Hubby and I met in 1999 and after a long dance through dating I finally decided since I couldn’t stop thinking or talking about him then I must be hooked. After he accepted a job and moved to Missouri we dated long distance for two years before I followed him out to the mid-west.
We moved in together in Kansas City, Missouri, survived one major fight about the superiority of instant pudding versus cook n serve and after Hubby proposed to me in Chicago, Illinois we started the rest of our lives together.
We were married in 2003 and soon after moved back to the Seattle area. Now we’re living the suburban life up in Everett.
Five years into our marriage we decided it was time to expand our family and stopped trying to not get pregnant. After a year of trying and one early pregnancy miscarriage we were pregnant with boy / boy fraternal twins. We let our family know right away I was pregnant but after our earlier miscarriage we wanted to wait to tell everyone about the twins until we were further into the second trimester. That meant we had a couple months of keeping one big secret.
My belly quickly expanded in 38 weeks and the whole family chipped in to help with the preparations for the arrival of the first grandkids for both our sets of parents.
Graham and Miles were born in 2010 at 38 weeks and with much help from friends and family we made it through those rough young times with twins.
