Twice Blessed

Time for some twin talk! To update new readers, my grand-daughter delivered twin boys on March 4, 2011. 
She has been keeping us posted daily on her own blog with photos and info. Her mother, my daughter Polly, has been staying with them for the past couple of weeks, along with her sister, Kathryn, shown below.  
(Becky's sister, Polly's daughter, my granddaughter and now aunt to twins!) 
As you can see, Aunt Kathryn gets her turn taking care of her very own Bitty Baby! 




 Isn't this the cutest little bundle? But wait, there's more!
 Hey buddy, you awake?

Here are the boys, each with their own quilt. The boys are identical, the quilts are similar but different enough that they will someday be able to tell them apart. It remains to be seen whether we will be able to tell the boys apart.



Here is Aunt Kathryn keeping a diaper tally. Wow! 24 per day!!

 This lovely lady is Travis's grandmother. She has four grandchildren who have identical twins! Can you believe that? And they say the splitting of the egg is just a fluke. 
Makes one wonder.
 There are more photos of these beautiful babes 
than I could possibly share, but I have to leave you with one last image that was created last weekend after it snowed in Utah.

 SNOW BABIES!!
Kathryn and Travis had some fun!
Come back and see us again.

Ha, the snow babies are cute but not as cute as those real twin babies! Kathryn is having a great time, isn't she! Oh, the babies are so cute.

Marcie, you are absolutely too young looking to be a great-grandmama! Love the twin and their quilts -- and I'm with you... Accident of nature? Not a chance! Beautiful!
Blessings,

Sometimes when I see a gorgeous quilt, I respond with "Showoff!", but this time, YOU get it for those little darlings. "SHOWOFFFFF" 8-)))

What a blessing. The snowman is just coooo cute!

..so your a great grandma now?? You certainly don't look old enough! haha!! The twins are adorable; my first reaction was: aaaaah.... Congrats, I'm sure you'll be a really GREAT grandma!

That snowman couldn't be any cuter. Great sense of humor! Splitting of the egg may be a fluke, but it's a fluke that travels in families--that's for sure. And it tends to skip past a generation. Both of my grandmothers gave birth to twins (3 sets between them), then no twins for one generation, then my sister and I each had a set of twins. They're a double blessing.
Congratulations to your entire family!
