  95. Shelley Hohe reply

    Even though I already commented on your Facebook post, I felt led by God to post again here on your blog. I am so happy for you and Michael!! Now being a mom to 16 year old boy/girl twins. I must share one piece of advice….take lots of pictures…..hehehe! Seriously though it really does go by fast! In each stage of life with having kids there was joy but there were also a challenges even with my difficult pregnancy. I always couldn’ wait for the next season….like wanting to get over 24hr a day morning sickness the entire pregnancy, nursing twins round the clock, dirty diapers, potty training, etc. One important thing I learned is how I wasted so much precious time thinking about how I wanted those seasons in life to go by quickly in which now I would do anything to get that time back!! Even the 24 hour a day morning sickness! I do remember how precious it was being able to carry them in me and feel them move… was the most exciting time in my life. So just enjoy every moment and season you are in…even the challenging ones, because before you know it they will be teenagers like ours! I know you will be great parents, you also have an amazing support system of loving family and friends to help you in time of need! Congratulations and Blessings to you both!!!!! So so happy for you!!!!!!!!

  96. Laura Lederman reply

    Oh wow congrats! I have no idea how I even found this exact post! I’m in a very similar boat as both of you. My husband and I are moving into a new home in just a few months and we also just found out we’re pregnant! We think we’re due sometime in April (we literally just found out). But congratulations you guys!! And your announcement was spectacular!

  97. Elizabeth reply
