Happy Birthday Margaret and Nikolai!!!

This is Niko and Margaret about 3 hours after she was born. Niko climbed into bed with us and found Margaret there! Quite the birthday present. They were both born on February 16th, two years apart. They were also both three weeks early. How weird is that? I have tallied it up: 10.5 total hours in labour from Feb 15-16 2002/2004. Not bad for two such gorgeous kids!


Here they are this morning. How big they are: 3 and 5. How did that happen?
We are having the family over for a spaghetti dinner tonight and tomorrow they are having a "King and Princess" party with 12 little friends and Cupcake the Party Clown!!! She is the best clown ever! Fun, fun, fun. Alas, I must go and bake a cake and cook some spaghetti sauce and make 12 party crowns and 12 loot bags....

Homebirthed babies. It is truly such a wonderful wonderful thing. Both my girls were born at home and the boys in the hospital. Funny how things work out. My favourite is little Greta's 1 hour and 50 minute labour and water birth. I don't know why I didn't do that with the first!!!

So - how was the party? How were the costumes?

I look forward to seeing them.
