I'm a MOM

Hello! I'm a MOM (mother of multiples). That's still weird for me to say. Glad we got that out of the way. Today I'm linking up with Heatherfor a MOM "link up party." A little bit about me.... I live in Austin, Texas and have been married to my husband for almost 9 years. We have one boy who is 3 and boy/girl twins who will be 22 months this week. I got pregnant when my little boy was 13 months. Our twins were the shock of a lifetime. Also, I didn't find out until 20 weeks that there were 2 babies. My OB offered a sonogram at 9 weeks but I declined because my bloodwork was great and I was too cheap to pay my deductible in December and then pay again in March. I also believe that God was protecting me. I am a terrible worry wart. Had I known early on, I would have worried so much. I had an amazing pregnancy and carried the babies to almost 38 weeks. I was able to chase my little boy around in the Texas heat during the summer. I got to eat ice cream daily because I wasn't gaining enough weight. Looking back, I should have eaten more and lived it up! Oh well. I love my life so much. Yes, some days are tough but I then remember that I am blessed with 2 snotty noses to wipe and two diapers to change at a time. Some people don't even get one. I am looking forward to our weekly link ups. I am hoping this will get me blogging more :) Man, this is a RANDOM post. I promise I'll get better.
