Story behind the picture
Twins are talking!
Today I have just been reminiscing about the twins, listening to them babble away. Just two years ago today, we began a crazy ride! We found out we were pregnant! A surprise to say the least. We thought we were done, 3 kids was enough we thought. But after getting over the surprise of being pregnant, we were in for an even bigger shock, we were having twins! We didn't have much time to let that information sink in though. We found out that Baby A was not growing. They said he wouldn't make it. I went in every week for an ultra sound, just bracing myself for the day that they would tell me he had passed away. But a miracle happened to our family. He started growing again. He was always several weeks behind Baby B, and up until my C section they told me to prepare myself that he would be born stillborn. Born on Sept. 15, 2008 weighing just 3 pounds, 3 ounces, we seen our lovely baby come in to this world. Here we are, 2 years later, all of us here and healthy! Including my trooper Baby A...or as we lovingly call him, shoeshine.
