6 Months!

6 Months ago my babies looked like this:
So innocent and pure. Such little exposure to the world still starting to form their opinion on it. So tiny. Learning to do the necessities to survive: sucking, breathing, spitting up in Kaylie's case. Two little people who just minutes before were in my belly, now here in the flesh for me to hold in my arms. I never thought I could love someone so much when I first met them. Love at first site, it does exist.

Now 6 months later, although they are much bigger (about 3X their birth weights) and much more mobile (scooting and almost crawling), so many of those things from the beginning still hold true. They are still innocent and pure, still have little exposure to the world and all it entails (although more than just hours after birth), and I still love them more and more with every snuggle. From belly laughs to high pitched screeching fits, these two little people mean more to me than I could ever put into words, but they know... they know.

In 6 months, what have I learned about being a mother? To stop worrying about what I'm learning and just enjoy every "first" these two precious babies experience. Cherish each moment and remember there is always time for a snuggle.

PS. This picture also kicks off the restart of my Project 365. Check it out!
