My beautiful twin daughters are turning 9 today. This time 9 years ago we were by their sides in NICU being told that they had less than 1% chance of survival.
The girls were born at 25 weeks gestation. Ashley weighed 690g and Carys weighed 730g. They spent the first 5 months in hospital. 3 rounds of brain surgery, 2 rounds eye surgery later we got to take them home.
How the years have flown and I am so grateful to have my beautiful girls. Today we had a party at home for them. One of our friends lent us a bouncy castle which helped burn off some energy and another clever friend made their birthday cakes for me. (Usually I would make their cakes but her cakes are far more lovely than my efforts.)
I thought I would share some photos from our journey – from 4 hours old, to toddlers, to first day of kindergarten to their birthday today. How the years have flown. Happy birthday my special girls x.
