6 Months and Growing.

My Dear Sweet "Mary Kate & Ashley"

You have graced our lives with your sweetness for 6 fast paced months. I think that we have all learned a lot about each other in the past months, and we are finally settling into a groove. You have challenged me in ways I never knew were possible, you have pushed me to what I thought were my limits to only learn about myself that if pushed a little more, I wouldn't break. I am a better person because you are mine.

Mary Kate - you appear to be of stronger will, more high maintenance, if you will. If I want a smile, I have to work for it, when I get one, there is nothing better in the world at that moment. You are loud. When you're happy or sad, you want the world to know. You love your thumb, left side only. You love to roll across the floor but hate to be stuck on your tummy. Munchkin can make you laugh harder than anyone else in this world. Your big sister loves you and watching her love you, and you laugh at her makes my heart swell, like nothing I have ever felt in my life.

Ashley - you are my chilled out baby. You go with the flow, almost nothing upsets you. If I want a smile, all I have to do is look at you, most likely you are already grinning ear to ear. You are my snuggle bunny. When I rock you at night you snuggle in and I know you are enjoying our time as much I am. At that moment everyday, right when your eyes are getting heavy, I want to stop time. I want to put it in a bottle and save it for when it's gone. I can lay you in your bed at night and not hear a peep for 10 hours. You have the uncanny ability to sleep through your sisters late night antics. Munchkin wants to hold you constantly, and you love it, you pull her hair and she hates it. You look at her in amazement, almost as if you understand that she will be the one that teaches you so many things, good and bad. You may be my youngest but you are leading the way, and I wonder if you will be my trail blazer.While I am learning about you, I am learning about myself. I am strong. Physically and emotionally. I am not always going to have control and things are never going to be perfect. My organized, precise life has been exchanged for a more frazzled, play it by ear kind of style that I am still trying to adjust to, and I wouldn't change it for anything.

I am so fortunate to say that I am your Mom. As the Munchkin would say- I love you more than all of the m&m's in this world.

Happy 1/2 Birthday sweet girls.

Wonderful....made me get teary!! I think all of us moms know exactly how you feel. I want time to stop almost every day because I know these moments are so precious and will be gone too soon.

I can't wait to see them again. They look like they are about to start crawling. They get prettier every time I see them.
Have a safe trip,
Your Aunt :D
