And then they were three

Three months of bedrest... three years of twindom.  It's been a rollercoaster from the very first ultrasound when I heard the words, "It's twins!"  And it still takes a village to get us through the day sometimes.  But the love and the cuteness.  OH THE CUTENESS.  Listening to the two of you play together, talk together, and we have no clue what you are saying but there's complete understanding between the two of you... it's just special.  A bond that most of us will never fully understand.  You fight like brothers (who would expect otherwise?) but you are also little buddies.  Learning the world not only at the same time, but as a partnership, enjoying the ride as twins.  Neither of you would be the same without the other, and I would not be the same without either of you.  Nix, you have a deep curiousity of your surroundings and sweet smile belied by the mischeivous glint in your eyes.  Gax, you are energetic and perceptive with a quiet but geniune concern for those around you.

I am grateful every day, every single day, that you are both here, and you are both healthy.  I love you separately, I love you together, now and always.  Happy birthday, Nix and Gax!
