    Mazaltov!! What a wonderful Hannukah gift you've received. Both my daughters were born on Hannukah (3 yrs apart) and it's a wonderful way to celebrate each year. Hope everyone is feeling well and adjusting.

    As for the feelings: the euphoria slowly subsides but the joy never goes away as every day brings something new that makes you enjoy them even more - even if you thought that wasn't possible.

    Meilleurs voeux de sante et bonheur pour les nouveaux venus dans la famille G.

    Wow - what a ride! ... and it's only the start of it all.

    Another question for seasoned fathers out there: does this feeling of joy ever go away?

    Congrats!

    Another piece of advice (from a son) is to really be their friend from the get go, rather than just the head of the household/provider that commands/demands respect. This kinda goes along with someone else's suggestion of being involved in all their activities.

    Thanks all - I'll pass the welcome words to the boys. [​IMG]

    EL - no they're not and they actually don't look much alike IRL. For the moment, Leo looks more asian and Sam looks more caucasian. - but their faces seem to change a little every day.
