Happy Birthday Devin & Derek

Devin and Derek are "9"
(We went all out on a cake. LOL)
As life rushes by, the biggest difference we see is in our kids, that is if we are looking at all. It seems that one day you turn around and they are grown. How did that happen? I told the boys the morning of their birthday that "9 years ago today, they cut me open and ripped you out of my body", they both made a really funny face. But it was true.
The boys had their 9th birthday on Sat the 20th. It's really hard to believe they are 9. They got a set of Walkie Talkies, great scooters, things for scouts and few other little goodies. I love my boys so much!
(I know I have posted these pictures before, but here they are again)

This picture was taken on Sunday Sep. 19th
I went to church that day and had the boys at 1:00 am that night

This picture was taken in the NICU; the boys are 5 days old
and this was the first time they had seen each other since birth.
It's hard to see in this picture but Devin is holding on to Derek’s arm.
They missed each other! Devin stayed 5 more days and came home weighing only 3lbs 11 oz, he was so little.
