Congratulations to our good friends, Vanessa and John! Charlotte and Eli were born July 2nd. They are healthy, beautiful, and perfect. Vanessa is recovering well.

Ryan and I are so happy for our friends. When we visited, both babies were sleeping. Caring for twin infants looks like a piece of cake!

And congratulations to big sister, Gracie, who seems to be handling the change well so far (with the aid of cupcake bribery).

We are looking forward to seeing John walking through our neighborhood with: a double infant stroller as big as the Titanic; two-and-a-half-year-old Gracie running ahead; pug Shea yanking on his leash to "examine" a bush behind them; and a cold cup of coffee in the stroller's cup holder that hasn't been touched. Maybe the rapping dads in The Dad Life video will give John a guest role in their next gig.

We are thrilled that 2011 is a great year for our friends, and we look forward to watching the twins grow.
