six and seven

Seven years ago today not two hours after I had fallen asleep I woke up to my water breaking. I was so stinking nervous! The bag was packed and we made the drive to San Antonio without incident (apparently not many folks are out around 1am on the loop 1604). Z Man hung in there (literally) for 25 more hours before making his appearance.

Six years ago today after celebrating the Z’s first birthday I woke up around 7am to some fairly regular contractions. After a phone call to the OB we were packing up our one year old on his birthday and headed toward San Antonio again. Yep, exactly one year later I was in a very similar delivery room with much of the very same nurses and staff from the year before. CaseyJ only waited 6 hours before making his laid back and easy entrance into our world.

I browsed through pictures of them the days they were born, their first summers, the first time they saw each other, chubby cheeks and sausage roll arms. Sleepy nap time hair-dos, bright blue eyes, covered in pudding pictures. Sometimes I really miss the little boys they used to be.

Those little boys have grown into big boys now and while some of the cuteness is gone they always do something each and everyday that makes me smile and brings joy to my heart. I know that they will grow up to be good boys and close brothers and they will never be able to forget each others birthday, well that is unless they somehow forget their own birthday!

To the two most awesome boys whom I cannot imagine my life without Happy Birthday Guys!!

My boys, sorta like each other
