Can This Really Be?

Are my sweet, tiny, bright eyed, 3 pound babies turning 2 tomorrow?

How did this happen?

Where did the past two years go?

I know I have lots of memories of all the amazing things you have accomplished over the past 2 years. But when I close my eyes, I remember like yesterday the day you were born. I remember holding you for the first time and sobbing uncontrollably with joy that overfilled my heart. I can see you trying so hard to focus on my face as I spoke to you and feeling like you knew I was your mommy. I remember waking up smiling to the sounds of your cries when we first brought you home. I still couldn't believe you were mine and you were home. Your first smile, your first laugh, your first night you slept alone in your big girl bed. They all seem like yesterday in my head. Now you are running all over the place with so much excitement and fascination at the world before you. I feel like I just closed my eyes and here we are. My babies are not babies anymore. You are toddlers. Little people. Beautiful little girls. My sweet little babies you will always be.
