My family has had to learn and adapt to new routines and changing the way they do things for and around Beckett. Him being a twin was hard because when we would do something for him, we also found ourselves doing the same for his twin, Pyper. I know she knows that he needs the extra help, but I still try an give her that little extra when I can. I feel guilty at times when I have to spend more one-on-one with Beckett and had to make Pyper wait. Her need for attention is also very high. I guess every toddler craves every bit of attention from their parents.

Autopilot is common place in my life. My five children keep me very busy. Four are usually in extracurricular activities. They have me running around to football games, practice, and therapy. It is all exhausting, but rewarding to see their successes. I know that God has given me the strength to endure. Without my wonderful family I don't know how I would do it. A friend of mine told me once that, "Children pick their mommies".. I know and believe that is to be true. It sometimes is still day by day, but I know that there are going to be many blessings later and my hope still never fades for my special boy.
