Blessings to the four of you. They are so adorable and you two (the parents, that is) are in for the most amazing journey of your life. Enjoy every minute of it, it goes sooooo fast!! My son is about to be 19 and I can't believe it. My offering to Xander and Avery:
Excepted from Kahil Gibran:
Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them,
but seek not to make them like you.
And from Erma Bombeck:
Agreeing to have a child is agreeing to have your heart walking around outside your body for the rest of your life
