And what a journey it was! Babies are great company on the road. They occupied us just enough to make us feel useful, and were peacefully sleeping the rest of the time. We must treasure the days before “The License Plate Game” and other diversions are necessary.
1 stop on the way down . . . isn’t it lovely?
I guess “No Services” means “Not even a freaking picnic table for you!!”
What you can’t see here – the flies, ew. Bad parents, bad bad bad.
Made up for this on the way home when we stopped in Monticello and found the greenest lawn we could find. Just so happens it was in front of the county courthouse/ jail. Bad parents, bad bad bad.
As usual, the fellas are no worse for wear, the best babies we have ever had!!
Both the guys got to have a bottle with their GiGi – Great Grandmother! Such special days!
We think Gaga was a little shocked at how big they have gotten since he saw them last! Thanks for all the bottles and good lovin’ Gaga, Netnet and Juice! We think their lovin’ arms are the ones that encouraged them they can start sleeping through the night. Score? 2 to 2, and never on the same night, but who is counting? We are soo proud – and getting more rested every day.
Aunt Julie, the biggest sucker for babies around!
Matt matt matty matt, matty matty matt matt (and cousins – yum yum!).
Cousin Maggie could be the third twin (triplet?!), at ~12lbs. she is probably right between Matt & Leo. Notice she is the only one cooperative enough to look at the camera. Love you Mags!
And the first golf balls of the year were hit WAAAYYYY into the lake. Must be summer – so where is the sun?!
My next post will hopefully be a video of me feeding the twins “by myself.” It’s what everyone wants to know and see – and folks, it’s not pretty. The trick is, if there is someone in the room to videotape, there is someone in the room to help feed the twins, so I sure as heck am not going to waste their lovin’ arms on videotaping! We’ll see, maybe I’ll get my act together to do it, it’s pretty funny. 2 weeks ago (before the arrival of their grandmother and auntie) I found myself laying one guy across my lap and sitting the other on his back for burping. I’m definitely not going to reveal who got which position.
The guys smile lots these days but you have no idea how hard it is to catch simultaneous smiles on camera!
Matt up close and personal!
Do you think they look identical? :
Big boys at 12 weeks old!
Matt’s eyes are so bright and beautiful!
And Leo’s eyelashes make us melt!
Party on Wayne . . . Party on Garth!
Anyone who has met these women in any capacity knows immediately they are in the presence of greatness, and true goodness.
Melissa is such a natural with children of all ages!
Anna knows little boys from YEARS of experience! She & I are also the big sisters to much younger sisters, baby-training started very early for us!
Yeah, right . . .
It has taken me too long to get this together, forgive me. Anna & Melissa visited us for a weekend, cooked, did laundry, kept us great company, and did an amazing job documenting how smitten we are with our our twins, Matt & Leo.
Anna is a professional freelance photographer extraordinaire, blogger, mom of 2 gorgeous boys, wife of one of the sweetest men I know, an amazing friend, aunt, sister, oh god I could go on and on! Melissa is a high-powered prosecutor in Salem, MA, travel buff, lover of babies, an amazing friend, photography buff, and effusive gift-giver. We Keegans love them so.
A sample of their work:
The twins are so much bigger now, and we are relieved to have such beautiful photos of such early and special days, for surely we were too tired to have any working memory. Still too tired. . . note to self – take more pictures.
