Life with the girls

photos by christen

A lot of people have been asking me lately about how its going with two girls. My response actually surprises myself sometimes.  "It's great."  And it really is.  Never had I imagined that my heart could hold this much love for two such small tiny people. And never had I imagined that I would be able to manage life with two little kids aged two and under.

Our days are sometimes chaotic, sometimes calm, but always filled to the brim with love.
Haddie and June weirdly complete each other too.  June is just enough sweet to add to Haddie's spice of life.  

I know that I'm not just a mom, I'm their mom.  I know the ins and outs of each of them and that is where God has placed me.  Its not always glamorous, and more times than I would like,  I am comparing my life to those who live life in the childless lane. Those without the responsibilities of a little one around them... but I know that I am being shaped in the most remarkable and wonderful way.  The girls and God are teaming up to refine me.  

and I'm thankful.
