Birthday week

Wednesday is Ben & Brad's 4th birthday! They are excited to go to Awana that eve and hear their class sing to them. Their birthday party is Saturday. A friend party, like Adam did on his 4th birthday. I believe there are 20 some kids coming. Wish me luck!! You know how i get when it comes to milestones and birthdays for the twins. I always reflect in a way i never will with the other two. They've come so far. They are certainly not the biggest or strongest 4 year olds you'll ever see, but they are Fun, Friendly, and Full of life! They have more then made up for the rough couple years they began their life with and I'm still amazed at what God has done in them.
Only a mother of preemies would understand why i feel the need to do this every year! 1 month

almost 4
This same container was their 'home' for the beginning weeks after they came home from the NICU. Brad was just under 4 pounds when we brought them home. Ben 4.5lbs. i spent some time explaining to them today how small they were and that they needed extra help in the hospital when they were born. And like any boy, they were off to the next thing before i could finish. i think they got the jist ?? :) I wonder if by the time they are 18 they will be tired of the annual container picture. I'm excited for us to participate in the Walk for Babies next month, which raises money to better equip NICU's for preemie care. Happy early birthday to my little men. My prayer for them from the time they were little is that someday they will begin to use their special birth story to bring God glory and point others to Him. Oh and there is another special little man also with a birthday this week, who deserves a post all his of these days.
