Happy Birthday, Madeleine and Riley!

The twins are one year old today. I can't believe it. They have had a very eventful first year with lots of highs and lows. My mom, stepdad, and dad are all here to celebrate the babies, and my in-laws are on the way. The party tomorrow is going to be quite an event.

I meant to write the twins letters every month and it hasn't happened. Hopefully I'll make some time to write them first birthday letters. If I do, I'll post them here. For now, two pictures:

You're come a long way, babies. Happy birthday.

Delurking - finally - to wish Madeleine and Riley a Happy Birthday, and to wish your family an awesome day tomorrow.
I'd like to say that, though you haven't written those monthly letters as you intended (and I can completely relate), much of what you have written on this blog stands as a beautiful letter to your children, a priceless record of their first year (and more, I hope) for you and them to treasure.
God bless you, Martha
