9 Years Old * Happy Birthday to Ellie and Jenna

9 years ago today, I drove myself to the hospital, as I assumed I would be getting routine tests.  I was feeling very large, uncomfortable, and unsure what was next. Hours later, I was handed the most amazing 2 miniature people in the whole world, Ellie and Jenna. At approximately 5 pounds each, they were tiny little babies, and they were completely dependent on my husband and me for everything. Here they are at a week old.

Fast forward 9 years… They bring me so much joy.  They even do many things for themselves now (YAY!). They make me laugh and fill my life with love. They are growing up so fast. And some days I feel like they are almost grown ups.  It won’t be long until they are. For those of you who know me from my eBay days 8 1/2 years ago or even from the start of MCP Actions in 2006, you probably are thinking, “wow – they are already 9.”

On today, December 19th, HAPPY BIRTHDAY ELLIE AND JENNA! May all your wishes come true.

I am so lucky to have you in my life – and you are so lucky to have each other.

    Oh my, I’ve been a fan of your actions for quite a while now (think I own almost all of them now) and had no idea you were a Mom of Multiples. I have 4 year old triplets and a 2 year old and cannot believe how fast the time has passed already. Happy birthday to your beautiful girls and thanks for all Photoshop gems!!! Many blessings to you and your family this Christmas season.
