One Prickly Pair: Twins First Birthday

Tuesday, August 15, 2017

Happy birthday to my little miracle babies! Half of me can believe they are one because OY those first six months crawled by but the other half is like what?! because the second six months flew by!

We had the best time partying with our Prickly "Pair." We're so thankful for the friends and family who celebrated our IVF miracles with us. I said it at their party (through ugly tears) but I never thought we would be here. We are overwhelmed and humbled by the Lord's grace and I don't think I'll ever remember His goodness without getting emotional. He has been so incredibly faithful to me even when I struggled with trusting Him.

Also a huge THANK YOU to everyone who supported us during their first year of life. So many of you have been praying for them since they were embryos and it blows my mind. We are humbled by all the love. You have texted, dropped by to check in, brought meals/coffee/groceries, held babies, changed diapers, washed dishes, done laundry, and kept me emotionally stable. We could NOT have done this without all our wonderful family, friends, and IG community. It takes a village!

The Pendry San Diego

Monday, August 7, 2017

We packed our bags and headed to San Diego for a night and left the babies behind for the first time. Cal was easy-peasy and Evie was, well, she was spicy. We call her spicy alter-ego, "Evie G." ;) Luckily she wasn't fussy enough for our sitter to never watch them again so I'm calling it a win! 

We stayed at the Pendry and absolutely loved it! 

We had a great time eating delicious food, feeling the ocean breeze in our hair, and relaxing by the pool. There was no shortage of people watching which kept us quite entertained as well. I highly recommend the Pendry and I'll be going there again for sure!
