Our family

Who are we?

I’m one of the moms in a two mom household. I gave birth to boy/girl twins in August of 2009.

As seen here, in our first family photo:

You can see my lovely, teary-eyed wife quite well – she’s holding,uh, let me peer closely. I think she’s holding Snort. Coconut is being held by the phantom pair of arms, also known as one of the zillion people who were attending their birth.  I’m the one with the blood pressure cuff on.

We both love babywearing, though I suppose I do it a bit more as I’m the stay-at-home mom, for now.

The real stars of this blog are, of course, Coconut and Snort:

They are insanely cheerful and relaxed babies – most of the time. We didn’t start wearing them till they were at least 2 or 3 months old, because I had severe complications of pregnancy and couldn’t walk for almost two months after they were born.

I think this is taken on the first weekend we wore them out:

And, finally, we recently took a transatlantic flight with the babies. We decided on ringslings as the sling of choice for 16 hours of travel, including 8 hours trapped on a plane:

I’ve known my wife since 1998, and we got together in 2000. That means we had nine years of a fabulous marriage before Snort and Coconut made their appearance. We adore the babies – and wouldn’t know what to do with ourselves if we only had one!

I’m from a country on one side of the Atlantic, my wife is from a country on the other. After one too-long year living apart, I moved across the world to be with her. We are lucky to have two babies who are citizens of both countries.

This blog is our attempt to share some of our happiness, and some of the things we’ve learned, with you.
