First Pregnancy Report
9/9/2008 6:10:00 PM

I realize that I've been unusally quiet in the past few months.  Things have changed in our lives quite a bit.   The rapid growth of the photography business leaves me with very little free time.  I often find myself working late into the night, as I want to maintain a very high standard of quality.  Needless to say, it's had quite an impact on my ability to pursue other projects; like maintaining the site.

However, we have an announcement to make... Wick is pregnant.  It's been a tough few years, but we're confirmed as pregnant at this point.  What's more, it's not just single-pregnant.  We're double-pregnant.  Twins.  Two of them.  More than one.

This is our first ultrasound.  I'm far from an expert at reading these things, but even I'm cable of counting the dots.  There seems to be some debate as to the correct pluralization.  Fetuses seems more popular.  Feti seems more based in the Latin roots.  Grammar aside, there are two babies cooking.

I've posted higher resolution scans in the family photo gallery.

(I'm not sure if RIT's math courses are sufficient to get past your spamblocker)

CONGRATULATIONS! That's fantastic! I discovered the news by coming to look for Halloween pics - my friends here in London don't know how to celebrate it properly. You're so lucky to be having twins!
