Birthday Celebrations :)

Two Years

They made it
   We made it 

Definitely reason to celebrate :)

With Little S and Little L's first birthday I thought I would feel a huge sense of relief that we had survived a year, but due to various reasons I didnt feel like that in the slightest. The Second Birthday however was a different story, it was so much more than a sense of relief - it was really FUN! 

Two is really such a fabulous age :) Everything is exciting! They have no preconceived notions of what a 'good' birthday should be like so anything is just a BIG treat. They loved having their family and friends together, mixed with a bit of sugar. Big L was the model of a gracious older brother- sweet boy he is :) 
And we felt so blessed:
To have such amazing kids
To have been able to get through the past two years together
To have such great support
To have family and friends who love our kids 

I am really looking forward to this next year!
