That is so awesome, Jeff. There is no better "job" than being a parent. It's one big ball of slushy, gooey worries and fun with limitless rewards. I wish you and your wife nothing but the easiest pregnancy and delivery.

Super-congrats!

Awesome!  And twins to boot!

This will be the best thing that has ever happened to you and your wife - I guarantee it!

You'll have so much fun sharing your life (and hobby) with them!

She is due in early August, but will most likely deliver in late July because we are expecting twins, which usually arrive a few weeks early I'm told - about 38wks instead of 40wks  (they arrive early even without the traumatic betrayal of your Jedi husband).



Meddling in my mind and figuring time backwards, doesn't this put conception at or around the release of ROTS on DVD? :o

Jeff,

I meant to tell you tonight - congrats.  As I'm sure every parent has told you - it is a blast.  Hope they like SW - Mine, he's still into the wiggles, although he recognizes the Star Wars logo.

Time for an update...

Things are going quite well in our house.  Mommy-to-be is doing very well, minor aches and pains are setting in.  Also setting in are the weird cravings and the required trips to the grocery store at midnight to buy odd food items.

We went to the doctor last week for a level 2 ultrasound (recommended for multiples to be sure that both babies are doing well).  This ultrasound is a bit more complicated than the usual version since it can do color for contrasts - things like infrared, density, etc.  As a result, we had some very cool scans - a chance to see the valves in their little hearts, the blood flow in the cord, lotsa of other very cool things.   :)

Also as a result of this level two ultrasound, we learned the sexes of our little babies.  We put the family members through a fun guessing game and tortured them for a bit before revealing the news...

We will be having fraternal twin boys.

Very exciting to say the least, and knowing we will be having two boys set a few changes in motion for the color scheme of the developing nursery.  Less neutral colors, more blues.   ;)

22 weeks down, quite a few more to go...  :D

Great news Jeff!  It's good to hear that all four of you are doing well.  ;)

Fraternal twin boys, eh?  Sounds like you could have an Anakin vs Obi-Wan future.  Better start buying your lightsabers.  ;D

Twin boys -- how exciting -- and fun! :)  Congratulations.  Glad to hear that mommy-to-be is still feeling pretty good.  I see many more late night craving runs, diaper runs, and, of course, toy runs in your future. ;)  FYI -- WalMart has twin packs of lightsabers....... ;)
