I'm an Aunt (Times Two)!

Yes, it's true. Twins have graced my life in the form of nephews in Nebraska, and I'm happy as a clam! My mom let me know on Friday that my sister-in-law was going in for a C-section, so to stay tuned. As the day rolled on and Shabbos grew closer, I heard nothing. Finally, my mom texted to say to check Facebook. Frantically, I headed to Facebook and saw ... nothing! Minutes before Shabbos, I called my mom -- no answer! I texted her, and then called her again, and left a message urging her to call our home phone, only realizing that she didn't have the number! Ach! Luckily, Tuvia's mom stepped in and let my mom know when and where to call: around noon on Saturday, because we could listen to the message as it recorded!

Thus, around noon today, while we sat at our Shabbos table with two other couples, my mom called and I relayed the names and weights to our guests and Tuvia. Our family welcomed to the world the most lovely of baby boys, with more hair than I'd expect on twins born early. Here they are!

Mazal tov to parents John and Jessica Edwards! I can't wait to buy these kids TONS of clothes and toys ... I'm going to use and abuse the title of "aunt." I'm toying with having the kids call me Aunt C or Aunt Jo. What do y'all think?
