Told by Jemma.
Life with two toddlers was a lot of work. Man, they were needy.
Looking at their beautiful faces was worth it though, I gotta say.
Luckily the twins had each other, so they kept themselves entertained even when Phoenix and I were busy.
We were busy a lot.
Phoenix was a great daddy though.
He did most of the training.
“Come to Daddy, Phoebe.”
Jovanna was easy. She kept herself entertained most of the time.
She and her dad have a better relationship now… I think. They talk on the phone sometimes.
The town was bustling. There was a bit of a baby boom for a while.
Isaac Costa and Rosie Cooper’s girl Gwen will soon be a child.
Eddie Starr and Shae Roque have a girl Abby, and another one on the way.
Krizstina and Stevan’s brother Dejan have a little girl, Willa. I can see a lot of Doppler genes in her.
Sunny was ready to pop when Jaycie and I hung out with her a few days before my wedding. Borage is the daddy of course.
Just as fate would have it, she went into labor in my living room.
Baby Jay is really cute though.
Here’s Vinna’s sexy hubby Michele with their new baby girl, Marina. Remember she went into labour at my wedding.
Lulu and Joel are expecting!
I met up with her at the end-of-summer festival when she told me the news.
“So are you sure you don’t want a big party for your birthday?”
“No, just invite Grammy and maybe the uncles my age and that’d be enough.”
Funny, Jovanna wasn’t party-crazy like the rest of us. I guess she’d had enough party from my bachelorette and she caught a glimpse of the madness. Haha. She didn’t even have a kid play-day like I did before my teen birthday. She was ready to grow up and be mature.
Mom: “Just let her be. She’s a different breed than the rest of us, but that doesn’t mean she’ll be like an outsider. I’m sure she’ll fit right in once her personality develops. She’s such a sweet girl..”
Me: “Yes she is. I love her a lot.”
“Maxie, you’ll be a big boy soon too! I feel like I barely know you.”
It was a fairly uneventful age-up.
But wow, my girl is beautiful.
Jovi, come let me get a better look at your face.
Just look at my girlie!!
“Haha yeah, I’m a teen!”
Now that she was big enough to reach the piano pedals properly, she practiced a lot more.
And worked on her painting.
Before I knew it, I was getting old too.
Not sure how I felt about that.
“Honey, you’re still beautiful, trust me.”
“In fact, you’re even more beautiful. Look at that smile!”
“Okay, it’s not bad I suppose.”
“Are you kidding me… you’re as hot as ever.”
Spooky Day came and we decided to have a costume party.
Phoenix: “How come I have to be the weiner?”
“It’s tradition, baby! All the well-hung men get to be the hot dog. ‘Cause you’re hot!”
Mom: “I’m a burglar!!”
We dressed up the twins. Little Phoebe was a dinosaur.
A stinky dinosaur! Hehe.
And Fefe was an adorable bear!
And me? Well, apparently I couldn’t wear a costume because there’s another baby on the way. Yep I got the focus.
Borage: “You guys screw like minks don’t you?”
“Are you jealous, B?”
“‘Course not. Sunny does too.”
“Yeah! Moar babies!!”
