From the beginning

I figure that I should start from the beginning.

On November 20, 2009, Lisa went into the doctor's office for - what we thought - was the "routine" first prenatal visit. Having two healthy kids already, we figured it would be a lot of information we had heard before, including prescriptions and paperwork. That's why I decided to stay home and take care of the kids that day.

Much to my surprise, when Lisa came home, she said, "You need to sit down." I knew immediately.

"No way!" I said, before she had the chance to share the news.

"Yep - baby 1 [pointing at one twin] and baby 2 [pointing at the other."

The first few days were a mix of shock and excitement... expecting twins in June, before our son's 4th birthday and daughter's 2nd birthday. And yet we knew that God would take care of us through it all.

This is our first picture of the twins.
