I am very big into family, and I have a big family as well. 5 brothers and sisters (I'm the 5th of 6). 14 nieces and nephews (R Russell Patrick II joined us 10/13/13). 5 great-nephews & 6 great-nieces (Brooklyn Grace joined us 10/2/13). And no, with that many family members, I do not keep up with birthdays very well. Not well at ALL! Even with a master list on my fridge.
I'm also married. My husband and I got married here in San Antonio at the historic Sheraton Gunter Hotel downtown. And we are the proud parents of a 12 year old Alaskan Husky named Moo and three 1 year old kittens: Wicket, Willow, and Winter.
Like all Texas moms, I made my kid pose in the bluebonnets.
Twin reticulated giraffes were born May 10th of this year at the Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch. Wasswa, a female, was born first weighing 95 pounds and was 4.5 feet tall. Nakato, a male, was born shortly after, weighing 125 pounds and was 5.5 feet tall.
They are the only living set of twins and the second reported set of living twins born in the United States!
They are doing well and living with the other 6 giraffes, including their dad, Marshall.
They're absolutely adorable and you can read more about them and see video and pictures of them HERE.
