ORDINARY MIRACLES

Today I'm celebrating ordinary miracles on an extraordinary anniversary.

January 21, 2010 holds a very special place in my heart...

Exactly one year ago today, Nick and I watched the monitor in surgery at Mayo Clinic at the exact moment as our two embryos were being injected into my uterus. Little did we know BOTH of those two precious embryos would attach and grow into our beautiful, precious, twin boys that we hold in our arms today! Our dreams and prayers would come true, after 3 years, 3 months, and 18 days… (but who's counting??)



Dear Elijah & Will,

One year ago today you began your life inside of me. As your daddy and I waited 12 days after the Embryo Transfer Surgery to find out if you were there, we imagined what our lives could be like with you in it. We dreamed of our little family and all the joy we would have together.

And now, just one year later, we are celebrating the miracles of YOU. You are both such sweet angels, so very different from each other, but so full of the same love and joy. I'd be lying if I said you didn't drive me crazy from time to time, (hey, cut me some slack, two babies at the same time is challenging!) and I'd really love a full night's sleep someday (I'm highly doubting that will ever happen again) but I love you, nonetheless...every second of every day! :) No matter if it's a good day or a bad day, I give thanks and praise for you. I knew God had a plan for our family, and you, dear Elijah, and dear Will ARE IT. I'll spend the rest of my life thanking God for the blessings of you and the amazing gift of experiencing being a mother.

I love you my little E-Man and little Willie Wonkey. (And no, I'm not apologizing for giving you nicknames you'll probably dislike in the future!)

I am so honored to be your mommy!
I LOVE YOU!
