My babies are turning 13 today! I officially have two teenagers! I could not be more proud of the funny, brave, strong, caring and sassy young ladies they are becoming. They are each other’s best friends and for that I am thankful every day! They still like hanging out with us too, which I’ll hold on to as long as I can!
Every year at their birthday I find myself reminiscing about my pregnancy, how much I loved it, and the day they were born. The girls were 5 weeks early and after 25 hours of labor and a c-section, our two little chicks were with us and it’s been a wild ride ever since! Weeks of them being in the NICU, health issues, not being able to hold them whenever we wanted to and having to leave our babies at the hospital and go home without them is by far the hardest experience I’ve ever had to go through but our little family is stronger and closer because of everything we’ve had to go through together.
Having twins is definitely a unique experience and one I am so thankful that we were blessed with. It’s had some very hard moments, especially when they were babies and Zach and I worked different shifts and had different days off, but watching the two of them together now, how close they are, and how much they love our family makes all of the hard stuff completely worth it. I am proud of the girls we are raising. They are my greatest accomplishment.
I am very much looking forward to celebrating them today (and all weekend) and celebrating the anniversary of me becoming their Mama. The biggest blessing in our life! 💕
