FOOTPRINTS

These are Josh and Jake's footprints, taken  the day after they were born (May 12, 2002). It was a fluke that the  prints were even made -- it was Mother's Day, and the ICU nurses put  them on a card for the ICU-bound Mommy, who had yet to meet her babies. 

 

Because  the prints are small enough to fit on a business card, they've become  somewhat of an iconic image of Jake & Josh's tiny beginning. 


Here's  a clever twist on the original footprint made by Josh's teachers during  winter 2006: His current foot is the snowman, and his original print is  another "baby" snowman.
