Happy 5th Birthday!

Jacob and Jillian are 5!! Wow, I can't believe it, I remember when they were just babies thinking they would NEVER grow up:) Being a mom of twin infants is HARD! I think back and have a hard time remembering much of anything that first year...good thing I kept a journal and took pictures, to help jog my memory! Now they sleep through the night, eat by themselves, are potty trained, go to preschool, ride a two wheeler with out training wheels, can bathe/shower themselves, play outside without constant supervision (I even let them go friends houses by themselves:) Jillian takes ballet and Jacob plays soccer, and the list goes on... As I look over the list I feel a sense of accomplishment! I remember when they were babies wondering what this day would feel like, what their personalities would be, how it would feel to have them so independent. Let me tell you it feels GREAT! Do I miss the days of cuddly babies...yes! Do I miss getting 2-3 hours of sleep total a night..NO! Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't change the past five years for anything, everything happened the way it was suppose to...Life is good!

  1. They have gotten so big! I saw your kids with your husband at Burger King a few weeks ago and Jacob and Claire were so big! Jillian was still her tiny little cute self!
