2 months and a day change

I am the mother of two month old twins.... where has the time gone?
Oh yeah, in late night feedings, pumping every three hours, bottles, dirty diapers, kisses right on the lips, crusty drool on their sweet cheeks and so many other sweet moments.

I have been writing a blog in my head for several days, weeks... but always starting over and not quite sure what to say.  I know that we are all being transformed into the likeness of Christ more and more every day but these past months I feel like the transformation has become more physical, more tangible than I've ever known it to be in the past.

I am being changed.  Or I am already changed and I'm catching up to the change... either way it's good.
I am a mother.  I am a mother to twins and I love it.
I would never trade this change, these moments, the sleeplessness for anything.  Oh, sure! I wish I could get more sleep.  But I know that's coming... I know that soon my girls will grow out of their clothes/diapers and I'll be in the next size and then they'll eat more and sleep more and before I know it I'll miss these sweet snuggles.

It hasn't always been this way though. I've struggled and I am sure there will be plenty of struggles ahead.  I want to be honest with you because I have been ministered to by others who have shared their hard transitions into motherhood and yet, I'm trying to find the balance of "how much" to share.
So until I can find the balance just know that I'm here and I'm excited to get back to writing down my thoughts, experiences and OF COURSE providing lots of pictures of my little sugar britches!
