GUYS I HAVE TWINS SO I KNOW THESE ARE 11 MONTHS LATE. but i never published these sweet photos from our friend Lori! I am so happy to have these pictures of the tiniest little boys!
I am weepily planning their first birthday party and while it feels like this day was forever ago, it feels like it was yesterday at the same time. Lori came over the afternoon before N left for almost 6 months of army training. I was pretty much held together until the boys were asleep and she wanted to do a few of just us. GOOD LORD I HATE HAVING BEST FRIENDS WHO KNOW WHAT TO SAY AND HOW TO GET YOU TO CRY. Y’all. I didn’t even cry at my own wedding but I lost it. The weight of not only being without him for so long but knowing that he would also miss so many memories was heartbreaking. Thank God for FaceTime and two tiny trips home (one where I ended up in the hospital – more on that later.) But we made it. I could not have survived those months without family and friends that constantly were in my corner cheering me on, even when I didn’t feel like I was doing anything right.
For now, here are some itty babies (Jack with all the hair in the world and Mason looks like a doll – I never realized he was so little but I now know how tiny 5 pounds really looks.)
