Retro Friday--April 2006

I thought I had it all. But I was wrong. Now I do. I am a mommy. Finally. The expression on my face says it all. We had been home just 3 weeks. Everytime I look at these pictures I break out in a grin. This is love. April 2006.

They are so much more than I ever dreamed possible. Truly. Spent the day at the "farm" and had a ton of fun feeding all the animals. Girls really got into it today.

This picture gives me an appetite to see more of when they were babies, this blog has been about toddler hood. I would love to see some pics of you in China and when you were first home!!

Kate,

Thank you for stopping by to look at our "show". Yes, the blog has been more about the girls as toddlers. The truth of the matter the first 9 months of their little lives we barely had time to do anything. We were exhausted. No, we were in a constant daze. Lol. We have this "twin" thing down now and yes it is much easier. Don't interpret that to mean it's "easy" cuz it's not! They are so damn fun and yes, I think my girls are the cutest and smartest. I've turned into one of "those" mother's! Lol. Stay tuned it only gets better from here.......

crazylady said...

Oh sweetums, I remember these days long past. You always glow under the influence...of those children.
You are all gorgeous inside and out.

I am not dead (yet) but can't seem to find the on switch. Thanks for checking on me.
luv ya till the last day
Sen

Heather said...

You all look so beautiful and happy! It's amazing how much the girls have grown and how you haven't aged at all!

DAVID AND AMY VENN'S WEBSITE said...

Positively Glowing!! I am like you... I never knew that becoming a mother would feel so complete. We waited because we kept thinking that we would be giving up so much, but actually we gained so VERY much!! I am grinnin' witcha ya!!! :-)

The Real Me said...

I added a song to my latest post, I think you'll agree it's worth another look-see... Mwahaaa!

MississippiZen said...

I love looking back at our first pictures home! What a great shot!

LIZ said...

Your girls are beautiful! You can see the happiness radiating from your face in that picture.

Lori said...

Oh Rony, what a BEAUTIFUL photo of you girls!! I love it. You look so pretty and the girls are just so DARLING!!
Are they always matching?
So cute!! :D

nikki said...

Oh yeah, I'm grinning too! You all look beautiful -- and color coordinated too!
Fabulous!

theghelertertwins.blogspot.com said...

No, the girls are not always matching, however I did ALWAYS dress them alike in the beginning. I find I do dress them alike when we take them out in public as it's easier to spot them when they're in the same clothes. I try to put them in coordinating outfits , like one in pink and one in purple or one in yellow and one in green. I'm funny that way..
