Well, it was a little over a year ago that I was huge, uncomfortable and set to pop at any moment. I was carrying 50+ lbs. of weight, going to the hospital twice a week for fetal monitoring, seeing my regular Ob at least once a week to be weighed, measured and prodded, and (with a lot of help from my family) trying to keep up with our 22 month-old Maggie. It was a crazy and weird time of our lives, but today we have these beautiful twin 1 year-olds as a result and we are happy to say that we survived the first year! In retrospect it feels like it may have gone faster than Maggie's first year. There were ups and downs (mostly ups) and we can't begin to describe in words the joy these kids have brought us and the love we have for all 3 of our children.
Here are some photos from a year ago and then the current birthday pics. Try not to get too freaked out by the belly photo...my brother-in-law Tyler said it best when he commented that it "Defied Gravity!"
