J&T

Those of you who received our Christmas card may wonder what or who J&T stood for in our signature line.

Here's your first glimpse of J&T -

Actually, these are all of T. J was head down and not cooperating for his photo op. We joked since they're identical twins, we've essentially seen both their faces anyway.
and J&T stands for - Jacob and Thomas.

Jacob will be known as Jack. Mike and I have always loved the name Jack. Thomas will be called Tommy. Jack & Tommy. I had suggested Jack and Bobby, but Mike nixed that immediately.

The meaning behind the names. As you know (or not), our sons have had biblical names. Matthew was our first born and now we have Luke. We wanted to continue the tradition so we chose Jacob, who was a twin born holding his brother's heel. Thomas was one of the apostles and means 'twin' in Greek.

So there you have it, Jack and Tommy. Coming soon!

How awesome! When i got your Christmas card, I was actually on the phone with Terri at the time and said, " I wonder if the names will be jake and Thomas"! I was really close!
i remember when we chose Thomas for Will's middle name that i thought it was really cool that it meant "twin".
i am sure these babies are going to be absolutely handsome! can't wait to see them!!!!

OKay I may sound a little weird but I think the middle picture looks a little like Luke. Can't wait to meet the little buggers!

Wonderful names. Hilariously enough, when I first saw the initials I had tried to guess what they stood for just based on the names of your other children- and I guessed correctly! I love the names and the ultrasound pics are really cool! Can't wait to see newborn pics!
love,
angela

Congratulations! I fought with my DH to name one of twin boys Thomas but he wouldn't agree to it. My oldest son is Matthew and we also used Biblical names.

Brandi said...

Wow...I never knew that Thomas meant twin! The boys are sure to be just as handsome as Luke is! I say the same thing about the C's. When you have seen one you have seen them both..even though that is so not true now.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. so hope all is well! Love, Liz M
