That’s how old my babies are today. When they were born my oldest was 5 and our second son was 2 1/2. They were the first twins born in our immediate family and what a ruckus they caused. I still remember the day we found out we were having twins just like it was yesterday. I came home and said to Bill..”Well, you really did it this time” The first thing out of his mouth was “Think of the groceries” I thought that was funny. Mom and Dad were the next ones I called to tell them we where having twins and she dropped the phone and started yelling at Terry to tell her about it. There I am hanging on the phone and mom’s yelling out the door and telling the whole neighborhood about it. My grandpa was especially excited. He’d call almost everyday to see how I was feeling and after they were born they were almost the first ones there to see us.
Our daughter weighed 4’ 14” and our son weighed 6’12”, big for twins I know. But even at that she had so stay in the hospital until she weighed 5 pounds. My dad was so cute. He hadn’t had a chance to hold her yet so when I finally was able to bring her home he would stop everyday after work but she was always sleeping. It finally dawned on me that he wanted to hold her but didn’t want to wake her up. So one day when he stopped I just picked her up and handed her to him. That made him happy and he was happily giving her butterfly kisses.
So anyway, they are 39 years old today and I couldn’t be more proud of them
Happy Birthday Dana & Deanna, We love you
