Little Teachers

I know, I know. I'm very late in posting this.

Marcus and Maddox turned two on a beautiful, sunny, unseasonably warm 87 degree day, on April 3, 2010. 

I am so blessed to have these two amazing little men in my life.  I never imagined how much I would learn from them.

Through their eyes I have learned to discover and appreciate the little things.

They have taught me how to be patient.

They have taught me to slow down and enjoy every single moment of each and every day.

They have taught me to not care about what anyone else thinks.

They have taught me that it is ok to get messy.

That first words, steps, kisses, and hugs are more important than laundry, dusting, vacuuming and mopping.

They have taught me selflessness.

I have learned the true meaning of family.
I wouldn't change a single second of the last two years.

Thank you Marcus and Maddox. 
You are the reason I get out of bed each morning, and thank God for allowing me to live another day.


  1. Beautiful tribute to your boys' 2nd year! Brought a few tears to my eyes, I must admit. Great pictures, as usual!

  2. This is so sweet. How cute are they? Happy Birthday to your adorable boys!

  3. Looks like a great 2nd birthday :-)

  4. Erin, they are so sweet! I love the pic of one of them licking their cake. Totally something one of my boys would do!

    Happy Belated Birtdhay Boys!

    Thanks for signing up for my Uncommonly Cute Tshirt Giveaway!

  5. Hey, I have something for you on my blog :)

  6. So excited to hear about your new job! You are right a little pay cut can be worth a lot! :D

  7. Their so cute I just wanna squeeze'em lol. I'd gladly babysit them even with my own two running rampant :)

    ...wait. What am I saying? Four two year olds in a 1000sq ft space? I'm nuts for even going there. They are INCREDIBLY cute though...

  8. happy 2nd bday to your boys. i think it's funny that their bday is the exact same day as my twin girls and i posted their bday pics (also late) on the exact same day as you April 28...better late than never though, right?
