Dear girls,

You both are growing up so quickly.

I remember the day that your mom gave birth to you.

You changed our lives forever.  You changed us forever for the better.  You are miracles.  We love you.

The other night, I was thinking about that...
and thinking about how quickly you both are growing up.  Not too long ago you were just little crawling babies and now you both are running around, jumping, climbing, and playing...singing songs, making funny faces, and acting so silly! You both are such big girls.

I just wanted to write this down, so I don't forget.

Soon, there will be boys.  (Not too soon, but it'll be sooner than I can imagine.)
Boys who you think might be funnier than your dad.
You might think they are more handsome than me.
Like better music than me.
You might even think they understand you better than me.
And there will be lots of them.  Trust me. 
But I promise you this.

There is only one...
who will love you more than me.

You might not trust me when I say that "this" boy or "that" boy isn't the one for you.  But believe me when I say that I want only the best for you.  I know he is out there.

And one day...
On your wedding day...
your mother and I will give you to him.

But until that day comes, through all the arguments we will undoubtedly have, know that I love you.
Help me to see what you are seeing...
Remind me that I don't know it all...
and I'll do the same for you.

Love you, my babies.
