Referral-versary the second time around

I know I have been a very delinquent blogger lately (uh...since Sept 2010 good grief!) and I do have a lot to fill you in on (big move, big milestones, etc) but I can't let today go by without a bit of fanfare. Today is our referral-versary.

Two years ago today, June 8, 2009, we saw this picture in our inbox

One year ago today, June 8, 2010...

Today, June 8, 2011

They are so big now-26 months old. They talk, sing, run, question, argue, climb, hug, laugh all the time. Independent and snugly at the same time. They are each other's best friend and still the greatest joys we have ever known. The more we learn about them, the more they learn about EVERYTHING...honestly, I have no words.

Right now, as I type this, I can hear Baby Girl on the monitor singing herself to sleep. Her own original mash up of Queen's Bicycle Race, an old camp song I used to sing to her at night, and Rainbow Connection. It goes something like this:  "Bicycle! Bicycle! I want a Bicycle today while blossoms on vines and I eat your strawberries. cause Rainbows are visions, only visions with nothing on other side"  Baby Boy, of course, has been asleep since the moment we laid him down so he misses out on her concert.  He spent the afternoon climbing up onto the top of our sofa and then jumping off into a pile of pillows. "Baby Boy jump! Again! Again!"

I had no idea when I saw that first photo what my life would be like with them in it, and now, two years later I can't begin to imagine what it would be like without them.

Baby Girl, Baby Boy - you are our hearts... xoxo
