today is the DAY...

September 23rd, 2008
40 weeks
our baby girls were due today
it was a beautiful day... the sky was bright blue
... the sun was shining
... the trees were rustling in the breeze
... a beautiful day
... just like the day they were born

It's hard to believe they are 5 weeks old today
... that they *could* still be in my belly or only a few days old

I guess it's REALLY time to take my ticker down now {grin}

  18. Beautiful baby girls, gotta luv em! I only had 2 boys before I had my 2 girls, so I can only imagine how thrilled you were to buy PINK!!! (and yes, I think it's time to change your ticker)! Take care and enjoy those babies! (and the boys too!!!)

  22. They are so beautiful!! I'm really shocked that with all the babiness in Blogland right now, I'm not getting baby fever! lol.

  23. I have "lurked" at your sight before but never commented. I was sad to hear about the accident but so glad your babies were delivered safely. I know the feeling of not having things go the way you had hoped they would go. It's okay to grieve for what would have been, even while you're thankful for what is.

    I love looking at your pictures - you capture things so well. And you have such beautiful models! I thought I was done with 4 but then I see your baby girls and I start wondering. I have 4 - an 8 yo son, 6 yo daughter and 19 mo boy/girl twins. I miss that baby stage but am lovin the crazy toddler stage, too!

  28. Ooh my goodness, I just want to reach into the screen and kiss those beautiful faces!! They are the cutest little girls! I just found your blog on another lady's from here in Perth and I am sitting here 'oohing and aaahing' over your adorable children, wow,
    6!, I had to call my hubby in and show him your family. I did it one at a time, starting with you and your hubby and going up through the children - his face was priceless when we came to the twins! How do you manage with so many little ones!!? although I see you have your life firmly planted in the blessings of the Lord! I hope you don't mind if I read your blog - just too much sweetness to pass up!
    Take care sweet Brittany and May the Lord bless you and all your family soooo much!
    Much love from
    Jenny in Perth, Western Australia

    ps - you are an amazing photographer!!
