{ Our Twins | First Birthday }

Happy Birthday Emmaline Ruby + Hazel Rose!

And just like that our twin baby girls have turned 1 year old!  What a year it has been and our lives forever changed through this experience of having multiples….and 3 kiddos under the age of 3!  Much of this year we were in survival mode and running on fumes from putting all of our energy into loving on and caring for our little ones.  However we made it to the ONE year mark with TWINS and an older child { Rhett was only 2.5 when the babies arrived } and everyone survived and are healthy…YAY!!!  Nothing worth having comes easy and we worked HARD pushing through the last 12 months of parenting 3 babies while working full time with 4 different businesses between Brock and me, rocking restless littles through the night, constant feedings during the day and night, lots of meltdowns, hospital stays, endless diaper changes { Rhett didn’t decide to finally potty train until a couple months past his 3rd birthday }  and simply giving our all to make sure our family was our top priority above all else…If you came to our house in the last year or saw us out in public you got a full glimpse of the crazy that we were in…HA!  We can proudly say we have come out the other side stronger, wiser, more generous/selfless and much more humble.  Having more than one small child/two babies at one time pushes you to the max and when you are in the thick of it is hard to see any progress…but looking back over what we have endured and overcome over the last 365 + days, Brock and I can say that it was worth it all!  And now that we are through some of the most physically exhausting parts of baby-hood life, it will only get better from here on out!

Enjoy some sweetness from Emmaline Ruby and Hazel Rose’s 1st birthday party photos at our home the week of Thanksgiving.  These tiny gals are such blessings!  They are different in every way possible but that just allows us to love their unique qualities in different ways.

1st cupcakes/sugar for the babies!  Rhett is the cutest big brother and adores his babies!
