Our Babies

Dave and I have called a lot of things "our baby" in the past.  The car, a new fun toy, his plasma TV, my nephews, each other.

Now we will have new things to call "babies" -  our babies.

In March, Dave and I will be parents of TWINS!  I am 3 months pregnant and we couldn't be happier to be doubling the size of our family.  And suddenly our new 3 bedroom house seems a liiiitttttle too small. :)

Some of you know the struggles Dave and I have been through to be here, some of you might not.  Just know that we are blessed to have this happening, blessed to be having 2 little bebes (or "le bebes" as I call them), and I will (try to) remember that blessing when we do twice the feedings and twice the changings.

We prayed for a baby and God blessed us with 2.  Does that mean He has a sense of humor?  Possibly.  But I guess we prayed really hard. Now that we have seen them move around and kick (through the ultrasound) and heard their heartbeats, we already can't imagine not having both of them here with us.

Baby A and Baby B, you are already in our every thought and in our hearts.  We love you (even though you are only 2 inches each right now) and can't wait to meet you.

Yea for 2 Shumway Babies. We are SOO excited for y'all. When did you hear the heartbeats??? Oh that's SO fun the 1st time. Not like I know what it's like the 2nd time, but still. I want to hold them and love them and smell them. Might sound wierd I know, but I LOVE that newborn smell. When I get tired of Gavey-poo getting into everything, I'm coming over and trading you. K? ;). Glad that's settled. Movie night this weekend? OKAY!

Congrats, congrats, congrats!! PLEASE let us know if you need ANYTHING. We're like a walk away ;)
