Garrett and Landon were our miracle babies. They were the babies that every doctor and fertility specialist we saw said we would never have.
Most people, including both Tim and I, give up hope when they hear there's only a 1-3% chance of conceiving a take-home baby without any medical intervention.
We had already experienced 3 IVF's, 1 FET and 3 miscarriages, which left us disappointed and heartbroken yet, at the same time, grateful that at least one of our IVF cycles had resulted in the birth of Cole and Bella, our 1st set of twins.
It was obviously God's plan for us to be a small family of 4....or so we thought. He sent Garrett and Landon to us just when we had lost faith that we would have more children.
God threw us a curve ball...which turned out to be the most wonderful curve ball ever.
Never will I forget peeing on a home pregnancy test and practically falling to the floor in shock when 2 lines appeared almost instantly. Nor will I ever forget the day I went in for my very first ultrasound and learned we were having ANOTHER set of twins...conceived without any medical intervention or any effort on our part.
Garrett and Landon have gone from this...
And our family has gone from this...
Garrett and Landon are not only a gift from God...but they have also completed our family, in a way I never could have imagined myself.
Happy 3rd birthday to my babies, Chickie and Eeeeee!! It's hard to keep from looking back at those baby years without feeling a tiny bit nostalgic but I know we have so many more happy times to come (like, perhaps, being completely 100% potty trained?)
If interested, read their birth story here.
I'm still playing catch up on my blog reading...I didn't forget anyone! Man, this whole juggling act is TOUGH!
