This Crazy Beautiful Life: Twins?!??!!        

About Me

My name is Kelly. I am wife to one and mommy to three. If its left up to me, that's the way I'd like it to stay. :-) I've been through a lot of struggles and down falls, but I'm thankful for God's hand in my life as well as His grace and mercy.

Pregnant? I know the Lord is humorous, but that would just be cruel!

I often, as in everyday, get asked if Gabriella and Layton are twins. Gabriella will be 4 on July 15th and Layton turned 2 on March 1st. They are 19.5 months apart, to the day. However; Gabriella is so dainty and has been since birth. While Layton, on the other hand, has always been very big. She weighed 6lbs 6ozs and was 2 weeks early. He weighed 7lbs 6ozs and was 3 weeks early. You see the pattern? Gabriella was in preemie clothes for a month and and half, and always grew at a very slow rate. Mr. Big stuff, Layton, was a very very fast growing, chunky baby boy.

Last year I said to myself several times, "he's going to pass her up if he keeps growing like this"; and he soon did. I believe it was close to his second birthday when he took the 2lb step in front of Gabriella. I thought it was so funny that my 2 year old was/is bigger than my near 4 year old.

It never fails that I hear the question "awww are they twins?" when I take them in public. I just smile and say "no". :-) I used to tell my husband all time when I was asked this question. Now I don't have to. We went out to dinner last Friday evening and the server asked "the" question. He chuckled as he heard it asked for the first time.

They are both so different....Gabriella is a sassy, yet sweet, totally in control, girly sponge that soaks up everything she can! While Layton is a tender hearted, big and strong, hilarious messy monster!

They fight like cats and dogs and drive me bonkers, but oh I love them both something ferocious!!

Just this morning they were playing together and getting along and I wondered if they weren't ill. This continued on into the afternoon. That's when I began to get used to it. BAM! Just like an earthquake that comes without warning, the fights started through til bedtime. Nope, no sickness here. :-)

Have I mentioned how much I love them?! <3

Here they are together at the zoo checking out the zebras.


  1. We get the twins comments a lot too. All four of ours are within 22 months of each other and the three youngest are all about the same size. People don't really know what to think of them!

    1. Oh wow! You've got 4 that close?! I thought I'd seen some crazy days. Now I know I'm not alone. Mine are 19.5 months to 22 months apart. I couldn't imagine another one added. You must be supermom! And in which case; we should meet. :)
