Twas the night be-four

Well this is me four years ago! You probably didn't pay attention to how horrible I look because of the enormous belly (I had to stand sideways to reach the faucet on the sink)! And you can't tell how absolutely miserable I was carrying almost 12 pounds of babies! I was just over 36 weeks along, and this was the night before I delivered the Pipi and J.J. It is so hard to believe that my babies are turning 4 tomorrow.

It is crazy how life works...there are so many days that I just wish would hurry up and get over with...but as those days go by I am sad about my children growing up.

Today I made a big deal about this being the last day EVER that Pipi and J.J. would be 3 years old. I kept saying that they would NEVER be 3 again and so on and so on. So tonight after we put everyone to bed (while we were watching Lost), we hear Pipi upstairs just wailing. I went up there to see what was going on, and here is how the conversation went:

ME: Pipi what is wrong?

PIPI: I don't want to turn 4!!! (crying very loudly)

ME: Why don't you want to turn 4?

PIPI: I want to be the same person that I am now.

ME: You will still be the same person but just 4 instead...you will be able to do a lot more things...

PIPI: (really sobbing) Well I don't want to be 16!

ME: (very confused with this) You won't be 16 for a long time, but why don't you want to be 16?

PIPI: (still sobbing) Because then you won't hold me!!!!!

ME: (my emotions struck, and I lost it)...(wiping tears) I will hold you anytime you want me too!

I think I got her to settle down by telling her that she would get to open her presents tomorrow. She said hummm, and then rolled over.

I guess that I need to get used to the idea of them all growing up...BUT I don't have to like it!!!

Who needs friends when you have a twin...they did this together most of the day today! God sure knew what he was doing when he gave me twins to entertain each other.
