moments 

Play dates. At this point, all this really means is babies are changed, fed, and rocked to sleep while mommies coo over babies, take pictures, and share mommy moments.

Moments that I dreamt about.
Moments I thought I would never get to experience.

Life with these babies seem so natural and normal….. there are moments when I truly forget all that I’ve been through to get to this point. Not because I want to put it behind me, but because I’m so consumed with the now. While at the same time, as I’m rocking them to sleep, I can’t help but to thank God for these babies and I remember how it felt to watch other women with their children, I saw the mom’s meeting at Chick-Fil-a for playdate lunches. Most of all, I remember the darkness, the sadness, deepest pain, and the struggle to believe.

I came across this scripture from this sweet blog and it’s such a wonderful place to find yourself in as a Christian.
Romans 4:18-23

18 Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations,just as it had been said to him, “So shall your offspring be.” 
19 Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead—since he was about a hundred years old—and that Sarah’s womb was also dead. 
20 Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, 
21 being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.
22 This is why “it was credited to him as righteousness.”

Isn’t that powerful? Do we believe God that much for what we desire? Do we trust him that much with our dreams and hopes? Do we choose to look to our Father and believe what He has told us rather than looking around in desperation at the circumstances that we find ourselves in?

How I want to be so strong and faithful. Despite what is TRUE and REAL, to still believe God for everything He said without a moment’s doubt.

Take everything to God in prayer, right?! LOL…….

Beauty beyond words

(null) Life as a mama just gets better everyday.

Every sweet, new sound or development warms my heart and makes me so proud. Their preference of me when they’re seeking comfort makes me feel good, worthwhile, and meaningful.

Successfully getting through each day…. Dr visits that boast growth in inches, pounds, and ounces make me feel like I’m doing my job well. When they search and smile at my voice thrills me like nothing else.

Grateful doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of how I am…..

Forever indebted.

{Loving my earrings from @minmacshop … do yourself a favor and check out her Etsy page here!!}

How are we feeling??!?!?!
We’re doing pretty good! Working hard to eat much more and rest as much as I can. I’m starting to become a bit more uncomfortable and I tire out easily, but we’re doing so well it’s hard to be down about much of anything!

What’s going on with the bump?!?!

I visibly noticed the growth in my belly between Wednesday and Sunday. It was pretty neat…. I feel like my girls have bony elbows and knees because these pokes are so very sharp! They love to move and play…. Baby B moving much more than A which has been their trend over the course of the pregnancy, so I can’t wait to see how their personalities manifest once they’re “out”. lol. One thing for sure is that I am definitely growing and for that I am grateful!!

Anxious…. Patient… 9 more weeks to go. Calm…. Excited… I’m going to be a mama soon. Sore… Tight… I need a good stretching… Buying baby needs for sweet little baby girls is surreal. A year ago I never would have imagined that we would be here. That I would be expecting two baby girls of my very own. I don’t think I can say how grateful I am, how excited we are, how blessed beyond measure and our wildest dreams. God has been so good to us; it’s unreal. I never thought this would happen. I’m humbled at the opportunity to have had such an uneventful pregnancy, humbled to have such a sweet “ending” to our infertility story, for my girls to be big and healthy. It’s  blessing.

Anything else?
uh… yea!!!! I had a pretty sweet week in the mail delivery department this past week….. One box just happened to be filled with the most amazing pretties sent with an insane amount of love.
My friend Mindy of @minmacshop was kind enough to send me not one, not two, but three pairs of her amazing earrings. I’m so simple when it comes to jewelry….. and, I usually wear a pair of pearl earrings or something similar that doesn’t dangle except for when I’m getting all jazzed up and I’ll go for something a lot more fancy! So, these are right up my alley! Not only do I love the jewelry, I love the packaging! She’s such a sweet, sweet soul and along with her earrings come the most encouraging cards that can be posted on your mirror or kept on your desk to remind you of the gospel and truth! ALONG with, super cute hearts that accompany the earrings in the most darling box. Her heart is in every detail of the creativity behind the designs of the earrings and the packaging! She cares, y’all, and there’s nothing I love more than passion and using your love for Christ and your passion to encourage and uplift others! She’s a keeper for sure! Christmas is around the corner, these beautiful earrings would make perfect stocking stuffers or simple gifts to turn someone’s frown upside down!photo 5.PNG
Besides these super cute earrings……. we have NINE MORE WEEKS to go before meeting our sweet girls!!! Can’t wait!!!

From mommy….
Mama’s trying to pack on a few pounds……. so enjoy all the tasties for now!! I hear you guys are growing well and are B I G….. I’m so grateful for that!!! Seriously. I get to see you guys in a couple of more day and I’m praying we’ll get good news just as we have over the past seven months! Stay put, play nicely, and keep baking for me, ok??

– mommy
