Here are the up dates on the twins.  Becca has wanted to name a son James from the beginning but Chris said no so they settled on Jacob, after sitting with Becca during the birth he said she could name him what ever she wanted so the official names are James Geffrey and Colby Joseph.  I am still not sure of the spelling of Colby but that is the grandmother’s best guess so I’ll go with it for now.  Both boys weighted in at 5 pounds 3 ounces and 18 inches long, a good size for twins and a month early.  Colby was the leader, the one that insisted on being born on Sept 2.  He arrived healthy and strong piping the tune for the day,  James was not ready yet so spent some time in the NICU but is doing great and is expected to join his mother and brother shortly.  They were born at 9:02 on Sept 2.  Welcome boys,  of all the children, grand children and great grand children these two are the only ones to join me in Sept with a birthday.  Now I have someone to share my birth month with – we will have to have a joint party when they get older.   Becca and Gina both share March 3 with my mother and there are several other to share the month with them and now I have two to share my month with, feels good!!  Have a great day.

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
