Life with Coco and Gigi... and Jack-Jack too!

Life as a Mom, A Homesteader, A Blogger and A Wife.

Ready as we'll ever be

Well, I guess this is it. Eight and half more hours and we will be heading into the OR. I don't know whether I am in shock or denial or what, but it sure as heck doesn't feel real yet. I am so excited to meet these girls but I don't think it will hit home til I am holding those babies in my arms.

I am so glad that all of you have been a part of this process with me. Through infertility, pregnancy and some health scares you all were there for us through prayer and support. So thank you all!

I guess I should try to get some sleep although I think that will be a futile activity tonight. Brian and I will probably be staring at the ceiling for the next 5 hours. Mandy will update tomorrow and I will get on as soon as I can.

Ok, I am off into the great unknown. :>)

I hope all went smoothly and I can't wait to see pictures of the girls. I'm glad to see your journey come to a happy conclusion - I know the real journey is just beginning, but isn't it nice to finally have what you've worked so hard for :) Congratulations to you and Brian as you become a family of 4.

It's only fitting that the happiest day of your life also be the longest day of the year. I have been following your blog and I'm so excited for you and your husband. Congratulations Mom & Dad.



About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
