The Day Two Miracles Were Created

This day one year ago was one of the most miraculous days of my life. As of this time a year ago my boys were created. I remember walking in to the clinic that morning with so many fears. Would they get enough eggs? Would they fertilize? Would we have a baby at the end of this? They retrieved 13 eggs that day. 10 fertilized. Two of those eggs are my beautiful amazing little boys. It’s amazing how God picked them out. Only two eggs survived and were put back in me and to know those created this HUGE blessing in my life is breathtaking. It’s an emotion that I cannot explain. Even though IVF was a crazy ride I love the fact that we know the exact day our boys were made. Not many can say that. Today is a day to celebrate what an amazing God we serve. He knew what this would bring us. He reserved these boys just for Robert and I. What better gift in life can you ask for! I literally tear up with happiness every time I think of those cute little boys. My life is so rich and I only have God to thank for that. They are what make my world go round.

On a different note Beckham roled over for the first time last night. I was so excited to actually witness it. My biggest fear is that they would do all these things at daycare. Gosh I love them!

The Boys are Growing

I have been an absolutely horrible blogger. I feel like life is just flashing before my eyes! The boys are getting so big. When did this happen? I am loving every minute with them. Brody laughed out loud for the first time this weekend and is so close to rolling over from his stomach to back. It's so funny as a mom to sit there and cheer on your 4 month old to roll over. It's so exciting though. Beckham has really started developing his own personality. He is my fit throwing back archer. He is going to be a quiet trouble maker. He will be laying there screaming and then out of nowhere stop and smile. It's the cutest thing ever! My love for these boys grows daily. I don't even know how that is possible, but it is. I officially have to watch Beckham in his swing. Here is a pic of why.

This was during one of his fits. He has gotten really good at those lately. They are still really good babies for the most part though. They slept in their cribs for the first time Friday night. It lasted till about 4am then they were back in our room and haven't slept in their since. I'm still having a really hard time letting them be that far away from me. I don't feel like I can protect them.

These boys love each other so much already. Here is a picture to prove it. I have a million just like this.

Here are just a few more to show you how big they have gotten. SO. IN. LOVE.
