Meeting the Twins

We just met the twins - and boy, they're amazing! They're so tiny and precious and fragile and loveable and wonderful.

Welcome to planet Earth guys, we're glad to have you! I promise, life gets easier once you a little more grown up (but then it gets harder again, but we can ignore that fact for now).

I took all sorts of photos, but for some reason, the hospital has blocked Picasa. So, you'll have to get by with just a few photos uploaded below.

You can tell below that I included my hand in a bunch of the shots. I did this to try to show some scale. It's hard to believe, that at the moment, the baby's heads are the size of the palm of my hand. Life is truly miraculous when you think we all started off more or less this size.

Crap, can't seem to upload pictures using the usual Blogger technique or Picasa. Giving Twitpic a try:

Update: Finally, I managed to post the pictures. Check them out here (or here).

  2. We hope everyone is doing well. The babies are just beautiful! That is one strong mama, and two amazingly strong babies. Congratulations to mom and dad, and also to you, Aunt Shira and Uncle Ben. We're thinking of you all. Keep the pictures coming!

    They are gorgeous! I remember when my twin nephews were born, I fell in love with them immediately.

    Mr. Ben Simon, Mazel Tov to your sister! What wonderful news! This whole mirroring of our lives is getting just a bit out of control ;-).
