It's the little things

Lately a lot of days are hard. I'm tired. The babies are teething and up a lot at night and often won't easily go back down.

After a year, I just don't have the reserves to not be cranky the next day. I am longing for days, weeks, months... by myself.

But, there are so many joys at the same time:

- watching Juliette's hair turn this gorgeous shade of auburn and start to curl. Oh but she has pretty hair.
- watching Quinn figure things out. Everything is a mystery he is ready to try to solve.
- watching Kiernan develop his language skills and ability to interact with others as a kid instead of "baby". The stories and jokes that kid tells - hilarious!
- watching them play together, explore together, and enjoy each other.
- watching them learn and discover at every turn.
- the hugs, the kisses, and the love.

It's all so worth it. Imagine how much I would be enjoying it all with a few extra hours of a sleep a night!

Ah, lack of sleep... (sigh) I lost count of how many times I was woken up last night. SOOOOO tired this morning. I can't image with twins.

I can imagine that after a year of sleep deprivation, you would be at the end of your rope.
Good thing you can keep the positive in mind.

I would be lost without the little things!

With bloglines being down all day yesterday I missed your post! It's a good thing you keep track of all those little things, because who knows what all the lack of sleep is doing to our long term memory! ;)
