    I can’t tell you how much I needed to read this. My twins will be here in 2 days and I feel like almost every other twin Mom out there feels the need to “scare” me or something. All I hear is the negativity and how hard it will be. I gather that…I get it. I have a toddler, I know this will be tough…but goodness, can ya not encourage me a bit and tell me of the wonderful things?!?
    SO thank you thank you thank you 🙂

    What a great read! We are blessed with so many twins in our family. My grandparents and dad are all twins, not to mention a couple of twin cousins and aunts/uncles. Crazy wonderful is how Grandaddy described it.

    and, Cheaper By the Dozen is one of my Favorite books too! Thanks for sharing a peek inside your life.

    Blessings, Sudie

  3. Twins are hands down the best thing that happened to me. My girls have made me a better mom 100times over. Seeing them growing and changing together makes me sad for their singleton sister (Delainey) and for Brody who lost his twin at 15 weeks.

    Although I think my 4 kids take up more space than your 6… lol

  4. Having twins at first was scary to me. But I can’t imagine my life with out my twins. One of the best things I like is waking up and hearing them “talk” to each other. They have their own language. I just lay in my bed and listen to them as they bond and wait for me or their dad to come get them. They are such good babies!

  5. I so needed to be reminded of this today! I have a 3 year old, a 19 month old and twin 4 month olds and life seems so overwhelming today and I was actually just sitting here crying over the fact that I have twins and wish I didn’t! I just needed the reminder that they are a special and precious gift and there are so many things that are sweet and special about them. I desperately love tandem nursing my girls because they grab hands and hold onto each other and play with each other’s faces! Always makes my heart melt!

    • Awww Jenni! I’m glad I could help. I’d love to say that it stops being overwhelming, but it just gets different. Currently I have a pair of 2 year olds crying for no apparent reason in the kitchen. Hugs to you! And take lots of pictures, you will treasure them when those babies are big!

    Oh my goodness, this is SO true!!! The double cuddles truly are amazing. And the way they entertain each other? What a blessing! My girls are currently in the crawling-around-exploring-together stage. it’s pretty much the cutest thing ever. 🙂

    • Isn’t it fun! (Let me tell you it is way better than the two year-old double Target melt down that I encountered the other day! It is a great thing that most of the time they are charming and sweet!
