I've had countless number of people coo (we're talking about grown people here) at the sight of my twins, and I've also experienced many people tell me how cool it'd be to have twins. Regarding the latter, I'm thinking to myself, really?! Are you dreaming, perhaps in a different galaxy?
Try being pregnant with twins. You think being pregnant with one child is laborious; try multiples. Are you swooning at the mere idea or novelty of twins? Try taking care of them all day, every day. Or, try taking care of twins, in addition to being responsible for other children.
I do love my twins; make no mistake of that. Not a day goes by that I am not thankful the Lord blessed me with these twins (or my two older children, for that matter).
Christine and Christian joined us, outside the womb, in the the world, a short month and a half ago. Yet, they are showing such differences in personality. Christine came into the world quite; not a cry came out of her. I didn't know babies could come into the world without a cry. She is still the more peaceable, calmer child. Christian came into the world screaming his head off. He more easily startles and gets agitated. When he's not happy, he cries like the universe is ending. But look at the sleeping position they both are exhibiting in this photograph. That was not staged, folks. That was their doing. Happy twinning.
