So, today is a BIG day for my family. It marks a huge milestone for us. I know I haven't shared anything personal here before but today is an exception ;)
Today my twin sons turn one year old!!
It certainly is cause for celebration - especially after all we went through to have them. They are miracles. Fact.
Of course in the midst of all the partying, I am weepy because my boys are no longer the ity bity tiny babies they were when we brought them home from the hospital. Time sure moved at warp speed this past year! I have loved every snuggle, every kiss, every nap with both babes on my chest, every new discovery, every adorable coo, every waking and sleeping hour - even at 2, 4, and 5 a.m. - I have honestly loved every precious minute!!
