our twins

Hey everyone. It's me, JJWT.

I guess it's been a while since I've written on this thing huh? Thanks everyone for reading my wife's blog. I seriously hear about it all the time and how much she loves her e-BFFs. I don't really get it, but cool.

We went to the mall today to take a look at the twins and their parts. We were pretty pumped so we couldn't wait for the doctor. It rocked. So crazy I'm gonna be a DAD. CRAZY. The lady hooked TAMN up and we took a look at our twins. I cracked up so hard bc they looked like Gremlins, but TAMN got so mad when I said that. Anyway, one of them wouldn't open its legs so I guess it'll be a suprise. But the other one, we saw loud and clear.........






it's a ......









boy.


Booyah!

So pumped to have a SON, everyone! Holy crap, that stud can't get here soon enough. I was freaking pumped and high-fived the tech and fistbumped everyone working there. TAMNbabe though, not so much. She screamed "Nooooooo!" like she was a wicked witch melting or something and fell to the ground. Seriously, mascara was all over the place. It was definitely awkward. She asked the tech lady if she was sure and the chick said "Oh yeah, he's ALL BOY," and circled his package. TAMN flipped out. The good news is she was fumin' so bad she didn't even notice or guilt trip me when I picked up Madden 09 in the mall on our way back to the car. Double booyah!

Anyway, I'm stoked. The whole way home TAMN was muttering about wasted bows, how no one will ever say she and our twins could be triplets, blessing dresses patterned after TAMN's wedding dress that'll go to waste, weddings she'll never get to plan, and all of that. The other one could totally be a chick for all we know, but I guess my babe needs time. And a buttload of frozen yogurt. TAMN's in bed hidding under the covers so that's why I'm writing this. I'm going to go pick our son up a hunting rifle and his own Wii controller now, but isn't this awesome?

Take it easy everyone!

Just so long as you include chocolate with the buttload of frozen yogurt, she'll be fine.

Kim said...

Love boys!

clan of the cave hair said...

seriously, i am absolutely certain you blog-stalk somebody I know very well for this material. Its as if you copy and paste her posts.

Amber said...

YEE-HAW!! Boys RULE! I have a 6 mo & he's the SHIZ! Congrats JJWT! TAMN...don't worry! Boys are so dang cool!

JorgenMan said...

Booyah! TAMN needs to hang out with you, though, so the little dude can be ready to play Madden when he comes out.

MidCityGal said...

Most new mommies are so proud of showing of their little fetal boy parts on the internet-- you're 'defiantly' going to show us the ultrasound pix, right? And then you have to make some comment about how his 'package' was so big on the ultrasound that they surely couldn't be wrong.

Not that I'm weirded about by that mom-of-son blogging phenomenon, though. Not at all.

Shelly! said...

You just need to remind TAMN that real men can wear pink. She'll cheer right on up.

April said...

OMG...I can't believe she's having a boy. Laaaammmmmeee. Boys are sooo not fun. I totally hope the other ones a girl cuz seriously that would be sad if it wasn't.

The Boob Nazi said...

I'm so excited to hear from you JJWT!
But why did TAMN enable comment moderation? That totally reduces the amount of comments she's going to get in case she accidentally deletes them!!! Because she's just not that techno savvy.... I mean, we all know that. It's too geeky to be good at computers and all that stuff.

Cheri said...

JJWT, you should totally post more often. Great to hear from you! We missed you on here. And guess what? The longer TAMN'd hiding, the more nag-free Madden time you get. TRIPLE BOOYAH.

Jenn said...

Yay for you and your little man. I'm so sure that the other one will be a girl for TAMN. No worries.

But I know TAMN is totally stressing so make sure you get her the new Red Mango Fro-yo....POMEGRANATE. (Starting tomorrow!)

J-Dub said...

Word JJWT! You should go buy a couple quads with a car seat to take that boy mud bogging.

(jumping chest bump & good game)

michellejohnnie said...

She can still put bows on your little guy and Take pictures for his wedding and dates to see. Blackmail/bribery for later Nothing wrong with that!!!

Jeanne said...

TAMN, boys rock because then you will always be the prettiest!

Abbie said...

You can still do blue bows. And people will know he's a boy. Cause of the blue.

abbybrossette said...

Think of the opportunity to be the BESTEST Missionary Mom!

Jessie said...

And she JUST bought all those gi-effing-normous-bigger-than-the-baby's-head gerbera daisy headbands! I'll pray that the other one is a girl so that at least ONE of your babies can look completely absurd!!!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

I get her...you have visions of pink tutus and big fluff in her hair as sugar plums dance in your head...

but a boy...Congrats!

Kari said...

You KNOW the other one is a GIRL because of how modest she is by keeping her legs together!!! A Stud and a PRINCESS in one batch! YOu guys are seriously so blessed!

Holly said...

Simply a tragidy. I'm sorry JJWT, but you seriously need to take better control over your chromazones. How could you?!!

stephanie said...

So fun! Do you have any names picked out? I think Madden would be a great name and its practically after JJWT, since he loves the game so much

Heidi Ashworth said...

This is serious stuff. Boys are nice and all but they pass gas and wipe their hands on their shirt and jump all over the furniture. And they definitely do not look good in headbands covered with huge gerbera daisies (esp. pink ones). They, are, however, a little easier then girls when they get into their teens. Not such drama queens and they don't argue with you when you ask them to pick up their socks (doesn't meant they will do it, but still). So, there's always that. . .

Token Asian Friend said...

Dude, JJWT! Congrats, man! Way to do it to it!

But, SNAP! The other tike wouldn't open its legs, huh? It must have known it wasn't wearing a MODEST BIKINI!!! It's gunna be a girl, bro.

Madden '09? Send my man an invite!

(that's the best dude impersonation I could do. way to go, writer! Writing in "jock" is hard!!!)

ukyankoz said...

I'm so sorry, JWWT, make sure you tell TAMNers we are all sending good thoughts and visualizing a girl as the other twin! And even if (fingers crossed and visualizing it doesn't happen) the other one is a boy, all babies look the same, so she can still dress them up in bows and tutus for a little while, right?

momodafoxes4 said...

You can always go back in a couple weeks and see if yur 'modest' twinner will do a reveel!! i am sure it's a girl!! i'm only having one fetus, and it's a girl! There are a lot of little girls arriving on the planet soon! i am sure you and your seriously so blessed wife will get one of them!!

Mishqueen said...

Yo yo dude, JJWT, you know man you know that the MAN determines the chromasomes whether the baby will be a girlie-girl or a MANCHILD so all I gotta say is--way to assert your patriarchal ruling class! Word!

Bradley, DeAnna, and Donovan said...

Wow, I think I have lost a little faith in TAMN's righteousness. Maybe you guys need to start paying 12% tithing so the other baby will be a girl.

Lewis Fam said...

we're just praying the other one's not a hermie, ya know...ick. but just think tamn, when your boy grows up he'll bring his friends over and they are gonna think you are the HOTTEST sister EVER.

my stay-at-home-momma drama said...

WTH, a boy???? Seriously, so NOT blessed. Hello?

TAMN, you must be so bummed. I'm going to fast tomorrow, partly because I'm so bloated from eating carbs today but mostly for YOU dear TAMNers. (I'm so unselfish like that.)

Amy said...

JJWT, so glad you're the man you are or else you might seriously get eaten alive by all the passive aggression.

See, I can talk bc I seriously cried at my ultrasound when I found out it was a boy. But I got over it. And my hunk is the darling of the ward. SO HOT. I've already had to beat the toddling felines away with a stick. Tell TAMN that boys really do have their perks.

LDS Fashion Girl said...

A BOY. That is frikin' awesome. You should totally grow his hair long so he can be like all the celebu-spawn that are way trendy totally awesome.

Kritta22 said...

Love it! Names picked out yet?!

Bella said...

hang in there jjwt! and enjoy the madden 09 while you can!!!!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Is Madden O9 out already? BOOYAH! Now I've got Christmas all wrapped up.

Loved the wasted bows! hee hee Nice touch, Tamn. I mean, JJWT.

Libby said...

Hey, JJWT, while you're posting...I have a question for you. When you and the other LDS med/dental/law students go play basketball at the church on Wednesday nights, do you play shirts/skins or do you all bring TWO t-shirts (one light, one dark) b/c you're so righteous? Just wondering.

(This post is terrific, BTW!)

Whitney R said...

I want a boy. WANT ONE! Well.... I'd take two, or even a girl. Basically a baby. Yeah... that'd be nice.

Michele said...

Well, now I'm sure ur other fetus is a gurl cuz she was way modester than ur boy. Everyone knows how guyz are all obsessed with their package and grabbing it all the time, like they're checking to make sure it's still there. Everyone knows gurlz are way more modester that guyz. She was prolly m-barassed cuz she didn't have anything on and didn't want to show her bidness with a guy in the room. U should totally go back without JJWT and make sure no guyz are in the room, and I bet u will get a good look then.

Annie Valentine said...

TAMN - He's such a totally insensitive brute, doesn't he know that boy's don't call their mama's after they turn 18 but girls call EVERY FREAKING DAY??? Who will you talk to? So sad for you!!:(

If my number three had been a boy (she wasn't and is PURFECT), I would have sent him right down the hall to the adoption agency and tried again, for sure!

Willis Family said...

What...you didn't also pick up the new Call of Duty. That's what my hubby is playing right now.

Rach said...

Wow! His own hunting rifle AND his own wii controller?? Oh man. That little stud. Congrats, JJWT and condolences, TAMN!

The Gunderson's said...

I'll admit...
Girl's definitely have WAY cuter clothes.
I mean, pint sized Uggs? Holy freak. My baby girl has them and it's all about Clicks. She's a totally "in" girl. And she's only ONE! I know. Way popular, but I hope the Other is a girl so TAMN can be in the click with us.

Token Asian Friend said...

So, did the babies look healthy?

~*~*~Britni~*~*~ said...

BAAAAAA!!!! TAMN, your havin a stud!!!!!!! Can we start guessing on names? You should def give him a prophet name like McKay or Hinckley or Lund. That'll make him DOUBLE likely to be an AP when he's on his mish.

Oh and BTW, I'm totally gonna fast n' pray for your other fetus to be a princess. Just have faith, girlie!

Mina said...

JJWT, you are, like, the best husband EVER for posting for TAMN while she's, um, indisposed. I'm totally lusting after you right now!

Katie said...

TAMN, TOTALLY think U need 2 C the DTD, stat... Those mall things aren't 100% acurate. Maybe it was a finger they saw and it really is two girlz?

CutieFruity/TaylorFam said...

I felt the same way when I saw those little boy parts, TAMN! I already have 2 girls, but who doesn't want more, huh? People keep trying to tell me all the things boys are good for...yeah, I'm not buying any of that. good luck with baby B!

The Petersons said...

Oh how sad. I'm so glad I'm already super blessed with my angel girl. Boys are so obnoxious. Maybe if you pray really hard the other one will be a girl. If I were you I would fast about it this weekend..

Oh, I mean congrats!

Wendyburd1 said...

She could SO be a girl. COngrats!! It's so cool to see a guy SO happy to be a Dad!!LOL

Bebe said...

When my daughter found out that all three of our triplets were boys, she refused to speak to me for 2 weeks! Her brother thought it was awesome, she was furious. She's just now realizing that she is the only (and therefore very spoiled) princess in the family. Maybe TAMN can look forward to being the beloved princess. Congrats!

ABCD Clapp said...

Lovin's my life with my boys! No joke way better than I ever thought, and I was open to anything that motherhood could offer especially the girl stuff! But they are my awesome life and I am still the queen of the house, so in a way that is great too!
Good luck, and enjoy the fro-yo.... Mavericks was my fave when i was prego.

myimaginaryblog said...

I'm sure TAMN was just crying from emotion because she was so overjoyed. I'm sure she'll tell us all about it as soon as she finishes that long prayer of gratitude.

Amber said...

K, I know I've already been here but I was one of the first (yay me!) so now I have to comment on the comments, right?

First: "abbie" that's hilarious.

Second: "token asian friend" everyone knows the MOST important thing is GENDER...not health. Thanks buzz kill.

Last: "bebe" One word for you...TRIPLETS?????

Marivic_Little GrumpyAngel said...

TAMN, I have a boy and girl. Love them both equally, but here's the scoop. Boy=adorable and easy. Girls=adorable but high maintenance. There'll be days you'll want to rip the cute bows off their pretty little heads. So put your big girl panties on and quit with the tantrum.

Amalie said...

my favorite part of this post is now no one will say that she and the twins could pass for triplets...haha!!!

BYU Athletic Supporter said...

I hope you will gel his hair spikey and teach him how to be a stud of an athlete so he can get a full-ride to the Y!

Barton Family said...

So sad.

michellejohnnie said...

I totally feel a new army of Helaman/STripling Warriors coming on! How exciting! TAMN will be the "Mother" the scriptures talk about!!!! And think about those manly warrior Halloween costumes she can dress them in! SaWeet!!!!

Kiersten said...

Oh, NO! This is TERRIBLE.

But I guess it's okay, because when he's a teenager his friends can come over and you'll be the HOT MAMA that they all have secret crushes on.

Mary said...

Madden?? I can't believe you didn't pick up End War...totally got rated great!

Aubrey said...

I just found your blog. I have twin boys that are 2 1/2 and I have to tell you. THEY ARE SO MUCH FUN!!! Little boys love their mommies. :)

Aubrey said...

BTW. Two of my cousins were having a discussion. One said that real men have boys first, and the other said real men have them 2 at a time (he had twin girls) so when we found out it was twin boys, they looked at my husband and said; "Wow, you are a REAL man."

Sadie, Corey and Cailyn said...

I have to say, I'm happy at least one of you can spell! That will give your kids a total edge in life! Boys are wonderful! I don't have any but I want one! Plus, not knowing the gender of the baby #2 makes things so exciting!!!

kits54 said...

Sweet! A Wii controller for the wee one... good luck/have fun (from the mother of 6 boys).

Kayleigh said...

Oh, boys are so great, TAMN! And just think, if the other one is a girl, then you can double up the girl love slash girl stuff on her.

megan said...

FISTBUMPED! JJWT, I think you have a brother in my singles ward. Hahaha! Fistbump. That is rich.

Melanie said...

"... how no one will ever say she and our twins could be triplets..."
You are hilarious.

Ashley Ann said...

So here is what you can do to make your boy not such a total let down TAMNers: still dress him totally cool, with like skulls on the onsies and beenies that make him look all skatery. Then when he gets hair, you can spike it with gel. And you can get a super awesome diaper bag that is kind of punk...so it will be ok because your boy will be the "cool boy".

And don't be sad because you know that your family all made a deal in the pre-exsistense to come to earth together. So, this was really meant to be. You wouldn't want him to be like that girl in the wheelchair on Saturday's Warrior, where she almost didn't get to come to earth. You and this kid were probably BFF's in heaven.

BTW- LOVED THIS POST!

Benson & Sarah Garner said...

WAY SAD! Poor TAMNERS - you need some Anthro STAT.
And look at the bright side... if one's a girl and one's a boy you can totally name them
Brad & Angelina - WAY cute.

The Petterssons said...

TAMN don't worry...by having a boy you can still be the star of the show. Maybe twinner B will be a girl.

Trent!? said...

I love this blog.

Howertons in Iowa said...

My hubby would've done the same thing with Madden - so I'd say you're right on track. Tamn will come around and soon get excited that the little guy is going to turn out to be as great as you are. Then she'll know that someday he'll make another righteous girl as happy as you've made her!! just twist everything to be a positive and she'll be all right. And she might need some extra shopping money for the super cute boy clothes at her fav boutique!

Danielle said...

Poor TAMN....she is so sweet and humble, she doesn't even realize what having a boy means. Heavenly Father knows how amazing you and TAMN are and he is sending a future apostle or maybe prophet to your home. Who else in this generation is better prepared to be a proph's mommy than our dear TAMN?

shel7by said...

Money! Strong work, dude.

JJWT - I think of you every time i watch "Kath & Kim".

Asian said...

Tamn,
I've been working ever since I heard the good news, and I just finished quilting a CTR quilt for you little guy with mission related scriptures embroidered in gold thread.

So, tell me where to send it, K?

Amy said...

You know, it's only fair, that you as the patriarch of your sweet little family should decide/determine the gender of your twins. Way to keep the gospel true!

liz stanley said...

TAHM! So super duper sad for you! I just KNOW you'll be blessed and the other one will be a girl!

Corinne said...

EEEW TAMN! Are you STILL bawling? Your email isn't working. Did you turn it off so you could have a cry fest all weekend???
You have got to stop or yur going to get cry lines! And those are way ugly plus they don't look rightuus b/c they make you look like yur not blessed enuf to be happy all the time slash don't have a good marriage.
Stop crying and fix your email so we can have a ril convo.

Kari said...

Nooooooooooo!!!! :(
[buh-ALL-ing my eyes out and ruining my perfect tArAnTuLa eyes mascara]

I am SERIOUSLY pRaYiNg my little heart out that the other twinner was just SO cute and GiRly that she had to cross her legs like a proper LADY!

I mean, it's bad enough that one of them is a boy....eWWWW...no GiNoRmOuS pink bows/no writing her name in UH-dor-able cursive with hearts over the i's/no re-living your glory days as CHEERcaptin-homecomingQUEEN-olympicGYMnast ViCaRiOuSlY through her!

TAMNers, I know you're probably lounging out on your QUEENsize bed watching THE NOTEBOOK and eating double-chocolate but todally fat-free (not that it matters cause you're still a 00)ice cream, but just know that you are todally JUSTIFIED!

{{hugs}}

Diane said...

Oh TAMN, as a mother of only boys I feel your pain! There is still hope for the other baby though. It's a good thing JJWT will make a lot of money so you can afford to hire someone to clean your toilets because boys don't know how to aim very well.

Karina & John Calderwood said...

So sad to hear the news. We will be praying that the other one is a a girl! Hang in there TAMN.

Karen said...

JJWT: "she and the twins could be triplets"...this is blog-brilliance

Jessie: "gi-effing-normous-bigger-than-the-baby's-head gerbera daisy headbands"...hahahahahha and amen.

LDS fashion girl: "celebu-spawn" made me laugh til a tear leaked out.

Annie Atkin Rasmussen said...

Have you guys thought about paying tithing? I mean, maybe it's time to CTR.

Diane said...

TAMN, I forgot to add the bestest part of having boys! In a little over 8 years your boy or boys will be cub scouts! So much fun, totally! You would make the hottest den mom, I just know it! The scout shirt uniform thingy is so cute! You would rock it, you would be the hottest scout mom leader at pack meeting,frills! I'm so happy for you! It's like totally your destiny!

Krazy Keetch's said...

Uh-I don't get it? What is this??

Aunty Em said...

TAMN - I have girl/boy twins - they are the BEST! There is still hope.

If they both end up being dudes, then you've got future mission companions. It's all good.

The Bradley's said...

TAMN - I'm starting to worry about you sweetie. When are you going to come out of mourning? I mean, JJWT is great but we need to hear from you! Also, when are you going to the mall again? Maybe your mini-Molly will get scandalous and open her legs a bit so you can find out she's a girl. (I'm sure it's true because I KNOW you've been CTRing.) Good luck!

Kathleen said...

Just think having a boy as a service project. In like 21 years he will be a return mishunary, and then he will marry a girl who is just like you, and it's like you did service for her by making her hubby in your fertile womb garden. You are so richus to do that much service!!

Jason and Dana said...

How SAD! And to think, your perfect SAHP life would have been that much more perfect.
If you want to give me all your girly bows cause they're too painful a reminder...I would do that for you.

Heather said...

So I am a recent follower of your blog, but I speak with experience in the Mormon Mom Blogger of Twin Boys Department! Seriously, I too was BUMMED to find out that I was carrying two more boys, as I already had two boys. Buying for & dressing twins has to be more fun than buying for & dressing a girly girl! I get a kick out of dressing the my identical twin boys all matchy matchy. You will get over it, and who knows you could still be carrying girly girl!
