Read The Bible With Me By The End Of 2017!

Anyone else get sad every time one of your Bibles is worn out and needs replaced? All my notes and underlines, with dates jotted all throughout the margins. What everyone assumes are coffee stains, but are really the pigment from flowers I pressed from my grandfather’s funeral. 4 leaf clovers hidden here and there from days when I’ve read outside.  All special memories and reminders of how God used specific passages to comfort, encourage, and spur me on.

The Day Our Family Doubled {Kramp Twin Birth Story}

One of my fears throughout my twin pregnancy was that I wouldn’t recognize the signs of labor when they came. Every mom that heard me say this laughed at me. “Oh, you’ll know!” Even the nurses I met in the hospital the week I was on bed rest reassured me. “Contractions will stop you in your tracks.”

Well, they were wrong.

It was interesting having a twin pregnancy first, and then going to a singleton less than a year later. Generally women show more with their second child, so I feel like I didn’t get an accurate comparison between singletons and twins because of this. I think I show later in pregnancies in general, but I do feel like my bump appeared sooner this time, especially considering the fact that there was just one baby in there! And it wasn’t until about the mid 20s that I could really see a significant difference between my singleton and twin bump size… at least not in the photos.
