Our 1st Mother's Day--- Stacey posting (Mama)

Today marks 8 months and 2 weeks that we've been Mommy and Mama. What a wonderful journey! Every day we learn something new about being Mommy and Mama and every day we fall in love with them again and again.

For me, the babies serve as a constant reminder of how lucky I am to have Jill as my partner in life. She is the most wonderful mommy to the kids and the most wonderful wife to me. We share a love that no words can describe. (enough mushy stuff)

On to milestones:

Isabel- has 2 teeth, sits independently for long periods of time, loves talking, loves smiling, does the cutest head nestling maneuver onto peoples' chests, is an independent eater, prefers to feed herself, will scoot backwards sometimes when placed on her knees and hands, claps, steals her brother's pacifier, raises her arms to be picked up, loves the sign "all done," loves dogs, loves people, loves being held and is a happy girl!

Jack- is very verbal especially in the mornings, he sits independently for as long as he wants, he prefers to lie on his back and eat his hands feet toes...., is quick to smile, loves music, loves the sign "all done," loves to steal his sister pacifier EVEN if he has his own, loves to steal his sisters toys EVEN if he has his own, rolls over from back to front to front to back and moves that way, has awesome red hair, doesn't want to miss a single moment so is awake a lot during the day, raises his arms super high to be picked up, loves being held and is a happy boy!

There are only 27 school days left until we are home for the summer with the kids! So excited to get to spend almost 3 months with them traveling, camping and just being a family!

I guess that's all for now. Hope everyone that reads this enjoys Mother's Day doing what they enjoy doing most! Here's a few pictures:

You both are truly lucky! This goes for the mommy and mama and for Jack and Izzy. They are lucky to have the two of you. The two of you are lucky to have them. What a beautiful family. I hope people that see the four of you together realize that your family deserves to be treated like any other family. We need to hang out soon. I need baby time because I won't be getting any grandkids any time soon. Thank you for sharing!
