As each year goes by I am amazed at how quickly these two are growing up. They are alike in many ways, yet sooooo different. Being five years apart I would say that they would have to be different! I will always remember the day I had both these beauties. Little did I know that Chelsea would be born on the same day and month as her sister, because let me tell you....we did not plan it that way! Chelsea's original due date was January 14, but obviously decided at the last minute to be ONE day overdue, and born on the same day as her sister. Yep...she wanted to be the center of attention, and she totally got it on the morning of Lexie's fifth birthday.

It has been a blast having two kids being born on the same day. It kind of feels like I have twins except one is taller than the other! It's kind of funny actually. Whenever I've ordered a cake, or buy two of the same thing the sales clerk, or cook will say something along the lines of, "how awesome it is that you have twins!", and then I'd have to correct them and say, "oh no...I don't have twins, they're born on the same day, but five years apart." Then they'd continue to ask how we managed to do that, and my reply would be that we never planned it that way it just happened! Such a fun story!
I honestly believe that Chelsea wanted to come down, and be born on Lexie's birthday so that a bond can be created, and regardless of their difference in age, and personality they sure do love each other.
Happy Birthday girls!
