“What’s funny is Kaius looked so much like our first daughter Aubyn when he came out,” said Alanna, remembering the daughter they lost. She felt like it was a sign. “One of the community midwives said to me that in having twins we were somehow getting her back to us and the boys were bringing our family together.” Paul was more than happy to have twin boys.

“It's always great for any lad to have a boy. We all know boys can get into a bit of trouble but we'll keep them busy - a lot of sports will do them good," said Paul. “We have a lovely little daughter and now that we have boys, it's a complete package."

A week after having the twins, Paul and Alanna were able to bring them home. “They lost a little of their body weight over the first couple of days, which is normal, but they are doing really well,” said Alanna. “They are quite chilled out and they love a cuddle.” Luckily, Alanna had the right idea when she decided not to buy any clothes.

“They don't really fit into newborn clothes," said Alanna. “They have quite big feet and big hands." Other than running into logistical challenges with having such large twins, Alanna was completely happy with how healthy they were. But it was time to find out if the twins were record breakers.

“I was trying to find out if they are the heaviest,” said Alanna in an interview. “The records office is researching this for us and should be able to confirm it, either way, this week.” Even if they do not break any records, the Merrie twins are definitely special.
