Suddenly, I feel my self yanked forward, arms clutching the reins, feeling them being ripped out of their sockets feet flying behind me. Toes scrape the ground, I run a little, I dig my heels in, wrap the reins around my wrists and skid… only to be yanked forward again, feet flying out from under me in a superman pose.
I’m sure that’s what every parent feels… time just grabs a hold and drags you along whether you’re ready or not. No matter how hard you try to slow it down.
It’s been 6 months already! The NICU is like a dream… this time last year I just took my first pregnancy test and now my babies have started to roll over! Well, baby #1 that is. Baby #2 will follow, I’m sure, he’s just taking his time.
They are so much fun. And some days a lot of “work” ~ especially as they’ve really started tag teaming the nap times. Z; “OK buddy, it’s time to wake up, I can’t keep my eyes open any longer”. Q; “OK bro, I got this. I’ll let you know if anything fun happens”.
Or at least that’s the way it seems. But could they be any more beautiful? I think not.
