When people ask me about the twins and how old they are, I often have to think for just a minute. My reply is often, "They're over a year old now!". And soon it will be, "They're a year and a half old!" One thing that I have noticed with Gus and Milena that I never had with my own kids is that I'm acutely aware of the 6th of every month. Their monthly birthday never slips my mind. This doesn't necessarily mean that I immediately know how many months old they are, and when they're 2(ish), I certainly won't be referring to them as being 26 months old, but I wonder if there will ever come a time when the 6th of the month arrives and I don't reminisce about "the 6th." The 6th is a very special day of the month for me. I think about Farid, George, Gustavo and Milena EVERY day, but I like the fact that on the 6th day of each month, I'm just a little more aware, reminded just a teeny bit more, of an unforgettable experience that will forever hold a space very near and dear to my heart.
Happy 6th of the month!
And in case you're wondering, Milena and Gustavo will be a year and a half old in 4 months.
