ok, friends…here it goes. i’m going to try to write this post without crying 18 million times. exactly 6 months ago at 9:43pm i was meeting the first love of my life. as i was laying on the operating table {shivering uncontrollably} i had so many thoughts and emotions running through my body. throughout my pregnancy we had many scares and were often told that we may not get to meet our babies {and there’s cry number one…coming right now…yep, it’s flowing…nothing i can do about it…i’m just going to embrace it…} so when breck came out screaming {and yes, i mean s.c.r.e.a.m.i.n.g.} the emotion just poured out of me and i thought to myself, i’ll never know love like this ever again. but then of course, two minutes later my much quieter baby girl came and my heart doubled right then and there {and also, that was the last time she was ever quieter than her brother}.


i never did share my birth story with you guys because it was just so personal, especially after everything we had been through. and the truth is, i’m still not ready to share it. maybe one day i won’t be able to shut up about it, but for now i’m still keeping it for just adam + i.


to say 6 months has flown by does not even do it justice. when the twins were in the nicu it felt like time was going too slow and i was so anxious to have both of my babies home, but now it feels like time just won’t slow down. most days i look at the clock and think, “how is it 6 o’clock already?! where has the day gone?”. the development that has happened over these first 6 months of the twins’ lives just amazes me. from itty bitty little blobs to independent, somewhat mobile, strong-willed little people – they just keep growing and changing everyday!



before i start crying for what feels like the millionth time today, i’ll just say…happy 6 months to my precious babies! the amount of joy that has been brought into our lives is indescribable. to say you have made me a better person is an understatement and to say i knew what love was before i met you is a lie. i strive to be a better version of myself everyday because of these two babies. this has been the best 6 months of my life and i’m so excited for the next 6! {they better bring more sleep}

      Thanks Nicole! I can’t believe how big they are now and how fast it has gone by! I’m really hoping time will slow down soon 😉
