Receive, dearest Mother, our offerings and listen attentively to our supplications. Amen.

I can't believe it, but there they were on the sonogram this morning. Two babies. Two beautiful little heartbeats.

I can't stop smiling.

Woo hoo! Congratulations! I'm a little envious, I've always wanted twins! Maybe someday?

Looking forward to August with you...

Giggling with glee is exactly what I have been doing all day. I must sound like a babbling idiot but I can't help it.

Thanks so much for the warmth and joy you've all expressed. I will print out this thread and someday be able to show my little ones just how much love surrounded them from the moment we knew they were coming.

What exciting, wonderful news!

As I started read the responses on my way down to post, it struck me (not for the first time, but in a new way) what an AWESOME group this is. I can imagine other people might say things not so positive and here we all are bursting at the seams with excitement, joy, and yes, some jealousy .

Anyway, congratulations!!!!!
