This day marks a special day in our lives! One year ago today we brought James and Audrey home from the hospital! As I've thought about that day today I just have to smile and say "thank you Lord for helping us survive!" We were so happy to have them home, we weren't frightened by their size or their constant need of our attention for their survival. Everyone was so surprised to hear that I stayed home with them all day by myself for the first 2 days but I wanted it that way. We had already missed so much time together. That first week I was too delirious with happiness to realize just how much work they were going to be. Oh innocence is bliss!
I'm glad we didn't have to pay for our water the first year of their life! Between all the bottle washings, clothes washings and "Jon" washings we would have spent a fortune!
Looking around I see how much my life has changed in this short year. I use to blog while they were taking one of their two morning naps in their bouncy seats at my feet! Now, over my shoulder, Audrey is screaming because she can't figure out how to put her shoe on and James is trying his best to climb on to his fire truck! I fixed my last bottle last Thursday night and I can't decide if I'm happy or sad about that. My pocket book screams "HAPPY" but the mama in me screams "SAD". Ah well, such is life!
