It seems weird that in less than 24 hours, Knox & Sloane will be here! We are SO excited! Of course, this also includes anxious, scared and so on. Lots of emotions! I’m really not that anxious, at this very moment. Now, when I get to the hospital tomorrow, that may change.
Fourteen months ago, today, my first sweet little baby went to Heaven. I remember the anticipation of getting prepared to head to the hospital to have him on June 7th, 2010. We were prepared that his heart was broken, but we really had no idea what was in store for us. The biggest thing on my mind was wondering if he would breath on his own when he came out. I wondered if he couldn’t, if the medical staff would be able to help him to do so. Thank God, he did. He put up a tough fight and we are so thankful for our 12 days with him. I look back at Cohen’s delivery and memorial slideshows and it’s so surreal. Today, I also look at the post I did the night before he was born and think I can’t believe it’s been over a year and I can’t believe I’m about two have two more blessings….arrive at once. Thank you, God.
Now, Cohen is looking down on us as we pray for healthy deliveries and lives for his little brother and sister.
We are so grateful to have had such amazing support, thoughts & prayers for all of our babies. The past year in and a half has been quite a …. I can’t even think of a word to tell you the truth. It’s been quite bittersweet. My brain can’t think straight enough right now. We appreciate you all and will continue to!
My c-section is scheduled for noon tomorrow. There will be some family and friends at the hospital awaiting Knox and Sloane’s arrival. I put BlogPress on my phone so I will see if one of my friends can upload a picture or I will once I’m in a postpartum room 🙂 I don’t want to leave all the non-tweeters out, so we will blog one, but we will also post some on Twitter, too.
Here are a few pics from today. No bare belly since I had on a dress. I actually meant to take one before I laid down a bit ago, but didn’t. Now, I don’t feel like getting up. I’ll take one last one in the morning. I think people use to think my growing belly looked bigger in pictures. Now, they tell me in looks much bigger in person. So, needless to say, I don’t think these pictures do it justice either, haha,
not to mention I feel like it goes down to mid thigh.
This picture kind of makes me giggle. It seems like we are in between not being ready for the picture and just looking scared, haha.
This pregnancy has been quite a journey! I’m going to update the twins prego mego page up top. If you’ve emailed regarding this pregnancy, and haven’t heard back, you might can find the answer there 🙂 I did just realize I had the wrong link in the “becoming pregnant” spot. Sorry.
If you have emailed me about anything, and I haven’t responded, I apologize. My inbox is so full right now. I had great intentions of replying to all before tomorrow, but that didn’t happen. It will, though! I just can’t say when.
Again, thank you all for your kindness towards our family 🙂
Dear Knox & Sloane,
I think back to one of the first pictures we got of you guys.
We were amazed. There were two of you and you were both inside me. I’ve treasured every second of this pregnancy, no matter how hard it has been. I’ve prayed like crazy for healthy hearts and healthy bodies. We’ve imagine our lives with you guys and we so excited.
We are so thankful and blessed to have you both now and forever. We cannot wait to see and meet you both 🙂
Mommy & Daddy
**Luckily, the twins will be a bit safer in our car as we now have OnStar FMV thanks to BlogHer & OnStar! 🙂 Check out our review here.
