be still my heart...

It comes as no surprise to anyone else that I just adore these two cuties...but, sometimes I'm just overcome with emotion when I think about how big they've gotten; how far they've come and just what a testament to God's faithfulness these two have been in my life!!
Tomorrow marks the 3 year anniversary of the day these girls tried to enter the world...a day I will never forget. a day etched in my mind in complete detail. I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that God worked a miracle that day and kept my babies cooking a bit longer. I also know that at the time it seemed like a death sentence to be stuck pregnant with them any longer. :) I can't believe my babies are going to be 3 soon...and that that day is a distant memory!
 I love these two little best friends so much! I'm so thankful that God blessed me with them! I think I finally understand, now, why all the parents of twins willingly have more kids- it gets so much better the closer they get to 3!! I love spending time with these two! they make me laugh and giggle so much. They're so full of life and spunk, it's just incredible. Most of all, when I think about Macy and Elli-  I'm so thankful that God gave me two kids to split this much personality between...I shudder to think of the poor soul strapped with this much personality alone!
I love you, my sweet little matching princesses. I know you sweet girls will never remember the "day you almost came" and I hope and pray that you never have to experience it...but, I know that that day is one of the most poignant days in my memory bank and I will never, ever forget how scared I was and how I prayed that God would just spare you from being born early! I'll never forget the day spent in labor, the scary contractions, the frantic phone call to your Nani and Sheila- begging for a ride to the hospital. I'll never forget how fast your daddy drove home from up north and how he spent the whole night sitting by my bed in his work clothes. I'll never forget how God orchestrated the doctor to be in town and willing to stop by and check on me "quick" and then figure out a nice little concoction of drugs to stop labor. I'll never forget how relived I was when I finally felt my body relax and the contractions slow down. I'll never forget how the thankful tears flowed and how your daddy and I praised God in that hospital room. I'll never forget...and I hope that you won't ever forget how much your mommy loves you, your daddy loves you, but most importantly how much God loves you!
