Lori & Jeff Plus XX

I had the rare treat of getting a mani/pedi last week and the manicurist made the mistake of asking me if I had kids. After the initial awkward banter, we moved into talk of the impending adoption. She kept telling me that she had a "feeling" we would end up with twins. The funny thing is that I've heard that from quite a few people. Couple that with my recent obsession with tv shows about large families (Jon & Kate +8, Kids By The Dozen, etc) and I'm beginning to wonder if I'm being prepared for "something." Maybe it's twice the wait for twice the kids. Or maybe that's just how I'm coping with the anticipation.

Regardless, I'm actually feeling okay with the wait right now...whether I'm waiting for one baby or an entire basketball team of babies. A ringing phone doesn't stop my heart anymore. I can even go an entire day without thinking about the adoption. Now that's progress!

I've got the room ready, bag packed and bottles washed leaving nothing to do but enjoy sleeping in. Cause when Dora & Diego...or the basketball team of babies...or one sweet baby arrives, I'm sure sleep will be nothing but a distant memory.

I love Jon and Kate plus eight. I watch in stupefaction at what they deal with every day! I think it must come in handy to be a nurse.
Well, bring on Dora and Diego, I say you are sure ready. Enjoy the sleeping in.

As you already know I am on the twin bandwagon as well! You also made my heart skip too. I thought you had gotten the call. You are just trying to get us to feel what it is like to wait in anticipation and that was the phone ringing, but not THE call. Thanks. Beth

I think that would be so awesome!
I know I haven't signed recently, but I have been keeping you in my prayers. Keep hoping and praying - I am!
Love,
Emily
