The Big One

It's hard to express ourselves on a day like today. On one hand, it seems as though it could have been yesterday that these guys came into the world. How has it been a full year? But on the other hand, we can't remember life without them. We can't even imagine what we did before they arrived. You know, when we had social lives and dinner parties and hours-long bookstore visits and happy hours that lasted all night (oh yeah, that's what we did...). But we gladly traded all that in for life with these twins, and we have no regrets. They've filled our lives in ways we never could have imagined. They're just incredible, and they teach us something new—about them, about us, about life—all the time. We know how lucky we are, and we're thankful every day.

We made wishes on the kids' candles tonight. Very obvious wishes, but that's all we need.

Happy birthday, Tanner and Jane. We can't wait to celebrate many more with you.

Splish Splash

Tonight was the first night the kids took a bath together with toys and really got a chance to play around without our chasing them around with soap. They seemed to really enjoy themselves, splashing a ton and managing to soak Mom and Dad in the process. Here's to many more messy bath nights.
