Happy Birthday Mari and Ben!

This time two years ago I was looking at the clock and thinking I better wrap this up or I am going to miss the 49ers game. This time two years ago I was informed that my two hours of pushing were up and if I didn't get them out right now I would be forced to have a c-section. Two years ago at this time I let out a blood curdling scream as I was given an episiotomy with no anesthetic.  Suddenly, I was greeted with a perfect little girl, with a perfect little boy to follow ten minutes later. Two years ago they looked like this:

And  today they look like this:

Happy Birthday Mari and Ben! I hope your greatest dream comes true. Mine already has.
