Long-Distance Twins

I don't have much time to do a big blog post right now, so I just thought I'd post a few pictures of my son Gabriel and his cousin Michelle. Gabe and Michelle are only 5 days apart in age, and we often refer to them as being "long-distance twins".Just like most twins, they are polar opposites. Gabe is quite the haole (Hawaiian term for "white"), and Michelle has lovely olive skin and dark hair.Michelle is as quiet as a mouse, and even when she's severely ticked off, her cry is what I'd refer to as a 4 on the "rictus scale of torture". Gabe reaches a 9.5 when he's happy. His excited little shrieks could peel paint.That's okay, though. My bedroom is still covered in unfinished sheet rock, with no hint of being able to paint it in sight.I'll try to post more pictures of the two sweeties later!

Some of my family have what they call "twin cousins" who share birthdays. Cute babies!

Love all the great pics of those two beautiful babies! So cute! Can't wait to hear how your weekend went. :)

You would not believe this...Michelle has actually started the "tree frog" screech. She is sitting in her jumper just singin' and a screechin'. She must have learned this from her twin cousin. :) I thought it was cute how they would just look at each other. I can't wait to do a scrapbook 2-page spread on these two cuties! With all the sweet pictures Mom did, I may need to make it a 4-page spread. We have adorable kiddos. :)

We really need to make sure we take a lot of pictures of them at their very first Christmas...

Two adorable babies ;) It's fun when you have cousins the same age as you. I had that growing up myself.

Hope you are enjoying all this cold weather we've been having LOL ;) (me neither!, next is ice and snow icky.)
