I have an accent?

It's so funny. I don't hear it. It's funny for me to post my voice in the videos w/ Gage, and so many of you comment on our Southern accents.

....Moving topic:

TWO BABIES! Wooooohoooo!
Gin's blog:
Ginger has been a friend of mine since I was....10 years old.
We grew up together. Our parents were friends. Our grandparents were friends. She just has a great family, and I am sooooooooo sure that her parents are soooooo excited!

So....I have a friend, Jessica, w/ identical twin daughters, Shiloh & Abigail.
I have a friend, Jolene, w/ fraternal twin daughters, Lola & Maggie.
I have a friend, Joan, w/ twin daughters, Caitlin & Emily. (I don't know if they are identical or fraternal...I tend to believe identical...b/c to me, they look EXACTLY alike, but, that doesn't necessarily mean anything I of them wears glasses, the other does not.)
I have a cousin w/ twins: Mallory & Morgan.
I have a cousin w/ triplets too!: Kevin, Kyle, & Heidi.
And now, Ginger's having twins...

I'm just soooooooo excited for them!

Hmm I am not good with accents but I detect...nothing. *Sob*

I've been told I have an accent too. I was doing a voice recognition project for my husband's company and I was told not to have a Maine accent when I said the words. Honestly, I didn't even know I had one!!!!

I can't listen to your voice here at work - but I can tell you that I definitely have a STRONG southern accent. When I used to work in coporate PR, I had to call NYC often. The first thing they always asked me was: Are you from Texas???

I was pretty good at disguising it at times. But now that I work at a nonprofit in my hometown - the accent has come back fullforce! :)

Congrats to your friend on her twins. I know this is an exciting time for them!

You totally have an accent. I can even hear it when you type the word "Twins!"

I get the whole southern accent thing, too. I'm over-aware of mine and there are words that I absolutely refuse to say -- eau de toilette, for example. You would be surprised how many times I have been in a position to say this word, and I can't even wear perfume!

I have an accent too but I tend to turn it on and off depending upon who I'm around. Or at least I think I do. It may sound just as bad and I don't know it!

And yay for twins! I think those might be fun if you were a first time parent and didn't know any better. Imagine how easy the next time would be! Only one diaper at a time!! :)

Geez, you have a lot of friends with twins!!

I didn't hear it at first, but I went back and listened, and yeah, you have that slight East Texas twang going on in there...I know it, I used to speak it, and my parents still do! Tee hee!

hmm I would jsut start rubbing up against all of them... and when they look at you like you are a freak reply "WHAT? Its my turn for twins!"

I think your voice is adorable. I wonder if I have an accent. I know I don't have the thick Cajun accent like my cousins.

I have a friend who has fraternal twin daughters- Grace & Emma. My cousin and his wife just found out they are having twins, too. I think it's adorable but, I don't want to do it myself!

Congratulations to GInger!!

Wow...we have been friends for 20 years this year! That is awesome! Thanks for all the well-wishes. We are so excited to be having two babies. I love them so much. We have the ultrasound framed and on the mantel over the fireplace. If you want twins you should come visit me during labor. Carole and I think that me being in the labor room on Christmas Day when she was having Miriam made my body ovulate later that week! Maybe it would make you shoot out two eggs! :)

Congrats to Ginger....and that's a lot of multiples in your circle of friends/family! Wow!

Heidi :)

Gin---I don't know that I could handle twins ever.
I think God somehow weeds out the weak, and gives multiples to those who have the strength to actually do it!

You can toss me in the pile w/ the weak. Because--while I think they are cute---I would be OUT OF MY MIND terrified!

Yes, you have an accent and it's charming.
That is so weird that you know so many people with twins. I only know one family.

At 2:41 PM , Blogger Stacie said...

congrats and that is a lot of twins that you know. :)

I hear the accent, but I have one too, so I like it!

Twins would be so much fun!
