My son, Declan, was born March 31, 2007. Declan is my wife and I’s third child. The twins, Cameron and Zoe, are very excited. We are all a little sleep deprived, but that is to be expected. The great thing about is that this time nothing will bother me. I remember leaving the hospital with the twins thinking these people can’t possibly send us home with two infants. We have absolutely no clue what we are doing! Somehow, we got by. I don’t remember a whole lot of the first several months because there was very little sleep involved. Thankfully, the crew of the ferry I took to work every day would wake me up when I got into Boston. After a week at home with Declan, it’s a breeze so far. The “little dude”, as Cameron and Zoe refer to him, is great. Even at only a week old he still finds a way to make us laugh. I don’t want to jinx us, but two infants are far more than twice the work of one. I guess it helps that until now I only knew what is like to have two.
