Time to come out of hiding

I know it's been forever since I've posted. Life has just gotten away from me and honestly at some point I got so far behind, I just didn't have the energy to catch up. So with that being said, I'm not catching up. You'll just have to imagine the great summer we had, Laynie turning 2, Reed graduating, and all the other fun moments in between.
But just so this post is about something other than my lack of posting... here's our most recent news.



So yeah... sometime in May we will be expecting not one baby but two... we're delighted, excited, anxious, and terrified all at once. That's normal right?
We won't find out until after Christmas what the genders are but Nate is already pushing for two boys. I told him to just be grateful if we get one- like he originally prayed for. But he quickly amends his thoughts and says, "But I'll still love them even if their both girls." Phew.

Anyways, here's to hoping I post again before the twins are born. But don't hold your breath. :)

Oh Meagn! Congratulation! I'm so happy for you. I always wanted twins when I was young but the reality of it hit when I was a mother and I think I would lose it. You must be an amazing mom to be able to handle two at once!!! Good luck and keep us posted on the gender!!!
