PSF-Celebrating 3

My brother and his wife were in town and my sister and her family are going out of town so I decided to have a little celebration for the twins a bit early.

It was good preparation for the real day. You know, the one where I expect to cry all day (unless they frustrate me into forgetting I’m mourning) because my little 33 weekers are 3. And healthy. And smart. And sassy. And trouble. And I can’t bear to see them grow up.

  24. I’m glad to see your a mother after my own heart….one who is SAD at the fact their children are having another bday. I tried to explain to my girls one day, that of course I want them to grow up (if they didn’t, that would mean something was wrong); but I just wish it wouldn’t happen so fast….time would stand still for just a bit. Happy Mourning to you!

  25. They are seriously so cute! Where does the time go? My girls are about six months behind your boys and I keep looking at them, wondering how they are growing so fast!!

  26. Aghhh! Happy Birthday boys! They look like birthday cake pros blowing out their candles!!!

  27. Why are you so upset? You should be having a party for yourself!!! Maybe because I have no end in sight of this stage…
