2x2

My sweet stickies turned two today. Two years old. They've almost been with us longer than we suffered through any IF nonsense. And, I can honestly say that these two sweet, smiling faces do make the pain we felt fade away. Not completely, but pretty dramatically. I know that's in part because the pain we felt, while so raw at the time, is so much less than so many others have and are suffering through. And my heart still aches for everyone who's seen so much worse, and for everyone on at the beginning of a very long journey.

And, because of all of that, I can't help but look at these faces everyday and just be so very thankful about how lucky we are.

At the same time, I can't believe they're two. I really feel like we went from 0 to 60 in about 3 seconds.
