My sweet little one year old babies! You will turn two in two days, and I just can't believe it! Time really does go by so fast. I have had the absolute best year of my life! Being able to stay home every day with you has been the best job I have ever had. I just wish there was a way to relive each day with you over and over again, even the tough days! Over the last year, you have both developed the most aborable and loving personalities. I have so many favorite things, but I'll list just a few here..
I love when I walk into your room in the morning and we say "momma" and "bubba" back and forth until you giggle
I love when I put you in your car seat and you reach down for your jeep and say, "jeep, please"
I love just seeing you walk around, remembering how much joy I had when you took your first steps
I love when you point out every Jeep on the road
I love when you ask for sissy when she's not around
I love that you love hats and glasses
I love that you have no fear- no fear of the ocean or the pool, or jumping off the couch, or saying hi to new people, or trying new things
I love that if you get hurt or scared, you cry out my name
I love that you poke your lips out and give the sweetest kisses ever
I love that you pretend the laundry basket is a boat and sing "row row row your boat"
I love when you pretend to be a puppy and stick your tongue out and pant and bark
I love that you are my son, my heart, my sweet baby boy and one of my greatest joys
I love when I walk into your room in the morning, and you quickly lay back down and say "night, night" while you giggle
I love that in the mornings the first thing you ask about is your dada and bubba
I love that you say hi to everyone you meet! You bring everyone around you so much joy
I love that every time you see a picture of s bunny you hop up and down and say "hop hop hop"
I love when we do the hokey pokey together
I love that you play patty cake with your own feet while you're in your car seat
I love the way you burst with excitement every time you see a puppy
I love that you love your colors and tell me what color a toy is when you pick it up
I love that you know all of your friends names at church, and you always hug whoever is crying
I love that you love to read, and that you'll bring me a book and sit in my lap and try to finish the lines of the book for me
I love when you say "hold you, hold you" and "snuggle me"- it makes my heart melt!
I love that you are my daughter, my little best friend, my sunshine, and one of my greatest blessings
A friend on Facebook posted a quote from Spurgeon last week that made me sob tears of thankfulness.
"If the Lord does not pay in silver, He will in gold; and if He does not pay in gold, He will in diamonds. If He does not give you precisely what you ask for, He will give you that which is tantamount to it, and that which you will greatly rejoice to receive in lieu thereof."
Maddox and Madeline, you are my diamonds. You are precisely what God had planned for us, and we rejoice in your sweet little lives every single day! As sad as I am that you're getting older and turning two, I am so excited to see what God is going to continue to do in your lives. I love seeing you learn and grow, and I know the next year is going to be crazy and amazing! I love you more than you will ever know!!
