The visitors

I had some visitors this past weekend.  I watched thme run around the house and take toys off the shelf and scream at each othrt and laugh at each other and eat bowls of applesauce and then run around some more.  I stared at them and wondered "How were you both ever so small that you fit in my tummy?"

The surro-twins, they're not tiny babies any more.  They're little people with gigantic personalities.  I spent most of the weekend just watching them and enjoying being around them.  The time I spent with them was about the only time in the past two weeks I haven't had a pounding, burning lupron-induced headache.  Maybe because they were a nice reminder that everything I'm going through is for a reason and when it's all done and we're (please, oh please) successful there will be another little bit (or two) of magic in the world.

There's The Boy who laughs at everything and will let you hold him (even if you're pretty much a stranger to him) as long as he's eating chicken fingers.
There's The Girl who's a little more serious and hard to impress.  Once you make her smile though you feel like you've won something.
The Boy doesn't want to stop and look at what's in front of him, not when there's something even more interesting across the room.
The Girl is a little more deliberate.  Once she knows what she wants she's determined to go after it.
When you give them a present they might think it's hilarious to try to drop it in the toilet.
And when they nap they put their little heads together.

Yup, I did a good job.  Now their daddies are doing a good job.  I can't even explain to you how much it filled my heart up to see the babies and see how well they're doing.  The timing of their visit was perfect too.  I needed a reminder that at the end of all the shots and the ultrasounds and the headaches and the procedures and the pills....
Something wonderful happens.

Two years ago people were rude by proxy.
Four years ago today Elle wanted an itchy potty.

Wow, they are cute. It has to be really amazing to see how you helped make that family. Such a cool thing. I'm so glad they came to visit when you needed them. And I still have my fingers crossed for you this time.

Those little ones are so precious and I bet they keep their daddies plenty busy!! I'm glad that you had a chance to see them and watch them have fun. Jen, you are a fantastic person for doing what you do. I know it isn't always easy, but the rewards both for yourself and others are astronomical.

I feel like you should have a blog for your photography. I know you have a FB page, but you should have a blog for Heartland Photography as well. (I will feel really stupid if you already do.)
