Today is our grand babies Ollie Bear & Livy Sue’s second birthday. It’s times like this that makes the distance between New Jersey and Ohio really stink! We can’t just get together whenever we’d like. I know for some families they may think that’s a good thing…but not us! We actually enjoy spending time together! We try to get together as much as possible.
After our son Brian and his wife Jen had our grand daughter Emma, we didn’t think they were going to have any more children. Emma was nine when they surprised us with the news that they were expecting. When they had their twenty week ultrasound they called us to tell us the sex of their little one! Brian said, “We’re having another girl.” In the background Emma yelled out, “And a boy!” I said, “Okay, which is it!” They all yelled out, “It’s both!”
They were born prematurely which is not unusual for twins. Olivia was so tiny compared to her brother. However, they seem to have a bond that is adorable to watch.
It was such an exciting time. Both our daughter-in-laws were expecting at the same time with their second pregnancies and due within a couple months of each other. It’s a time I will never forget.
These babies are the light of our lives. We are having such fun with all of them. Making memories with this bunch of kids is so much fun😊
