Leading a Double Life

Can you believe it? We survived a year of no sleep, double the diapers, double the laundry, double the joy, and fatigue to some exponential factor I can't begin to explain. Yes, 7 and 8 of 8 celebrated their big day. To form, 7 of 8 was lady-like and delicate with her cake, while 8 of 8 began by trying to pick up the whole cake in his mouth and followed up with a double-handed grab. At the one hour mark, 7 of 8 was still happily eating away, one finger-lick at a time, while 8 of 8 had demolished his cake, smeared frosting on anything within reach, experienced a complete sugar rush that resulted in pounding and jiggling his highchair until it looked like he was attached to a jackhammer, had a full bath and passed out asleep as he experienced a sugar crash.

We were blessed to have one set of the grandparents come to town for the festivities and had numerous singing phone calls from many other of the crew. We are so thankful to the Lord for such an amazing year...
