What a difference a year makes. Twins in 2012. New ones below the jump.
Today is the second birthday for the Miracle Twins, Vincent and Josephine. Two years since their birth. Two years since their mother in clown makeup and their father in a depression beard and mein took them home. Two and a half years since their father nearly lost his lease on life. The bubs share a birthday with Elvis, David Bowie and Stephen Hawking, but will they share an ounce of their charisma, musicality or intelligence? Time will tell. For now, they are cute little munchkins.
Princent seems to be both all boy and all Fred at the same time, as much as a contradiction as that seems to be. Josie is all Mary in looks, yet seemingly with a sweet disposition, original facial features and a normal weight.
Mary photographed them at home in an attempt at solidifying her position as a 'royal photographer' in anticipation of the exhibition of photos of The Dark Poors in Copenhagen (proceeds to The Mary Fund). Hell, even Prince Andrew did better photography work than this! The quality of the photos aren't too bad this time - compare with Xian and Izzy's outdoors photies that compete with the sun - but neither child seems able to look at their mother. How can she get that close up in their faces and not have them focus on her? Very telling that they've already learned by age two that eye contact with Mary is a dangerous thing. They also probably don't identify with Madam La Boganne as a mother, but as the strange, mannish photographer who swans around them occasionally. The comely, busty blonde pieces who pick daddy up off the floor, nurse him and sleep in his wing of the house are most likely the women who share the title 'Mor', not MoreMore.
Princent looks a little like Pavlos and Marie Chantal's boys with his longer blond hair (though cuter - those Greek children were not exactly pretty very young). A nod by Mary to them, or the celebrity trend to have little boys look like little girls until they're old enough to want a change? Poor Josie seems to struggle with hair growth, trending toward grampy Papa 'Half-Mast' Slurppppppppppppson's thinning pate. However, she still managed to channel some of Mary's boo-boo-pi-doo, Mae West, showgirl posing. We wish you kids well, you're going to need lots of love and attention. Let's hope your Far and the nannies are giving it to you! Watch out for your weird Aussie rellos and try to spend extra time with your lovely Schackenborg cousins.
