Amazing

My girls are so amazing. I guess everyone thinks that about their babies, but truly, these girls are special. No really, everyone says so (well, everyone who's related to them so they might be biased.... ) I am probably jinxing it, but they are SUCH good sleepers. I worry they sleep too much. They go to bed around 9:30, 10pm, I wake them around 11:30 or midnight and give them a quick bottle, and they sleep until 8, 8:30, even 9:30 in the morning. It's nuts.

They have been sort of cranky lately but I think it's teething. I gave Katie a frozen washcloth to chew on today (per Nestie advice, those Nesties are geniuses) and she loved it. Chewed away for a long time.

Also amazing- this is so cliche but seriously, I am awed every day by the fact that I love them more than the day before. Every day I think, this is it.... this is the PINNACLE of love, I could not adore these girls any more than I already do... then I wake up the next morning, and yep, I love them more. It doesn't seem possible.

Same thing with cuteness. You think they cannot get any cuter, it's impossible. I tell them every day, if you get any cuter it will kill me, I will just KEEL over from your cuteness. But they continue to get cuter anyway. And I'm still alive.

Proof of increasing cuteness, the amazing photos Matt took of the girls on Monday. He did such a freaking awesome job, my whole family is just crazy about the pictures. He's still working on them, but most of them are up.

I hope it's okay I posted the password.... I just couldn't wait to share one more day. Look at those big blue eyes, how could you resist those? We sure can't.

And I look at the pictures, and Jack is there. The blue quilt in the background of Charlotte's pics was made by my mom for Jack. My bracelet with his name is visible in a few shots. Little things, things I didn't plan, they're there. He's there. My Jack.

Love the pictures. I especially like the ones of all of you. It is great that Jack is "in" them.

I'm so jealous of your sleepers! I have a good sleeper but she still eats every 4 hours. YAWN.

They really are beautiful girls. I love the way the pictures came out. I think he really captured their personalities!

Isn't it that love for your child just incredible? It honestly just keeps growing...

I love the pictures! They are incredibly beautiful! And it is so wonderful that Jack was in them too :)

Crystal said...

Love the pictures! They are all wonderful. The girls are beautiful and you look fantastic. I really like the pics of the 4 of you as well. Love them.

Sarah said...

Those are all so cute. I think #31 is too cute as a family pic. It isn't your typical sitting all together. It's real. They are all so good.
Jack will always be there, when you don't even expect it or try.

emily said...

you are such a beautiful family

The pictures are so beautiful! I think I mentioned this before but I am so jealous that your girls are sleeping so well!! We are still struggling with that but I totally understand the cuteness factor! Every night I tell my son while he's screaming for someone to pick him up "you're lucky you're so cute!!!"!

Beautiful photos Megan. And I"m certainly jealous of their sleeping! Glad you're having so much fun with them!

Gillian said...

Matt did a FANTASTIC job-- but then again, look at who he was taking pictures of! ;-)

Awww Jack.. he IS always with you!

Minnie said...

Oh my GOSH! They are beautiful. I don't think that you'll be able to just pick a few of those pictures. They all came out great.

Gwen (ilovea2) said...

Oh, those are so cute!! They are beautiful girls. And I know what you mean about thinking you just can't love them any more...and then you do. :) And I love that not only can you see your bracelet, you can even read Jack's name. Beautiful.

Jack is there, Megan. He will always be around. The pictures of the girls are amazing. Just breathtaking. What a lucky woman you are!

Sommer said...

its really IS amazing.. How your love for them grows day after day. And everyday they DO get cuter and cuter and start doing things that make you just want to take and lock up forever.

Also, everytime someone would ask me.. how is she sleeping and id tell them pretty good.. it would totally jinx it.. thats why now.. i dont tell them anything.. I just say.. well you know..LOL

Jack will ALWAYS be there,, no matter what is going on and whats in the background!

Rachel said...

I don't know if I have ever seen eyes so clear and so blue! The girls are gorgeous! I love that Jack's blanket ended up in the pictures and your bracelet too. He's with you.

Allie said...

#6 might be the cutest thing I've ever seen in my life. Your girls have such vibrant, visible personalities. I love the touches that show Jack as well. Thank you for sharing them!

pam said...

Rebecca Nixie said...

I know you said you don't think the girls are identical, but as a stranger, I can't tell them apart!! The pictures are AWESOME!!! How will you choose???

Katie said...

Thank you for sharing those! They are so adorable!!

Jessica said...

Megan, I hope you know: you don't HAVE to choose, lol. Matt gives ALL of those pics to you on a disk!

They will all be yours in a few days.

He will work on the photo of Jack's bracelet--no problem! :)

They really came out so nice--but the subjects were pretty beautiful, so it was easy work! ;)

Thanks for sharing those Megan, they are fantastic and the girls are beautiful! And like everyone else has said, Jack was with you that day and everyday.

Amanda said...

Adorable! The girls look identical in the first two pictures, too. :) Makes me want to make an appointment with a professional photographer for my two. I wish we lived closer to you.

megan said...

Your pictures are beautiful!! Your words are so incredible, I try to discribe the way that I feel about my daughter, and can never quite put it into words, but you sumed it up wonderfully. My heart feels like it is going to burst with all the love that I feel, and everyday I am amazed how my love grows. I think of Jack often and he will live on forever in the hearts and thoughts of everyone who has come across your beautiful words. He will never be forgotten.

My little girl has always been a fantastic sleeper. And rumor is I was too. So maybe you lucked out!?

They are beautiful. I have tears in my eyes after reading your post. Jack IS there.

My favorite one is the second...the one of you holding the girls sitting.

Kim said...

Your family is BEAUTIFUL!

Karen said...

Your girls are absolutely stunning. They are amazing and you look so perfect with them.

STUNNING! Your family is so beautiful. I love the color photos of the girls b/c of their big blue eyes! I like the black and white of your husband with one of the girls.

Ya know what? I'm the one who replied last week about your girls being idents. They look so identical in these photos. The only normal discrepancies I see (and my identical girls have always had these discrepancies too) but one of your girls looks like she's a few pounds more than the other one. The shapes of their faces are just a tad different, one of your girls' faces are rounder than the tiny petite one. And, their expressions are different. My idents had the same issues. I bet the more they grow, the more alike they will look!

Great pictures. Loved the picture of one of the girls with Jack's quilt in the back. I was feeling Jacks presence in the picture -

Very cool! Thanks for sharing with us.
Take care...
PS~ love your bracelet too. I have one with my Angel's name on it and it's always so special to me!

Rachel said...

OH MY GOSH!!!! What a beautiful family!!! Number 6 is my absolute favorite.. i made DH come into look :-) It should go on a post card!! You should be so proud.. and what a hot couple you two are :-)

Patyrish said...

The girls are just BEAUTIFUL, I agree each time I see them they are cuter than the last time! Loved the tiara picture! Wha a princess.

The one of your "Jack" bracelet got me. I just sat and stared at it with tears in my eyes. It just amazes me the hearts and lives such a little baby can touch without even uttering a single word.

I'll never forget Jack.

Harris Boys said...

megan, the pics are amazing and I love the one with your braclet...too precious and your right Jack is always there. God bless you and your adorable family.

Collegegirl said...

Jack will always be in every family picture! He and the girls were born together and he will always be in their hearts.
You are so lucky to have girls that sleep through the night!! What an amazing mama!

Becky said...

Wow! They look amazing. PJ looks so happy with his little girls! You look beautiful too- the one of your bracelet was very poignant. I liked that one a lot. And good choice with the outfits- the girls look so darn cute!
