King & Queen Turns One!

From the very moment I find out I was pregnant with you both, I felt an instant message from God. Even though my mind was telling me “are you sure?” And giving me doubt, I always felt that God knows that our family needed you both. I always had plans to start school again and to be working outside of the house with your older brothers and sister. We couldn’t have seen this coming even if it slapped us in the face. The names King and Queen would be your stance in life.

How we told your older brother about you! It still took him a couple of minutes to figure it out πŸ˜‰

He was so excited that there were TWO babies! And warning* this blog post will be full of pictures and probably misspelled words, because I’m so emotional.

When we found out there were a girl and boy!

You were almost exactly one pound apart from each other! The same length and we thought this was SO sweet.

I had a c section and I just couldn’t wait to see your faces. Queen, you were born with irregular breathing and had to be taken away from me for the first 8 hours. My heart was so heavy, but daddy was with you every step of the way. I was so stressed, because they didn’t allow you to eat the entire time. Your brother was breastfeeding and we started off so strong, just missing you. You were both that afternoon and I didn’t see you until later that night. So small and fragile.

This moment…It felt as if my whole world were complete again. Not knowing how it would be once home, but we were ready for whatever! I know your brothers and sister were excited to meet you!

The princess Leilani meeting Queen for the first time! Little did I know that I would have set up appointments to hold you because daddy would keep you to himself.

One month old…

It’s exhausting looking this cute!

Three months…

I dressed you alike for all of the holidays and cute twin sayings!

Yasssss! Orange is the new black!

Thank you for following us on this journey!

My handsome man!

King and Queen turns one!
