Everyone said that we would have our hands full. Man were they right. I have to give huge props upfront to my wife, the brave soul that she is, who stays home with the kids while I'm at work. Even with her getting ready to start back up with taking classes, she is crushing it...
I can remember telling people in high school that I couldn't wait to be a dad. Sure, I had no clue when that was going to happen, but I did know I was excited for it. Little did I know when Alexis and I got married that as we would be coming up on 4 years of marriage we would have a 21 month old and 5 month old. What is the heck were we thinking?!
Being a dad to these two has been one of the greatest joys in my life, sure there are days that are extremely hard, but I wouldn't trade it for anything. For real, Alexis is currently sick, both kids are teething (pretty sure) and napping. I took a half day so I could stay home and take care of the kiddos and clean so Alexis can sleep. There is just something so incomprehensible to me when I look at my kids: "How did I get so lucky?" and "How did I make such cute freaking kids?!"
Seriously though, if you haven't seen a picture of my kids, ya'll are seriously missing out. They are so cute (look at the photo below!) I really did luck out with such great kids, Avalynn is finally getting to that age where she is smiling, giggling, moving around, and teething (yes, this sucks), and Cameron is coming up on 2 years which means he can be like a sour patch kid. First he's sour, and then he is extremely sweet. Again, I wouldn't trade the headaches he gives either of us for anything. Knowing that they both have the some of the best (and unfortunately worst) parts of Alexis and I, I'm confident, Lord willing, and only by His grace, that they will both grow up to be amazing people doing amazing things in our world.
For the time being, having 2 under 2 is a mix of fun days and really, really, REALLY hard ones. I'm thankful for family who help us, friends who encourages us, and a marriage where we give each other grace for the journey.
