Haztwins turn 7...

Today they turned 7 and I got a bit emotional....

How did this happen??

I wasn't the mom who cried when they turned 1..... because I secretly was thanking God that we made it through that first year still intact! I was counting the days until doing fun stuff  with them wasn't so much work that it wasn't actually that much fun.  And now we are there..... I can actually sit in the beach chair for a bit and watch them splash in the waves.  But it makes me wonder how long will it last.  How long will I still be the center of their universe?  I hope for quite some time to come...  

I'll never forget the tears that were shed in our struggles to have these 2 and how thankful I was when the nurse told us we were having twins.  Having twins meant never having to go through all of those struggles again.  And having twins has blessed me with some of the greatest friends that I could ever wish for.

Off to school with their birthday treats!
Today was a great day!  I was able to take them to Dunkin Donuts this morning to get treats and then see them off to school.  And I was able to surprise them with balloons at the bus stop this afternoon with Mom-mom (who usually picks them a few times a week)....



And when Jim got home we went out to dinner (our original plan had a few hiccups, but we recovered and had a great night)....


Today they turned 7 and I simply am amazed at the young people they are becoming.  They have their moments for sure, but they can also be the most thoughtful and amazing individuals when they want to be.  I wish I could have captured them exchanging gifts that they had selected for each other this morning.  They were definitely excited to be receiving gifts, but they were equally if not more excited to GIVE their carefully selected gift.  There were so many smiles and hugs between these two this morning and it warmed my heart.  I'm so thankful that I get to be their mom!

Thank you to everyone who wished these two a happy birthday today.  If you've been in our life for a little while or forever, know that I am thankful to have you in our support system.  We are truly blessed!
