      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!

    That. Is. Awesome! You guys make pretty babies- it only makes sense the universe would be anxious to have you double up!

    Just clicked over here for the first time from your other blog and saw this news – congrats! I just had twins in November (and now have 4 kids under the age of 4 – it’s crazy over here!). It’s definitely scary and exciting and wonderful and you will do great! Prayers!

    I was here for the first time last night looking at some of your photography posts.

    Congratulations on twins! How wonderful. :)

  7. says

    That is SO exciting. I can’t even imagine how you feel, although I’ve often thought about how exciting and a bit frightening twins would be. :-) You’re a great mama AND you have great helpers, it will be awesome!

  8. says

    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!

    God has tremendous CONFIDENCE in you! And such amazing love.♥

  9. says

    Oh. My. Goodness. What a blessing! Congratulations!!!!!!!!! I have always wanted to name twins, cool things like Clare and Francis or John and Theresa. I’m a dork :)

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

    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! :)

  11. says

    I just startled my poor husband by yelling “No way!” a little too loud :)

    What thrilling news! And so lucky for you to have a troup of big helpers. Congratulations again!

  12. says

    Congratulations Sarah – how exciting! Praying for a vomit free first trimester. :) God makes babies so darn cute so we forget about all that morning or “day” sickness. So happy for you and the family!

  13. says

    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.

  14. says

    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. :)

  15. says

    I hardly ever comment on blogs – even though I read your every entry! – but I had to comment on this and say “squeal! oh my goodness! squeal! Congratulations.”

  16. says

    Wonderful!:-) :-) You will be really, really tired, but there are perks. Twins are each other’s best friends, and it’s really amazing to watch them grow up. And you will be able to take some really cool pictures! Congratulations!!! :-)

  17. says

    Just think how early you’ll be able to take your fabulous belly photographs! With your new tripod! On manual mode!
    Wonderful news. I’ll be praying.

  18. says

    Sarah!!! Oh my goodness! I can’t believe it! Do you know that we have twins? I see a couple other people here have twins too. If you ever want to talk, let me know. But we had twins first, so our situations are probably different. Prayers for you all! And a HUGE congratulations!!

  19. says

    Oh, doubly blessed you are! I can imagine your cheeks are tired from an ear-to-ear grin since you learned the news. Congratulations. You’ll not be bored or lonely!

  20. says

    I knew it. ;-). Seriously, I thought to myself that you were pregnant with twins…just like Primrose. You are going to have that huge pregnancy belly you always wanted. :-). Congratulations again and again.

  21. says

    Now, Don’t you even think about being too busy to blog!!!!! Love the amongst lovely things blog!
    And that’s the best post ever!

  22. says

    Oh wow that’s amazing ! God is so good I do confess I am jealous :) Enjoy. Both my brothers had twin daughters :) It’s a good journey enjoy

  23. says

    I read this last night and just can’t stop smiling every time I think about it! I’m so excited for you, and will be praying for you even more throughout this pregnancy. God bless you!!

  24. says

    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!!!!

  25. says

    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!

  26. says

    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! :)

  27. says

    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!

  28. says

    Sarah, When I read this while nursing our little one, I smiled peacefully; yet joyfully. Our God is not outdone in generosity! Congratulations and rest up!

  29. says

    Many, many congratulations, Sarah! I was so happy for you when I read you were expecting again, but now that the good news is doubled, I figured I’d better make my first official comment on your site! Thank you for your lovely blog, and congratulations, again!

  30. says

    Congratulations, Sarah, from one mom of twins to another! Many prayers for a healthy pregnancy! Take care of yourself! You are in the Lord’s hands, which is the best place to be!

  31. says

    Oh my goodness! Stunning news! Congrats and prayers to you :) Wonderful that you have big helpers who love babies :) God is so good!

  32. says

    Oh my! Deo Gratias! Glory be to Him who does infinitely more than we ask or imagine! (Eph 3:20) I’m so so very happy for all of you! And I love how you answered your own question from the last post ‘What could be better than the promise of a new baby, right?’ Twins! Congratulations!

  33. says

    Ohmygoodnessohmygoodnessohmgoodnessohmygoodnessohmygoodness!!!!!!!!! Oh. My. GOODNESS!!!

    Congratulations, Sarah! I will be praying for you and your babies! SO exciting! I hope you aren’t feeling too sick. God bless you and your beautiful family!

    congratulations! I am not sure if I have ever commented here, but I had to jump in and share your joy. my 4th and 5th are identical twin boys. they are 2 now, but wow! do you know if they are fraternal or identical yet? If you ever need any advice on twins, I am happy to help.

    Congrats!! I am so happy for you! My twins are six already and i have cherished the gift they bring t our family. They are so so much work in the begining, but can teach you so many wonderful lessons in living in the moment, allowing others to help you, and trusting in god. I wish you all the best!!

  38. says

    Oh, Sarah! 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! :-)
