Sixteen years ago we had one infant car seat, one crib, one highchair, and one very pregnant mother.

Sixteen years ago Mom and Dad went to the hospital to have the baby.

Sixteen years ago Aaron Gerard came into the world.

Sixteen years ago the doctors looked at each other in disbelief and said "We seem to have a problem. We think there might be another one in there."

Sixteen years ago, an hour and a half after Aaron was born, Elizabeth Mary came into our lives.

Sixteen years ago we had surprise twins on Mothers Day.

Sixteen years ago we still had one infant car seat, one crib and one highchair...but we now had TWO babies.

Sixteen years ago we were a little shocked.

Sixteen years ago we were so in love with those two little babies.

Sixteen years ago I was the happiest,proudest big sister in the whole world.

Aaron & Elizabeth, May 8th, 1994

I have a few comments on this picture:

1. It proves that right from the beginning Elizabeth was a stubborn little person. Aaron was being so cooperative with his eyes open for the picture, and Elizabeth was just sleeping away with no thoughts whatsoever about opening her eyes her their first photoshoot.
2. Can you imagine being the only person in the world who knew there was another person in your mommys tummy with you? That's alot of responsibility to put on one tiny person. Poor Aaron.
3. The very sweetest thing about this picture{because its complete and utter cuteness}is that they're holding hands. Isn't that the sweetest thing ever?
4. I wish they were babies again.
5. I ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ them.

I read your post twice! Really! It was so sweet...and what a surprise for your family. I even had my daughter (who also blogs) come read it because it was such a fun post to read.

Happy 16th Birthday to your siblings!
