Dear Sydney and Remy:
Today is a big day!
Today you turn 14 weeks old, and mommy is going back to work.
When I got up this morning, it was raining and dreary. It seemed appropriate, though. I told myself Heaven was crying so I didn’t have to. The truth is that I cried on my drive to work. In fact, I have been holding back tears all day long.
I have been with you every day of your precious lives. I know every inch of your tiny little bodies. I know every cry, every whimper and every coo. I know when you are hungry, mad, happy or sad. I know when you have a dirty diaper. I know your poo faces and sleepy faces. I can tell when you want to be held, and I know by the sound of your breathing when you finally fall asleep listening to the beat of my heart. I know when you are going to wake up, and I know when you are fighting sleep. I know when you want me to talk to you, and I know how to calm you down.
