I can't believe they are 6 months already! This time has flown by! It really seems like I just gave birth to them. As you get older, time speeds up. I think it speeds up again after you have kids. I remember when I was little and I asked my mom how long until Christmas. It was 2 months away, and that seemed like an eternity! Even 1 hour was a very long time. Now, 1 hour is nothing. And every day my girls are growing and changing. Sad, in a way, but it is a reminder to slow down and enjoy the moments. I also look forward to seeing them grow up. They have their whole lives ahead of them and that is so exciting for me.
Now, as I think about this, I'm tearing up because a little over a year ago I really thought I might never get to experience this. I'm so thankful that I do get to experiences this- and with twins! I will never, ever for a minute take for granted what I have. I know some people posted before I got pregnant that the infertility would make it more special, and it has. I don't think anyone should have to go through infertility ever, but motherhood is definitely something I do not take for granted and it does seem all that more special. And getting pregnant and having healthy babies is really a miraculous thing. I'm still in awe that I grew my two girls inside me.
Now some pictures!
Sofia was in the jumperroo and Maya was in the crib. I look up and see:
