On January 1, 2003, our twins Connor and Taylor were born. Kevin and I had no clue how to do anything with a baby...so you can imagine how scared we might have been with TWO! It was bittersweet. We had to stay in the hospital for 5 days with them BUT during that time, we learned everything we could as first time parents. We learned to swaddle, change diapers, breast feed, use that god-forsaken aspirator and many other things that we had no clue about.
I distinctly remember as we walked through our front door with them, we looked at each other and said, "what now? what have we done?" We were freaked out and scared out of our minds. All that seems like it happened just yesterday. I hate cliches but truly...time does fly. The most important thing that we've learned as parents is to savor every moment (and take lots of pictures.) ; ) What a joy those children are to our family. They complete us. Here's to Connor and Taylor and the next stage of life we're briskly entering in to.
Here are a few of my favorite images of them from this year.
