Here’s a letter to our daughters on their first birthday together
16th December ‘ 2016
I could feel magic the moment I saw you both first.
I felt I was wearing a cape the moment I held you, to sweep you away from any tough situation, to wrap you up in my arms and keep you safe.
I was so taken by your beautiful face, I could hardly bare to look away.
For me and your dad you both have been our angels.
Two angels born on the same date 16th December, who chose different years to come into our life.
This sounds freaky to many, but that has been our blessed destiny.
I managed to give birth to the both of you on the same day, 3 years apart. I wasn’t prepared for this, nor was your dad. As per the doctor, this wasn’t expected to happen either. I was tired second time around girls. I felt my body was giving up on the strength . I visited my doctor, and cried. Cried because I felt exhausted, I wasn’t sure if I could wait any longer. The doctor told me THE DATE: The date that she would help me bring #mylittlemuffin into our life.
I can’t explain in words how I felt next, when the doctor told me the date it would happen.
She declared 16th Dec.
Woahhh! The tired me suddenly got excited at the news.
This was the date that has been the best date ever for me and your dad. It wasn’t just your birthday #mybigmuffin , but the date that has been nothing less than a celebration for us. A celebration of happiness, fun, magic and togetherness.
I couldn’t control my tears and felt blessed. Bringing our two beautiful angels into the world on the same date. It was destined to be this way.
Your dad and I were about to gift you my girl #mybigmuffin , a best friend for life on your 3rd birthday. We were on cloud nine. Excited! Yet weren’t sure if this was right for the both of you.
We thought over this for days, thought if it would be fair to go ahead and let you both share the same birthday.
We were worried if when you girls grow up how would you react. Would you feel that you girls should have had different birthdates?
But then we got the answer!!
We got the answer the day you were born #mylittlemuffin .
The day #mybigmuffin , you held your little sister in your arms and kissed her and rejoiced the new gift of God for you, on your special day.
The magic you both had in your eyes when you both looked at each other that day, mesmerised everyone in the room.
The way #mybigmuffin , you spoke to everyone on the phone and explained how excited you were to have a little sister who has the same birthday as yours, got everyone around excited too .
What we saw, made us believe that this was destined, and were sure this was happening since that’s what was best for us.
For us, both you lovelies are equally precious. You both are really special.
We as parents have always believed that we would do our best to love you girls equally. We as a family believed that for us there could be nothing better than what was going to happen.
Instead of freaking out on finding a way to make you both girls feel special on the same day, we chose to embrace it.
We knew that you girls were born on the same day because you were meant to spend the rest of your life, celebrating your birthday’s together.
How amazing it would be to share your birthday with someone who has known you their entire life.
There would be a time definitely, when your hormones would start to kick into an overdrive and you wouldn’t find it cool too share a ‘Frozen’ or ‘Minion’ theme party.
There would probably be a few years you would choose to celebrate with your friend separately.
But I’m too sure that when you would be in your 20’s, you would have gala time, enjoying may be a glass of champagne somewhere in the world together, because you wouldn’t be able to imagine being anywhere else but with each other.
You know what’s so amazing about the both of you?
My birth twin daughters look remarkably like each other.
When today, your dad and I look at you both, it is with great marvel.
We wonder how did we became parents to these beautiful little princesses.
You both fill our heart with so much love.
So here we raise a toast to double the celebration! Double the fun!
Double the cheer!
Double the craziness!
On the most special day of your dad’s and my life.
On this first birthday that you share together, and every 16th December, I would want you to know that I’m filled with joy and gratitude of watching you both grow together.
Mom and dad
