Birthday Twins! | Eastern Washington Child Photographer
Everyone has a birthday twin, someone who was born the same day and most likely even the same year as you! On this day, three years ago, my spunky, silly, strong, shy and sweet daughter was born. On a more personal note, very unexpectedly, she surprised us with an early arrival, and at 7 weeks premature, weighing in at 4lbs 10oz, she was delivered by emergency c-section and rushed to Spokane Sacred Heart Hospital NICU. Although I had to stay behind for a couple of days recovering as quickly as possible to join my itty bitty new baby girl who was 2 hours away from me, hours later that same day, a little boy who was also born much earlier weighing only 1lb 8oz joined Hailey in the NICU and they became roomies what was for us, the next 4 weeks. I thank God everyday Hailey is a happy healthy "baby" girl, my miracle girl in so so many ways! Speaking of miracles, Mr. "C" was a miracle baby that day too, after a very long road, lots of prayers and support with amazing parents by his side, he too got to finally go home many weeks later. His momma and and I got to know each other during our stay together, shared our stories and have kept in touch ever since! They will forever be birthday twins and I had the lucky opportunity to catch them both on camera a few weeks ago while visiting my sister in Walla Walla, WA. Through puddles and of course cupcakes, we enjoyed a little catch up time and re-introducing our 2 littles again after so long!
I just love these 2 and will always have a special place in my heart Mr. "C" and his sweet family! Thank you Brook for your friendship and inspiration. You're a strong Momma and I admire you!
