Happy 19 Months! (Oops, and 18 months, too!)

Dear Yeladim, Happy 18 & now 19 months! Last month Abba forgot to write down our letter as we had so many things going on in our home. We’ll be using this letter to recap all that’s happened and what this next month will bring. But despite Abba forgetting, it’s been an incredibly 19 months…

Happy 17 Months (Purposefully Belated)

Dear Yeladim, Happy 17 months! Wait…did we just write 17 months? The time is flying by! That means that it has been 17 months that we’ve been blessed to be your parents. Simply amazing.

13 Months!!

Dear Yeladim Although we’re two days late in publishing this letter, it’s been 13 whole months since you’ve been born and 13 whole months that we’ve been blessed to be your Daddy and Abba. And it just seems to get better, crazier and more hectic with each passing day. Since your 12 month check-up much…

I Don’t Know How You Do It?

Becoming parents has been the journey of a lifetime. In fact the most adventurous and crazy we’ve ever experienced. Like most expecting parents we thought we were ready for the insanity that would be twins, but like most we were clearly deluded. While we navigated the bumpy, swerve-laden and cliff-edge walking craziness perhaps the one…
