Happy Birthday Madeline & Aidan!

Today my little babies, well not so little as they were 8lbs and 7lbs when they were born, turn 2 years old.
Where did two years go already? It’s time for time to slow down a little! I feel like I’m going to go to bed one night and wake up and you will be turning 18! It’s been a fun two years and because of you two I’ve learned a lot more about myself. Madeline I love that you want to do everything your sister can even though some thing you just can’t do yet. I’m thrilled that you want to go on the potty because you big sister does it too. I love that you love to get and give nice big hugs in the morning and always say “Good Morning Mommy” when I come in the room. And even though you want so much to be like Isabelle, you are your own little person. You are loving, kind, smart, thoughtful and tough. You will be a great protector of your sister and brother I think. Aidan, you are my little boy. When I found out I was having a boy, I was terrified. Up to that point I only knew about girls. But when I held you for the first time I was in love and not worried at all about having a boy. You were so tiny and you liked to hold my finger when we cuddled. You really liked to cuddle and you still do today. I love that you like to sit and snuggle with your Mommy. I love that you are totally into trains and cars. I love how hard you worked to crawl and to walk. I love that you always need to know where your sisters are. And when you meet new people you always introduce your sisters first. You are a kind, gentle, smart, funny little guy who stole mommy’s heart.

I hope you both have a wonderful birthday today! We love you very much and even though I was terrified of having twins and wasn’t sure how I was going to manage, I have three beautiful and wonderful children. It’s been an amazing 2 years, here’s to more! Love you lots!

Parenting and adulting is hard. There is no manual. No volume control. No self cleaning house and self refilling fridge. This is my story of navigating through the ups and downs of our crazy-wonderful life.

  1. Leanne, these blogs are your legacy to your children. Make sure you keep every word you have written for them to read and appreciate when they get older and I’m sure one day they will read these words to their children. You are wonderful parents. Cherish your babies.
