Twins: Revealed

Jim and I had our 17-week anatomy scan for the twins today. We were thrilled to see two healthy babies! We’ve been counting down to today, waiting to find out the sexes of twins. The timing is perfect… my parents arrived at the airport this afternoon to help us pack for the move to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, next week. I loved telling them *in person* about their grandbaby twins.

Here’s a video of Patrick and me finding Honey and Pops at the airport to tell them about the twins. The video is shaky and not always on-target, but it captures their emotion and excitement. It will be great to show to the twins someday.

One boy + one girl. The twins are exactly what I hoped! As soon as I heard they were twins, I imagined us with another awesome son and a precious daughter. Patrick will be a wonderful brother to his little brother and sister.

Honey and Pops are thrilled that we are expecting a girl and a boy. We made quite a scene walking through the airport, decorated in pink and blue.

I’m going to bed tonight feeling grateful for two healthy babies and feeling lucky for the perfect combination of one boy and one girl. As my tennis-playing brother put it, we scored with a team of “mixed doubles”!
