Pink and More Pink

We are thrilled to say the least!! Our youngest daughter is expecting twins (she has one son age 2) We have known for some time they are identical (share a placenta) but only Tuesday did we discover they are GIRLS!!! Perfect and Due Sept 1!! DH and I have a 'six-pack' of grandchildren now - Five boys age 3 and 2 (one set of twin boys). Our Very First grand child is a Girl, now age 6 - so we wondered if the wave of boys would ever end. Fun and more fun on the way!! Ok this sketch looks a little alien, but hey in reality they are in their 5th month in vitro! (I tried to duplicate Janeys Journey technique which I love)

How exciting Sandy! And our #6 is also due on September 1st - another little boy for a total of 4boys and 2 girls. I love the painting. Are you going to sketch newborns like Laura?

Congratulations!! That really is wonderful and exciting news!! Best wishes for the Mom as well.

Your sketch is really precious! I guess you'll have lots of opportunities to sketch the little ones when they arrive.

Oh boy, tell your daughter good luck! I'm a twin and my brother is my only sibling for a reason. My mom still won't talk about the first six months of our lives. ;-) Honestly, I'm not sure she remembers. lol!


Looking forward to more baby portraits!
