Today is Ben and Sophie's 5th birthday and I still can't believe it myself. It really seems like such a short time ago that I was in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of Mercer Hospital in Trenton holding each of them, one at a time, in the palm of my hand, just a little over 2 pounds (Sophie) and 3 pounds (Ben) each.
I know what I am reflecting upon isn't anything earth shattering or unique to anyone whose had children, but I am astounded by how quickly the time has flown.
They have amazed me every day of those 5 years, and I want to say "thank you" to them somehow for what they've taught me. I hope I can figure out how to do that.
Happy Birthday kiddos. Daddy loves you more than you'll ever know. But I'm working on that.
