It's twins!

No, not for me (I think). Has anyone noticed how many people are having twins these days? Forget fertility drugs (which I'm all for), I just think it is starting to get a little creepy. (Sorry Kari - your twins will be perfect and not creepy, oh, and I love all the twins I know - even dated a twin once).

For example,
Lisa Marie Presley just announced that she is expecting twins. Angelina Jolie just gave birth to twins. JLo just had twins. Rebecca Romijn is expecting twins. And the list goes on and on: Marcia Cross (twin girls), Julia Roberts (boy & girl), Patrick Dempsey (twin boys), Mia Hamm (twin girls), P-Diddy (twin girls), Denzel Washington (boy & girl), Melissa Etheridge (boy & girl). Creepy? I think so, just a little. Pretty soon, to Jack's great delight, the world will be filled with twins and their "psychic connections." Just kidding, but it does make you wonder . . .

Still, the explanation that I've read in the news sounds plausible enough: (1) women are waiting to start families combined with the fact that women over the age of 35 are more likely to ovulate two eggs at one time - hence twins; and (2) increased fertilization drugs. Both reasons I fully support, so I guess I can't complain about the abundance of twins. Really, just an observation.

jack will probably say they don't have a psychic connection because most are fake or common twins according to him. and not real identical twins like J&T. i hope i have twins next with the help of some pharmaceuticals!

I’m dying to take baby pictures of a set of twins! Haven’t had that opportunity yet but reading your post makes me think with all these twins around my chances are getting better. Ha!
