OH MY GOSH!!!!!

Introducing our son Tedros and our daughter Wokenesh. We got the call a few hours ago and we're going nuts. I'm far too frazzled to post much yet. He is about 7 months old and she is 3 months old. Holy Freaking Cow!!! This is a good feeling.

When I told Helena about her new cousins, she told me her dad already told her, and that her and Leo had been dancing in the other room. (Not that Leo gets it at all!) We clicked on to see the photos, but then I got all confused by the pink bib. Because it appeared that the other baby was wearing a dress. I thought maybe the pink bib was just a trick! And, we were right! It was a little boy! So, congratulations. Theo is especially happy to discover two relatives so close in age. If your one baby is born on April 24; Helena is April 25; and John is April 22. So, that will be a busy week.

By the way, is this a coincidence or what, I just finished the book Attitcus last week.

Well, this is my first blog comment ever. And Betsy, you should also know that yours is the first blog i have ever read. (Yes I am so not in the modern world) Again I am so thrilled for you and Paul. If I know you at all, I'm sure you've been reading up on dozens of parenting books boosting your already inherent mothering skills. You guys are both so great. You two and your two beautiful children will bring so many mutual blessings in your lives. Can't wait to find out more! Melissa
