As I sit in my recliner, thinking about all that I need to get done during the few precious hours that both babies are sleeping, I am overwhelmed with love for these little fellas. I'm not going to lie, I am EXHAUSTED. I don't remember a time in my life when I have been this tired before. Between diaper changes, outfit changes, feedings, bottle sterilizing, and pumping it's hard to fit much else in. Yesterday I was particularly tired. I hadn't got much sleep the night before and my house needed a good cleaning. I had just got the boys down and was taking a little break before jumping into cleaning and getting ready for the day. I was listening to the country channel on the satellite, and Reba McEntire's song "When You Have A Child" came on. If you haven't heard this song, google it. One line of the song says "The first time you hold 'em it's like you see God's smile, what a smile, when you have a child." I do see God smile every time I look at my precious little angels. It doesn't matter how many times I get peed, puked, or pooped on I see God smile every time I look at them. I never knew I could love this much. I would do anything for these little guys. They bring so much joy to our lives already, I can't imagine our lives without them. They are almost six weeks old. Can you believe it? They are changing so much already. I am trying to soak every bit of them in because I know they won't stay small for long. I feel so blessed to be given the gift of Motherhood.
