And here are the results.


The Twins, Sofy and Dirk

We haven’t been the best at taking pictures of our kids.  We’ll try better.  They are almost 4 weeks old.  Tomorrow will be their first holiday, Halloween.  We’ll definitely have some pictures of the costumes that they will be wearing.  Till then here’s a pic of them rolled up like a burrito.  Such cute faces….

Our friend Dianna found this tag at a Georgia State building.  It seems as if Dirk has started early with his graffiti skills.



Clown in Space October 10, 2009

I’ve been seeing news headlines about a clown in space on several internet news sites.  So I finally clicked on a link and interestingly enough it is the founder/owner of Cirque du Soleil.  Here’s the article.

Circus tycoon, 2 crew board orbiting space station

KOROLYOV, Russia — A Canadian circus billionaire boarded the International Space Station on Friday and promptly played the entertainer, donning a clown nose after a smooth trip up from Earth.

Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberte became the seventh paying space tourist to travel to the station, where he plans to mix clownish fun with a serious message about the growing shortage of clean water on the planet 220 miles (355 kilometers) below.


The Twins at Home October 9, 2009

Sofy and Dirk are finally at home.  We are putting them up in the same crib for the cuteness factor.

And the same swinger/rocker. (Thanks Grandma and Grandpa, this was one of the best presents ever.)

And look how many medical bands you get.

There was one for each baby and the Hilary and I each had 2, one for each baby.  The seventh band was for Hilary because she was getting admitted into the hospital. (Thank you DeKalb Medical and the folks at the Bobbie Taylor Women’s Building.)

Welcome to the world Sofia Necitas and Dirk Antonio who were born on Sunday October 4th during the Simpsons.  On the right is Sofy.  She was born 8:18pm at 5 lbs, 6.6 ozs and measured 18.5 inches.  On the left is Dirk who was born a minute after his sister at 5 lbs, 6.4 ozs and measured exactly the same at 18.5 inches.

It was a very long weekend at the hospital.  We are still here.  Everyone is well, recovering, learning, and to say the least very tired.  Thank you to all for their support and well wishes.
