Second set of identical twins for Wisconsin couple

November 5, 2013 by  

Menomonee Falls residents Melissa and Mike Kreuser welcomed their third and fourth child into the world recently.

Identical twin boys Michael and Gabriel were born on September 20th early in the morning, weighing in at six and a half pounds and just over seven pounds. The boys arrived early by caesarean section and were healthy. Amazingly, this is not the first set of identical twins for the parents, whose daughters Delilah and Linea were born three years ago.

Michael and Gabriel were the two names Melissa and Mike picked out when they were awaiting the birth of their first set of twins but did not yet know the sex of the babies. Melissa told Menomonee Falls Now that, when she discovered she was once again carrying twins, her mind raced with questions about such matters as looking after four children.

Mike, meanwhile, said he was more excited than nervous when he discovered the news. Having recently been laid off from works, admits that some good has come of this as it has allowed him to support his wife and make the most of his time with the new twins in their first few weeks.

A popular idea with twin children is to have two separate birthday parties, which often means that their parents require twice as many birthday invitations. A company that prints invitations and can work on a personal level with a family could be hired for both sets of twins in such circumstances.
