twin pregnancy

 

  Somehow Jeff and I just blew right past an enormous milestone, gracing it with nothing more than a brief conversation. I’m sorry, babe— I need to give it more than that.

I’ve been quiet on the blog lately. For the past 2 months or so, I’ve been digesting the news I learned back in September: the news that not only am I pregnant, I’m pregnant with TWINS!  I’ve had trouble coming out with this noteworthy bit of information here, mainly because it’s so difficult for me…
