I'm Speechless.....

video

This was sent to my phone yesterday. I haven't been this verklempt since she lost her front teeth.... And for those of you who know me, I am not a sappy momma. I celebrate everything as it happens instead of crying that "my baby's growing up!" Every new thing is something to celebrate. But with the twins, every time they do these big kid things, part of me still sees them clinging to life in an isolette, giving us all the feelings of uncertainty that comes with being that premature.

Go, Erin, go!

(By the way, we took Griff's training wheels off, too, but he's not quite there yet. And to know that Erin's being made over for her mad riding skills, it pisses him off that he's not there yet. He cried when we made him stop after our backs gave out last night!)

Griffin will get it soon, he won't want to be outdone by a girl, let alone his sister.

I had a nice visit with your hubby yesterday, too quick though. Hope he enjoyed guys night out. I'll have to send Scott along sometime.

They do grow up too fast but like you said they need to mature and you are so proud of them when they do. It just don't seem possible that they are "training wheel free" though.
