Twins turn 18

Being that my little babies are growing older. I felt a little nostalgic today. Here are some pictures from the good ol' days... I'll post individual ones for their birthday and pictures of how they spent their birthday's in another post soon. Senior pictures are coming soon too.

For the first 3 months they slept in the same crib. Usually they were happier together except for Lauren on the left who's crying in this picture. I separated then into two beds and two rooms because they would wake eachother up at night. Andrew was a great sleeper, Lauren was not.

Oma came for 2 weeks to help out. Probably the only real rest I've had in 18 years.

Luckily they napped at the same time. Andrew is in the red.



6 months old

Loved their walkers- Andrew especially. He would sprint around the house.

Moved to NJ when they were a year old

Randy went to school in NJ- that's why we moved back there.

Nursery age. We tried to get them to hold hands. No luck.

Sunbeam age. German outfits and ready for hand holding.

Used to love playing in the NJ snow. Andrew is laying down.

5 years old in Easter clothes

Yep! They have always been good pals.

Jumping on Daddy when he came home from a church meeting.

Can't believe they are really 18 years old today. I have loved every minute of being their mother and watching them grow and change over the years. Happy 18th Andrew and Lauren! I love you moocho!

Darling pictures! I didn't believe it for the longest time that they were twins--because they have their own look and are not identical. How neat to have each other. Time goes by so quickly.

Happy birthday to them.
