Dear Rory and Hudson,
Welcome to the world, little angels. I’ve never been a huge fan of calling someone an angel. I’m not sure why. But you two, that’s exactly what you are. The happiness that we felt took over our hearts when we found out your mom and dad were expecting a baby. We were thrilled for them and to have you. Little did we know there were two of you in her belly! I will never forget that day. After your mom popped the first balloon, and the pink confetti poured out, we hugged and celebrated. Sure, we would have been happy whether boy or girl, but I was SO happy to soon have a niece. Then your mom pulled out a second balloon… a second balloon? two? what? She looked at us and said “this one is for her identical twin sister.” What?! You’re joking! Nope. They weren’t joking. As soon as we all realized that she wasn’t joking, instant tears of absolute happiness filled everyone’s eyes. And let me tell you, your mom and dad seemed pretty overwhelmed. No one could blame them. But they were so happy. Your dad kept looking at your mom with a look that said, “life doesn’t get better” Rory and Hudson, you are so loved. Your dad and mom are two of the best people I know, and you are just as lucky to have them as they are to have you.
I love you, pretty girls. We all do.
