So I Had Some Babies

Print Friendly

It was January 6th, the coldest day ever. Ever in the history of the world and ever loving everness.

wn1

I was 37 weeks and one day pregnant with a boy and a girl (ninja?) inside my cranktankerous belly. I was swollen. I was crampy. I was contractiony. I was anti-bacterial-y. I had makeup on! But no nail polish. I was excited. I was terrified. I was freaking hungry.

wn2

IV – done.

Into the operating room we go.

Time for the epidural – oh gawd, ew. But okay. It was so weird, it was FREEZING in the OR. And then just like that, my legs became super heavy and hot and I was being maneuvered onto my back, curtain up, 14 trillion doctors and nurses crowded around, Aaron scrubbed up and at my head, and bing bam boodily do, 12:19 pm little William Everett popped (er, was yanked) out. And then at 12:21 pm little miss Natalie James popped out.

Do you want to see them?

wn4

Of course as soon as it was done I was all, “Who’s gonna run out and tell our parents LIKE IN THE MOVIES?”

So Aaron ran out. But only for 1 minute and 34 seconds or else I would have lopped his head off with my gimpy log legs.

(Quick thing – did you know that your brain remembers the last position your body was in before it goes numb? I thought my legs were bent and sticking up the entire time! I was wrong. The end.)

Just look at his smile. Oh, my heart.

(During this time they were playing with my organs! Doesn’t that sound like such fun? The end again.)

wn12

You just want to see the babies, don’t you?

But first, here are the parents seeing some quick photos of the babi – OKAY! okay.

wn13

Feetsies!

wn5

Toesies!

I don’t know who is who in these photos. I suck. Don’t tell the babies.

wn6

And there they are. Natalie’s on the left and Will’s on the right. They look pretty big in this photo, but in real life they’re TINY. I should have stuck a coin or a turtle in the crib for comparison. She was 5 lbs and 13 oz. And Will was 5 lbs and 9 oz. Then they dropped a bunch of weight and ish got a little scary, but all is well!

wn7

Here’s Will, getting his post-birth bath. Clearly he enjoyed every second!

wn8

And here’s Natalie getting her suds on. Probably her favorite moment in life thus far. Probably.

wn9

A couple of hours of recovery later and we were moved to a super huge and posh room where we’d spend the next four days getting used to the fact that we’ve just made the world a slightly scarier place.

Also, after a c-section, I seriously looked like SpongeBev Squarepants. It was definitely a great look for me.

wn10

Dude, we’re parents. This is bad. Really, really bad.

wn11

Friday morning we packed up and headed back to the hizzy!

That really needs to be the last time I ever, ever say hizzy.

wn14

Home. At last. With these two.

I want to eat her hands.

wn15

And her nose.

wn16

And her eyes and lips.

wn17

And his hair.

wn18

And his fingers.

wn19

And his perfect, ovary-licious wrinkled forehead.

wn20

Will, “Okay, so this is the plan. Tonight, just when they think they’re going to sleep, you scream as loud as you possibly can from 10:30 pm to 2:30 am. Then I’ll take over from 2:30 through the rest of the night. Trust me, this will be GREAT.”

Nat, “Yeah yeah, man. I can dig it.”

wn21

Will, “And one more thing. If you could poop all over dad’s hands and chest right around 1:30 am, he’ll LOVE it. This is gonna be so good.”

Nat, “Yep, can do.”

wn22

Babies.

Did you guys know that babies poop and pee? Like all day? On a lot of things? Like your hands and clothing? And without warning! I mean, how rude is that? You don’t see me walking up to them and taking a big doo on their legs, now do you? No.

wn23

Schemesters. I see right through it.

wn28

Did you guys know that babies cry a lot? They do. They cry a lot. And it’s very, very loud. And feels like your brain is going to slide out of your ear holes and onto the floor.

Now I truly know why wine was invented.

wn29

Did you guys know that babies don’t know anything? At all. We have to teach them everything. Every single thing ever.

I’m actually quite terrified for them.

wn30

Yes, mommy needs to wash her hair. But you’re not supposed to really see much of anything right now, so let’s just ignore it, cool?

wn24

Here I am pretending that I even know how to hold an infant.

wn25

Like, I’m looking at these photos and I miss them. And they’re right next to me. This is completely ridiculous.

So, Will is definitely the chill one. The thinker. The sleeper. And Natalie? Oh Lord is she a pistol.

I have, um, no idea where she gets it.

wn27

All I know is that I survived IVF, nearly nine months of carrying twins, a needle in my spine (barf), a c-section, learning how to pee again, looking like a swollen blob of square squishy human tofu, and now the fresh beginnings of a new life with you two.

Hold on tight, littles.

I swear I’ll brush my teeth next time I kiss you. Maybe.

wn26

Also, they completely rule the universe.

*For an obnoxious amount of babyness, you can always peep my Instagram. Just don’t tell your husbands.

(All photos taken by my fabulous sister, Barbara. So yeah, don’t expect my future posts to be this pretty.)

    Wow! What a lovely story. Great pictures. What a sense of humour you have. I love it! You’re so blessed, that’s for sure. Treasure your treasures. Hugs to your hubby too. I’m sure he’s doing as much as you are. Well, almost. ;)

  5. Nancy P.@thebittersideofsweet January 22, 2014 at 1:02 pm #

    I have been loving every single picture and post! They are the most gorgeous beautiful babies, well not above mine of course! :) I am a twin and love to see twins! Makes me kind of know how it was when we were little!

    Bev ~ seriously, your babies . . . i just can’t take it . . . it’s a good thing i don’t live close or i’d probably move in . . . and i’m not necessarily a baby person . . . but these two . . . i want to be their auntie . . . sigh . . .

  9. Shaina January 22, 2014 at 1:05 pm #

    They’re so sweet, Bev. Many congratulations to you two. xoxo

  10. Michelle January 22, 2014 at 1:06 pm #

    “Here I am pretending that I even know how to hold an infant.” is the best thing ever. I am itching to come visit and pretend to know how to hold them! So happy for you two! Love the photos of proud Aaron too.

  11. Connie January 22, 2014 at 1:07 pm #

    Congratulations on your new additions! They are just precious.

    Oh man I’m a teary mess now! I am so happy for you guys. Will and Natalie are perfect (obviously). And that picture of your husband? That smile? Says it all.

    xo

    Just the sweetest little ones. Congratulations!!!

  14. Lauren O'Connor January 22, 2014 at 1:11 pm #

    Congrats!! Twins are a true joy. Got a pair myself. Now my girls are 5! Enjoy the wonderful moments of motherhood and raising twins. : )

  15. Michelle January 22, 2014 at 1:14 pm #

    A fantastically, fun read! Love to see the joy! All the best to you and your beautiful family.

  16. Jodie January 22, 2014 at 1:15 pm #

    So beautiful. Reading your story has been so incredibly touching. I suffered a miscarriage late last year after many months of struggling with infertility. seeing your pictures and posts is one of the few things helping me to stay positive and gear up to try again. all the best to your beautiful family!

  17. Brian @ A Thought For Food January 22, 2014 at 1:17 pm #

    Beyond precious. Congrats!!!

  18. Liz January 22, 2014 at 1:17 pm #

    Mazal tov! They’re gorgeous.

  19. Andrea January 22, 2014 at 1:19 pm #

    Such a sweet introduction to you babes!! Great job mamma!

  20. Courtney @ Neighborfood January 22, 2014 at 1:21 pm #

    There is a dangerous amount of adorable baby action in this post. Natalie and Will are b-e-a-utiful and so are you. Also, loooove their names. Solid. (And that’s not just because I happen to be married to a pretty great guy named Will).

  21. Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche January 22, 2014 at 1:22 pm #

    Oh my god Bev, you make amazing babies. They are GORGEOUS. Those enormous dark eyes… swoon! Massive massive congratulation to you both!

  22. natalie@thesweetslife January 22, 2014 at 1:27 pm #

    Cried my way through this post…hello 36 weeks pregnant emotions! Congrats (and great girl name ;))

  23. Heather || Heather's Dish January 22, 2014 at 1:27 pm #

    Can’t.
    Stop.
    Crying.

    I love them and I love you and I need more babies STAT!

    Really though, sweet Bev, I can’t tell you the joy that I feel whenever I think about you guys as parents. Going down that hard road couldn’t have been fun at all, but these sweet babies are just the most. What a blessing!

  24. Estela @ Weekly Bite January 22, 2014 at 1:28 pm #

    They are the most precious babies!!! And look at the hair on them! So adorable. Babies are the best! Many congrats to you and your new family of four :)

  25. Erin @ Dinners, Dishes and Desserts January 22, 2014 at 1:28 pm #

    Congratulations!! They are absolutely perfect! The smile on your husband’s face is priceless, so much joy!

  26. Cookbook Queen January 22, 2014 at 1:29 pm #

    It’s probably completely ridiculous that I’m crying right now. But good grief what darlings. And I’m just so happy for you, I could explode. Babies are so hard and so exhausting and so scary and such a GIFT. Every age is like a present. Lucy took her first step this morning (she’s 14 months…we move quickly around here, as you can see) and I thought I was going to die from screaming my head off. She was giggling, I was jumping and screaming like a maniac, then we went and ate a cookie for breakfast like no bigs, babies don’t need nutrition.

    See? That’s a year away. So fast!! So many great things. Can’t wait to see what you all get up to :)

  27. Gina January 22, 2014 at 1:32 pm #

    Congrats Bev and Aaron!! You made the most perfect babies ever! They’re beautiful. I think I never commented on the blog before but I discovered you almost a year ago and I was so thrilled to finally met Will and Natalie through Instagram! :) I can’t get enough of baby photos and I’m starting to get worried. I really enjoy your foodie photos even though they make me feel crazy hungry… But, lady, your baby photos are making my ovaries sing and I’m not even 22 yet. For God’s sake, STOP IT!

  28. Emily @ Life on Food January 22, 2014 at 1:32 pm #

    Oh my goodness they are beautiful. Congratulations!

  29. Kim January 22, 2014 at 1:32 pm #

    They are absolutely beautiful! Congratulations to you both!!

  30. Kathryn January 22, 2014 at 1:40 pm #

    Congrats to all four of you! They’re just the most adorable tiny little people ever. You are all going to have so much fun together xo

  31. cassie January 22, 2014 at 1:44 pm #

    Oh my goodness, I am laughing hysterically through my tears. This is beautiful, as are you and THEM. Holy beautiful babies. I’m so extremely happy for you all! xoxo

  32. Melissa @ Treats With a Twist January 22, 2014 at 1:46 pm #

    I love love love this!! First of all, your sister is amazing! And you are too so don’t pretend like you aren’t going to take the most stunning photos of those two. And Oh My God they’re so cute and you’re SO funny about it all. Sweet sweet wine :)

  33. Sandy @ Reluctant Entertainer January 22, 2014 at 1:48 pm #

    I love this, Bev. And love YOU! (oh, and the babies).

  34. Julie January 22, 2014 at 1:50 pm #

    Beautiful post, beautiful family!! Thanks for sharing all the cuteness everyday.

  35. Sharon January 22, 2014 at 1:53 pm #

    Love love love this. Thank you for sharing and congratulations! With my teenagers on the way out the door all I can do is look back and envy you all the adventures to come.

  36. Dixya @ Food, Pleasure, and Health January 22, 2014 at 1:53 pm #

    this is so beautiful Bev. Thank you so much for sharing such precious pictures and moments with us. I still remember your pregnancy post and now the babies are here – seriously time flies by so fast. Sending love and hugs :)

  37. Kiran @ KiranTarun.com January 22, 2014 at 1:54 pm #

    Oh my gosh!! Simply adorable!! Congrats Bev, this post brought out so much joy. xoxo

  38. Abby of Baby Birds Farm January 22, 2014 at 1:56 pm #

    Congratulations!!!! They are absolutely beautiful!! Both of mine lost a lot of weight, too. It was the worst time ever with the first. (I was prepared the second go round.) Well, you go mama with your gorgeous twins!!!

  39. Erin L January 22, 2014 at 2:05 pm #

    Oh my gosh, Congratulations, Miss!!! The babies are absolutely scrumptious!! The photo of you in the hospital bed with the babies made me weep right into my Chai. Partly because I’m so overjoyed for you & partly because I’m due in 4 weeks– just seeing you on the other side gives me courage!!

  40. Cathy Pollak ~ Noble Pig January 22, 2014 at 2:05 pm #

    Congrats a million times over. Best, most beautiful post ever!

  41. Rachel January 22, 2014 at 2:06 pm #

    Aww, great post! Love all the pics – thanks so much for sharing! Do you live in Seattle/WA? I was thinking you did and was wondering what clinic you used for IVF, as I am researching them now in Seattle.

  42. Corinne January 22, 2014 at 2:06 pm #

    what beautiful pictures you have to remember those wonderful moments by!

  43. Nic G January 22, 2014 at 2:10 pm #

    I just discovered your blog at the perfect time. Your post was beautiful as are your babies. I’m due with twin girls this May, so I am happy to see it (the birth and first few weeks) can be done with grace and humor.

  44. Rachel H January 22, 2014 at 2:12 pm #

    Congratulations! I’m going to start using Instagram now so I can look at those beautiful littles. Don’t tell my husband.

  45. thenik January 22, 2014 at 2:12 pm #

    So first time commenting, been reading since around the time you got pregs: but like, you had babies! Plural! Gorgeously. I had to respond. Thanks for sharing your story, and simply stunning photographs. I for sure didn’t look that way in or around birthing ONE child. You’re a force, clearly. Best of everything, you four! xo

  46. tammy b January 22, 2014 at 2:13 pm #

    mazel tov! my double trouble is (are?) 10 now and i loved, loved looking at your pictures and remembering back……it will get easier; and then it will get hard again, but enjoy it!

  47. Jenny Hatch January 22, 2014 at 2:16 pm #

    Wow! Those twins are darling…A hearty congrats and Happy Baby Moon!

    ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

    Lord have mercy I’m in love. You have the sweetest little ones. Congratuations! Also props on not giving them trendy names like Elderflower and Mace. Kids need regular names.

  49. Katie @ Blonde Ambition January 22, 2014 at 2:27 pm #

    These are seriously breathtaking photos! Your sister has a gift.

    Congratulations and good luck!! Sounds like they have it in for you ;)

    I learned so much about babies in this post! :) Congrats! Love you, lady! YOU DID IT. xoxo

  51. Stephanie @ Eat. Drink. Love. January 22, 2014 at 2:34 pm #

    Oh my sweet Lord, I am DYING over here. They couldn’t be more perfect, poop and all! With Will’s wrinkles and fuzzy hair, he is like 90 years old and I love it.

  52. Katie January 22, 2014 at 2:46 pm #

    Gaaaah. I am dead. Not only am I the most uncomfortable person on the planet at nearly 41 weeks pregnant, but my hormones punching me and making me sob to hold (and smell?) an infant. I can’t take it. They are perfectly, perfectly precious and I could not (COULDNOT) be more happy for you.

  53. Elisabeth January 22, 2014 at 2:47 pm #

    Bev, I wholeheartedly congratulate you, these babies are wonderful and beautiful, and I’m having a big baby fever episode right this minute! Thank you so much for sharing!!!

    Just one tinytiny piece of mom wisdom from me: These two already know everything. You don’t have to “teach” them. It’s just as hard, but the most important task is creating an environment for them to be able to develop what they already know.

    Gah, this sounds crazy and flakey – but it’s true!

    You’ll be a great mom, just try to listen to the two of them and your and your husbands gut. Nothing else matters.

    P.S. My son is already a toddler, but I still have that feeling sometimes – missing him although he’s right there!

  54. Bri January 22, 2014 at 2:54 pm #

    Bev! This post is so awesome. Natalie and Will are so lucky and about raising them and teaching them everything, we all know you’ll be just perfect. I hope they have your sense of humor. :)

  55. Tara @ Chip Chip Hooray January 22, 2014 at 2:55 pm #

    Congratulations!!! Also, my ovaries are exploding, ohmygah.

  56. Courtney E. January 22, 2014 at 2:55 pm #

    This is was the best baby post ever. I don’t even want kids, but this was just the perfect baby post. Hilarious and sweet and BEAUTIFUL pictures. Congrats Bev!

  57. Amy @Very Culinary January 22, 2014 at 2:57 pm #

    We’ve all been waiting for this post. Thank goodness for Instagram and FB! Those pictures make my ovaries hurt. Dude…you’re parents. And it’s AWE.SOME. xoxoxo

  58. Elizabeth January 22, 2014 at 2:57 pm #

    Aw Bev! I wish I was closer so I could come and hold TWO babies at one time! That’s CRAZY! But I know what it’s like to be at home alone with a baby, and the crying, and the no sleep. So I FEEL for you, I really do. I don’t even know what I would do if I had two, I mean…who’s making your COFFEE???

    I know they will be amazing. Soak it in…I know EVERYONE who has ever had babies will say that but it really does go sooooo fast. I miss the smell of those tiny little feet! Mine spend all day begging for food and hitting each other with foam swords.

    Having one of each is THE BEST!

  59. autumn January 22, 2014 at 3:06 pm #

    Be still my womb …be still !

  65. Dana January 22, 2014 at 3:38 pm #

    I have obviously been creeping on your instagram pics for the little humans but I am SO excited for this post. Also, that picture of the kiss in the car? Stop it. This is why I have unrealistic expectations of the perfect relationship I will one day have.

  66. Kasey January 22, 2014 at 3:42 pm #

    Congratulations!!! I didn’t know anything about anything, but hey, you figure it out! We just passed the 1 year mark. It goes fast :)

  67. Lauren January 22, 2014 at 3:50 pm #

    Bev, I seriously can’t handle their cuteness. I love all the pictures on Instagram and love this post even more. They are just perfect, and I know worth the wait! Congrats to you and your family of five (can’t forget miss Charlie).

  68. sarah January 22, 2014 at 3:53 pm #

    I have never commented before but I always love your pins on Pinterest and love following you, so when I saw these adorable baby pictures I wanted to let you know that I am so happy for you and your husband. You are so adorable and made me laugh a lot during this post! You have such a beautiful family. Congrats from NC!

  70. Julia January 22, 2014 at 4:06 pm #

    I just pee’d laughing at their ‘conversation’ about pee’ing on their dad. I maybe pee’d because I never did those damn keels during either pregnancy. Either way. I have pee on my leg and tears in my eyes. Wanna come hang out, I’ma hoot ;) So so happy for you, and for them, and for all of you. What a HUGE blessing!!!!!

  71. Danica January 22, 2014 at 4:11 pm #

    SUPER AWESOME. Congrats!

  72. Barbara @ Barbara Bakes January 22, 2014 at 4:36 pm #

    Congratulations! They’re beautiful. I have IVF twin boys who are almost 18 now. I finally had to write names on pictures because even though they aren’t identical sometimes in pictures I couldn’t tell them apart when they were little.

  73. Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen January 22, 2014 at 4:51 pm #

    And my heart just melted… congratulations on your beautiful little family.

  74. Christy January 22, 2014 at 4:52 pm #

    Well, so, I’m crying and it’s pretty ugly.
    So many congratulations on your perfect wee babes! And good luck with the festive poo-flinging.

    They are so very beautiful. And tiny! My ovaries better be spitting out eggs right and left (just kidding, one is fine!!) soon because I’m ready for another baby, darnit!

    I am in tears over here, Bev! HAPPY tears! What a beautiful post about a beautiful new family. Much love and well wishes to you all!

  83. Lindsay @ The Live-In Kitchen January 22, 2014 at 6:32 pm #

    They are adorable! And you look great. Way to go doubling up, just get all that crazy newborn-ness out of the way! I promise you’ll sleep again soon.

  84. Melanie January 22, 2014 at 6:51 pm #

    Congrats, Bev – you make beautiful babies. :)

  85. Aimee @ Simple Bites January 22, 2014 at 6:52 pm #

    *crying*

    As much as I hate this saying >> I really can’t stand the cuteness!!

    Thank you for this SWEET post. You captured so many first-time mum emotions. You look positively radiant and they are the cutest babies after my own.

    PLEASE keep the IG’s coming for ladies like me who have birthed our last babies (yes, we’re done) yet crave a glimpse into those precious newborn days.

    Much love to you!

  86. Olivia @ Liv Lives Life January 22, 2014 at 6:57 pm #

    This is such a sweet post! I love your sense of humor…and the babies? They are just beautiful. I can’t wait to “see” how they grow! :)

    SO happy for you, Bev. They are so beautiful. Congrats!

  92. Amber | Bluebonnets & Brownies January 22, 2014 at 8:30 pm #

    Bev, we share a lot of blogger friends, but we’ve never really met – and it felt weird to sort of introduce myself in the midst of our two pregnancies just because we were both pregnant and both went through the hell (and heaven, when it works out) that is IVF. But I just wanted to say that I am so so so very happy for you guys. As a fellow infertility sufferer, I know the highs you’re on right now – that kind of make the lows not so bad, y’know?

    Anyway, congratulations again. Your babies are beautiful, and so are you.

    – Amber

    Bev!! Will and Natalie are perfect. Like in every single way {but of course you know that!}… I’m so thrilled for you two! Love you to pieces!

    XO

    Congratulations! Your babies are precious. I enjoyed how funny this post is and every word you wrote. Welcome to parenthood. Enjoy the ride.

  95. Averie @ Averie Cooks January 22, 2014 at 10:48 pm #

    Thanks for sharing these amazing photos and your journey, Bev! I was hoping for a post like this, but with TWO newborns, I didnt know if you’d have any time! Wow, you’re superwoman! Congrats!!!! They are beautiful :) xoxo

  96. Chris January 23, 2014 at 12:00 am #

    Double the blessings! Congratulations, Bev! Your babies are just adorable. Having been down a similar path (IVF resulting in triplets), I can relate to what you are experiencing :) It does get easier and easier! Keep with the feeding/sleeping schedule – that’s the key to keeping your sanity. It was for me at least. Well, that and wine.

  97. Sarah January 23, 2014 at 12:44 am #

    Congratulations!!!! They’re so beautiful! Glad all is happy back at the hizzy, cough, I mean house.

  98. Kuntala January 23, 2014 at 1:49 am #

    Congratulations Bev! Your babies are beautiful.

  99. Sini | my blue&white kitchen January 23, 2014 at 3:43 am #

    You two look like the happiest persons in the whole wide world. Love the look on your faces. Man, those sparkling eyes! Will and Natalie are adorable. Thank you so much for sharing these very special and intimate moments with us.

    xo, Sini

  100. Natalie @ Cooking for My Kids January 23, 2014 at 5:56 am #

    I love them. LOVE them. I will pretend that you named Natalie after me…because that makes me smile. The fact that she is a pistol makes me think that she will take after my sweet Summer. Pistol now. Ball of energy always. Full of sunshine and rainbows and a zest for life forever. Have fun, Bev! You have just entered the very best journey of all.

  101. DessertForTwo January 23, 2014 at 6:52 am #

    Ok, I’m over here crying. This is so freaking adorable. Bev, you and Aaron deserve all the happiness in the world, and I’m so glad they are here! You’re going to be an awesome mama!

    I secretly love that Natalie is a pistol like you :)

  102. Joanna January 23, 2014 at 7:14 am #

    Love this! Congrats to your sweet little family of FOUR! Beautiful photos, beautiful babies, beautiful mama!

  103. USA Kiwi (Kylee) January 23, 2014 at 8:20 am #

    You did AWESOME!
    Congratulations to you!

  104. Sheila January 23, 2014 at 8:37 am #

    Bev, this is awesome. Made me miss my babies. Now I’m just cleaning pee off the toilet seat from my 6’5″ son instead of my face. Love the pic of your parents looking at the phone, best pic ever. Parenting is scary, I’m not gonna lie. But it’s fun too. Funner than scary. A sense of humor helps…and wine. And if it matters…I have 2 girls and 2 boys. Girls are pains, usually, mostly, all the time. Boys are easy, usually, mostly all the time. I love them all the same, usually, mostly, all the time. Amen. XO Sheila

  108. Stephanie Hanson January 23, 2014 at 10:13 am #

    Congratulations! They are completely adorable! I hope soon you have some sleep…but my guess is that won”t happen for a while ;-) But I also can assume it’s TOTALLY worth it!

  109. Julie January 23, 2014 at 10:25 am #

    CONGRATULATIONS! They are just precious! Enjoy every minute of it (even the screaming and scheming).

  110. Susan Denney January 23, 2014 at 10:32 am #

  114. Wenderly January 23, 2014 at 12:33 pm #

    Precious beyond words. I won’t even try to begin to sum up the preciousness.

    Love & hugs to you all!!

  115. Sandy January 23, 2014 at 2:27 pm #

    Your babies are so cute. They seem big to me, but my twin grandsons were 1.12 and 1.6 when they were born. Now two years later they weigh 24 pounds. Enjoy your time with them while you can. Blessings to your bigger family.

  116. Heather @ Curly Girl Kitchen January 23, 2014 at 2:32 pm #

    Such beautiful photos! I loved reading your story.

  117. Julie January 23, 2014 at 3:53 pm #

  118. Chels R. January 23, 2014 at 5:48 pm #

    These babies are two (get it, two?) adorable and you are super funny! Congrats! Very happy for you!

  119. Donna @ The Slow Roasted Italian January 23, 2014 at 7:06 pm #

    Congrats! If it wasn’t bad enough that I want a second baby (I must have forgotten all about that first year), now you have me wanting 2.

    Oh sweet toesies and nosies! <3

  120. stephanie January 23, 2014 at 7:37 pm #

    So preshhh! Makes me a.l.m.o.s.t. want to do triplets again!! Love your pics! Especially the one of u kissing in the car before! That tells ohhh so much! Popped over from my sweet cousin’s post….Sandy @ RE

  122. Nicki January 23, 2014 at 8:52 pm #

    BABIES!!!! Two beautiful ones! Congratulations so, so much. As a single girl who cannot wait to be a mother, I love reading about the experience. Also, as a close friend of mine recently had a baby boy 5 weeks early via c-section thanks to the miracle of IUI and fertility medicine, I feel like I’ve learned so much about this process and since you got pregnant a similar way – YAY!

  123. Nancy @ Coupon Clipping Cook January 24, 2014 at 1:15 am #

    Congratulations times two. Such wonderful pictures of your little cuties and your whole family…and loved the story of it all two! I mean too!

  124. Brie @ Entrée the Giant January 24, 2014 at 8:10 am #

    All I can say is if those kids have half your sense of humor, they’ll be juuuust fine. Congratulations – mommyhood looks good on you :)

  125. Ky G January 24, 2014 at 9:58 am #

    After all you’ve been through to have those precious 2…..sending all the congrats, hugs, well wishes and love your way! Absolutely adorable!!!!! Enjoy every moment and stay in the moment. It flies by quick xoxo

  126. Terry Covington January 24, 2014 at 9:31 pm #

    Congratulations to both of you! This brought back so many memories. Not that I had twins, but I had three little girls — have, but they are now in their 20s. My middle daughter was teensy, 6 pounds, 1 ounce, like a scrawny little chick, but is now a beautiful 26-year-old marketing executive. Wishing you all the joy there is, on the journey!

  127. LisaG January 25, 2014 at 9:53 am #

    Sweet little bambinos! Adorable.
    Hope to see many more pics. Love your sense of humor!!

  128. Paula – bell’alimento January 25, 2014 at 2:26 pm #

    Aw Bev, they are so very precious! Welcome to the roller coaster ride of parenthood! You are going to love it!

    32 Baby #1 is still editing my blog comments and making huge poos that make me gag even without morning sickness. *back to Bev*
    Totally with you on feeling like a big block of tofu.

    I’m kind of in love with these two, And their feet. And their eyes. Swoon.
    ….and my husband wonders why I want twins?! Duh

  142. Tracey @ Cooking with Love January 30, 2014 at 7:52 pm #

  147. Kate Johns February 9, 2014 at 2:14 pm #

    Reading this brought back all the memories from when my special babies were born. They are 11 now and for a moment’s time, I could smell them, feel them and remember how they felt in my arms at that age. They weighed almost the same as yours. I also have a Natalie. (The other one is Kearstyn) Thank you so much for that blast backwards if only for a fleeting moment. Time truely travels so fast. Cherish every minute with your angels. Before too long you will be running around with sports and dance and all the other things that come with them growing. You, me and many others belong to a very exclusive club where the members are handpicked by God. Take care and God bless you and your beautiful family♥

  148. L February 24, 2014 at 3:12 am #

    Your babies are adorable! Good health, peace, happiness and all the best to you all specially the tiny angels.
