On Wednesday my wife and I welcomed our first kids into the world, twin daughters Caitlyn Anne and Makaela Marie tipping the scales at 5lbs 13oz and 5lbs 14oz's. We are very glad both are happy and healthy especially after 17 long weeks of partial bedrest for my wife and her putting up with me being in the field for 16 days between deer and elk seasons. I can't wait until the day they will hopefully want to join me in the mountains. We are still getting used to the new level of sleep deprivation and I am begging to wonder if I might be looking to the back country for some rest this season.

It's inspiring to see the other memeber's out on successful hunts with their daughters, hopefully I will be there someday.

Just thought I would share with my Rokslide family. John

Congrats mate! I have four little ones with the oldest being a daughter who strives to keep my three boys in line. They're a ton of fun, and I hope to take my daughter on her first big game hunt in 2013. Good work!

Congrats that's awesome, having lived through two sets of twins the first year is definitely HARD but it will get easier.

Congratulations ! Not only can you forget about sleep but you will not even be able to remember what life was like before kids. You will have some vague memory that you used to have a life before kids but it will be like recalling an old movie. Mine is 18 and graduating high school so I can tell you it will go by in the blink of an eye. Savor every moment because it will begone before you know it.

Congrats to you and your wife!! I know how taxing bed rest is and the anxiety the goes with it. My wife endured 90 days of total bed rest with our first son Alexander. A big "WELL DONE" goes out to your wife!

Congratulations and great to hear that everyone is doing well. I didn't have much gray hair before my daughter was born but I don't know if that is coincidental or causal. They will keep you busy and they grow up fast.
