52 Weeks of Happiness: Week 1

I've been behind in blogging lately. In fact, I still have one last Disney post to share. But that will have to wait. I was going through some old pictures recently, and this one stuck out in my mind.  Partly it's because 4 years ago this month, I was shocked at an ultrasound appointment. I was pregnant with my second child. We were headed in for the 20 week ultrasound to see if it was a boy or a girl.

There are the two heads.

I've said this before. The tech thought we knew it was TWINS.

We did NOT.

Life changes when you have a baby. Life does back-flips, somersaults, and trampoline jumps when you have two babies. (Especially when you have an almost 2 year old at the same time.) We've made it through the sleepless nights (no wait, they still get up in the night), the trying twos, the TERRIBLE threes. My babies turn four this summer. I can't even fathom it.

But these babies preschoolers are my happiness, my heart.

I have a girlfriend who had twins. They ran her ragged in the early years, but it's been a wonderful experience.

I can't even imagine that surprise at a 20 week ultrasound! I'm pregnant with my second child right now and my husband was really bummed to only see one baby at the ultrasound. I'm sure it's rough, but so much fun at the same time!

"There are the two heads." What a moment that must have been. Love the picture. ~Krista
