Remember this day? I was at work last week, and one of the nurses told me a visitor was asking to see me. I walked into the room and the visitor was the boys' birth mom. I have not seen her since the boys were born. A flood of emotions came over me. Tears instantly came to my eyes. I cannot even begin to describe the amount of grattitude and respect I have for this brave girl. She has brought so much joy to my life. She gave me the greatest gift I could ever ask for.

Seeing her brought back so many memories of this amazing day. Seeing them for the first time... holding them and telling them how much they were them their first bath...every moment with them was a miracle.

I continue to be amazed by them, even when they dump their whole bowl of cheerios and milk over their head at the breakfast table. Now that the mess is cleaned up, it is easier to laugh about. They thought it was hilarious!

Maybe I'm Learning to be a Better Listener

I miss the cabin, and this was a fun trip.
In the mornings, i would warn isaac and will that the dock was slippery, and that it would be dangerous to walk on it until the sun came out and dried up the rain.

I remember being really confused about why Isaac wanted to tell me that there weren't any ducks sleeping on the dock...

...until today when I watched this video and understood perfectly what he was really trying to say.

"We wouldn't want to wake up any ducks"

...nice one dad
