Happy Birthday...

Today is my little girls birthday, she is 14!!! I can't believe time has flown by so quickly. (I remember when...) She is a busy little bee, here lately. With try-outs and practices... 9th grade will be a year of adjusting.

We celebrated her birthday w/ her BFF on Saturday evening at Whiskey Creek River Restaurant. Then had a sleep over. Sunday we had a cake celebration at church with all her friends there. Tonight I plan on bringing her a surprise home, along with a bite of cake and gifts... AFTER she gets home from her volley ball clinic (6-8p). LONG DAY!

I do have myself a straight "A" student, though! She is really a hard worker and although her organization skills are not the best, she manages to do what needs to be done. It is a little frustrating to live in a house where everyone is un-organized but me. I go around putting things in order, just to have it slowly go back to the way it was. (Will I ever give up?)

My weight loss journey is proving to be a success this week. I am only 6.5 lbs away from my pre-pregnancy weight! I am amazed at that, considering the twins are not even 5 months old yet.

Speaking of which, their Mom called me the other week and also sent me photos of the boys. My, oh My... how they have grown! She said they are doing well and growing so much... each weighing in at or close to 15 pounds! Such little chunkers! I wished I could hold them.... I know I have said that before... and I will continue to. That is the one thing I wasn't able to do... and it will forever be a desire in my heart. To hold the babies that I was able to carry for a special couple.

I am reading DEAR JOHN... just slowly! I should be finished by the end of the month, if not sooner. Great book so far and I am on part III.

Thank you!

Yes the twins are growing and doing quite well to have been born at 36 weeks! Their mom is great at making sure they eat and on a schedule. Thanks to her they are really gaining and doing awesome! As far as seeing them again, I hope that one day I will... but that is totally in the parents hands. We made it clear in the beginning that I wanted to be a small part (like a distant aunt) of their life... but honestly I am not sure if it will happen.

I am just glad that I get an update now and again... oh and pictures!!! I am sure I would fall into a deep depression if I didn't have that!
