My cup runneth over.

There are these moments in time where it almost feels like the movies where things are frozen for me even though everything around me is still moving.  My head and heart are trying to capture it, take it all in, and hold on to those moments so tight.  It's this weird knowing that this moment is ordinary and special all at the same time.  The feeling that Abigail won't always spend hours everyday dancing and singing.  The realization that Shilo won't always fit just so on my chest while she is sleeping.  So I close my eyes, take a deep breath, and hold onto those moments.  While a camera or a video may capture some small part of these special times, it doesn't do justice to the amount of joy our lives are filled with.
I realize that not everyone understand the what and why of us having two children with special needs by choice.  But in all my life, my heart has never felt so full.  I don't know how to even begin to describe it besides grateful and blessed.  Why God chose us to be these two little girls parents is not something I question, but I daily feel so unworthy of something so wonderful.

seriously, these girls are in LOVE.

mama made her work so hard on head control that she fell asleep during tummy time.

Grateful for the little moments each day,


  1. My goodness, Abigail in the blue dress and that huge smile on her face...PRECIOUS!! I have a 3-year-old who wants to wear "princess dresses" everywhere...even to the pool at the YMCA! You gotta love the girlie girls.

    These pictures compliment your words perfectly.
