    Wow! David, I had no idea you had kids on the way! Looks like you’ve got a solid fan base started to me. The two most important pieces of advice I can give you for the next few months are a) you cannot spoil a newborn and b) sleep whenever you get the chance.

    Congratulations to you and your wife!

    Wow! Double congrats, Dad. Your wife deserves a medal.
    I have to ask…will your next child’s name begin with a C?

    Congratulations! (Here from SFNovelists.) They are absolutely gorgeous. And wow, your wife has all my admiration – I had just one baby and am still zonked 5 weeks later! I hope you both manage to get some rest soon.

    Congratulations!! They’re beautiful :)

    My advice to all new parents is to RELAX and ENJOY – they grow up fast! My babies are 13 and 11 – and I’m still waiting to catch up on my sleep ;>

    Congratulations to you both!!! They look beautiful!

    Congratulations. What a couple of cuties. My advice for the new parent is don’t listen to anyone’s advice. Except for that advice.

    Congrats! Glad to hear everything went well and all are healthy!

    I agree – prepare for the “well intentioned” advice barage – seek shelter.

    I agree – prepare for the “well intentioned” advice barage – seek shelter.

    Aw, that’s silly. Hold them a lot, love them more, keep their diapers clean and dry.

    Advice is great but that’s all you really need to know.

    They are adorable! Congratulations! (At that stage, there’s no way I could have held a remotely steady camera).

    Huge congrats, Dave!! Awesome!!!

    Congratulations! As a father of twin girls, I can relate.
    Welcome to the land of sleep deprivation and confusion. Keep in mind the feedings and diaper changes can get a little challenging.
    Our beautiful girls are almost seven years old now! How time flies..

    I am so happy for you all! So so happy!

    TRICK OR TREAT !? I laugh when I think of them in Halloween costumes at their future birthday parties. Congratulations!

    Belated congrats, Dave! Hope all are doing well, and that in the past several months, you enjoyed sleep while you could. :-)

    Beautiful babies, beautiful names. Congratulations to mom and dad!! :-)

    Thems some good-looking munchkins! As a father of 9 month old twins we really enjoy putting them in the double stroller and taking them to crowded places – the train of cutesy smiles they elicit in strangers has been dubbed ‘the rainbow gun’. As one proud father to another, I recommend liberal usage.

    Congrats on making something so beautiful.
