The Monkeys Are 2!

Two years ago today, at 6:11, 6:12 and 6:13 in the morning Jackson, Tyler and Chase entered the world. I only saw a brief glimpse of each boy before they were whisked away to the NICU (they were premature at 33 weeks and 3 days) and then I only held Jackson for a few brief moments later that morning. I did not see my children again until the next day when I was well enough to be wheeled upstairs to the NICU, but it is one of the most memorable and poignant days of my life. In fact, I remember details so vividly it seems hard to believe that 2 full years have passed already.

Before I get all teary eyed at my babies no longer being babies and instead full blown toddlers (which also tends to make me teary eyed but for entirely different reasons), let me share with you the past year in only 3 minutes.

Just like all of your blogs. I cried, laughed, and smiled the whole way through. Thank you so much for all the work you put into this blog. It makes it a little more bearable to be so far away. I love you all. See you in two weeks !!!!
