The Calm Before the Rainbow

Last night, Ken, Tootsie, and I sat in the nursery and discussed our hopes and dreams for the future.

Well, we did mostly. Tootsie was counting down her days as the only baby in the house and made sure her head was in my lap.

We sat until the sun went down and the night lights came on.

I love talks like that.

Ken smiled and said, "It is the calm before the storm."

I couldn't help but laugh, because it is true.

At 37 1/2 weeks pregnant with twins, we are anticipating their sweet arrival at any moment.

I have so enjoyed watching my bellying doing the "wave," trying to figure out all the bumps that suddenly appear, and feeling them go crazy anytime I type.

Apparently, typing is their jam.

Friday was my last day at work for this school year.

No one could say the word, "bye."

I will be back in July even if all four of us are at daycare, crying.

I am thankful that I work in a school and community where everyone supports and helps everyone else.

Our babies are so loved, and they don't even know the half of it.

We are cherishing every moment before they arrive, because we know things will be different once they are here and bags under eyes will be highly attracted.

We so look forward to the coos, grunts, cries, smiles, and screams.

Ken looks forward to dirty diapers for the first time ever in his life.

(Which reminds me, I need to go and get some vapor rub for him.)

Snuggles and story time and laughter and first experiences are in our very near future.

We know that we will not get everything just right the first time, but memories will be made.

We can't wait to share these precious blessings from God with you all!

It will not be long before some rainbows appear!

  1. I've been meaning to message you to see how you are doing. Then I realize a diaper needs to be changed or she's hungry. Ha! I promise I've been thinking about you though. I know y'all are excited and I can't wait to see the two of you holding your precious little ones!!!


Thank you for visiting! We love hearing from you!
