Even though we knew a lot of stuff going in to the pregnancy and the early months of parenting, there are wonderful little things that surprise us every day. Watching the Things start to notice and interact with each other has been a beautiful revelation. Nap times and bed time will never be the same, but the past few days have been the most amazing preview of what's to come.
They make each other laugh all the time now, which has been so much fun. I never expected how much it would mean to me to watch their faces light up when they see each other, or how one will try to help when the other is upset. It's more than I could have ever imagined, and it's totally wonderful!
The babies are eight months old today, and tomorrow will be our first Mother's Day. I'm so excited for it, but I'm looking forward even more to the Mother's Days to come.
Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there! I hope you have a fantastic day! I'll admit that part of what I've asked for tomorrow is a nap--and I'm really looking forward to it!
