I Had No Idea

Is that me? Are those my newborn twins in oversized diapers? Did they really fit on my chest and did we spend hours of the day in this position? I truly didn't know that this was ever something I would enjoy. I just had no idea and I still pinch myself to make sure it's real.
Is that our little C, sitting up so proudly for the first time? I had no idea I could be so proud of such a seemingly small feat.
And I didn't know that little L's smile and bell-like laughter would stop me in my tracks so that I might remind myself how lucky I am. And what I really didn't expect was that, when Danish Cowboy and I decided to start a family, how hard that would prove to be, how many tears we would shed, and where this journey would take us.
But I sure am glad we traveled down that long road because those wrinkles, those smiles, those little butts and all of the memories we have made and all that we will make in the future -- I would do this all over again in a heartbeat...because I had no idea that after 18 months this little 6 lb 3 oz babe would turn into an attitude with a killer smile and a brilliant sense of independence,

and that this 5 lb 12 oz newborn would be a lean, mean bike-riding machine with a kind heart and a quick laugh.
I had no idea they would change so quickly and in so doing change Danish Cowboy and I forever. Thank you, little people!
