Our babies are officially due January 5, 2012 but as twins commonly go, we're expecting their arrival to be somewhere near the second week in December (optimistically.) The ultrasounds show one beautiful little girl, and one handsome little boy. We couldn't be more excited!
I was thinking today, how as much as I'd hoped and prayed and looked forward to being pregnant at some point, I never ever thought to ask for twins. It'd never dawned on me that I'd be the one to experience joys and challenges of twin motherhood. I must say, at this point in the game I feel pretty clueless but am so thankful for the opportunity to learn.
My support system is amazing... I have a husband who is truly the best man I've ever met, my best friend and partner, who I know will be an incredible Dad. My mother is my total rock, and will be here every step of the way - even moving in with us for the first few weeks until I figure out a process to this new adventure. My Dad loves me more than I could ever ask, and will do anything he can to make my experiences better. I can't wait to see them become grandparents and are so proud to be able to bring them this joy.
