They're TWO!!

Two years ago this morning, I arrived at the hospital around 4:30 am and found out, much to my chagrin, that you cannot actually get an epidural within minutes of walking in the door. Two years ago I pushed like crazy for more than an hour before finding out that it would be a c-section after all. I fought my teeth chattering for a couple of hours, until the epidural wore off and the morphine really kicked in. I stayed awake for over 40 hours, even after the girls were delivered and in the NICU, and I could have slept the day away, just from being wired.
And two years ago this evening, I actually got to meet my baby girls. The baby girls that I had waited my whole life for. And they're even better than I ever imagined.

Here are some pictures of them from today.

I check your blog daily. I can’t believe what personalities your girls already have and they are only 2! They are beautiful! Congrats on making it to year 2! I teared up a little when you wrote that they were the little girls you waited your whole life for…..I feel the same way every time I look at our boys!
