The happy (tired) family!
Matt is also into photography so I hope this picture meets his expectations!
I know most people like pictures where everyone is looking at the camera but I will always love photos like this - sheer joy with arms full of love.
Before I get to pictures of the twin boys, I have to mention that Milo looks so grown up all of a sudden. I forget how big the leap from 2 to 3 was, and Milo has changed so much since I saw him in late December. Such a sweetie pie!
First up, Oliver. Everyone is fairly certain her boys are fraternal as they look very different. He is a quiet, peaceful baby. Cried only when he was hungry or needed a change. Content to just hang out. He reminded me so much of baby Alex.
He didn't even fuss when I put this hat on him. He let me practice taking a bazillion pictures.
And Gabriel. Oh he cracked me up. He knew exactly what he wanted and protested if he wasn't being held enough or wanted something. He reminded me so much of baby Nate.
I had to be fast with the camera because he did not want to be hanging out being a model. And pretty much whenever I propped him next to Oliver, he would cry. (I LOVE THIS PIC!)
It reminded me of my failed attempts to get my boys to cuddle for Just.One.Picture. Cuddle close = instant crying. No peacefully cuddling twin pictures but still so sweet.
I will always remember the first few months as completely kicking our butts, but in the end, having twins is awesome in so many ways. I'm glad to welcome Irene to the twin club as I can't imagine a better twin (plus one!) mom than her.
