They are both turning into such "toddlers" now. They aren't really babies anymore, though they'll always be my babies. They can say what they want and get around to where they want to go. Everyone says it, and I've said it a million times, but time really does fly. Especially when you take a second to reflect and think how far you've come. I had a wonderful "kairos" moment in the kitchen the other day when I was holding Ainsley on my hip and was just really overcome with what an amazing gift she and her brother are. There really were times when we didn't know if we'd get to be parents and looking into a child's face that is half you and half your spouse is truly one of God's greatest gifts.
