The Sweet Life | At Home With Our Twins
It is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all.
- Laura Ingalls Wilder
We're thrilled to share the arrival of our twins, P & K!
Three weeks ago, our twins entered the world and it was the most beautiful day of my life! All the cliches are true, and nothing anyone tells you can prepare you for the overwhelming amount of love you have for this new addition and in our case for our two new additions! Their birth day was one filled with joy, excitement and a whole lot of love!
P (below left) was 5 lbs 8 oz | 18.5 inches and K was 5lbs 12 oz | 19.5 inches.
On the day we were scheduled to go home, I ended up in the ICU due to postpartum preeclampsia, along with some other minor complications ~ no. fun. at. all! But thankfully this happened after the twins birth, causing them no harm and while my recovery has been a bit slower than I had hoped, I'm so grateful to finally be home with my new family of four (five with our sweet Rawley dog!)
The past few weeks have been spent simply enjoying life with our little ones, getting to know their personalities and enjoying the sweet moments that will all too quickly become memories. Parker is our precious little boy who already shows signs of his fathers sweet, caring temperament.
And Kennedy is our sweet little girl who's not afraid to be vocal, she has her mama's spunk!
The two of them love to snuggle up! Place them on opposite sides of a crib and they'll scoot and shimmy until we find them like this:
MELTS. MY. HEART!
Mornings are my favorite time of day, and watching Brian be a dad has made my love for him as a husband, friend and father grow more than I ever knew possible!
To say we're lucky is an understatement and not a day goes by that we give thanks!
Our life has never been sweeter and we can't wait for the great, big, wonderful, crazy adventure ahead!
Thanks for all your love & support during my pregnancy and now as a new family!
It means so much!
