4 Months Later

I can't believe it's been 4 months since I gave birth to these beautiful angels. Time really does fly!

The twins are so big, it's unreal! I love seeing them learn new things and I love hearing all their coos and giggles and squeals of excitement. I love seeing their little smiles and they brighten my day every morning. I could be in the worse mood, but the second I see their tiny, adorable faces, it makes it all better. How can you get frustrated or upset at these tiny little human beings? Everything they do is so cute, even when they are crying and screaming at 1, 2, 3, and 4 a.m.

It's still incredible to me that these two little people depend on me for so much. It's unreal to me! How can I, who can barely take care of myself at times, be responsible for two infants who need so much from me? Somehow, it all seems to work out though. I never thought Frank and I would be able to support one baby, let alone TWO! With the price of diapers, formula, wipes, clothes, car seats, strollers, cribs, pack and plays, bouncy seats, swings...the list goes on and on! How will we ever do it, I wondered all through my pregnancy. And now, here we are, 4.5 months later, and we are DOING IT. They don't have all new stuff, but most of what they do have is either in brand new condition or is new that we have bought since they have been born. They always have (clean) clothes on their backs, clean diapers on their bums, and good food in their belly.

Our goal is to simply give our children the best life possible, and that doesn't mean giving them the best, brand name things and all designer labels. It simply means loving them with all of our heart and soul, and doing as much as we physically can for them and helping to mold them into beautiful, strong, successful adults.
