Twin “Connection”

Scientists will tell you that twins share a special bond – a connection that the rest of us can’t quite understand.  As the mother of twins, I’ve witnessed this “connection” from the moment my two were just a few days old.  I remember entering the ICU one day and seeing their incubators pushed together.  The nurses told me that the girls were both fussy and the minute they pushed the incubators close (where they could sense each other), they both quieted down and went to sleep.  That was the first of MANY stories I could share over the past 30 years.

When Colleen married Jimmy, Katie was the Maid of Honor and I remember her speech leaving the room a mass of tears and tissues. 

So, when Katie married Santiago, I knew it would be an emotional day for the two of them.  Three sisters (Carrie, Chrissie and Kelli) walked down the aisle with beautiful smiles.  Matron of honor, and twin sister Colleen, couldn’t hide her emotions.

Colleen didn’t disappoint with her speech.  The most touching moment was when Colleen told a story of Jimmy being out of town on business and Katie offering to spend the night.  Benjamin was an infant – and he was having a fussy night.  Colleen got up in the middle of the night to find Katie, sitting in his nursery – rocking him.  Benjamin looked up at his mother, then looked at Katie, and then back at his mother – and he smiled – as if to say, “if I cry hard enough – they multiply”. 

Is there anything more beautiful than the emotion captured in photographs??

The pearl necklace is adorable! I would love to have my pearl necklace wear that. I love the black pearl set, really wish we sent for it since it's sooo cute! big hoop earrings we bought about 1.5 months in advance since she probably won't grow too much in that time period.
