It’s okay, I didn’t believe it either. I’m not sure I believe it now! We’ve been praying for a new little spirit to join our family for a long time now. I had a heartbreaking miscarriage back in June and I think when we got pregnant again and that little baby realized what was happening, he/she with all the attitude a spirit could muster was like, “no way – I’m going too”! At least that’s what I like to believe. So not one, but two new Smith babies will join our family this Spring.
The kids are so excited and they love telling people “My mom has TWO babies in her belly”! They tell everyone from the cashier at Walmart to the lady who works the register at Wendy’s. I’m so grateful they’re best friends. Boston is the sweetest brother to his baby Sav. He’s adored her from the moment she came home from the hospital and has never been jealous of the attention we give her. They’re fiercely loyal to one another and I’m grateful that they’ll have each other when the twins (so weird to say that) are babies and I’m a walking zombie.
This right here ^^ is what our love story looks like. He’s the reason why I know everything will be okay. He’s the reason why our family is put together and why we’re all so happy. He sacrifices everyday to make us better, to give us more and I couldn’t live without him. It’s been pretty much impossible to wrap my brain around having two babies at once. I’m honestly not sure how people survive it. I’m absolutely terrified of being out here in Ohio nearly 2,000 miles away from my family and almost 9,000 miles away from my mom. I can’t even think about it. But I do know that we’ll survive it. Just like we survived being super poor college students, just like we survived two kids, grad school, a huge move and all the other little experiences and trials in between. God is good. It’s taken me some time to be more excited than scared about what’s about to happen to our family but man, are we excited! Having two little babies to laugh with, to play with, to get up with and to love is going to be amazing. There was an overwhelming response to the announcement on instagram this past weekend and I’m so grateful to have you guys in my life. I hope you are just as excited as I am to start this crazy journey!
