“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”
― Dr. Seuss,
Perhaps no one would wrestle in believing "there is no one alive who is Youer than You," like twins would. They have always been together- Baby A and Baby B, on the left and on the right, ROY and GBIV, in the same bed, in the same room, in the same car. And yet these two show us every day how unique, how fearfully and wonderfully made, they are.
From the moment the active duty Navy ultrasound tech announced to me, "Well your husband will be awfully surprised to find out that you are having twins," these two girls have been the best surprise we could ever dream up; two girls who would break the traditional birth order rules for the last born. They have provided us with joy and amusement, comfort and occasional chaos alike. These two have stretched themselves beyond comfortable to serve their family and others. They are seasoned adventurers and excellent travelers. It is our joy to see them love others and love our God. It has been such fun to celebrate a new year with them! We are excited to see all that the year ahead will hold for these two.
Happy birthday, twinsies. We love you both.
