Happy Labor Day! (And a Surprise or Two!)

Hey everyone, just wanted to pop in and wish you all a great Labor Day! We hope you’ve got something fun in store. :)

Talking of Labor, guess who’s going to be in labor in about 6 months…

We’re so excited to share I’m expecting TWINS in February!

The quote above is what Em said when the Dr was giving me my first ultrasound. He was quiet and looking around and then all of a sudden Em yelled very loudly and slowly “OH….MY….GOSH, THERE’S TWO”.

After 6 1/2 years of trying, we’re over the moon our first IVF attempt worked. Brock and I feel VERY VERY blessed, and can’t decide if we should tag this post under “worth the splurge” or “deals” since we got the best two-for-one ever!

Let the crazy times roll…….eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek!

PS. Aren’t the little booties adorable? Mum (or Nanny) has been a busy bee since she heard the news. Oh the energy and excitement good news can bring! Thanks Mum x

    […] I’m also thinking of these stacked up in their brown paper bags as favors for the big baby shower. […]
