I was writing drafts of the emails I send to the kids each year on the day of their birth, and its hard to imagine that my babies are turning 1and 3. A year ago today, I went into labor (at 3:30) with Jax. And 3 years ago tomorrow, I was laboring with Jaylee. I can’t remember what life was like before either of these two drill sergeants entered my life.
But I know this: my life was made infinitely more wonderful with their entrance.
Footnote: each kid has their own email address that Jordan signed them up for once we knew their names. Throughout the year, I email them photos and videos of themselves doing cute and typical things. And then on their birthdays, I write them a longer email about their year. Its basically a digital scrapbook. We plan to give them the password on their 16th birthday (or maybe 18th). Jordan got this idea from a google commercial where a dad did this very thing. Hopefully email is still around in 18 years. 🙂
