Who would have guessed?


These are our dear, darling girls, from one year ago. And one year ago, there is no way we could have imagined that today:

-Elena would start referring to herself as "Yena" and Clara as "Ara" or "CaCa"
- Both girls would go to a nature exhibit and walk around experimenting and enjoying themselves
- Clara would recognize a bear, say "Bah!" and offer it her water bottle making drinking sounds (don't worry, it was an exhibit)
- Christina would tell the girls how to move slowly around wild animals, and they would both start walking around in EXAGGERATED slow motion, mimicking their Kindermusik teacher and laughing
- Elena would actually jump off of a five inch log at the park, while saying "jum!"
- Both girls could hold their own at a Cracker Barrel for an entire meal, eating their meals on their own and coloring like little angels, sitting up big as you please
- Clara would hold Christina's earrings up to her own ears, laughing with such a twinkle in her eye

We never dreamed we could be this happy, that there could be this much fun. We are so very lucky, and so darn happy.
