Can't Wait!

I've been quite the blogging bum lately, I know. But January for us has been full of sickies, new teeth, doctor appointments, sleepless nights, first birthday party planning, and I could go on and on. Tomorrow is finally the big birthday baa-aash! Their actual birthday is next Friday on the 12th, but we are celebrating tomorrow. As I sit here on their first birthday party eve, I can't help but get a little emotional thinking about the past year. I can remember when they were so tiny and still in the hospital all the "can't waits" we used to talk about. "I can't wait to hold my babies with no strings attached." (code for all the monitor wires, canulas, etc.) "I can't wait to bring them all home to Baton Rouge." "I can't wait til they start smiling and laughing." "I can't wait til they call me mama." "I can't wait til they lift their arms for me to pick them up." "I can't wait for their first birthday party!" Oh wow, we have come so far. And now that we are here, we have a whole new set of "can't waits." But really when it comes down to it, I can wait. I will wait. I want to wait.

What a year.
