“You must be due any day now.” Being pregnant with twins I heard that a lot. “No, no” I’d tell them, “I still have a long way to go.” But that long wait ended quicker than I expected when I was rushed in for an emergency c-section one month before my due date. With my blood pressure soaring above 200, my and my babies’ health was at stake. At only 20 years old I was scared to death—let me tell you! All of that was instantly washed away though when I first saw my beautiful baby boys, both healthy and strong, weighing in at 5 lbs 10 oz and 6-1/2 lbs. They were perfect in every way!

It is so hard to believe that time has gone by so fast and now my tiny little boys are the same age that I was when I gave birth to them. Twenty years old, how can it be? But they are still every bit as precious to my heart as they were then. We have been through some trials together for sure! But I’m so proud of them and so happy to say that they will always be my sweet baby boys!

Thank you Mason and Jordan for giving me the happiness and joy of being your mother. I look forward to sharing many more wonderful moments with you in our lives!
Happy Birthday my Sweet Boys!

What good looking boys! Twenty years old? Can't be! Aren't we just a little older than 20 ourselves?!

I wish I could've gotten to know your boys better. I can't believe they are 20. The only story I remember hearing about them was the wiping their diapers (dirty and not the wet dirty) all over their bedroom wall. Did I remember that correctly? I thought that was a funny story but I can imagine how mad you must have been to walk in on that. Happy Birthday!!!!!

You know, I think I can count on one hand the number of times I've seen you in the last 20 years. Sad! I remember meeting Mason and Jordan for the first time when they were about 2 or 3 and they had these little suits on. They were adorable...seems like just yesterday.
