"The Happiest Morning of Our Lives"
About 4:30 am, I woke up to use the bathroom and take a home pregnancy test. You have to pee on a stick! Maybe when it's time for you or your wives to get pregnant, they will design something less icky to tell if you're going to be a parent. I lay back in bed, trying not to be too nervous because we'd already had several negative tests. A few minutes later, I got up and saw...a plus sign! Was I imagining it? It was very early, after all.
I ran into the bedroom with it and shook your dad awake. He turned on the lamp to get a better look. "It's a plus sign. That means..." he looked up at me and I nodded. We laughed and hugged and kissed. Excited and elated, we couldn't get back to sleep. A blood test that day at my doctor's office confirmed the results. You were on the way!
Your loving father is a thoughtful and generous husband as well. He bought me a dozen roses the day we learned we were pregnant. He bought me another dozen the day we learned you were twins!
Today was also a good day at our house. Daddy got to stay home and play in the morning before leaving on a business trip and then Matthew helped him pack.
Then our buddies A and G visited. The boys are all 4 and half months old now. Look how big they are!
And last but not least, I put both boys down to bed BY MYSELF for the first time. Whew!
