Way Back When-esday: Birthday edition

Tomorrow my brother and I will be 34 years old!! I have loved growing up as a twin!! It really is such a neat bond to share. In my childhood, I had a constant companion,playmate, and best friend. We have always been close and although now we are married and have families of our own, I know I can count on my brother no matter what. I have always enjoyed celebrating our special day together.

I still love hearing my parents tell us about the day we were born, we decided to arrive 6 weeks early. They had no idea they were having twins until my brother was born and the doctor said he was small at a little over 5 lbs and that he thought there was another baby. Well, two minutes later I arrived breach, weighing a whopping 4 lbs, 2 oz!! As a mother, who's had two children, I cannot even imagine the shock and surprise they experienced on that day!

Here are just a few pics of Michael and I through the years...
