September 24, 2008


How is it that each birthday I absolutely can not grasp that you are a year older?  You are a year taller, longer, and bigger.  You are filled with a year's more memories, a year's more dreams, and a year of more stories.  May your story continue to develop into the perfect ending for you, both of you!

Had I known four years ago what lovely humans you would be today, already, I may not have been able to fully imagine it.  Though your years are young, your souls are bright and full of hope. 

To my independent, in-control, can-do, Pippi Longstocking way of dancing through life girl:  Happy Birthday Sweetpea.  You are my favorite girl on the planet!

Tatum:
"I hope you dance."



To my sweet, empathetic, loving, hilarious, Mr. Magoo little guy:  Happy Birthday Sweet-boy.  You are my favorite boy on the planet!


Chase:
"I love you to the moon, and back."

Happy 4th birthday sweet Tatum and Chase! I can't believe it. I remember just over 4 years ago when we were sitting having dinner at PF Changs with Wendy and Leah and all 4 of us were all big and preggo and stuff. And now, our babies are little kids!!!!!

Have I mentioned I love your posts! I am about to have a four yr. old on my hands Oct 1st. Hard for me to imagine two of them!:) They will love reading your online love letter some day.

Happy Birthday Tatum and Chase,

May you have many many birthdays in good health, good spirits and always with your parents'n loved ones by your side.

As our kids both "grow" and stay little, I "kind of" understand why my mom still treats me like a little kid.

Happy birthday to the sweetest set of twins I've ever met! What a wonderful, dear family.

And that car thing? I've seen it in my house many times. What is it with boys and their cars?

Stephanie said...

What little sweethearts! Happy Birthday to them both!!

Krystyn said...

Happy birthday to both of your cuties. Good think you got one of each, or you might have had a problem with the "favorite girl" and "favorite boy" stuff!

Happy Birthday times TWO :)

Hope the day is just incredible!

Cindy said...

Sweet, sweet.
Happy Birthday!

Amber M. said...

If my kids didn't love their birthdays so much, I swear I would outlaw them. It's just proof that they will one day be too big and too cool to kiss me goodbye before school or cuddle up on my lap.

Sigh.

Happy birthday to your little life's delights!

Happy birthday to the cutest kids who aren't mine! And congrats, Jamie, for surviving another year. Only 14 more to go.

(BTW, totally off topic but there is a little girl in our gymnastics class that is Tatum's one year younger identical twin. I keep waiting for her mom to get a restraining order because I keep staring thinking, "But that's not Jaime. Bummer.")

Lisa said...
