They're Here

Today is the day my life changed forever, but in a way that is too exciting to put into words! It started out as an ordinary Monday morning. Got up, stopped for breakfast and went to another appointment for fetal stress testing. The only thing missing was my hubby. He worked until 3am and for the first time skipped going to the appointment since it was at 7am. Today I found out I would be meeting my precious little angels in just a matter of hours, a month before their actual due date. I was elated.

I was taken back into the OR around 4:30pm and at 5:00 and 5:01 the twins made their first breaths into this world. They were very healthy, 6lbs, 5oz and 6lbs, 3oz. When I woke up and was taken back to my room, I finally got to meet them. I could tell immediately how different their personalities were. I began to realize that I was truly blessed to become a mother of twins.


  1. happy birthday to your girls. They were very good size for twins.

  2. Wow! I would say so! Congratulations! God Bless you and your whole family.
    I'm an identical twin by the way. ;-)

  3. What can one say but God is so good... He always gives us far more than we deserve... starting with His Son.. His love... His mercy... the BVM.... but on 10/26 He said "I give you a double portion of my love. Treat them with extra servings of tenderness and protection. And if you do, I'll doubly reward you. Blessings.
