It must have been teenage!
Twenty years ago,today, at this very time Ian and Kaylyn Gray entered the World.....I remember it was a Tuesday. I remember this because we were driving to the hospital listening to the radio and it was two for Tuesday.......my husband and I thought this was so funny because we knew we were having twins. Our lives have never been the same since.....Kaylyn and Ian fill our lives with joys and blessings.........Happy 20th Birthday Ian and Kaylyn!!!! The birth was a giant relief they were beautiful and healthy......Kaylyn.....7lbs. and Ian.....6lb and 11 oz. I could recognize the difference in their cries instantly!!!! I remember from the instant I held them I couldn't look at one longer than the other(I probably looked like I was watching a tennis match). Most of the time growing up Kaylyn was taller then Ian......no worries......look at them now!!! Ian is taller then all of us!!!! The day was perfect also.....the summer I was pregnant was the hottest on record. I often think it was great that we had twins so Glen and I wouldn't fight over holding the babies.....we always had one to hold. When they took each one away to be weighed it seemed like an eternity......when Glen came back with them all swaddled in their blankets he said..."You're not going to believe what was playing on the hospital music system.....and I have it all on tape........Baker Street!". I was in disbelief......this was "Our" song....but, the history of "our" song was not really a good one......we actually fought over it and in the beginning of our relationship I really couldn't believe we could fight over something like this.....we didn't talk for awhile.....Glen really brought the whole thing up and wanted "Don't go Changing" by Billy Joel........well I wanted "Baker Street.....Needless to say after a while what did it matter.......but, I AM Irish and stubborn.......it was silly....When we left the hospital the heat wave was gone and this most beautiful breeze was blowing......of course, I thought this would have been nice during those last few days before I gave birth. But, again it made that feeling of relief that much stronger........but, now I was full of thoughts of how we would be able to keep two babies fed, changed, and happy. It was challenging but, the best days of my life...........they were a joy then and they still are. Some of the best moments of my life were just staring at them and thinking what a lucky person I was. Happy Birthday Ian and Kaylyn!!!!!
