Zach! It must have been so overwhelming to go from being an only child to a big brother to twins. Zach shows very little jealousy. Instead he shows large amounts of love and excitement! He has been a huge help to us all. He is really mature. Sometimes I forget he is still a kid:)

I don't look good in anything!

My husband, family, friends, Twins Message Board, this blog and oh yeah, medication! LOL
