A Full Quiver

3 Lo, children are a heritage of the LORD,
   and the fruit of the womb is His reward.

4 As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man,
   so are the children of the youth.

5 Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them;
   they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak
       with the enemies at the gate.

Psalm 127:3–5

I had to get this photo while it was still possible to lift them both with a single hand each!

Oddly enough, even though they're two years apart, both Fiona and Aiden weigh about the same — Deborah flatly denies this — something I attribute to Aiden eating just about everything you give him and asking for more, while Fiona has to be reminded to finish her food.

I certainly won't be able to do this with three. No, that's not an announcement.

I had assumed that quoting the "quiver full" passage meant the post was an announcement, until you specifically disclaimed it.
