Baby A and Baby B! 18 weeks

We got an unexpected treat of having an early ultrasound this week to check on the twins and to find out their genders!  I have no words to describe how grateful I am that these two are healthy and moving and have beating hearts.  I am overwhelmed by the opportunity to carry them and feel them move.  It seems as if I pray for them every minute and every hour.  I often wondered if I would get this chance again, and can't believe they are growing inside of me.  It is so amazing and still feels unreal, but it also feels like the most beautiful miracle possible.  

Here is a short video of our two little ones.  

We are having a girl and a boy!  

"The Lord compensates the faithful for every loss. That which is taken away from those who love the Lord will be added unto them in His own way. While it may not come at the time we desire, the faithful will know that every tear today will eventually be returned a hundredfold with tears of rejoicing and gratitude."  Joseph B. Wirthlin


  1. I'm sure the best words to use to describe how I feel! Elation, gratitude, excitement, and giddiness come to mind! A boy and a girl. What more could you ask for? Quadruplets??!! =)

  2. Such a happy answer to your previous heartaches and to your faith and prayers. So happy for you. I will share this with KEXIA If I can. She has two little girls. An 18 month old Coco and a 4 month old Daisy.

  3. This news just keeps getting more and more AWESOME!
    I had 9 heart-breaking miscarriages in my child-bearing years, but was blessed to have a girl and a boy and it's been wonderful. They are so different and it's been my joy to experience raising them. SO happy for you!

  4. Jules, I heard "your song" today and thought of your blog. You have a great gift to express yourself in words. I am so inspired by your faith. You are teaching me so much. You have such a wonderful family, I am so excited to hear that two more are on the way! When are you due? Love you, Jamie Washburn Ripa

    1. Jamie! It's so good to hear from you! I am due in July and getting bigger every day! We are so excited to welcome these babies. Are you in Korea? I hope you are doing well!
