Here it is January 4, 2010 already! I feel good these days if I get one post done per week.
Believe it or not, it will soon be the twins' second birthday. Many of you prayed for them before they were born - it will be so much fun to share with you what we're doing to celebrate - later this week.
In the meantime, here is a peak at life with the "twos." I have said often in the last few days that they have been a tad behind in some of the developmental mileposts, but they are right on target with turning two! Their personalities are blossoming, their vocabulary is building daily, and they are expressing themselves more forcefully every day, if you get my drift.
This is an example of how Emma deals with a situation that she's unhappy about --
Katie expressed her disapproval of something, after a great breakfast of blue yogurt!
Their bathtime is sure to put them in better moods
I'll be back after the birthday party - I leave you with this beautiful view from my window this morning -- the moon rose above all the fog and frostiness - God is such an amazing artist!
It reminded me of a devotional from last week:
"A woman was tossing a ball to her dog as she strolled along the beach. The dog ran ahead, grabbed the ball, and plopped down in the ocean, waiting for her to catch up to him so they could do it all over again. I was amused at how the dog joyfully let the waves crash over him as he waited patiently. My mind wondered how we act as we wait on God. Are we patiently waiting, taking in today's blessings, the beauty of nature, the gifts already given us? Or are we anxious and impatient, telling God what we need?" (Brooke Pointer)
Have a wonderful week!
