Four Years Ago Today

This is what I looked like 4 years ago today. My daughter was about to deliver twins and I was the "official photographer". After it was decided that she wouldn't be having an emergency C Section, things loosened up a bit and I was allowed to shed the mask.

Ethan Caleb made his appearance first. I can't believe he was ever this little. The pacifier looks like it was made for a giant.Luka Benjamin apparently decided that he was enjoying all that space in there too much and wasn't born until about an hour and 10 minutes later. Since they were 6 weeks early, this is where they lived for two weeks before they were allowed to go home. It was pretty incredible the first time I got to hold both of them at once.It was amazing how much these two little guys grew that first year. Here they are Christmas Day just 5 days after their first birthday. Can you believe that when they were born we actually thought they might be identical!!! That's Ethan on the left and Luka on the right. Since they moved to San Diego, when they were 8 months old, we don't get to see them very often. This was taken when we visited them when they were a little over two. Both boys love the computer and fights have ensued when they both try to use it at the same time.But I bet if you asked Luka if he had to choose between the computer and Lambie--his choice would be Lambie!Since we were busy selling the house this summer, we didn't get a chance to go to San Diego so I haven't seen Ethan, Luka and their big brother Noah for a year now. I can't wait until we get to go see them in January. I know they have grown a LOT since I last saw them.

So guys, Beyuh would just like to wish you both a very Happy 4th Birthday. I wish I could be there to help you blow out your candles, although I'm sure you won't need any help. I love you and miss you and can't wait to see you.
