When the doctor said there were two heartbeats…I was excited. Excited, nervous, surprised and giddy. I never could have imagined how blessed we would be as parents. Lily and Lauren are two special and beautiful little girls who we have watched form a very special bond. When they were babies they slept and and nursed together – never apart! They are now inseparable, and although they have their moments, they really have such a strong and sweet relationship. It’s amazing the compassion they have for each other. When one hurts, the other is hurting. When one cries, the other sympathy cries. When one is nervous, the other takes her hand to comfort her.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these photos. Landon and Brooke were at church, and I was feeling the need to be “artistic”. So we packed up and drove to the field across the street from our neighborhood. I let them out of the car, and they ran to the field to play together. I just sat back and captured their happiness….their special moments….the love they have for each other.
I know I take a lot of photos of the kids, but these were just very special to me. When Landon got home, we went through the photos before I edited them. Just looking at the photos brought tears to our eyes!
I pray that they stay best friends…that the love that they have for each other only grows stronger. I am so thankful I get to be their mommy and watch them grow up to love one another. They are such a beautiful gift from God!
“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” – James 1:17
