Happy Birthday morning

8 years old
Ella got a LIV doll and some clothes

Michael got a Star Wars comforter and....

Lego Batman!!!!
I cannot believe that Michael and Ella are now 8 years old. I remember the day they were born so clearly. I had been feeling miserable the day before and had major cramps. Grandma Choo Choo was going to be in the middle of nowhere (Southern IL) and kept asking me if I thought she should stay home-nah, I told her-they aren't due for like three weeks!!! The morning of the 13th I woke up and as I stood beside the bed I thought-holy cow, I just wet my pants!!! Nope..that would be Michael's amniotic fluid!! Peris was sick with a cold so we took her downstairs, made all of the necessary phone calls and headed to St. Francis. Upon arrival, the wise nurse put me in a triage room with a doubtful look on her face (working in labor I now understand that women come in all the time "ruptured" or "in labor"). Once I informed her that I was pregnant with twins, the tone definately changed!! The doc said yep it's amniotic fluid and away we went. Michael came at 11:26 a.m. and Ella followed at 11:27 a.m. weighing in at 6lbs and 6lb 1oz-not bad for babies who were almost a month early!! And where was Grandma Choo Choo?? Freaking out in Uncle John's car rushing back to Peoria where there was still plenty of excitement to be had!!
Oh how life changed!!
There has never been a dull moment since!
