4 Years Old!

*This is a long post!*

It will almost make you sad if you think too much about how fast time goes. But today is a happy day.
My twins turn 4 years old! I cannot imagine my life without these two little blessings!
So very opposite, and so much fun!
I almost didn't post this photo! Me at full capacity! I think I was trying to blend into the bush.
We had went out for a walk, apparently when I still could. 
At the last part of the pregnancy I couldn't make it very far. =)
 I went full term with them, 37 weeks. Don't slap me through the computer, but honestly it was the easiest labor. I had been sitting dilated to a 4 for a week, so when I checked into the hospital that saturday I almost immediately received an epidural. So I had no pain, and was able to have them without c-section. Although Miss Blair decided to be a bit stubborn, hmm still is, and came out feet first.
Jude had to visit the NICU for a few days and then we were home with two healthy babies. What a blessing! I will never forget, that I thought having them home was a piece of cake. You know at first all they do is eat and sleep. It wasn't until they got a little older that the reality of having almost triplets set in. But that is a different story, for a different day. =)
Blair was such a good baby, the best baby. She was a self soother, and was almost always in a happy mood. She cracks me up, she is on this kick of wanting to be just like mommy. If we go out to our favorite little cafe she asks if I am getting a tea, and if I am, them she wants one too. If Josh offers her gum she asks if I am having some before she answers if she wants a piece. It makes me smile. She has her daddy wrapped around her finger and adores him as much as he adores her. She laughs at everything he says! LOL Makes me laugh just thinking about it!

 Jude on the other hand was a grump, but one look at his sweet smile made it all better.
And I know this is going to sound crazy, but he had that mysterious man thing going on from the get go.
You know the kind of thing that makes you want to be around them all the time. Something that just pulls you to them. He can still be a little turkey, but as soon as he flashes you that million dollar smile, you can't help but want to eat him up.




 Ugh, three butts in diapers! How did I ever survive that!?
LOL

 Never mind that Jude has on a pink blanket. You know it was whatever was on hand kind of a household. I promise he never wore her clothes, though I can't say the same thing for her. = )


 I'll never forget finding her in here!
 Did I say grumpy? hmmm just a little!
 Blair!
Eskimo kiss...
And my favorite photo of all time!

Happy Birthday Blair and Jude! What blessings you are in my life!

I enjoyed everything about this post. Such a great reflection. I cannot believe how cute you were while preggo with twins. SERIOUSLY, you just had a basketball. Happy Birthday to your litte guys!

First, it should be illegal to look that hot when pregnant with twins. Second, how adorable are those baby pics! I love babies so much that I have a hard time resisting the urge to plant a smooch on their cheeks-that doesn't go over too well with strangers. LOL!

Happy birthday to your babies!

Children are the best thing the world. Happy Birthday to them. What a blessing to raise such beautiful kids.

Tina said...

Wow! You've been blessed, girl! And must've had some kind of super-natural powers to get through the earlier stages with 3 of them in diapers! Reminds me of this post I've been thinking about for days: http://www.evotional.com/2010/08/holy-complications.html

Lindsay said...

Happy Birthday to your gorgeous babies! :)

BC said...

Wow, what a great post! Happy Birthday to the twins!!! I am AMAZED you were still walking around at that late point of your pregnancy and looking that good!

What fun pictures from over the years...love the ones of both of them in their crib together. How far apart in age are they from their older brother? They look pretty close which is why I'm guessing it felt like triplets at times. ha! I only have two in diapers and I thought that was a lot!!! WOW!!

Have a wonderful day celebrating!

Happy B-day to your babies! They are all so cute! I cannot believe you were able to take care of three little ones at once when the twins came along! You must be a super mom!

KimH said...

Ok...so I am reading this post and tearing up!!! I can't believe how quickly time has flown by and how I can remember almost all of these pics! I remember the day they were born, I was in Tulsa heading South to Andy's family reunion when Josh called to give me the wonderful news. I feel very blessed to have been involved from the very minute you called to tell me you were having a GIRL oh and a BOY too! The girls and I were shopping in Old Navy and we were jumping up and down. You inspire me...watching you mother your children has been absolutely a blessing to me and my girls. I pray that you enjoy every minute of your day and that all three continue to be healthy and Jesus loving kids. Happy Birthday to YOU and your Precious Peaks!!!

Happy birthday to your darling twins!! You looked beautiful at 37 weeks! We all could only hope to glow like that.

Nikki said...

Happy Birthday to the twins! Such cute pictures. It all goes by too fast.

nikinikinine said...

ah! Why would you hide that pic? You looked amazing. Although I know what it feels like to look down and wonder what the heck happened to your former self. Although, from the looks of it you've recovered wonderfully. Hopefully my own recovery goes as smoothly.

Happy Birthday Blair and Jude! You'll have to give me some twin resources when you have time to breathe, we're just looking at strollers and PNP's now...
