Karis & Kyra

Keegan's "birthday twin", Karis, was in town this week for her annual cardiology visit.  Keegan and Karis were born the same day and were in the CICU at Children's together.  Karis's repair was done with her own tissue, and she has done fantastically since then.  She got such a great report this time that she doesn't have to come back for another check for three years!  Isn't that wonderful?

Can you believe these two are almost 3 years old?!

I could not for the life of me get the two of them to look at me at the same time!

Last fall when we announced that Audrey was due the end of June, Ashley (Karis's mom) announced just a few weeks later that she was also due with their second child on July 4.  We joked throughout our pregnancies that if she were early and I was late, we could have birthday twins again!  Well, that didn't happen.  Audrey was early, and little Kyra was a few days late.  BUT get this...Audrey was 6/6/10 at 1:38am, and Kyra was 7/7 at 1:34pm!!  Craziness, I tell ya!  Both girls are doing well and healthy, and even though our firstborns' broken hearts brought our families together, we couldn't be more thankful for healthy little girls. 
Kyra & Audrey had these matching outfits, so we couldn't resist a picture.

Happy girls!

We are so glad we were able to spend time with you, Chuck, Ashley, Karis, & little Kyra!  We're very grateful for Karis's good report and hope that the next time we get together is JUST for fun!
