Nine Months In. Nine Months Out.

It was about this time last year that I began my bedrest with the twins. I can't believe how much has changed in just a year. And how quickly. Every parent tells you that it's impossible to put into words how much you love your kids and it couldn't be more true. Just when I think I couldn't love them any more, I do. It's like every day they out-cute the day before. Don't misunderstand me, it has been an adjustment and some days I think, "Oh my, how many more hours until Jim gets home from work...I'm dying here." But growing up with the twins is by far the best thing I have ever been a part of. I am the luckiest Mom.

Learning by Example

It is so amazing how fast the twins are learning about the world around them. My Mom and I took Alex & Ava in the backyard the other afternoon and decided to let them have some fun with the hose. One sip from the hose in front of Ava was all it took before she grabbed the hose and took a drink herself. Reminds you, as a parent, how important all of your actions are. So if you see my beautiful daughter drinking from a hose, looking oh so lady-like, I can proudly think, yeah I taught her that when she was just 8 months old...
