Thanksgiving’ outfits.

  1. Welcome to the world of twins. Mine are about to turn 8 in January. If you have not found one, a Mothers/Parents of Twins group can be a life saver. Feel free to ping me… Congrats to the entire family!

    Congrats! I remember the excitement and massive changes that took place when my daughter was born 2 years ago! It’s a whole new ball game now! Enjoy every minute, they grow so quickly! :-)

  3. Congratulations David and Shannon. So, the twins are more work than the AIR Cookbook?

    @Matt – Hmm….good question. I will say – I have reached a new level of exhaustion with the boys that I didn’t see with the book :)

  5. David and Shannon that’s a great news.

    Congrats to the entire family!

  13. Congratulations! I’ll expect the blogging activity to drop substantially. How long will it take for you to get them trained up on AIR? Oh, and you should make them a wish list Swyzzle show so relatives know what to get them.
