Rumors

When I wrote yesterday's post, I had no idea I was starting my own pregnancy rumor!!!! While Pea and I would be thrilled if that were the case, I must assure you that I was just fending off that bug that's been making the rounds. A day on the couch and some chicken soup brimming with garlic and spinach have set me right again. For now, the only additions to our little family will be of the fibery nature.

Speaking of which, look what the stork brought yesterday!!!

The latest addition to our family.

Bestus Buddy Socks
Conceived: March 21, 2006
Born: April 6, 2006
DNA:Knit Picks Parade in Checkers

It's twins!!!The labor with this pair wasn't too bad. The only time I was crying for something to numb the pain was during the short-row heels. Although the picture on the left doesn't show it very well, these twins are almost identical.

Non-matching birth-marksThe only distinguishing feature is the non-matching birth-marks on their heels. I knew this was the case early in the birthing process, but in the interest of saving yarn decided I would be okay with it. The new arrivals are resting quite comfortably on "mama's" feet as I type.

Aren't those babies sweet~! And nearly identical twins, too!

Glad to hear that labor went smoothly. Did you get an epidural before the heels?

Have a great weekend, Karen!

Very rare that the stork brings identical (nearly) twins, you know. Good lookin' kids too.

Do they make an epidural for short-rows?
