... before the Twincesses are ONE!! Ava and Emma will be 1 in just under an hour! I am not going to lie, I have been a bit of a wreck all day. I just can't believe how quickly this past year has flown bye and I am missing the days where my babies were tiny and sleeping swaddled in their co-sleeper. I truly look forward to each and every moment and milestone with my kids. I can't wait to see Jackson get on the school bus one day. I eagerly await the girls taking their first steps, saying "Jackson" for the first time, and so much more! But it all happens way too fast for me. And maybe a part of it, is that Ava and Emma are most likely the last babies I will have? I was emotional when Jackson turned 1 also, but not like this. I was in line at the party store tonight and I found myself holding back tears while looking up at the balloons I was picking up. When I got home, the kids were in bed and Rick was in the kitchen, I handed him the balloons and started to cry. He looked at me confused and said "Tanya, you do realize that we are keeping them, right... I mean you're acting like we have to give them back or something".
I decorated their high chairs tonight, I am sure they will be very excited to see the balloons. Jackson made the girls each a birthday card, with some help from Rick and they came out really cute! I need to get some sleep, we have a big day planned tomorrow and I want to get up early and make a big breakfast for my BIRTHDAY girls!
