What's that I see? TWO babies??

I'm sure all my blog readers have either heard about our crazy news, or have deserted me since I haven't posted in a month... in either case, this is why I haven't been posting, nor will post as consistently as before for awhile: TWINS!!!! I'm still in shock. I am living the life that happens to other people.. the kind you read about in the paper :-) Posted by Picasa

Why didn't we listen to him?

8 months ago...

Daddy, talking to the kids at dinner time, "Hey guys, guess what?? mommy has a baby in her tummy!! You're going to have another brother or sister to play with soon!!"

E and Z: "yay!!"

Mommy: " Do you think it's a little brother, or a little sister?"

E: " I think it's a sister!!"

H: throws her bowl of food on the floor (about the only thing that hasn't changed in my life in the last month)

Z: " I think it's TWO brothers!!"

Mommy and Daddy: (nervous laughter) " uh... No Z, there's only one baby. A brother would be nice wouldn't it?.. I guess we'll just have to see what God wants to bless us with".

Fast forward to the afternoon of September 25th where we learn via ultrasound that we had two babies coming soon...

... sooner than we think!!
