Hello! This is the first month I have participated in ICLW in a long time!
My husband and I suffered through a miscarriage in July of 2010. After much thought and soul searching we decided to proceed with IVF in October of that same year. We were blessed to become pregnant with twins on that very first cycle. Our Zachary and Zoe were born this past summer.
I am touched every single day by just how special these babies are and what joy they bring to our lives. Our Zachary is what I call our grumpy old man. He grunts and groans, and makes my heart melt every single time he laughs or smiles. That boy is a charmer. Our Zoe is probably the single most sweetest creature I have ever run across. Always patient, always happy, and constantly cracking herself up. I prayed for these babies for years and now that they are here I still can't believe it.
I am so excited for our very first Christmas together. My family has always been close, but these babies have brought us even closer. So many people love these babies. My family keeps asking what I want for Christmas, the truth of the matter is that I received everything I ever wanted last July. As long as these babies, are healthy and happy, I don't need a thing.
I hope that each of you have a happy holiday filled with laughter, joy, and above all else family!
