You know what this day reminds me of? Exactly a year ago, March 31, 2012, was the day we found out we were going to have twins. What a happy day it was! I remember staring at our first ultrasound print that day, wide-eyed and blown away.
I guess I’ll never stop being amazed at the thought that these now-chubby little humans were once inside my womb, and were just tiny sacs in my ultrasound. How did you both fit in there, darlings?
More importantly, what a crazy year it has been! All in one year, I carried two babies in my womb for 35 weeks; survived morning sickness, food cravings, good and bad days; my first ever major surgery; became a mother.
I’m taking a moment now to breathe it all in and thank God for all the beautiful things that happened since we found out that there are two of them. That day I wrote,
My husband and I have been adjusting to pregnancy—easier on some days, more difficult on most days. But my heart rests in the assurance that all of this will be worth it when we finally hold our babies in our arms.
I could never be more right.
