18 Months of Togetherness

The boys celebrated 18 months of life on Saturday in Michigan. (More pictures and stories to share soon from our tow truck- free adventure.)  A year and a half seems so short, yet at the same time a whole lifetime ago.  It’s a jumbled year and a half of memories, the overwhelming majority of those being joyful.

In the 600-720 minutes the boys are awake in the day, less than 10 of those are spent playing together with the same thing at the same time (without it becoming a battle). So here’s a look at the "paranormal":

Thanks to your overwhelming encouragement from my last post.  Honestly, it was touching.  Each and every comment was a blessing! I’m anxious to share more with you….but for now I must turn my attention to unpacking and snack time for the little bottomless pit boys!

    I love how you have their “awake time” counted out in minutes. 🙂
    Way to capture the togetherness for all of us to enjoy!

    Man, Jen–

    They are really, really starting to look so grown up! My Ethan is looking that way too, to me (he is one day older than your boys) and it just kills me some days…where is my BABY going?!

    Can’t wait to see what posts you have lying in store for us…I will pray for clarity of “speech” for you as you put your thoughts into words!
