It’s a Boy…. And Another Boy

Les Boys - 4 Minutes Old
Today we finally had our twins: And they’re Boys. Yup! Les Boys sont arrivés.

Frédéric Guillaume was born at 16h45 and weighed 7lbs even and Jacques Bernard was born only a minute later at 6lbs 3oz. Mum is doing very well and recovering nicely from the c-section. Freddy is feeding already and sleeping nicely next to me as I blog this while Jacques is spending a few extra minutes in the Easy-Bake Oven to make sure he works out this whole “Why’d you take me out of this nice warm place” issue.

I will blog more later… for now make sure you are on Flickr and have requested to be view my friends PhotoStream (just add me as your friend: Here are some of the pictures from the Set so far:

[UPDATE] And if you guys want to have a party in the comments please go ahead, we are checking the site often enough on the BlackBerry.

    Just catching up on e-mail of the past few weeks. We have been away in Florida although I must have missed this before going away. In any event, what lovely news that you now have boys to go with the girls! They look very sweet and I know they are in great hands! Congratulations to all our very best wishes to Denise. It sounds like you went through quite a time with Jacques and was happy to know it all worked out. I know the Jewish General neo-natal unit very well as both Sarah and Jeremy spent time there. Jeremy was there for a few weeks as he had been premature and had a few issues himself before he could come home. It is a very emotional time for parents and it sounds like you can all do with a quiet time to recuperate and enjoy each other. Thanks for sending us news and keep in touch!
