With the progression of my pregnancy, we were able to find out the sex of the babies. We were going to share the information at the party.
I bought a new shirt for the party. It was going to serve as my pregnancy announcement.
“Pregnant! Sis that’s amazing!”
Owen Finley and Aiden Grey were the talk of the party (which was the whole point).
And I was like a human Buddha and everyone needed to rub my tummy for luck.
Even Katie was excited about meeting her new cousins. It was a blast gathering everyone in one place to celebrate the upcoming births.
With two dogs, a horse, and twin boys on the way, Finn and I realized we were going to need a bigger house.
I started looking online but Liv was the real savior. She mentioned a farmhouse for sale right next door to her.
Finn and I went over to look at it and we knew as soon as we pulled in the driveway that it was meant to be our own pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
It was a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom house with a barn and a huge backyard for the kids.
We bought it and immediately started in on the renovations. Finn wallpapered with leftovers from my old house and we set to updating the dark woods.
After a few weeks we were ready to move in for good.
While I still loved my white furniture I realized it was not going to cut it with twin boys running around. So I did a blue, yellow, and white theme.
The kitchen was a wonder. I loved that I had a way to bake again. This was going to be the place where we raised our kids. I wanted it to be perfect.
We did the boys’ room up in a jungle theme. Now all we needed were some babies!
We weren’t far from meeting Aiden and Owen. We had just a couple weeks left in the pregnancy.
Finn and I were taking advantage of the last few quiet moments we’d have together. Copernicus was a little jealous but at least he got the stick out of his ass and was behaving like the good dog I raised him to be.
Were we ready to be parents? I didn’t know but we were going to give it a damn good shot.
