These days the twins are so busy on the go, it is rare we get to take the time to just sit back and stare at them. That is why the two pictures below are my latest favorites of them.
The girls have been growing so quickly and accomplishing so much lately that is it hard to sit back and just look at how amazing they are, even while asleep. We may never know why God decided to bless us with twins, and even though there are days that we are unsure how we will make it until their 8pm bedtime, we are both excited and thrilled that He did give us this challenge.
All 3 of our girls will grow and do amazing things. Things we have a difficult time even imagining/dreaming for them at this age. None of us know what the future will hold, but I believe we have a good idea of where it's headed. And the future for our 3 girls is big, bright, and amazing. We are so blessed it's incredible.
I can hardly believe it, but I was able to braid Brooke's hair! They are two of the tiniest braids I have ever seen and my Aunt Sue joked that she is sure I put in hair extensions! But it's true, it's true! It was no easy task, which I why I didn't attempt it on Aspen yet! Brooke LOVES to have her shoulders massaged and so in order to successfully braid her hair I would have to massage... braid... massage... braid... you get the point! Look at them though, they are SO cute!
Two creative ways to strap in rambunctious twins who try to escape from the stroller....
Two appointment slots back to back... (Even though they only use one of them!)
Two foot scrapings...
Two bags of blueberries, crackers, strawberries, cheesepuffs, and desperately 4 suckers!
And finally... two diagnosis of Dyshidrotic eczema leading to two prescriptions, two prescription copays, two X two applications two times a day (which equals 8 if you're counting) and way more than two diaper changes throughout the day.
P.S. All this before 2 pm of course. :) I should have put more into the flexible spending account this year!
Hannah has a collection of pillows, similar to most woman's collection of shoes! :) Only her obsession is a little worse than shoes. She is obviously trying to use every single pillow at the same time!
Aspen is showing some natural talent for music. She can definitely keep a beat! We'll see where it all goes!
And Brooke thinks that there is nothing better than morning cartoons while sitting on top of a warm dog in the warm sunbeam. What a good girl Sadie is!
AKA... Mom and Dad. They say it's about the journey and not the destination. We're not sure exactly where our journey is taking us, but we are excited to go along on this ride together with the beautiful family God has blessed us with.
A place for those near and away to see Hannah grow and exceed our expectations every day! She's smart and she's bright, she's beautiful it's true! She'll make you smile and want to spend a day in her shoes! She's adventerous and willing to try most things new... Just check out her blog and she'll continue to amaze you!
Aspen and Brooke
What began as a shocking surprise, has turned out to be double the blessing. The twins are two very different, very similar little girls who brighten the light in our home. It is incredible to watch them grow and learn together while striving to be individuals as well. What you may see as a challenge is a piece of cake to us now!
aka "Tater" A little girl who is already changing the world one smile, hug, and kiss at a time. It is apparent that Taylor was created to do amazing things and continues to impress us on a daily basis! Our family is now complete but no where near finished. Girl number 4 and blessed to have 3 older sisters who adore her just as much as she adores them!
