|Happy 1st Birthday! September 2010, Spring Lake, NJ|
to their second birthday, when they had a juice box for the first time, tried out a classroom experience for the first time (FAIL!), and were learning how to read,

to their third birthday, when they started preschool (gulp) and we began letting them find themselves in the world,
|3rd Birthday Party, September 2012|
to their fourth birthday: twins in PreK with minds of their own who can read, who love to dance and sing, who are nearly as proficient in ASL as I am in spoken English!, and who light up our lives every second of every day.

We've had our ups and downs, but I wouldn't change them or the road we're walking with them for anything. They light up my life and give me purpose. I love watching them grow and change, and I can't wait to see what the next 4 years will hold for us.
Here are a few of my favorites over the last 4 years...
Happy Birthday, my sweets. I love you more today than yesterday but never as much as I'll love you tomorrow. You make my heart grow. You teach me why God made me in the first place. You give me a reason to get up every day. To say that "I love you" doesn't convey nearly as much as I wish I could. You'll always have my heart, and I'll always be yours. Happy Birthday, Bobby. Happy Birthday, Maya. May this new year be your best one yet!
