In honor of our twin GIRLS, I am writing this post in pink! Sorry if it is hard on your eyes! We are so excited to be having more girls! I was hoping for girls anyway, and Ryan was just as happy either way. I was planning on waiting until Wednesday to share, but Ryan accidentally spilled the beans too soon on fb, so I decided to go ahead and share as well.
It is funny--most people's reaction is, "Aww, I bet you were hoping for boys." Quite the contrary! I am sure boys are awesome, but I think that God gives you whatever He gives you for a reason. He thinks we would be great parents to two more girls, and he has also given me a desire for them! How perfect. People especially assume that Ryan was hoping for boys, but not all guys have a strong desire to have boys. Ryan said he would like to see what boys are like, but he knows he loves girls and that he will love having more of them.
My ultrasound was totally normal. Both babies are growing right on target for their due date. Baby A is 12 oz. and Baby B is 11 oz. Baby A is head down right now, and Baby B is the opposite. In all the pictures of them, we kept seeing the other little one's feet kicking around by her sister's head. We are so thankful for a healthy pregnancy so far and healthy babies.
