Congratulations. So how many does this make?

And your daughter-in-law is lucky. My brother said he wasn't sharing his birthday so my wife had to stay in labor an extra day. He didn't tell her til after that he was joking. :)

Congratulations Ken!

I hope your son & wife can come up with better names than baby A & baby B though. :p :D

Although.... making the labeled hats make it easier to tell them apart. :rolleyes:

Congrats, Grandpa. Fraternal or identical? I have twin grandkids, fraternal boy & girl, that will soon be 10. If I knew grandkids were so great, I would have had them first.

Thanks folks! Little Aaryn and Heiden are #6 and #7 as far as grandkids. Here's the catch though...we have 4 great-grandchildren too.

Our previous youngest grandson was 18 a few weeks ago. So there is an 18 year gap between grandkids and 4 great-grandkids in between.

Congrats Ken...
Speaking of the same birthday, my son was born on 08-08-88. My niece's son was born on 08-08-04. And my other niece's sons (twins) were born on 08-08-07. So August 8th is a day set aside for birthdays in our family.

Congrats! I am sure as soon as the last teenager goes, I will start thinking about being a grandfather. It has to be less stressful :)

congrats on the twins! On a similar note, my grandfather(mother's father), mother, and sister were all born on July 21st. 3 generations on the same day. We called it Christmas II around our house.

My oldest (eldest?) son was born on my 30th b'day. It's got to happen 1/365th of the time, right?

Congrats on the addition to the Fitzgerald clan. We'll be raising a pint to ye.

Grandskids are definitely more fun than kids. I found that a gift of a Great Dane puppy and a set of drums really evens the score. :-)

I suppose that would be a start!:D

Lori....I'm so glad you replied! Let me make you a little more jealous with one last photo. This was taken late yesterday afternoon......

Together again....


Proud new Dad

That is awesome, Ken!!! Congrats to the whole family!!

Incidentally, I love the way twins are labeled in the hospital, with an "A" and "B". Good idea, for sure! Of course, with MY twins, it was a bit easier because one had a stem, and one didn't!! :D
