This time 3 years ago.....
(No, there was not a beach ball under my gown.....I was just that big!!)
I was big as a house and preparing for a c-section. It was one of the scariest days of my life since I was about to bring 2 precious little lives into this world. As I knew it would be, it ended up being one of the best days of my life. I had 2 healthy, perfect little boys.

I don't know that there is anything more overwhelming than holding 2 newborns and knowing they are your sole responsibility to care for!!
Joe and I are thinking to ourselves.....well we actually weren't really doing any thinking at all. We were just exhausted!!!! (I know I look fabulous in these pics and you can't even tell I'm tired or just gave birth to 2 babies....) Also to be noted, I am not 12 in these pics although it does look like it... :)
Now here we are 3 years later....
As hard as raising twins has been, I am so glad they have each other. They share a special bond that no one else can break!! They are so lucky to have each other and I hope they are best friends forever!
Wow, I honestly can't believe we have survived 3 years! It has been the best and most tiresome 3 years ever, but they are worth every bit!! They are amazing little boys and they light up our lives every day. I feel so blessed to have a wonderful, healthy and happy family!! Thank you God for entrusting these 2 little miracles to us!! Happy 3rd Birthday Luke and Cade!!
