In utero Lucy was baby A. Because I had a C-section, Hazel was pulled out first and Lucy became baby B. I think she may be stepping aside for her sister a lot. She is my sweetest child. I adore her. If it weren't for her heart she'd be my easiest child. She is such a smiley baby which is such a blessing to us. She lights up the room. Of all my children she is the most like Chuck.
Lucy and Hazel have matching dimples on their right cheeks and the both have crazy hairlines. Their cries are really difficult to tell apart. They are more amused by their brother than they are with each other but they love holding hands. Having identical twins is nothing like I expected.
When I became a mother I went through a bit of a crisis. I didn't know who I was anymore. It was really difficult adjusting to life at home. I felt like being a mom wasn't enough. I felt unfulfilled. I am convinced that there is nothing I could be doing that is more important than what I'm doing right now. My children have shown me my weaknesses and shown me my strengths.
