Three Years

How is this possible?

How can two 3 pounders grow into two spunky little girls so quickly?

Where did the time go?

And how do I make it stop?

Three years ago today at 3:59 and 4:00

Addison McKinsey
Charlotte Ellison

were born.

So tiny yet so perfect.
I had to wait 8 days to hold you and it was torture.
Holding you in my arms for the first time was the most amazing thing ever.
I was overwhelmed with so much emotion I just cried.

I still cannot believe that it has been 3 years.
3 of the best years of my life.
You add so much to our lives.
So much laughter.

Addee 3lbs.6oz. 16 inches
Charlee 3lbs. 3oz. 15 3/4 inches.
Happy Birthday my sweet girls.

You are the best part of my life.

Happy Birthday to your beautiful girls. That are so darling and those pictures bring back such sweet memories of my baby twins. Your girls have beautiful names too. My Alexis also has the middle name MacKenzie.

Hope they have a wonderful Birthday!

Happy Birthday to your darlings! Sydney and Hailey were asking me who I was looking at when I was reading about your girls. They are just the cutest twins ever, I said. They always remind me of my girls!

Happy Birthday - you post made me cry as well! The wait to hold my girls was awful.

I've been thinking this growing thing has just got to stop. Right now!

Happy Birthday Girls!

Mom and Dad.. look at all you have survived.. and learned.. and how much your lives have changed.

The pregnancy, the NICU, not one, or two but THREE years of raising twins.. all while enjoying so many moments and firsts.

Congratulations to Mom and Dad too!

I can't believe I missed "MY" girls birthday. Give them a big hug and kiss. I can't believe they are THREE! It seems like just yesterday that they were born. I recall that time with such clarity, even if I wasn't there!

And, the Disneyland pictures are So cute. I'm glad you all had such a wonderful time. When did you go red?
