Welcome Max and William!

Congratulations to John, LibraryThing’s systems administrator, and his wife Lou on their new twins, Max and William!

More photos here.

That both were boys is a surprise—the doctors had believed only one was a boy. (William was going to be Willow.) Together with Baz (5) and Ollie (3), John and Lou now have a four-boy family, and more opportunities for John to perfect his Spiderman cake!

There’s a best-wishes thread going here.

John’s twins are the first of four LibraryThing births coming up in the months ahead—Mike, Sonya and Chris Catalfo are next! They will join three, now five, other LibraryThing babies. There is clearly something in the water.

    good job! for one thing, the world needs more Williams (Maxes are good too)…

    but don't you dare straighten their hair! (that's some weird spam comment just above from 'bushwor;da' — it excited my spyware detector…)
