Ten Days

*All the items sold from yesterday’s post, but I’ll be doing another soon! Still a few left from the first one left.

It seems like just the other day I was doing Knox & Sloane’s ten month post. Heck, it actually seems like just the other day they were ten days old.

I immediately knew to believe people when they said, enjoy it, it goes so fast. 

It does. It goes really fast and it really does make me sad. Most people say, oh, don’t worry because you will enjoy every stage.

I know I will enjoy every stage, but I’ve really loved this one, too. A year just seems so big.

I sit and think about our first year with them. That’s probably a whole different post in itself.

For the next ten days I’m going to be extra thankful for this past year. Ten days before I had Knox & Sloane, I just kept praying they would be okay and that I would bring them home. While I had a deep feeling they would be fine, it was still music to my ears when I heard they wouldn’t need to go to the NICU and we could all eave the hospital within a few days.

It’s so strange how during the past two weeks, everyone who I’ve told that I have twins has immediately asked, did you know you were having them? 

I’ve replied the same thing to each, yep! we knew from very early on we were having twins. 

Ten days after finding out we were pregnant, we knew our chances of bringing home twins were pretty great as we knew there were two sacs and hopefully two developing heartbeats.

I’ve been thinking how ironic it is that so many people have been asking if we knew. I guess maybe people are surprised by it more often than not. I will say that I’ve never heard of as many twins and twin pregnancies as I have this year. Anyways, part of me think the “did you know you were having twins” question has replaced “are they your only kids” and believe me when I say, I’m okay with that. It’s a much easier question to answer and while I’m totally immune to answering, it’s helping my heart focus on this first year celebration for Knox & Sloane.

Obviously not a day goes by where I don’t think about Cohen, but I knew ten days after we said goodbye to him that we wanted to have more children. We knew.

We know now that Knox and Sloane are here more than likely because of him.

So while we never had a chance to celebrate Cohen’s first birthday with him here, I think we will always think of him on his birthday and on the twins’ birthday.

It’s been a wonderful year and they have truly blessed our lives.

I cannot imagine ten days without them.

This post is kind of all over the place, but I sat down a bit ago and it dawned on me that ten days is soon! My babies aren’t so much babies anymore.

    I think we hear of more twin births for two reason. One we have twins now so we pay more attention to "TWIN" things and Two b/c there probably is an increase in Twin births due to fertility treatments. I love being a twin mom and would do it all again in a second. I did not get to bring my babies home right away as you know but at least we came home. Megan I love your blog and thank you for all your encouragment and support while we were going through fertility treatments. Love Casey

    Luke's first birthday is in 15 days! It does fly. He is my second son so it went even fast since I'm more busy with two kids now. I hope you have a good time at their party! I can't wait to see pictures and all of the wonderful details. We're having a Star Wars themed party because my husband is turning 30- so the party is for "Luke and his father" haha. And to save money I'm making all of the decorations. I'm making about 50 3D paper stars to hang to make our living room look like space. I must be crazy!

    Your post brings tears to my eyes! I remember like yesterday when you were pregnant with the twins, and I was reading your blog, and I was pregnant at the same time. I remember them being born and knowing that meant that my little man would be hear soon. He is 10.5 months old, and it's flying by. My husband and I have decided that this one will be our last, so it's so bittersweet for me. I won't have another set of first holidays or firsts during the first year. My breastfeeding journey is almost over for good. While I'm looking forward to having my body back after 3.5 years of being pregnant or breastfeeding, I'm aching to go back to it all over again. Enjoy! I love reading your blog and relating to your feelings.

    I can't believe Cohen has been gone over two years and Know and Sloane have been here almost a year. It has gone by SO fast.
    My twins will be 8 months old in a few days…I can't believe it. My daughter starts kindergarten in a week. I feel like I just blinked and it happened.
    Wishing you so much happiness with those two little ones!!! Can't wait to hear all about there big bash!

    It has been so sweet watching Knox and Sloane grow this year. They are too precious for words, and are very special little ones to be graced with such amazing parents and big brother. I can't help but think of how Cohen helped bring your babies to your arms. I pray everyday that our twin angels help bring their siblings to our arms, as well. Your blog inspires and encourages me always! Thank you for sharing your heart and I can't wait to see what the future hold for K&S! :)
