They were 7 weeks early weighing only 4 lbs. 3 oz. (him) and 3 lbs. 5 oz. (her). Since I had pre-eclampsia, the doctor felt they would come early, so he had given me medicine to develop their lungs. It worked. They didn't need any breathing treatments or assistance. Due to their size, they were in the hospital for a while, 11 and 13 days. And boy did life change when they came home!
Like most parents, I've had many difficult, trying times, but I've had so many more that are filled with joy because of my twins. Happy birthday to my "babies." Yes, you'll always be my babies!
