An official Happy First Birthday to the triplets! 11-10-10 … great day!
Here’s a little flash back … this is what I looked like one year ago today:
This is what the triplets looked like one year ago:
They aren’t walking quite yet like Doug had hoped they would be (dork!) but they are close. Both Logan and Weston have started to let go of what they are holding onto. But they soon lose balance and plop down hard on their diaper butts. Sorry Doug, I’m thinking your “walking before one year old” wish isn’t coming true.
We’re having a low key, sort of normal day. (With all these boys, what is normal anymore?) We’ll have a family dinner when Doug gets home from work … let the boys eat some more cake. Jaden made them a birthday card at school and he’s excited to give it to them.
I just can’t believe everything that has happened over the past year … the greatest blessings and the ultimate lows. Our friends and family have held onto to us tightly and for that we are forever thankful. Without your support we wouldn’t be here today with the strength to wish our triplets a happy first birthday.
Weston and Logan, I wish for you that your second year of life is better than your first. I hope you grow to know Owen more in a way that I never will know him. I pray that you do in fact learn to walk … but no real rush on that yet. I hope you laugh more than cry. That you learn the depth of Jaden’s love for you. I pray that I am able to show you even a glimpse of how much I love the both of you. I hope that I am the mother that you need over the next year … that I teach all the things you need to know in life to be happy and successful. I know it’s going to take more than just your second year of life … but we can start with how to share your cheerios.
I wonder where we’ll be next year on Nov 10. Will we be living in the same house? Will we have the same friends? How many words will you be able to say? How will your personalities have grown? Will you have a favorite … something?
The gifts of the future are exciting. Hold tight to the treasures of the past. And never take the present for granted.
Philosophical quote of the day right there!
Happy Happy Happy first birthday to the greatest triplet boys in the whole world!!!!!!!! (I suppose I’m slightly bias).
