Happy Birthday Little Miracles

One year ago today is the day my life changed forever.  I would have never guessed seeing those two little faces for the first time would fill my life as much as it has. These boys are the reason for my life.  They are my purpose.  I can't believe they are a year old today. The time has flown and I'm not ok with it, but I guess I don't have a choice. Being able to be a mom has been the most wonderful, heartwarming experience.  I cherish every day I have with them.  These boys have completely stole my heart. 

We had their party yesterday. It was a complete success.  All the people that matter the most in their lives were there.  These boys are going to grow up with a great family and I love that for them.  They dug in to their smash cakes and hammed it up for everyone.  They didn't have much intereset in opening presents, but that's the other perk of being a mom.  You get to do it for them.  They had a great time playing with all their toys last night.  Here are a few pics from the party.  The ones with the boys actually in them are on my mother in laws camera, so I'll post those later.

I am so incredibly proud of these boys and can't wait to watch them grow up.  (slowly please)  They make every morning worth waking up at 5am.  I'm currently listening to Robert tickle Beckham and he is laughing like crazy.  Moments like these make me realize how blessed I am. There is nothing better than the sound of those boys.  I love them more than I could ever express.  Happy Birthday my little Monkey and little Monster.

1st Birthday Pics and a Surprise

I have so many pictures to post, but need to find the time.  Wait... I mean I need to stop going to bed at 7:30 and post them.  Until then these will have to do.  Nicole Hager did our maternity and newborn pictures.  We absolutely L-O-V-E her work.  So of course we called upon her to do the boys 1st year pics.  She is seriously amazing! Here are a couple that we put on their 1st Birthday invitations.  I will share the rest after the party.  I can't believe it's time for the party :(

Now for the surprise

There is a new (God Willing) Baby Baker coming January 12th.

This was a big surprise.  Of course we were not trying with 10 month old (at that time) twin boys.  We had talked about having a third child, but always wondered if we really would because of how expensive it would be.  I guess God made that decision for us.  I am almost 9 wks, so I still have a few more weeks to go before I feel somewhat safe.  I am sick again this time. It is nothing compared to the boys, but it is still miserable and 24 hours a day.  I officially resent woman who do not have morning sickness! Actually I worship you.  We are both freaking out about how we are going to do this financially.  It's one of those situations where you should trust God, but you just can't understand how he will make this work.  I stress about money as it is.  I know we will find a way though.  After all we have been through this is a huge blessing.
