Chapter 50: Dear H & L

Hadley and Layton... you are three months old! Slow down :)

{Letters to my precious girls}
I thought it would be a great idea to write a letter to you every three months or so.  I cherish each of these memories and know you will love reading them one day.

Dear Hadley, aka: Hadley Bug, Hadley Girl, Angel Face,

You are a precious doll!! Really... you are! When you cry it breaks our heart. It is the saddest sound we have ever heard. Before you cry you roll down your bottom lip and make a frown that would make anyone sad.  You are an amazing sleeper!! If it wasn't for your sister (Layton is our alarm clock), I know you would sleep through the night. I truly believe this would have happened at 6 weeks of age! You have the sweetest personality, yet can be feisty when you want to be held or loved on. You definitely let us know, yet are mostly content. Speaking of sleep, you and Layton go down for bed so easy.  We love to watch you lay there wide eyed until you finally settle and fall asleep.  Bath time is fun and you love the warm water. You have started pulling your wet hands into your mouth and sucking on them as I soap up the rest of you! You don't enjoy the cold air as we pull you out of the bath. You and your sister are going to love long soaks in a bath, just like your Momma. I am secretly hoping that you keep those beautiful deep blue eyes you have.  Although, if they turn brown like mine, I will be happy too!  We think you will be walking by 9 months... you are pushing up with your strong little legs and have been doing this since around 7 weeks.  We laugh and laugh as we hold you and "practice" standing at night.  God made you perfect in His eyes (ours too!) and we couldn't be more happy! You are the sweetest little girl and we can't wait to watch your grown over the next few months. We love you to the moon and back.
I love you,  

Dear Layton, aka: Lay-Lay, Cutie Patoottie,

You are such a beauty! Those killer eyes will hopefully not get us in trouble one day.  You too were blessed with beautiful blues.  I prayed that you and your sister would have a little bit of both Daddy and I in each of you. But, secretly, I wanted you both to have his eyes. You are precious and the most fun to snuggle with. Your smile, OH your smile. It is the cutest thing ever. I actually caught your first smile on camera. I was one happy Momma and you gave me one BEAUTIFUL smile. You love to eat. Yes, just like Daddy. Wink! You eat more than your sister and that's okay! I went through a chunky stage as a baby and I feel that you will follow after Mom. You look a lot like me, as you have my eye shape, nose and lips.  You have more hair then your sister and it looks a tad bit darker.  You spit up during some of your feedings and we have you on medicine to help with that. We think it is working. You are a great sleeper, yet when you're not in a deep sleep and your pacifier falls out, you let us know! We call you our alarm clock.  Bath time is always fun. You lay there and seem so ha happy! You don't have an interest to stand like Hadley, yet you love to kick your legs.  You are a little wiggle worm and always end up at the bottom of your crib. We love you so much and have enjoyed watching you grow. God blessed us with a beautiful, sweet, girl and we are thankful for you! We couldn't imagine life without you.
I love you,

L & H: As the months pass, I am trying to cherish each day!  You have enriched my life and I am grateful for you! I love you so much and know that God is working through me to be the best Mommy that I can be for you two.  As hard as it can be at times, He knew that I could do this. I have always prayed that God would bless me with twins.  My dream came true. I pray that God leads us in the right direction as Michael and I raise you.  As His arms are always open to us, I want your second set to be ours.  I look forward to sharing this wonderful life with you as your Mommy.

For I know the plans I have for you, to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you hope and a future! Jeremiah 29:11

Bursting with Love,
