Rub-a-dub-dub, twins in a tub!

We LOVE bathtime around here!! The girlies are getting so big, so fast. I know I say that all the time, but now they are playing in the tub (gotta get some bath toys!)! It seems like just yesterday we were sponge bathing them in the sink and they were screaming! Now they sit in their bath seats (thanks Shari!!) and splash and play and hate getting out! I love these girlies so much! When I look at their pictures, I can't control my emotions, I'm so overwhelmed with love for them. I have prayed for my children for as long as I can remember and now here they are and they are amazing! More beautiful, fun and precious than I ever could have imagined. I praise God for these girls and pray for them constantly. Sometimes I can't even believe the things I pray for... their future husbands, the rough middle school years, their relationship with David and I, their relationships with their cousins, grandparents, siblings, etc, etc, etc. And I pray that God will always remind me how precious my time is with them, and he is good and faithful to remind me of this in some of the most surprising times, when I'm feeding them their bottle, playing peek-a-boo, changing their diaper, rocking them in the middle of the night. So many wonderful memories, sounds and smells that I don't ever want to forget!

Oh wait... I was supposed to be sharing some fun photos from bath time, right? Well, here they are!






And, of course, a classic...

Love those! Pretzel is looking more and more like a Kruithof. :) And how great for both of them that their mom and dad are already praying for their future!

I look forward to, and love all of your posts. I think this is my favorite one yet! There are no better words to read from a daughter-in-law than the ones you have written about your prayers for our grandchildren. Thank you!

How funny! We just took a mohawk picture of Savannah in the bath for the first time yesterday! I think you and I may be twins 25 months apart! And I just have to say that your in-laws write the sweetest comments! Those girls are blessed all the way around!
