When our kids reach the age of about 15 - 18ish months, life becomes bittersweet in our home. I remember feeling this way with Ledger, but this time around, this stage is much more sweet. We’ve been blown away how much the twins remind us of Preslee. I know most of it is due to toddler mannerisms, but between both boys, they have sparked so many different memories, helping me focus on the good. As I’ve seen little glimpses of the girl we miss so much, there have been moments I’ve felt Heavenly Father urge me to slow down and enjoy this stage with Cannon and Cruiz, reminding me how blessed we truly are.
Whether it’s Cannon’s grin, slobbery kisses, or the way he calls out Momma each morning, Cruiz’s eyes, the way he sleeps, or his cuddly moments due to teething; or how both boys react when I point the blow dryer in their face, followed by dance parties in our tiny little bathroom, my heart feels like it’s about to explode.
So please forgive me if things slow down around here for a little bit, (I know they already have).
I’ve made it a goal to listen to the prompting and enjoy every moment with these boys for the next little while. I know each stage passes by all too quickly and I won’t get this sacred time back.
Today I’m feeling extremely grateful Heavenly Father trusted me enough to be their mom,
I love all 4 of you more than you know.
