Pointy Haired Dad



Good news… Jo has given birth to a baby girl and a baby boy. Twins, that is right. All three are doing great. Mom is recovering from her C-section anesthesia. Babies are busy drinking milk, burping and sleeping.

I got home just now to eat something and take food for my folks in the hospital. More updates with pics will be later.

Meanwhile share our joy and welcome them to the world… 🙂

    Congrats Chandoo! Nice to see that you try to be efficient in other areas of your life as well...

    Let me tell you a secret: the other guys can't even imagine how great is to have twins. And for the kids it's great too: they always have someone to play with.

    Don't fool yourself: they will never leave you alone with your blog (if they do, that means troubles).
