This Sunday Is The Day!

Well, our Dr. decided this morning that he wants to deliver the twins this Sunday, the 16th. Preeclampsia is starting to set in fast and he wants to deliver before it gets out of control. I am still in shock that we are going to have 2 more little babies this Sunday, it feels surreal, and almost overwhelming. I can't wait to finally hold them, and hear those first little cries. We took the girls out to Build A Bear last night just to do something fun with them before the new twins come. I am sure glad we did it last night.....I had no idea we would be a family of 7 in about 48 hours!
I am so thankful for these new babies, and for what they are going to bring to our family. We are trying to prepare the older girls as much as we can for this big change. Ella is obviously so excited, She can't wait to be my "big helper." Reese & Charlotte however, I don't think completely understand whats happening. They talk about the babies in my belly, but there is no way they can fully grasp what is going on.....it might be a shock to their little systems for them not to be the babies anymore! I know everyone will adjust fine, and that God already has all those details worked out. I am excited to see them love on the new babes and sooooo excited to get a pic of all 5 girls!
I am totally planning on getting one more belly pic before I deliver, I might have Eric take one tonight. I'm sure I will be posting more thoughts tomorrow. Thanks so much for all your thoughts & prayers!!

Oh Kate, I am so excited for you!! I will keep you in my prayers! I will try and give you a call tomorrow so we can catch up a little bit!

You will probably see Denise while you are there. I think the babes are still in the NICU and will be there for a few more days. I knew you would meet eventually. :)

I am so excited for you and your family! I can't wait to see the girls and hopefully meet them soon. Let me know if you need anything!!
