Double Trouble

Well, it's quite public knowledge now, so I suppose I can post it on our family blog: We are expecting TWINS! They are officially due on March 28, my birthday. But twins do not go quite that long, so we hope to have them healthy and strong sometime in early March. 

We are thrilled and terrified at the same time. It's a great blessing to have two babies join our family, and I'm sure they will be cute as buttons. But I ask myself every day: "How do you bathe  two infants?" "How do you nurse to infants?" "How do you rock and cuddle two infants?"

And then if I'm being honest with myself, we're really talking three babies. Bryce will be just 21 months when the twins are born, so that means we'll have three children under the age of two. How do you take care of three babies?!

But I'm sure we'll figure it out, and just have three times the fun. =) Bryce will be an excellent big brother. We can already see the gleam in his eyes as he thinks about all the trouble he can get his baby siblings into. 

And that's the big news of the Thomson family. We're tripling our child count in one go. Whew!
