Happy Birthday to my Babies!

Seventeen years ago I couldn't sleep. My twin babies were due in 2.5 weeks, but they'd quit moving. I was scared to death! At 5:00 a.m. we headed for the hospital. An ultrasound confirmed that they were okay (big relief!), just out of room. An ice storm was forecast, the doctor was going on vacation, and they were at a good, healthy size, so we were scheduled for a c-section! At 5:58 and 5:59 p.m., our babies were born on January 11, 1995. Having these twins has been the most amazing thing that has ever happened to me, and I wouldn't trade places with anyone in the world! I am so lucky to have these wonderful girls in my life, and I am so proud to call them my daughters! Love you forever, Kari and Kaitlyn!

Thanks for the birthday wishes! The girls had a lovely day, and I'm definitely not ready for them to be seventeen already! They are children number 4 & 5, so really ARE my babies! (Ashley is almost 26, Lukas almost 24, and Emily 20). I too used cloth diapers with the first three, but decided to bag it with twins! :) I'd have never made it through without the help of my husband and our oldest, Ashley, was such a big help! Helping to raise her baby sisters is one reason she is a teacher today!
