Time Marches On

Friday, May 21st, my precious little twin grandbabies will turn 6!    This blows my mind as it seems like just yesterday they made their entrance into this big ol’ world.      After my daughter spent a week in the hospital awaiting their birth, they arrived kicking and screaming…..Taylor at 5:00 A.M. and Jackson quickly following at 5:02 A.M.

NEWBORN BABY

David and I have been overly involved (LOL) in their short lives since the beginning.     And while it’s  been so much fun seeing them turn from babies, to toddlers and now into “little people”, it also makes me sad to see them grow up, far too quickly as far as I’m concerned.

 jackson's day 001

Last summer I took one child for a whole day before school started to do whatever they wanted to do…eating out, playing, buying MORE toys, etc.    Jackson is impatient for me to quit taking pictures so we can go get him a “twuck”

Wow, time sure has flown by. I remember you posting the pics of their first day of Kindergarten!! Yes, enjoy them while you can...as you know with "adult" children, they become grown-ups in the blink of an eye! Started my own blog, please stop by and visit.

They are so precious, Judy ... and I can relate to them growing up way too fast. How blessed you are to have three grandchilden. I hope Taylor and Jackson have the best birthday party ever! They are truly beautiful children.

Judy, they are so adorable. A very HAPPY B-DAY to both of them. Is the other little girl in the christmas photo a grandchild too? She really does look unhappy about getting her pic taken, but so cute.

I can hardly believe that our little one will be 3 this Fall, I can remember when they met me at the Seattle airport with her for the first time, seems like yesterday. I just want to bottle up everything about her. They do grow up too fast.

How sweet! You are bringing a tear to my eye. We have twin 4 yr. old granddaughters and it's hard to believe so much time has passed so quickly! Aren't twins a marvel and a privilege! Linda
