It seems like just the other day I was doing Knox & Sloane's ten month post. Heck, it actually seems like just the other day they were ten days old.
I immediately knew to believe people when they said, enjoy it, it goes so fast.
It does. It goes really fast and it really does make me sad. Most people say, oh, don't worry because you will enjoy every stage.
I know I will enjoy every stage, but I've really loved this one, too. A year just seems so big.
I sit and think about our first year with them. That's probably a whole different post in itself.
For the next ten days I'm going to be extra thankful for this past year. Ten days before I had Knox & Sloane, I just kept praying they would be okay and that I would bring them home. While I had a deep feeling they would be fine, it was still music to my ears when I heard they wouldn't need to go to the NICU and we could all eave the hospital within a few days.
It's so strange how during the past two weeks, everyone who I've told that I have twins has immediately asked, did you know you were having them?
I've replied the same thing to each, yep! we knew from very early on we were having twins.
Ten days after finding out we were pregnant, we knew our chances of bringing home twins were pretty great as we knew there were two sacs and hopefully two developing heartbeats.
I've been thinking how ironic it is that so many people have been asking if we knew. I guess maybe people are surprised by it more often than not. I will say that I've never heard of as many twins and twin pregnancies as I have this year. Anyways, part of me think the "did you know you were having twins" question has replaced "are they your only kids" and believe me when I say, I'm okay with that. It's a much easier question to answer and while I'm totally immune to answering, it's helping my heart focus on this first year celebration for Knox & Sloane.
Obviously not a day goes by where I don't think about Cohen, but I knew ten days after we said goodbye to him that we wanted to have more children. We knew.
We know now that Knox and Sloane are here more than likely because of him.
So while we never had a chance to celebrate Cohen's first birthday with him here, I think we will always think of him on his birthday and on the twins' birthday.
It's been a wonderful year and they have truly blessed our lives.
I cannot imagine ten days without them.
This post is kind of all over the place, but I sat down a bit ago and it dawned on me that ten days is soon! My babies aren't so much babies anymore.
