The boys arrived this morning and recently went to bed. Day One is in the books. Whew!
Some friends of ours recently adopted a baby girl. We were discussing their experience and ours and came to the conclusion that we are all sudden parents. Rather than the typical pregnancy and childbirth experience, our parenthood happens all of a sudden. We miss all the milestones (growing baby bumps or even years of life) and then one day get a call. And then, we are parents.
Today, we became parents. The reality has not sunk in yet. But here we are.
