The Twilight Twins (Update)

A few months ago, we heard from two proud parents whose last name is Hale, and whose twin children were named Jasper and Rosalie. Now that the famous twins are almost five months old, their dad has sent in an update on how they are doing!

It’s been a long time since you’ve heard from me last. Little Jazz and Rose aren’t newborns anymore. They’ll be five months old on September 15th. They’ve grown up a lot since you last heard from me. Rosie has pale blonde hair and blue eyes like her mother. But, although Jazz inherited the same hair color as his sister, he got my green eyes. Their personalities are becoming a lot more defined as well. Contrary to what many of you might think, Rose is a very calm and mellow baby. We set her down, and she’s perfectly content to just explore whats around her (or cram it in her mouth, as the case may be).
Jazz, on the other hand is a little attention-seeker. If Sam or I aren’t holding him(or he doesn’t see Rosalie nearby), he’ll cry his lungs out until he either falls asleep or one of us breaks down and picks him up.
There’s a lot to say about the bond between twins, even if they are fraternal, like hours. Jazz and Rose can’t bear to be put in seperate cribs for the night. They’ll just keep howling until they’re together again. When our normally calm little Rose starts crying like that, you know there’s something important she needs. Boy, will that change when they get older….
There have been a few health scares, though. Nothing major, it has pretty much just been colic and new-parent jitters. I do recall one particular day when Jazz started coughing, Sam panicked and demanded that we take him to the emergency room. Not wanting to rile her up any more than she already was, I gave in and drove her and Jazz to the hospital, after dropping Rose off at her grandmother’s. The diagnosis came back, and it was nothing more than a tiny cold. Of course, we had to keep him seperated from Rose until he recovered. So that gave us a few nights of incessant howling. You’d think they were named after wolves the way those two can cry when they put their minds to it.
But, other than the crying and diaper-changing, they are the best little munchkins a dad could wish for.
