Hey everyone, I need your help! These twins turn THREE today and their party has been shut down (along with everything else). I’m hoping this Sunday Spotlight can put a smile on their mom’s beautiful face. That we can help put a little extra sparkle in her eye and let her know we are thinking of them. Please comment below and wish them a Happy Birthday. You can also head over to @paxtonpartyof4 and say hello!
Hi everyone! We are the Paxton Family and we live in Las Vegas, NV. After 5 years of struggling to get pregnant, we finally turned to a fertility clinic and luckily got pregnant on the first round…with twins. It’s like that 2 for 1 joke people constantly make to you. This is the one time it applies. Beyond that, they haven’t shared much of anything.
Due to complications they were born at 32 weeks and spent exactly 6 weeks in the NICU. My largest worry, when they told me I was having to deliver so early, was that the kids would have major complications or be behind their whole life. We got extremely lucky and even with Charlotte being so far off the growth chart from the start, they are excelling.
Today is their 3rd birthday and it’s a rough one for numerous reasons. We are all muddling our way through various stages of quarantine/lockdowns right now. Two weeks ago, this weekend was going to be action-packed, now it’s an empty void with a lot of unknown variables. So, while trying to physically & mentally get through this without the kids knowing a thing, I’m also a little depressed because my babies are 3 years old. Time has passed so quickly and yet this exact moment feels like it’s dragging on forever.
I guess that’s the lesson to take from all this right now. This too shall pass and before you know it, it’s just a distant memory.
