Big News

So Steven's sister, who is also Ty's mama, and is also known as Aunt Mayme (Amy) is five months pregnant. We've all been waiting anxiously to find out what she's having. We have been keeping our fingers crossed on this end for a girl. Sophie B. has 4 boy cousins and if you count Finn and a few other second cousins, there are 7 boys and ZERO girls. 


Well today she had her 3rd ultra sound. The BIG one. The one where you are 20 weeks pregnant and the tech says "Congratulations! It's a ____. And this time the tech  said, "It's a GIRL!" And it's "ANOTHER GIRL!" TWINS! I'm surprised that Amy didn't pass out right there on the table! Five months and the doctor didn't know! But apparently they are in the same sac so they weren't showing up on the early ultrasounds and their heartbeats have been the same.


So we are beyond excited! Sophie has been making it a point to tell us that "Aunt Mayme has twoooooo babies in her belly!" Amy and Buncle Sean might be feeling a little overwhelmed right now. Ty will probably be around 16 months old when the twins make their debut! But God never gives you more than you can handle. Or in the words of the great Kanye West "n-n-now that that don't kill me. Can only make me stronger." Preach it Kanye. 


Here's the cute family of 3 and it's about to grow by 2!

Tell them not to sweat it. My sister already had 2 kids (ages 4 1/2 and 2 1/2) when she had her twins, and she barely even noticed. (1) They'll have lots of outside help from family and friends who think twins are like unicorns (total sideshow) and (2) they'll just go on autopilot and won't even notice that their family has practically doubled overnight. Or at least that all sounds good in theory! :P Congrats to the happily overwhelmed couple!

That's so exciting!!! So much for technology, but hey, maybe it's better to be surprised about that now. :-) So fun for Sophie!

Wow, that's amazing!! I am sweating a little over here knowing what it's like to have another baby (let alone 2)especially when your first is still so little. But it's such a wonderful blessing - and how awesome is it that Sophie's finally going to have two girl cousins!

We can't imagine having two more at the same time along with a 16 month old either! I dont think it has hit me yet! But Kim said it best "God never gives you more than you can handle"! Sophie will love having little girl cousins though! -Amy
