update, with twins

Our children, Tobias Sebastian and Alessandra Veronica, were born on December 2. This has obviously put a dent in my blogging. :) Although they have spent some time in the NICU, particularly Toby, they are doing great now. Eating tons, gaining lots of weight. It’s been a complete paradigm shift for me-not just the lack of consistent sleep (although that is a biggie). Fatherhood is both extremely natural and utterly alien at the same time, and the parts where those mix aren’t always easy to discern. Kristin is, also, an amazing mother, and our relationship in its sleep deprived state has also grown in these short 6 weeks since they were born. They were some trying circumstances when they were in the NICU, but seeing them happy and healthy has been one of the greatest joys of my life-and we’re only getting started.

I probably won’t be blogging too much about parenting here. But my son and daughter have already changed me in both inperceptible and seismic ways, and that will continue to grow as they grow.
