Well we are on the countdown to my “baby” boys FIRST BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION! Our BIG celebration with lots of people will be in my mom & dad’s neck of the woods! It’ will be a “Baby Sesame Street” theme with lots of bright colors and special ways to commemorate our boys first year. Right now i’m working on a mini dvd presentation to highlight their year in pictures! I know….it can be a big undertaking. But I want to have something to look back on to say “yes, we survived and look how great our boys have turned out so far!”
I’m a little sad as I look back on the first couple of months we had our little newborn baby boys. Sad, because I don’t think I was in the right frame of mind- emotionally or physcially to REALLY take in all their newness, taking LOTS of pictures with just me and them, or taking in the awe of being a new mommy. I definetly plead “post partum meltdown” for my lack of enthusiasm.
Man, I really need God in flesh during those first few months! I am so thankful for people, people who love me so much that they took the time to not only pray for me but to love me with their actions. I needed others to hold my babies, to cook me a meal and to just be an ear to listen to my emotional babblings.
I feel more cohesive now compared to then. I defenitely know that the glue that keeps me is my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the awesome love and support of my husband, family and loving friends.
How do I anticipate this new year with my boys??? Well with Christ at my center and with a greater handle ( I think) on life as a mom of twins….it should be quite thrilling, exciting and of course GROWING!!!
