Happy Birthday, Kate & Matt!

Happy 1st Birthday to our sweet baby girl, Katherine Ilene and busy, curious little boy, Matthew Edward!  We love you more than words can ever express.  We can't imagine life without the two of you!  Memories of the day you were born will be ones we'll always treasure and never forget.  Welcoming you two into the world was an amazing miracle and blessing. We thank God for choosing us to be your parents; we are truly the lucky ones to be blessed with you. 

I wish I could bottle up all of the moments from this past year to go back to them whenever I wanted. (this should be possible, right?!)  But I do look so forward to the next stages and years ahead.  Here is a list of my top 5 favorites for each Katherine and Matthew.

1. You're an awesome snuggler! I love how you just like to sit and hang out on our laps or sleep with your head on our chests.
2. Your BIG, wide, contagious smile.
3. How you kick your legs when you get excited.
4. Your belly laughs and sweet, little girl voice.
5. How you play peek-a-boo with your monkey blanket.  You laugh and giggle at yourself.

1. How busy you are.  You never stop moving and love to climb on and in to anything you can!
2. You are Mr. Curiosity and are constantly scoping out the room around you figuring out what's what and all that you can get into.
3. You're dimples.  And that adorable little smile with your two top teeth.
4. Your wrist waves and babbles for "hi" and "bye".
5. How stubborn you can be.  You definitely know what you want and get frustrated when you can't do it.

You bring so much joy into our lives and into your families'.  We hope you have a wonderful, special first birthday!

Here are just a few pictures from the twins' 1st birthday party on Saturday.  I'll post more soon when I blog just about their birthday party.
