Some how, in some way, we celebrated the Twins first birthday this past weekend. Not gonna lie, there is just something about celebrating your babies birthday’s that bring you back to the day they were born, breaking it down moment by moment leading you to tears of
hormones joy streaming down your face at any moment of the day. You turn into this ticking timeMOMb of joy, saddness, pride… I’m not alone on this one am I?
Not to sound typical and generic… but it seriously feels like yesterday that I wrote, “The Twins Have Arrived.” In crazy emotional mom style I feel compelled to share this little video snipit of the Twins first year!
Dont you love that song?
So, here we are… a couple of one year olds now. In companion to this crazy milestone, Twin A took her first steps and Twin B now says “Hi.”
Well, ‘Hi’ and then some…
In lieu of Twin A taking her first steps, literally, the day after her birthday, she got her very first pair of brand new shoes.
Bedazzled, monogrammed, ‘Girls Glitter High Top Trainers‘ to be exact. Shoes that were admired by all. Especially Big Sis, whom was a tad dissappointed they didn’t fit her.
These shoes were sent to us as a gift for review from My 1st Years. When they arrived they were beautifully packaged. It was like the Tiffany & Co. for the first year. Not gonna lie… I was a tad jealous. 😉
These shoes are fully equiped with pink polka dots, silver sparkles, ribbon laces and a free option to personalize them. Which I think is the cutest part. Especially having twins. I heart labels. 😉
As Twin A practices her wabbly first steps, the shoes have a grip on the bottom of them so she isn’t just slip sliding around. Which, for me takes them out of the category of just being a prop for pics. However, they are almost too pretty that when she started to crawl in them I was scared they were going to get dirty! They are just too pretty to get dirty.
I may have become more attached to them then she ever will. I would say they make an awesome gift for a 1st birthday or a mom who just had a baby. Anything monogrammed always hits a heart string in my opinion. So as quickly as I have handed them over to Twin A, I am taking them back to preserve and admire. Pulling them out only for special occasions. When she is very clean. And not going to ruin them. [crazy person]
And when Twin B is ready to take her first steps I am just gonna have to add to the collection!
They are available in sizes 0-6, 6-12 and 12-18. Click HERE to check em’ out!
So this weekend we are officially celebrating with family and friends and I will go back to being a teary, happy, emotional, proud momma of two baby girls.
This past year was one of the hardest of my life. But thank goodness for the brains ability to black out some of the harder times and to fixate on the amazing times. These girls are hysterical. They dance, blow kisses, wave, say ‘Hi’… they are just happy babies. Which makes me a happy momma. [tear] Here we go again.
