I have heard it time and time again – all my mom friends said it would – but here I am saying that I can’t believe how fast this pregnancy has already flown by, and with that how blessed I feel to have had such a smooth and good ride so far! Since it’s twins we are half way through! I am 18 weeks!
To celebrate the half way point my friend Rockin’ Sara wanted to take us to the pasture real quick one evening and snap some photos of the bump. I talked my husband into it with the promise of a good dinner afterwards. He’s always a good sport – I mean….he did marry me! 🙂
He makes my heart sing! 🙂
We played in the suns rays and she rocked the camera like a rockstar. I feel so lucky to have a friend like Sara who has helped us celebrate all of the wonderful things that have happened in our lives and wiped the tears on the not so great things. She’s what a true friend is all about and she makes me want to be a better friend. She’s the purest example of friendship that I could show these babies when they get here.
I’m just trying to soak it all in, bask in the glow of our blessings and relax for the end half of this pregnancy until we get to meet our bundles. In all the unknowns and all the anticipation that bringing children into the world brings one thing is for sure God is good all of the time – this is what I do know.

~ “It’s not only children who grow. Parents do too. As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours. I can’t tell my children to reach for the sun. All I can do is reach for it, myself.” ~Joyce Maynard
