6 Months!

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!

Just curious, but how do you know it's *more* special because of the infertility? If you haven't had children without it, then what can you compare to, to know it's "more" special.

Adorable girls...

Oh jeez.

Sure, I can't compare it, but when you struggle to get something for a while it is more special to you than if you just get it without a lot of trouble.

There are also plenty of moms who do take it for granted, and I know that anyone pregnant after infertility will never take it for granted.

IT is special for anyone, some moms don't realize how special it is. Some do, but if you have had to struggle, it makes it that much more special-*to that person*

Those pictures are too cute!

BTW...I don't know if you can say that it's less special without infertility, but you can certainly say that getting something that you never thought you'd get makes it extra special! I agree...stalker!

Me thinks your anonymous stalker either needs to come out of hiding and identify themselves or buzz off and find something to do. Anyone who feels the need to post only to say something negative needs better things to do with their time. Get a life.

LOVE the peek shot...that's classic.

They are growing so fast and getting so big! They look like they each have their own little personalities! They look great Heather- it is hard to believe where everything was a year ago, time does go by so quickly! Sending you lots of love and hugs for those little ones
