I get two common questions when I am out and about with the three kids. One question I usually receive, "Are they twins?" If I'm in a rush I say, "Yes," but if it is someone that I will have a long conversation with I tell them their special story of how they are five days apart and God placed them together. I never want anyone to ever think that I'm tired of telling their story, because I'm definitely not! I witnessed and got be be apart of a miracle and I want to tell everyone of God's faithfulness and He hears all of our cries and knows our heart!
Our youngest daughter was also born with red hair and then I realized my husband and I have a very similar gene, we can both make beautiful redheads! " For Christmas my mother-in-law got me this adorable book called, Little Redheads Across America. It has pictures of redheads from every state. I have already e-maiedl the author of the book to see if my two little redheads could have their picture in the next book or on her site.
I love the page on, "How Did You Get Your Red Hair?" The gene comes from the grandparents. It is funny that both Chevy and I don't have any redheaded relatives, except my cousins daughter, so it must skip generations. I must tell you that both my grandma and Ryan's grandma prayed for a redhead. There prayers were answered and I just love that they have red hair.
