2 years ago today...this was the last photo of my big โ€˜ol bump, taken at home the day before the arrival of our little wildlings. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
I was just about a week off of bed rest, and a little over a week away from my induction date (if the boys didnโ€™t decide to arrive sooner on their own!) With mono-di (identical) twins, the risks increase dramatically after 36 weeks and 5 days, so we were in this funny place where only days before we were praying for them to stay in and bake a little longer, and now we were hoping theyโ€™d decide to come on their own before we even got close to a time that would put them at risk. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
And, if Iโ€™m being honest...I was praying this was the weekend theyโ€™d decide to arrive. We had to switch from our midwives to an OB office mid way through our pregnancy due to the risks with identical twins. We went from knowing for sure who would be with us for the birth, to knowing that it would be 1 of 15 doctors, and weโ€™d only met 3 of them. Luckily, we had the greatest doula in the world, and that added immeasurable comfort and faith. However, I had peeped the hospital schedule, and saw that on Saturday the sweet, funny doctor whoโ€™d been with me for our pre-term labor scare was on call, and on Sunday, it was the doctor whoโ€™d been around a real long time, and heโ€™d seen it all. While he wasnโ€™t necessarily the warmest; I trusted him, and knew he was the only doctor Iโ€™d spoken to who was open to breech deliveries (if all else was progressing safely.) We felt really great about our hospital choice, so at the end of the day, we had faith in them, and agreed that as long as our boys arrive safely, the rest is all sprinkles. It was just that in a perfect world, it would be a Doctor we really clicked with (or, the doctor from This is Us...thatโ€™s what I secretly prayed for...๐Ÿ˜‚)
So, I did all the things...we ate spicy Indian food, went on long, lovely walks, I cleaned like a crazy person, decorated the tree on my own, made vanilla date milkshakes 3 times a day...and lo; less than 24 hours after this photo was taken, mid-cleaning spree #2, my water broke!

Itโ€™s no surprise that Iโ€™m feeling especially grateful for these 2 little guys today ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™ Also feeling so thankful for the one and only love of my life, our big, crazy, beautiful families, the most supportive, loyal, and loving friends I could ever wish to have, the brilliant and giving teachers I get to study under, my incredible dancers, and the sweetest fur babies in the world. And, all of you! Please consider yourself as hugged as when Milo looks at Loki and says โ€œawwww cuteโ€ and canโ€™t keep himself from squeezing his brother soooo tight. Thatโ€™s how Iโ€™m cyber hugging you, right now! ๐Ÿค— Happy Thanksgiving, friends ๐Ÿ’›

4 years young, and still the sweetest soul in all the land ๐Ÿ’• Happy Birthday to our Scoutypants. It seems that with each passing day, she just becomes more patient, loving, caring, good natured, and, hungry ๐Ÿ˜‰ But truly, she seems to go wherever she is needed, and gives love more freely than anyone Iโ€™ve ever known. To know this girl is to love her. I canโ€™t even begin to imagine our family, and my heart, without her. The boys have been hugging her and singing happy birthday all day, and she only covered her ears once ๐Ÿ˜‚ We adore you birthday girl!! ๐ŸŽ‚๐Ÿ—๐Ÿ„๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ
