My mom brought out a box of her treasures on Sunday after dinner. There were all sorts of letters and journals and pictures from when she was a kid and during the early years of her marriage. It was pretty amazing to look through all of them. Among all the stuff were our baby things. Look at these gems:
The Birth Announcement
Don't you love that they put the address? You know, to make it easy for those people who want to bring gifts, or steal the baby.
Did you know I'm a twin? Erin was born with a hole in her heart and lived for just 4 months. It's a little strange having a twin who isn't here and sometimes a little sad that she doesn't get to join in the hilariousness that is my family right now. But the fact is, we'll have eternity to laugh over Bill Murray quotes together. And trust me, we will. Best thing about being a Mormon: eternal families. And all that Jell-O.
Sometimes when people find out that I'm a twin they say, "You mean, there are TWO of you?" I can't tell if it's awe or fear.
