3: July 12th, 2010 we headed to the doc to see you for the first time! We were in for a big surprise when the ultrasound tech said the words, "You have TWO in there!" We were shocked, excited and scared to death! Being blessed with one new life is a miracle but TWO?! Double blessings, double fun! We fell in love with 2 baby girls that day!
4: "Don't count the years...count the memories."
5: You are fearfully and wonderfully made!

11: To my little girls, I just want to start off by saying I love you both so very much! I love watching you grow and learn and starting to walk and talk and getting into everything your not supposed to! I love it all, tough at times but worth every challenge. I just pray that God gives me and your mother the wisdom, strength and guidance to raise you and be the godly influence we are called to be! I can picture the day when your older and reading this and looking at all the pictures and I'm chasing boys away (I want that day to take its time getting here). You both are such a blessing and I love you both so much and I wish you many many good years to come! Love, Daddy
12: Ava Lynn Momma loves you. More than you know, I love you, sweet 'Baby A'. Everyday I am more thankful that God thought fit to place you in my care. Our dreams for you are nothing more than to see you follow Jesus and love Him with your whole heart. We of course hope, pray & believe for your protection, health and success. We trust that God has great plans in store for your life. Please know that you are a joy to my heart. You bring a smile to my face daily. Your smiles are contagious. Your kisses are intoxicating. Your tender heart is an inspiration. I love to see you love on your sister and learn from your brother. Thank you for being my baby girl. Thank you for joining this family. Thank you for changing my life. Thank you.
13: Lillian Renee' Momma's heart is full. Full of lots and lots of love for you, my precious, 'Baby B'. My heart is blessed by your love for people. I see in you an adventurous spirit. From the beginning you've done things your own way. You test limits (and patience). You climb and crawl on everything. Jesus has great plans for you you, baby girl. We know and trust that as you place your life & heart in God's careful hands, He will lead you and guide you in peace. He will use you & your strong spirit to share His grace & love. No matter how many things you get into or messes you make, we love you always. Your laugh and smile and precious hugs melt my heart. I can't tell you how much I cherish your cuddles. Thank you for being my baby girl. Thank you for joining this family. Thank you for changing my life. Thank you.
15: Lillian & Ava, Please do not ever question our identity. No matter how much you may look like your sister, we see YOU. No matter how many times you are asked, "Now which one are you?" No matter how many times you are compared, analyzed, stared at or questioned, We see YOU. We know you. We see Ava. We see Lillian. We see your differences. You are unique. We only expect you to be who God designed you to be. Please trust that you are NOT a burden. You are a blessing. Unfortunately, you may hear people describe you as 'double trouble'. This is NOT truth. We've always considered you both a double BLESSING. An extra portion. We are honored to be your parents. Please try to understand that time passes quicker than you realize and some day you will want it to slow down. These few years I have with you, I look forward to making many, many memories. I look forward to teaching and learning. I look forward to growing and changing. Just realize that I am content to wait for those memories to be made in due time. I am enjoying you today. Tomorrow will bring new ones but my goal is to savor every single moment I have with you- today. Love, Momma & Papa

18: Birds & Flowers Sun’s first rays Peeking into the room, Song birds, Chirping and whistling their song Joy at the break of day They could not speak But I listened And knew peace. Sun’s first rays Peeking into the room, Baby girls, Cooing and singing their song Joy at the break of day They could not speak But I listened And knew peace. Gentle breezes Pushing billowing clouds, Wild flowers, Swaying in their beautiful dresses Dancing for joy in the sunlight They did not know But I watched And knew joy.
