David and Elias

So yes, it's been a while. The babies are almost three months old, and I have yet to post
an official picture on this blog. Some of you may wonder, "what's he been doing this whole time? How lazy can you get? Where are the pictures, already?" I assume those of you wondering these things have never taken care of twins.

This summer I have discovered two things: 1) taking care of two babies at the same time is more than twice as hard as taking care of one; and 2) the Octomom is without a doubt, hands-down the most insane person in the history of mankind. In fact, I'm pretty sure my top three would be something like this:
  1. The Octomom
  2. Jack Nicholson in "The Shining"
  3. Anyone who appears in a Jackass movie
Little-known fact: you can train kids to reproduce like amoebas. Here, David is just about done forming from the top of Hanna's head. It sure beats labor!

David and Elias begin their training for the 2028 U.S. Olympic Men's Synchoronized Diving Team. They're also learning pizzazz: David is dressed as some sort of elf with a stylish vomit stain, Elias is going as Rasputin.

This picture has to be one of my favorites. Neither of them looks like they particularly want to be there.

The obligatory first bath shot, with the added wrinkle that it's a picture of someone else taking a better picture of the same thing. Interesting fact: Hanna's camera is better than ours. She's packing six megapixels and has her name monogrammed right on the front.

Here, David and Elias take a well-deserved breather after a tough morning of sleeping, pooping, farting, and more sleeping.

The boys are very healthy and are growing at an amazing rate. They are both well over 10 pounds and starting to focus their eyes on us. Their eyes are still blue and their hair, eyebrows and eyelashes are all light-colored.
