Happy New Year's & Anniversary To Us!

Today is New Year's Eve, and it is also our 10th anniversary! It is hard to believe that we have been married for TEN years. It's also hard to believe that it hasn't been longer. :)
When we got married, we wanted two children. We wanted them two years apart. We assumed we would have healthy, "normal" children. How little we knew!

We didn't know how amazing it could be to watch your five year take her first steps in a gait trainer. We didn't know the heart swelling emotions of watching your 8 year old snuggle with your five year old on the couch and watch Doodlebops "Even though they are for babies, because she loves them".

There are so many things that have happened in ten years. Two children, both with medical issues soon after birth. Almost losing Peanut many times. Surgery after surgey, tube feeding, catheterizing, and on and on and on.

The experiences are priceless. The smiles are priceless.
Happy New Year's to you all, and Happy Anniversary to us!!
