well, it's week two of birthday skyping bonanza here at gung ho heart. this friday the twins turn 3. sayonara babies, hello growing toddlers. last night i made a late night trip to the grocery store to get a few essentials for our birthday skype this morning and made it all the way to the checkout line (and by checkout line i mean the do it yourself lane because who really waits for someone who's minimum wage salary is matched by their minimum effort take-your-sweet-time scanning attitude at the ghetto kroger on 8th anyways???) before realizing that i was holding two number 2 candles instead of two number 3 candles. the kids. they grow up so fast. and by saying that i believe i just solidified my rapid transformation into my grandfather.
our connection was pretty blurry today, but the smiles were there.
|we asked mohamed if he knew when we were coming to visit and this smile is what came along with a joyful, "JANUARY!!!!"|
|our stick figure cutout birthday cards were a hit. totally josh's idea. the kids laughed so hard!|
|blowing out their candles|
|birthday dance party. duh.|
|the coolio braid has transformed into an antena.|
|our connection even wanted to party!...|
josh and i were up 'til the wee hours of the morn bringing to life his card idea.
i give you: little body, disproportionate head.
to my faith testing, heart stretching, joy filled, miracle (almost) 3 year olds...
you were the best yes i ever said. thank you for changing my life.
