Of all my kids, these two have challenged me the most. They are bright, curious, active, delightful, and simply amazing. I have so many wonderful memories . . .
The day I thought I was losing a pregnancy and instead found out I was having twins -- I couldn't sleep that night I was so excited.
The way that pregnancy was SO uncomfortable the last few months and how desperate I was to be delivered.
The way the older three (ages 5, 3, and 2) embraced these little babies, and how I went from a mom with three kids close in age to a mom with my hands full.
The way they loved each other and started to interact at an early age.
That first, amazing year watching these two girls develop their own unique personalities.
And the way I love to watch them grow up together.
Age 2 (the year I barely survived!):
(they might kill me for this photo later -- but this epitomizes what that year was like)
