Three Years Ago Today....

....I'd be just waking up in a morphine and magneseum sulfate haze. (If you've ever done either, you'd know that it ain't pretty) I'd be soon finding out that instead of staying 25% effaced and 1cm dilated, that I'd be 2cm dilated and 50% effaced. No one could have prepared me for the fact that I would not be leaving the hospital on bedrest and Trebutaline. That I would be staying at the hospital and having contractions that they couldn't stop. That I would be pleading for someone to check me, for I was having contractions that the morphine couldn't ease the pain. That the doctor would come in to tell me that the babies would be born that very day.

....And no one, I repeat NO ONE could have prepared me for what I have today. Two unruly kids who scratch their friends (well, the other daycare kids...people give me money to have their kids play with mine.... sounds not so bad when i think of it that way...*wink* ), talk back to me, and eat all my food. Nor could they have prepared me for the wonderful kisses and words of love that I would get from these two little people who have made such an impact on so many lives.

Funny that you mention 3 years ago today. I was just thinking 1 year ago for about the past week. I know with Olivia I didnt quite replay everything in my mind for the 2nd year as much as I did the first. So how is it for the 3rd year?

I can't believe they are 3. They truly are miracles, and I feel so blessed to have all of my nieces and nephews in my life. And they're geniuses, but I'm biased :-)

WooooHoooo Three year old twins! Spank them each for me, you know they need it. I'll have to tell Seth it's not "baby work" at your house any more! Of course, he knows they aren't babies, but he loves to see them. Got plans for a little something special for them this weekend? A nice big chololate cake maybe?

I can't believe it's been 3 years. I remember how shocked Aaron's voice was when he called me to tell me about the twins. 3! Hugs and kisses from their honorary Aunt Katie (doesn't that sound so nice? hehe)
