Yesterday I was able to celebrate my first official Mother's day! We had breakfast at our favorite spot in Deep Ellum - Cafe Brazil, followed by an unsuccessful attempt at twelve TEN photos (Knox wasn't feeling it), and then did a little shopping for our house. I'd say it was a great day.

I still can't believe I became a Mama to TWO babies at the exact same time. I mean, would you expect anything less from my life?!

Sometimes I wonder why the crazy follows me.

I'll just say it has been a whirlwind. Becoming a Mom is already such an adjustment, and then adding a second baby to that equation before you even know if you can keep one alive... it's chaos. To be completely honest, there have been many days where I wasn't sure if I was going to make it through to the other side.

Being a Mom is hard. And blissful. And everything in between.

I probably question myself daily, if I was actually cut out for the twin Mom life, but then I do something great (humble brag), and think... I got this. Funny how life shifts the scales in the exact moment that you need it to.

And then there's the other side.

The snuggles, laughs, milestones, coos, and baby yawns. That's enough in itself to melt your heart. I'm almost positive that I will never be able to explain how I feel when Knox and Liam look up at me with the biggest grin on their faces. They way they look at me, like I'm the only person on the planet. It's almost too much to handle.

To know that I will be a huge part of their lives, it's scary and exciting. They will look up to me, depend on me, ask me for advice, and give me lots of kisses (at least for a little bit). I can't wait to experience this life with them.

I can't wait to show them the ropes, and hope that I can guide them in a positive direction for all things. There are so many incredible women in my life that I look up to. If I can be even a small portion of the Moms they were and still are, I know the boys will be just fine.

They answered my prayers, and my heart will be forever grateful. I love those two, my Knox and Liam.

For all of the Mom's out there, no matter what your story look like, here's to you. Hope you had one heck of a day.
Until next time.
