Uncle Jordan came to visit!!!
Until next post…
Yes, that is what I now say on a daily basis, “vroom vroom.” I am the mother of twin boys so it was inevitable, right?
Our new obsession is CARS, TRUCKS and anything with WHEELS that we can push around and say, “vroom vroom.”
Gotta love the BELLY!
I have to admit…..I love being a mom to boys. Growing up with an older brother, Jordan, I was always into G.I. Joe, baseball cards, Star Wars and boy things. Yes, my mother TRIED so hard to get me to LOVE ballet, dance and girly things, but I was a tomboy at heart. When we were finding out the gender of our twins I was PETRIFIED of twin girls. I didn’t know if I could handle all the PINK and DOLLS and GIRLY things. When the woman doing our gender sonogram announced it was twin boys I felt a bit of relief. Jason, on the other hand, was HOPING for one of each so he took a few minutes to convince it was TWO boys. Even my OB had to literally pull the sonogram photo out and POINT OUT the boy parts on BOTH babies. It was comical. The DAD took convincing while I was content with my two little buddies. We always said we would have TWO babies, we just didn’t think it would be a “two-for-one” deal so I think the ideal outcome would be one of each and be done.
Everyone always asks if we will have more. GOD WILLING we have one more. Yes, I only wanted two kids at first but things are different now. Having twins means my kids will BOTH turn 16 at the same time, graduate high school at the same time, etc. I would like to stagger out those moments if possible. And even though I had a HORRIBLE pregnancy, I kind of want to experience it once more.
Now, being surrounded by ALL BOYS I wouldn’t mind a little girl down the road…..maybe ONE day. 🙂 All that being said, it’s all in God’s hands. Either way, I’m so happy to have my BUDDIES to play cars with every day.
Until next post…
I love having twins. I really do. Even when they were not yet sleeping through the night (I was blessed with a very involved husband even at 3 am feedings) or during the time of bottles and spit-up, I have always loved having twins.
Growing up with an older brother I knew I wanted more than one child. Now, seeing my TWO together brings so much joy to my heart! When I lost my mom at 18 I was so thankful to have my brother, Uncle Jordan. He is truly someone I can talk about anything with and the ONE person who remembers our mother like I do. I pray nothing happens to my husband or I at an early age but if it were to happen I’m so thankful our boys have each other.
Watching them together is so fun! They play and giggle and hug and kiss and dance together. Yes, there are spats here and there but for the most part it’s love and fun.
It’s also kind of weird to never know what it is like to only have ONE child. When people often ask us, “How do you do it?!” We always reply, “We dont’ know anything ELSE!” It’s weird but also kind of refreshing. Never knowing what it’s like to only have one, I’ve always been aware of my attention being spread equally and making sure each boy knows how much I love him. There are times when one will wake from a nap early and I sneak in to get him out of his crib for some one-on-one time before his brother wakes up. But for the most part I am reminding myself DAILY to always treat them equally and acknowledge each as an individual for they are SO different!
It’s also fun having twins because you instantly bond with anyone who has multiples. It is kind of like a secret code. I’ve made so many new friends just by having twins….on Facebook, in the blog world and in real life. And anytime anyone comes to me with questions about having twins I get so excited because I can pass on all the knowledge and wisdom that I was so lucky to receive.
Love my twins.
Until next post…..they will be 18 months tomorrow!!!
