Twenty Three years Ago Today

I was born.

Man I feel old.


And six years ago today my parents thought it would have been great to surprise me and my siblings by telling me that they were going to have another baby. {that's her in the pic, not me}

{what?}
Yes, you heard me.

I remember standing in the doorway, my head feeling incredibly light. I had to lean on the side of the door to keep from collapsing. My knees never shook that much. I might as well have thought that I was going to have a baby.

The ultrasound picture looked just like my other sister so I thought they dug it up from somewhere and were playing some sick joke on us. I never believed my parents until my mom started getting bigger and more emotional.

But I'm happy she's here. The light of my life. I love her.

{awwwwww}

HAPPY BIRTHDAYYYYYYYYY!!!!

dude i didnt know you and your sister had the same birthday. are you serious!?!?

Anyways, I'm sooooooooo glad someone else is 23 with me now. YAYAY and yes i do realize this is the last age that sounds "fun"...I'm trying to make myself think that 24 doesnt sound so bad. But it's so not working.

Anyways, take a break from studying and eat cake!!

Happy Birthday to you! I think it would be great to have a little sis that young. Many of my friends have kids though, and I have a sweet little niece, so that helps, too! :)

Happy Belated Birthday Mary and Girl on a Journey!!

Thanks so much everyone else!

AL - My sis and I looked totally different as kids. :) But now everyone thinks were twins. How weird. At least they do in India. I've never heard the twins bit in Michigan, though.
