Happy Birthday!

May 16, 2008

Today is rainy and gloomy, but a year ago it was warm and sunshine poured down from the sky as my contractions started, a sign of the two new lives soon to enter the world. Today, a year ago Duncan and Owen were born!

I want to take a moment and reflect on the things I love about you both:


  • Your hearty laugh
  • The way you bump heads with me and smile, making a little cooing noise
  • Your sparkly smile
  • Your one dimple
  • Your independent spirit
  • The way you clap your hands all the time


  • The way you love to be with me everywhere I go–even if it’s a few steps away!
  • Your pudgy soft baby cheeks
  • The way you crawl so fast and so funny, like a little puppy!
  • Your big blue eyes
  • The new “growling” noises you’re making
  • Cuddling up with you when you’re tired

Happy Birthday my sweet boys! The year has been a whirlwind of change, growth, joy, and delight for us all. I’m so thankful to the Lord for you both!

*If you’re new to my blog, you can read their birth story here if interested.

    Happy Birthday, sweet boys!! And, congratulations to you, Josh and Danielle…making it through the first year w/ any baby, let alone twins, is a HUGE occasion to celebrate God’s kindness and faithfulness to us, at least in our home!!! 🙂
