Twin boys!!

With the country gearing up for the Battle of the Metn, Brigitte and I have other priorities. On Friday, she delivered from healthy twin boys!!!!! Please welcome Marc Assad and Andrew Rik Charbel to this world!!! Mom and kids are fine and we expect to leave the hospital early next week.

Although they're not identical, they sure look similar. See pics below:

Congrats Riemer, wonderful news.

PS I did not know "Assad" was also a Dutch name. ;)

Beste Riemer,

Van ganser harte gefeliciteerd met de geboorte van de tweeling! Geweldig leuk voor je echtgenote, je dochter en jouzelf!
Jullie huishouden zal nu ineens extra levendig en het dagelijkse leven vol met kinderen zijn.
Geniet er van!
Uiteraard hoop ik op een onverminderde voortzetting van je verslagen over het wel en wee in Libanon.

Hartelijke groeten, Wim Boelens Den Haag NL

Congratulations to you and Brigitte, Riemer.

Having twins must be a lot of work. You might be blogging less in the next couple of months.
