We knew it would come. We knew it had to happen. We just didn't know that it would come this quickly.
When you struggle with fertility issues, time stands still. A year of trying seems like an eternity. Multiply that by 4 years and you've got our lifetime of pain and heartache. Then that silver lining comes. You hear those famous words from your Dr. to confirm your deepest desires, and if you are blessed beyond belief like we were, you hear the sweetest phrase of all..."It looks like twins"!
This year has been a whirlwind. Once those famous words are spoken, your life moves full speed ahead. Little did we know that once are precious ones arrived, our life would forever move at mock speed...and we wouldn't change it for the world!
For those of you who have not meet our sweet ones, they are our everything. They can make your day with their two tooth grins and melt you heart with their cuddles and wet kisses. And today, they are 1.
What happened to our year? Trying to savor every moment and yet it has still gone by too quickly. Hanging on to every sound, every milestone, every sip of every late night bottle and yet, time does not stop. It keeps on going, seeming to rob us of every precious moment that we long to drown in.
But we know it is for something better. To watch these wonderful children grow into toddlers. To begin to say "I love you momma & dada". To begin to walk. To go to school and grow into the young adults God has already designed them to be. This is what we have to long for and look forward to. And again...we can't wait!
Happy 1st birthday Keaton and Happy 1st birthday Elliot. You are our favorite two people in all of the world. We are so crazy about you that we can't stand it sometimes. (Even when you won't settle down and end up sneaking into our bed for some late night lovin!) You have grown so much in 1 year and we can not wait to see how your life stories begin to unfold as you grow into God special creations. You are and forever will be miracles and gifts to us from God. He is so good. Always, ALWAYS remember that! God is so good.
We LOVE you! Momma & Daddy
