14 Years Ago Today...

My miracle happened... My twins were born, a boy and a girl, small, but healthy. He came first at 6:37 PM. She followed 8 minutes later after several unsuccessful attempts at turning her. No C-section for me. I think it would have been easier in many ways, but there are no do-overs.

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!

Congrats on the birthday of your twins! Time goes so fast...my daughter is 11 and it's hard to believe. Having two 14 year olds must be a challenge but I'm sure it's fabulous too!

A belated Happy Birthday to the twins, and congrats on the "anniversary" to you. My "baby" was born at the same time of year (June 23) and I've always loved having a big birthday do at the opposite end of the year from the holidays. I hope you all enjoyed this birthday and that it was just the start to a wonderful summer. And BTW - have lots of fun with the teen years (from one who's been there)!
