This was probably one day that Christen and Steve could not have imagined when their twins were first born. Three years ago, tiny O and tiny N entered the world on the WAY early side. They just couldn’t wait any longer to show their adorable faces. After 5 grueling months in the hospital, they came home with more appointments than any little being should ever have and strict instructions: keep them home, away from groups, and especially away from kids for the first two years of their lives while their immune system caught up. And that’s exactly what Christen and Steve did, taking every precaution to keep them as healthy as possible.
It has been my pleasure to get to know this family through my lens over the past 2+ years and I was honored to be able to capture their first “official” birthday party. Click here for a quick look back at our history together from the Fall 2011 to Winter 2013.
But here they are now, turning THREE years old, and getting to celebrate their birthday for the first time with all of their friends and family, complete with some of the NICU nurses and specialists that helped them in their journey! They had a cupcake-themed party at Sweet Bakery. The kids got to decorate their own cupcakes with frosting and candies of all kinds. Such a fun and certainly joyous occasion. Happy 3rd Birthday, O and N! It was a well-deserved sugar-filled, fun-filled, love-and-hugs-filled day.
Thanks so much for having me, Christen and Steve. Your party was a blast. O and N, the sweetest of birthdays to you and a happy, healthy fourth year! xo
