One Saturday In the Life of Infant Twins

I'd like to do a tribute to my husband on Father's Day.  Going from 0-2 kids in a matter of minutes changed our lives forever. One Saturday I decided to have my camera out all day when the girls were four months old. Saturday, November 23, 2013 was of course during football session, and we stayed in by ourselves all day. As much as you don't mean for it to happen, your babies consume your lives the first couple years. There is no way around it, they need us without a shadow of a doubt, and honestly how could you not want to be there for them every second of the day. Even with all the love for them, there are trying times. They stretch the inner parts of our souls and exhaust us to the bone. Exhaustion mentally and physically hurts and looking back I remember so little of this time. It really was one big blur of sleepless nights and catnaps during the day. I had mastitis twice, which made me very sick. I laughed as I saw the image of me holding the girls and cabbage sticking out of my shirt. I almost left that image out for fear of what people would think is going on in my shirt. But this was my life that day. I chose to feed my children from my body as long as possible. I honestly think it was trying to kill me, but I did it. Then when it came time to give it up it suddenly became very easy. Go figure. Through all the exhaustion, sleepless nights, hormones, mental break-downs, and chaos my husband stayed by our side. Lesser men might have left when it got hard, but even through his own trials we found a way to make it work and love one another. I've probably said this before, but staying in love is a choice we make on a daily basis. The point of the fairy tale is they LIVED. Maybe not perfect, but they lived. Maybe we survived that first year, but now we are taking it day by day and living!

Thank you to all the wonderful Dads that make the choice to love and be there for their children and wives unconditionally every day. The more people we have in the world without "daddy issues," the better our world will be.  May God bless you all! 

The soundtrack for the slideshow is called "Wonderful to be Here." YES it is wonderful to be here, and wow, am I thankful to God for this awesome husband and our beautiful daughters! Love you Honeys! Happy Father's Day!
