Twin Picks of the Month - Part II: Zack's Required Bankruptcy Reading for July 2007

One thing is certain, no two fraternal twins are alike.  And Zachary Spencer, yanked out feet first at an equally healthy 6 lbs. 6 oz. five minutes after his brother Dave (and none too happy about having lost the territory seized from his escaping brother), is as unlike his brother Dave as are many of the famous twins on this list.  While Dave cried, Zack cooed.  While Dave gulped, Zack nibbled.  While Dave screamed his head off, Zack lay pensive, eyes wide open, fingers perched thoughtfully on his chin.  But both share this: they are miracles and blessings for which we are most grateful!

This final twin post of the day contains my "Picks of the Month" for July 2007, and is dedicated to my second newborn son, Zack, whose picture is also from about two weeks ago.  Thanks again to everyone for their double "mazel tovs"!
