Merry Christmas to all of you wonderful readers! I love you all so much and thank you so much for reading along on our journey that is life.
We had a wonderful Christmas. We did all the fun things last night including: opening one present from Santa, which were Bubble Guppy pajamas, had some wonderful friends over who love all of our babies so much and exchanged gifts, baked cookies for Santa, read a book, gave kisses to each other and then put the babies down for bed. After they fell asleep we finished putting the toys together, stuffed the stockings, ate the cookies and setup all the gifts.
We woke up around 5:30 this morning to start cooking breakfast. A yummy breakfast that included cinnamon rolls, bacon, sausage, and scrambled eggs! Maddie woke up around 7. We wanted to wait on the twins to wake up for everyone to open their presents so we just played with her and went ahead and ate breakfast. We couldn’t wait any longer so we woke Jocelynn and JP up at 7:45. They were thrilled when they saw their stack of presents. I hate that I didn’t get any photos of today but we did film a lot, which we don’t do on a daily basis. I have all of these memories to keep to myself. And oh how I will never forget their faces lighting up every time they opened a present, or played with one. Our day continued and we went to Matts moms house to celebrate and open gifts. Cathy always out does herself with Christmas. It amazes me. She is so sweet to give the kids everything that she did and we are so grateful! We stayed over there for a while but miss Madeylnn and Jocelynn did not want to take naps today so they were beat down. We came home around 5 and played some more, ate dinner, had a warm bath and warm milk! I put Maddie to bed when she couldn’t even hold her own head up anymore. Jocelynn was so tired she was falling asleep in the recliner while watching the Kelly Clarkson special. JP was still wired from all of the toy opening so Matt played with him while I held my baby girl.
Time stopped tonight while I was holding her. I listened to her humming sounds she makes when she is tired while sucking on her paci. I held her sweet little right hand because her left hand was on her blanket she has to be touching while she sleeps. I smelled her sweet scent which use to smell like baby but only smells like baby now because I put baby lotion on her. It might had only been 15 minutes I got to rock her before laying her down but I enjoyed every single second of it. I was overwhelmed with feelings of gratitude. Feelings of feeling blessed. Feelings of amazement. Grateful to him for giving me all of these beautiful and healthy babies. Feeling blessed because I cant believe how lucky I am. Feelings of amazement because just two short years ago we were preparing to become a family of four and now we have two sweet blessings and a beautiful miracle. Amazed at all these wonderful things that have happened to us. So incredibly, unbelievably blessed.
All of my babies are fast asleep and I wanted to write to all of my readers to wish you all a very Merry Christmas! I hope you all had a wonderful and blessed one just as we did!
