Happy Birthday boys!

D: On this day, one year ago, you joined our family to make it complete. I had no idea what my life was missing, until you arrived. I did not know how it felt to truly surrender. I did not know I could feel such pride. I hadn’t an idea of what self-sacrifice really was. I hadn’t truly known the strength or intensity of my love.

On this day, one year ago, you welcomed us into your world. It has been such a pleasure getting to know each of you and your remarkably charming and distinctly different personalities. From birth, you have been best friends and I have enjoyed watching that friendship flourish. You are always making us laugh, but you especially crack each other up! You love each other as much as you love and need us. As I watch you play and crawl around a room, you are always turning behind to make sure the other is right there with you. In one year, you have taught me more about friendship and family than I have learned my whole lifetime. Even through the difficult times, I thank God everyday that I am blessed with twins.

Today you turn 1 year old and we celebrate the children whom you have become. You are both so strong and intelligent and funny; I am so proud of who you are. Whenever I am with you, you each make me smile for a new reason. In the next year I look forward to learning so much more from you about life, laughter, sheer joy and happiness.

On your birthday, remember that all our friends and family love you and wish you the best birthday two little boys can have. We love you!

Happy Birthday, Deuce!

Happy birthday, boys! It's been such a treat to read about you, especially as it was something of a preview for us, being about six months behind you. Hope you have a great birthday! Love, Daniel, Rebecca, and their mom...

I have been following your blog for a while now after getting your site from a family member who knows you. We have 5 month old twin girls! I appreciate your blog so much as it has provided me with helpful and useful advice. I wanted to wish your boys (and you too!) a happy birthday.
