Let Me Reintroduce Myself


Please don't hate me.

In June of 2010 I found myself unexpectedly pregnant. Being my first pregnancy, I assumed I was bigger than I should be, but wasn't completely sure. In July, after weeks of my sister telling me I was having twins, we found out we were having twins. (I used to feel really guilty that we had twins without IVF. I also felt guilty that I could even get pregnant because I read a lot of infertility blogs.) These babies were loved from the moment I even suspected I was pregnant.



Boyfriend and I have been together since December 2008 and we've both taken to parenthood naturally and whole-heartedly. It hasn't always been an easy journey, but we would trade our fraternal boys E & E a.k.a. Peanut & Lovebug for anything in this world.

Now they're almost 16 months old (on Thursday!) and such a fun age. They're both walking, starting to say easy words - ish=fish - and let me know when their diapers are dirty.
When I was younger, I always said I wanted twins, I never knew it was an actual possibility! You know how you never realize you were missing something until you get it? That's how I feel with them. I always knew I wanted kids, but I never realized how much they would make my life complete. I am so so ecstatic to have these Bambinos and I thank God every day for them.


Linking up with Heather for a fun MOMs (Mom's of Multiples) link up

  2. Your boys are adorable. I found your blog from Heather's linkup. I am wondering why you felt guilty that you didn't have your twins IVF? I have twin fraternal girls who are 9 months. Stop by our page! preemietwinsandme.blogspot.com

  4. They're fraternal?? They look so much alike! It's so funny that somehow, even though fraternal twins technically shouldn't look any more alike than regular siblings, they always seem to. They're so cute and you're a wonderful mama who shouldn't feel guilty for having incredibly loved, well-taken-care-of babies. :) I hope I get to meet them someday!
