This day holds so many emotions. It is amazing to me how fear and sorrow can be so equally balanced with happiness and hope. Under very dire circumstances, at 6:27 and 6:28 pm, I gave birth to the two tiniest and sickest babies I had ever seen. They were barely alive.
Three years later, those 2 pounders weigh a combined nearly 70 lbs. They are not only living and breathing, but they are thriving. They have overcome every challenge they have faced and they have been the greatest teachers of life that I could have ever imagined. They bless the lives of anyone who is lucky enough to know them.
Asher Timothy Cohen and Nolan Giovanni Luke - to say you are loved and cherished does not do you even the slightest bit of justice. Because of you, we appreciate all the little things in life that previously went unnoticed and without gratitude. You are a gift.
Three years old today. Amazing how far they've come!

Today has been a great day with friends, presents, and some overly indulgent cupcakes. A small celebration to mark the day, with the real festivities on Saturday.
Happy Birthday, my loves!
