Everyday we have fun together. Both boys adore getting attention and will ham it up when they know they're being watched. They are clearly starting to understand when we say things to them like, "bedtime!' and "do you want to nurse?" Asher says "good good," and Benjamin will say "mama" when I prompt him.
Asher has stopped nursing before bed, and is picky about when he does nurse. He may be ready to wean, or getting there, which is hard for me to handle. I definitely have an emotional attachment to nursing.

We have more family coming later this week- my cousin is coming with her husband, whom we have not yet met, and my uncle (her father) is also coming to town. We're having a small celebration of their marriage, since we could not attend the wedding, and she will finally get to meet the boys!
I cannot believe that 2 years ago at this time, I was in the midst of the IVF cycle that would bring me these boys. I also cannot believe that we have made it to 16 months without any major illness or grave concern. We are so lucky! Everyday I kiss my boys and hope they know just how much I love them, and how grateful I feel to have them in my life.
