Ever since Melinda announced that she was pregnant with twins I would get asked the question, "are you jealous?". I have to admit that I was just a smidgen but only for a half second! The memories of C as an infant came flooding quickly back and altough she was a great infant and baby, I just could not ever imagine two of her. Looking back, I don't remember it all but I do remember those feedings and my worries. My worries consumed me! As I answer the question to the person that has asked about my being jealous I repsond, "The Lord gave the better twin the twins"! He did. Melinda is the most patient person I know (besides our mother) and she's so laid back. Those that know her, know exactly what I am talking about! She's great and unbelieveable all around! Of course now we have our moments of disagreements and reality and at the end of the day moments too but all in all, she's a great mother to her twins! My whole family is still revealing with the fact that they are here, healthy, and thriving little ones! I can't wait to see what their little lives will bring to us as well as to each other! I just love them!
Here's some more pictures of them from when they were born and first brought home!
