This blog is between sisters. But today on October 9th, there are two boys who deserve a mention. Our brothers are 9 & 10 years younger than us, so there is a generation of differences between us. Yet the sibling connection can survive anything…especially a generation gap.
A couple of months ago, I set to work knitting hats for these boys. Just because they are twins does not mean they are not unique. So two different hats for two different boys.
For Stephen (thank you pint-size model):
For Chris (thanks again mini-model):
I was determined to get both hats finished before mom left in late-September. I think the last stitch on the grey hat was knit 2 days before departure. So I was happy to hear that they were well received. I even got this picture this morning: the bottom was a Pinterest “look” we was going for, the top is our bro looking very Euro GQ.
So there you have it. Even though we can’t be there to celebrate with them today, I will never forget the day they were born. I was the hit of 3rd grade, with two of the cutest baby brothers imaginable.
So although, there is a special bond that sisters share and we will never know the bond that twins share, I know that they are lucky to have each other and we are so lucky to have them too. Happy Birthday boys! We love you!
