Happy Birthday!

Our two beautiful, tiny little girls were born 8 years ago today!!  They came 2 months early – weighing only 3lbs 10oz and 3lbs 13 oz. 

Although tiny, they were strong.  Thank you, Lord!!

Happy Birthday to our Isabella Faith and Sophia Grace- born at 1:01 & 1:02 pm respectively!

DCP_1069  here we are – just a few weeks beforehand..unaware of how soon we would see them.  No, I am not making this picture any bigger than it already is.


Sophia’s first picture!


Here’s Isabella!

Although all those tubes look frightening, the girls were actually doing great – they just had to have CPAP for a bit initially.




The day before they came home at 3 weeks old – 4lbs 1oz each!


DCP_1199  one of my favorites pictures of them when they were newborns…


IMG_1318  and here are they are now!  Playing with Sophia’s homemade laptops with attached headphones. 

Happy Birthday, Girls!!  We love you!!


  1. Aren't you so glad you have that maternity shot taken? Is is the last one of you taken while you were still pregnant? Amazing you can tell the girls apart even when they were premie newborns! I love their homemade laptop. Ha! (Did you really post this at 3:56 am??? I'll bet you did ...

  2. All of these picutres are beautiful!! Yes, the first one too!
    Happy Birthday girls!!

  3. My beautiful girls, inside and out!

  4. I think it is the last one take of me when I was pregnant - well... wait there might be one more. But it was of me asleep on the sofa - a sideview that required the landscape setting on the camera. The one you see here is all you're going to get! ;)
    And as far as telling them apart - look closely - I bet you can see that Sophia's shoulders and upper body look just the same as now, and so do Izzy's. And - I think their legs are noticeably different, don't you? :) Can you tell in the shot of them together that in the pink outfits, Isabella is in front, and Sophia behind? And then in the crib here, Sophia's hand is touching Isabella's head?
    Thanks for the kind compliments, girls. :) Love you both - and my honey, too.
