Most parents hope to give their children some of the things they never had themselves growing up. We are no exception. Joe has been dreaming about getting the kids a Powerwheels pretty much since Lily was 6 months old!:) But really, the most important thing that I wanted to give my children that I never had is each other. Yes, if you didn't know, I'm an only child. And I had a great family and great childhood growing up. I had good friends and didn't really feel like I was missing out on anything. Now, however, I sometimes can't help but wonder what it would have been like/be like to have brothers and sisters. Well, I guess now I technically do, since I have four (two sisters-in-law and two brothers-in-law) who are great. Still, being able to give Lily and Eli each other has been one of the biggest blessings in my life. I LOVE watching them together. I so look forward to watching their relationship grow and develop over the years. And, in a small way, I get to learn about what it means to have a sibling through them!
