after a hiatus of some months:


I'm trying out Picasa as a new hosting location for the pictures; I'm assuming that eventually I'm going to have to stop using UCI's computers for this. If you have trouble viewing them (or any other feedback about or experience with Picasa), let me know.

In this case, TEN MONTHS' WORTH. So we're practically caught up to present-day again.

Hope y'all enjoy them. :)

Warning: the twins are not getting any less cute. Those susceptible to such things should get their Joo Janta Peril-Sensitive sunglasses on prior to viewing.

We've filled the gap before the twins' arrival, so we're now caught up through August 2007. Go us.


Oh, and there's another 'caption contest' in there somewhere. Heck, this time we might even edit the caption if we get some good entries. :)

In mostly unrelated news, Adric pulled himself up to standing today (he's been crawling for a couple of weeks), and Riley started crawling in earnest today (forwards, that is). [INSERT DEITY HERE] help us all.

So, you remember those kids I have? The ones that I used to post pictures of with wisecracking captions?

Well, we didn't really stop taking pictures. But we did stop posting them for a while (most recently for a hard drive failure, but less recently I'm going to have to go with sheer lack of copons).

So anyway, while we're nowhere near completely caught up, I've just added on five months' worth. Only eight or so to go. And still with the smartass captions, because I know that's what brings people back. :)

They are posted here:

and here:

http://www.ics.uci.edu/~jmadden/twins/ (nominally pictures of the twins)

As usual, the "uploaded date" is listed in parentheses so you can at least see what got added recently.

Have fun!

The latest stuff is up at

http://www.ics.uci.edu/~jmadden/twins (main site)

and specifically at

http://www.ics.uci.edu/~jmadden/twins/2007JuneJuly/2007JuneJuly.html (the latest batch).

Corwin pics, twin pictures, gratuitous cat pictures...they're all there. Along with the usual occasionally-snarky captions.

We are proud to present our new twin boys:

Adric Connor (formerly known as "Baby B"), born 10:04 AM, 6 lbs 2 oz, 18 inches
Riley Owen (he who was once "Baby A"), born 10:06 AM, 7 lbs 11 oz, 19 inches

on Friday, 15 June 2007.

Megan and both boys are doing just fine; we came home from the hospital on Monday. Megan is actually doing very, very well in terms of recovery; she hasn't started doing handstands yet, but she's been up and about and only occasionally shows obvious signs of still being in recovery from major surgery (such as when laughing too hard makes her stomach hurt). Feeding two newborns is somewhat challenging, but we're working it out (imagine, for instance, Joshua finger-feeding both twins at once). Fortunately, Joshua has four weeks of parental leave (which he's taking now, on the grounds that otherwise he might as well not come home :) ), while Megan has 12 weeks off.

They're only a few days old, and they look pretty similar (especially when wrapped in a few blankets) but we're already starting to learn some differences between them. (We believe that they're fraternal rather than identical twins, although we haven't had this tested.) Adric is perhaps a bit more alert and aware of what's going on around him; he was checking things out when he was only a few hours old. Riley is more physical, and has several times demonstrated his patented 'thrashing' method of (a) escaping his wrappings and (b) deniably whapping his brother upside the head.

Corwin has been doing really well, for the most part. He likes spending time with the twins, would pick them up himself if given the opportunity, and only occasionally gets bent out of shape because they're using an old chair or stroller that he used to use.

As a silly astrological bonus: not only are they Geminis (heh)...since they were born in the Chinese Year of the (Fire) Pig (holy flaming pigs, Batman!), this of course means that they are Twin Pigs and that David Lynch will presumably be dropping by any time now to make a television show of them.

Pictures and other stuff are available at http://www.ics.uci.edu/~jmadden/twins .
