6 months old.
Time is flying by....STOP! I am loving this stage of my life so much that it saddens me to think the boys can only get older and older from here on.
Little Lukey....you are so gentle and easy going. Mommy takes for granted that you too need just as many snuggles as your brother. This is why Kyle goes down for a nap/bed 15 minutes before you...that way we can spend that precious time snuggling alone and uninterrupted. You rarely fuss, you are sleeping so well and the eating.....well you are "getting it"...slowly. Less food is ending up on your clothes these days. You just discovered the exersaucer (the jumparoo was too much work for you...I understand...)
Peanut Kyle. You are fiesty, just like I was as a baby (hence why my mom took a 4 yr break from having another child after me!). Now that you have discovered food and the jumparoo (the exersaucer is not enough work for you...I understand) , you are one happy camper. When you're tired you scream like a teradactyl...it hurts my ears..seriously. I see a future full of climbing and getting into trouble....you will keep me on my toes. I'm ready for it...no worries.
Ironically, we ran into my fertility doctor at Costco on Saturday. His name is Dr. McTavish....but I called him Dr. McTasty. He is yummy...
Anyways, he runs over to Tim and I and drags his wife from the car, all to meet our twins...we thanked him for the work he does we reminded him of how he changes lives. Without him there would be no Luke and Kyle. I am forever grateful.
And to wrap up a great 6 month celebration...we got a phone call from the local TV station wanting to interview us. Manitoba is now providing a 40% tax credit towards IVF expenses and they wanted our thoughts (we have a connection...thanks Eleanor!). A camera crew came (thanks for the 2 hour notice!) and at 6pm we saw this:
It was a fantastic weekend and I cannot imagine what the next 6 months will be like. Crawling, walking, talking....but for now, I will sit back and enjoy this stage...my boys..my loves.
