Happy Birth Day Bridger and Beckett
I should have posted 6 minutes ago so it would have still been July 7, 2010 but I'm a few minutes late. I'll just think of it as still July 7, 2010...Today was a very exciting day for our family. We welcomed two new addition's to our growing clan. I really never felt so much love in my entire life until I started having nephews and a niece. I wonder if it just has to do with being an adult and having some maturity. I mean I love my family, but the idea of these spirits coming right from our Heavenly Father's arms just is so absolutely amazing and precious to me. I wonder of the potential these children have who are born at this time and why they were saved for the last days. I'm sure they were saved for these days because they were valiant and strong and willing to be warriors in the war between evil and good.
I admit, I actually had a hard time sleeping last night because I was so excited for the event today. And when I woke up this morning it was all I could think about and the fact that I really wished I was home. But, Troy was good to his word and sent pictures! It was funny to hear Troy talk about the births. I mean Troy always acts like he is this macho man, but when it comes to the births of his children he is such a softy. He said, "The first one came out screaming and they said, wow this is a big baby, then the other one came out screaming too and said, wow this is an even bigger baby." Yes, big babies indeed for twins at least. Bridger was 6 pounds 12 ounces and Beckett was 7 pounds 2 ounces. I bet Becky felt a lot lighter after all of that. All are healthy and strong and doing well, which is all we really asked for. It's humbling to me how over the past few months I have been praying and fasting for this and how my faith has been strengthened in knowing that Heavenly Father hears our prayers and He answers them too. Not that I don't already know this but sometimes it's nice to be reminded.
Mom says Gavin isn't quite sure of all of the attention the twins are getting and the fact that he has been the only one for the past 3 years, but I'm sure he will soon adjust. Apparently he cried when they dropped him off this morning and he cried when they left the hospital and he didn't even want to go to his favorite outdoor store Cabella's. He really must have been mad to have turned grandpa's offer down...Oh, he will be loving on them very soon I am sure.
