E.T.A.

Twenty-five seconds apart they began,
to lives most anticipated,
baby girls as they were told
and less than nine months they had waited.
Baby Girl #1, her shoulders were wider
than her “kid” sister floating beside her,
she “paved” the way and with the next slightest push,
her twin sister quickly arrived with a “SWOOSH”!

~Process notes – My niece gave birth to twins in short order. She couldn’t even catch her breath between them before they were both sucking air outside of mom’s constraints. Domino’s doesn’t even deliver that quickly! Rapid arrivals, both!
