One year ago today...

It’s hard to believe a year ago today, I was counting down the hours until my scheduled c-section. I’d had an amnio done earlier in the day to determine the babies were ready to come out. Even though they were 2 days shy of 36 weeks, they were fully baked. I think they were more ready than me and Mike. I’d focused on keeping them inside for so long, I didn’t think about them actually being here. A part of me, didn’t allow myself to dream that far because of what happened with Matty & Issy. But now a year later, here they are. Being a parent to Luke & Bree has been the most rewarding, most difficult, most amazing year of my life. It took us a long while to get here, but it’s so worth it.
