My Dear Twinnies

I would love to have seen my face that day in the ultrasound room when your dad jumped up, pointed at the screen and yelled, “I KNEW IT!!!” Oh great, I thought, my baby has two heads. “IT’S TWINS, ISN’T IT?!?” I think at that point I about fell off the bed. It’s WHAT?

As it turns out, there were two heads. I had you two, both perfectly healthy babies, hanging out in my tummy together. Baby A was my sweet little girl and Baby B was my adorable little boy. Sugar and spice, slime and snails. Wow, a two-for-one deal. I definitely wasn’t expecting that.  

It seems like just last month that you joined our family. In actuality, it has been years. Six to be exact. Six years ago today you entered our world and improved our lives in ways we never thought possible. Where does the time go? How can it possibly go by so fast? Are you really old enough to be in Kindergarten already?

You are so similar and yet so different. You are connected and yet individuals. You are both perfect with your bright eyes and big hearts and amazing personalities. I cannot begin to tell you how much we love you or how lucky we are to have you both in our lives. And yet, I feel as though there should be something I can say that will help you understand.

I think perhaps the best thing to say is… Thank You. For bringing such joy to our lives. For making us laugh. For reminding us what is important in life. For forgiving our faults. For simply being you.

Today and always, I wish you all the happiness in the world. You truly deserve it my lovelies, my angels, my twinnies.

Happy Birthday!!! Love you to pieces 🙂
