Happy 27 Month Birthday, Babies!

Just a very small glimpse of the joy that you have brought us in your 27th month! You constantly amaze us with all of the new things that you are saying and doing...acting so grown up! The sentences you put together amaze us...you're just over 2 years old and clearly speaking in sentences! You are both learning how persuasive you can be...Reid when you bat those oh-so-long eyelashes at us and Louisa with the HUGE tears and your bottom lip turned completely down...you both definitely know how to work your Momma to get what you want! I usually start out firm, but can't help but scoop you up and steal some kisses because these moments are so, so, so precious to me...I don't want to miss a single opportunity to hold you and tell you I love you...even when you are being stinkers! Your love for each other just keeps growing and growing. Daddy and I love to watch how you each express your love for the other one. Several times lately Louisa had gone up to Reid when she was upset and said, "Hold you, Bubba!"...and so the big brother holds his little sister...and the Momma watches and cries because her heart is so full...and so proud. When one of you is in time out, the other often volunteers to go as well...just so you can be together. When one wakes up early, you so kindly wake the other up...just to start your day together. Those conversations we hear over the monitor are priceless. There's nothing in this world like hearing you say "I love you, Sissy Cwaire" or "I lub you, Bubba!"

The next few months will definitely be full of change as our family of 4 becomes a family of 5. You both already talk about how you love "baby brudder" and I truly believe you mean it. You might not really know what it means when we say baby brother is going to come live with us, but I have no doubt you will both be wonderful siblings to your baby brother. With the love and sensitivity that you show us on a daily basis...you show us your hearts and we know that you are ready to love your new brother as much as you love each other. We can't wait to see you with him when he actually arrives, but for now...I want to remember these special times when it is just the 4 of us. You are our precious first babies...and you will always be that. Coming into this world as fragile as you did, you both quickly showed us how strong you were. You have come so, so far....and we could not be more proud of you. Louisa, as I told you in the NICU and every night since then, you are my little angel, and always will be. Reid, you are your daddy's little buddy, and always will be!

We love you both and are so thankful that God chose to put you in our lives. You are such a blessing to us and everyone you are around. Momma and Daddy love you!
