Today is the girls fourth birthday. I can't believe it was just four years ago and I didn't know them yet. I was so full of excitement and worry and anxiety. Every day that passed was a day closer to meeting my daughters.
Now we are a four year old family. We have been together for four amazing years. There have been so many ups and downs, joys and failures, pain and perfection... it's almost hard to imagine we fit all that into four years. I am not sure how we have done so much living in such a short period of time.
What I do know is that I am a much better person for being their mom. It was four years ago today that I became a Mom for the first time. It was the first time that I could call someone my daughter. It was one of the most amazing days of my life.
Happy birthday girls!
Every year on their birthday I take a picture of them right as they get up. It is the final moments of the year they are passing and I love the tradition.
