As of late, the husband and I have been giving each high fives, looking at each other in amazement that we made it through the twin’s first year. YeaH-Hoo!!
Our little guys are developing their own distinct personalities, they are busy little bundles of cuddles and kisses and giggles, and we are enjoying the… let’s just say, the fruits of our labour… literally.
Being blessed with children has given our previously fun-filled, carefree, happy-go-lucky, laissez-faire lives true meaning. Ha! I’m being facetious, but in all honesty, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: what did we do with our lives before children?!
This weekend has been wonderful… my mum visiting from California, friends dropping off gifts for the little guys, some new and some pre-loved items, and having both sides of our family altogether at Grandpa Jim-Jim and Grandma Deb-Deb’s house, complete with homemade triple-chocolate cake muffins with little monkey faces… for our little monkeys.
The hubby and I were in a daze of loving family, wrapping paper and bright and noisy toys and I love him even more for having the presence of mind to thank our amazing family for helping us make it through the first year. We couldn’t have done it without everyone.
As they say, it take a village to raise a family.
And it takes a family to raise a family.
