Things that Make You Say "Aww" . . .

My nephew and his wife gave birth to twin girls on July 26th.  They were big girls -- 7 lbs. 6 oz. and 6 lbs. 14 oz. at birth.  Twins run in their mother's family.  Both of the maternal grandparents are twins.  But I cannot recall any twins in my immediate line.

With the permission of Violet and Isabel's parents, I want to share these newest members of the Jones family.

The two girls were welcomed into a home that had a big brother, Quentin.

They definitely seem to be happiest together -- after all, they aren't strangers to each other.

Have you ever been in a situation where one yawn seemed to lead to another?  So have they.

So welcome to the family, Violet and Isabel.  You've been born into a great one!

Great Aunt Kath


  1. Congratulations on the new members of your family! One of my daughters gave birth to twins- a boy and a girl almost 8 years ago. We have so many photos of them laying together, laying on top of each other, around each other. Yours look so new!

  2. Thanks, Kristin and Carol. It is great, isn't it?

  3. Melissa,
    I love that picture, too.

  4. Congratulations - they are gorgeous! And fancy having both maternal grandmothers as twins - do you have photos of "Twins Down the Generations"?

  5. Susan,
    No, I don't -- but that sounds like a great idea.

  6. They are adorable. And I agree - the yawn photo is priceless.

  7. What treasures! Fabulous photographs. Young Quentin is going to have his hands full someday soon. Congratulations to all!
