You know how you get to be part of these online parenting forums and the people there become your friends online and you wonder what it would be like to meet them? Well, when you’re parenting twins (perhaps even more so than singletons?), my sister tells me that the group of people in her “November 2015 twins” Facebook group are just such an incredible resource for her. I remember when I had my first baby how important my online group like this was to me — they were the ones I’d ask just about every age-related question and get so many helpful, relevant answers.
Well when my sister told me she was going to meet a bunch of the other parents and their twins from her online group the other day and would I like to come carry a bucket carseat and hold a baby, how could I refuse? A room full of babies? What makes me happier?
And then (seriously, I am not kidding – I didn’t think of it until) that morning, as I was getting in the car I realized I should bring my camera. Yes! Document this! Of course! Why didn’t I think of this before?
So here are a handful of photos I took on Saturday when these three gorgeous sets of twins and their mamas and helpers met up for appetizers, wine, and a delicious lunch.
Amazing dimples and grins for mamas abounded:
We had six sets of arms and six babies, but sometimes mamas and helpers had to get stuff done, man. (You know, make lunch? Take photos?) That’s the way it is with twins. Sometimes you just need to let them sleep where they land ;). I love this of D next to the wine glass and the half empty bottle!
At one point the boys even had entertainment from this fantastic great-grandma:
Look at this grin!
Oh those twinkling eyes:
Sometimes you’re not totally in the mood to pose for a photo with a crew of your besties, you know? These guys have a lot to learn before they join Taylor Swift’s group of friends and tweet about their #squadgoals while they walk the red carpet together for photos…
Most of the time there were arms enough to cuddle all – and everybody loved it.
It sure was a room full of adorable.
My niece and nephew were totally cool with the bouncy seats while I shot a handful of photos and their mom noshed some dip. Jack would like some of his mom’s dip, though…
Thanks for inviting me to your party, guys! Can’t wait to watch these guys grow up together. More photos next time, I hope!
