    • My dad is a twin. Primrose has been absolutely certain this whole pregnancy that we are having twins, so she is positively gloating. ;)

      I am excited and stunned and thrilled and terrified. :P

    • “Excited, stunned, thrilled, terrified”– that’s about how I felt when we found out we were having twins! But I can’t imagine a better mama for the job!:) God bless you, Sarah! You will enjoy this ride!

  7. I love it!! How exciting!

  8. I just gasped with excitement! Oh my heavens! What a busy, blessed mama you are!

  17. Girlfriend!!! You just doubled your family size in less than 2 years! Whoo hoo!

  18. Excited, stunned, thrilled & terrified about sums up how *I* would feel! And yet, I always said I wanted twins. You get double the blessings and only one long pregnancy!

    Again congrats. Will be praying for ALL of you! Hehe

  22. OH MY GOODNESS!!!! Wow!! Charlotte just called to tell me the news, and I clicked right over! (I’ve been bad about reading blogs lately.) I can’t believe it!! My mom had twins (they are 20 now) and it is so much fun, but so much work the first couple years. I’ll be praying extra for you!! Congratulations! :)

  23. I am so so excited and happy for you! What a way to start out the new year!

  29. Congratulations! My 3rd and 4th are twins (they are 2 1/2 now). It is a wild ride! If you haven’t heard of it, Barbara Luke’s book about pregnancy with multiples is a great resource.

  31. Congratulations! Twins is such an incredible blessing.

  32. Congratulations! Our third and fourth are twin boys aged 4 but our oldest was only 3 1/2 when they were born. I’m sure you’ll have many eager hands wanting to help out. Twins are exciting, crazy, scary, and awesome! Prayers coming your way. :)

  34. No way!!!!!! That is totally awesome!!! Woo hoo!!!

  35. I had a funny feeling you were carrying two! As a mum of twins who are now 26 it is a fun ride!

  58. Congratulations!!!!!!! I remember being absolutely stunned and terrified and thrilled as well. Twins are a wonderful blessing, mine are about to turn 3 :) Congrats again!!!!

  59. God Bless! That is exciting news! If you happen to wonder from time to time, “How am I going to do it all,” rest assured. First of all remember that no one “does it all” and secondly take heart in the fact that, with God’s grace, you will do all that needs to be done! God sure answers prayers in abundance, doesn’t He? You are going to continue to be a GREAT mom! Nothing can change that fact! I know you are thrilled to have more opportunities to share your love! How blessed you all are!

  60. Wonderful, wonderful news!!! God is showering you with his blessings!!! I will keep you and your beautiful family in our prayers for a safe, nausea free pregnancy full of energy:) Well…as much energy as possible! :)

  61. That. Is. Awesome. :) twins run in my family too, and I always have big babies….so when I start carrying big we always go, “Maybe it’s twins this time! (nervous chuckle)” I think it would be so, so fun,,,and a little intimidating. I so look forward to living it vicariously through you though. You will do amazingly well , I’m sure!

I am so happy and a little terrified for you as well! ;-) You’ve been on my mind and in my prayers for days since I read this exciting news and I was just waiting for a minute to jump down on the big computer to type out a response. I am so glad that Posie will have playmates close in age. How wonderful is that?! God is so good! When I shared your happy news with my 10yo she exclaimed with a big smile on her face, “Oh, that’s so exciting! Oh, they are going to be so close – they are going to be the best of buddies!”

    I always thought I would love to have twins, so now I’ll get to live vicariously through you. :-) Just think of all the photographic opportunities waiting for you! ;-) I have been praying for you for extra strength and grace. You are going to rock this Mom of Many title! :-)
