Daniel is on the left and David is on the right in both pictures. (At least thats what we tell ourselves about the first picture)
I can’t believe these babies are 11 1/2. They seemed so little, and fragile back then. I didn’t know what to expect with twins. I had visions, and nightmares about two boys the same age. But those visions didn’t come true.
They were good eaters, sleepers (Thank you Babywise!) and even good toddlers. I often say having them is the most fun I’ve ever had.
When I was pregnant I thought one would be blond and the other brown headed, they arrived looking just alike. We didn’t know who was who just by looking the whole first year! It wasn’t a good feeling not being able to tell your children apart.
Although David and Daniel look a lot alike they act so differently. And I love each of them so very much. God gave them such different personalities. They bring much laughter and smiles to our lives.
A few months ago a preacher friend came up to me to tell me that a dear older man in the church had come to him saying that my boys were tricking him. I knew it was going to happen sometime, we tease about it, but I couldn’t believe they had chosen to trick an older man. I confronted them about it and they denied it, when asked separately and together.
Months have passed and the man had been sick and was back in church Sunday. Daniel went to say hi to him during church, and as he was walking back to me, the man turned to a friend of mine and asked if she knew him. He told her that he used to think he was a twin!! It turns out when he said the boys were tricking him, he actually thought it was one boy trying to convince him he had a twin! I couldn’t believe it, how funny. I told the boys and Daniel was so relieved. He had felt bad about tricking the man.
We knew they would pull a trick or two, but never did we think telling the truth would cause confusion! I hope you get to meet these boys in person one day if you haven’t already. They love the Lord so very much and are good sons. I can’t wait to see what the Lord has in store for them in the future.
Oh, these boys bring us such joy.
