I thought being pregnant was the best thing in the entire world. It was even more meaningful for me to share the experience with my older sister. Katie had twin babies just eleven days after Everett was born. They came into this world a little earlier than we had all planned for, but sometimes that’s just how life works. I could never imagine complaining during my pregnancy because seeing Katie fight so hard to become pregnant made me appreciate every back ache, every point of exhaustion, and every pound I gained. I knew I was fortunate to become pregnant in the first place, let alone to carry Everett past full term.
Kate and I have plenty of characteristics that make us unique from each other, but the older we grow, the more similar I find we are. There’s nothing in the world, for instance, we love more than being mothers. It was such a joy for me to take these newborn photos for my brand new baby niece and nephew.
