I’m trying to remember back to the exact day. It was very surreal. Finally pregnant and finally a sibling for my little girl. A sister I prayed. I think I said it out loud over and over again so God could hear me loud and clear. “Give my girl a little sister. Please Lord.” How perfect it would be. How enormous a love would transpire amongst my household in a pink fluffy fairytale. Honestly, I thought I had it in the bag. Then the tiny little computer screen showed two babies in my belly, not one, and only a few short weeks later, the doctors would tell me that I have two identical boys arriving in 7 months. BOYS. 


I got pregnant with twins on the first try. I know. That's nuts and ridiculous. But it's also God's work. Or as my husband said, "God's funny work." And I was scared to death. Twins?!! How? Like, what? I'm confused. But yes, I was indeed pregnant with identical twins. And all I could think was, I hope they are girls. I know girls. I can't have boys. I don't know how to do boys.

And then they were boys. And my husband named them Bo and Luke. And I fell in love. Hard. And I'm obsessed.  And I can't stop, won't stop with the love. Ever. Never ever. And here's why.
