A year ago, this is where it all started!!! Oh my! I knew my belly was big, but oh myyyy! My mom showed me this picture from her camera the other day, and it brought back so many memories!
And now look! We are celebrating their first birthday! What a year this has been for us. We have been given so many blessings from God, and we are so incredibly thankful for them all. We celebrated their birthday this past Saturday and had a blast. We surrounded the girls with family and friends and had so much fun! The girls both really got into their cake! Once they tasted that icing, it was alllll over!
This year has gone by so fast. The girls are getting so many teeth in, I hurt for them! They are trying to pull up, but haven't gotten the hang of it yet. But, they are always in such happy spirits. Every where I take them, people always tell me what good happy babies they are. I just smile and say to myself, "Yeah, I know"! They bring me happiness and joy each and every day. Below are pics from the party...

One of my closest friends, Jackie, came in from Houston. She helped me out so much, with the babies, party, everything. I honestly couldn't have pulled this weekend off without her. Jackie, you mean the absolute world to me, and I'm so thankful that God put you in my life 10 years ago. I know we will be lifetime friends! What a blessing you are!
I know I'm awful at posting updates. I'm so busy with them all day long, that by the time I put them to bed, I'm exhausted. I will try to do better!
My heart goes out to all of the current CDH families who are going through what we went through a year ago. I pray for God's will for all of you! CDH will always be a part of our lives!
There isn't a day that goes by that we don't think about the other CDH families that we got to know so well this time last year. We still pray for your angels and survivors!
