Meet Emily and Lindsey

Emily and Lindsey, peas in a pod

Emily and Lindsey are two very sweet and beautiful girls.

We were so excited to find out we were expecting our first baby. And though I thought for sure it was going to be a boy, Daddy felt right away that it was a little girl. Pregnancy was kind of rough, but new and exciting. We couldn't agree on a name for the longest time and finally narrowed it down to Alice and Emily. When Emily was born with a sweet little cry and that dark black hair, we knew she was our Emmy. Emily Jean. She weighed 7 lbs 2 oz and was 19 inches long. We had such a great time with her for 3 wonderful years it was 3 peas in a pod. Then we found out that we were blessed once again with another baby on the way-

It had taken some time getting her to come, but Lindsey was on her way. This time mommy knew it was a girl, thanks to two vivid dreams of a girl 3 years younger than Emily. Lindsey was different from her sister, in that she was so content to just be squished inside her mommy. And she was too. Lindsey came very suddenly in the middle of the night when my water broke. She had a fast birth starting from 2 a.m to 4:04 a.m. I guess when she decided she was ready she wanted to come right then! We also had two names to take to the hospital, Lindsey and Ariana. We decided on Lindsey because it seemed to fit her more. Lindsey Brooke. She was 8 lbs 13 oz and 21 1/2 inches long. She has been so sweet ever since.

It has been wonderful having two of the sweetest joys a family could ever be blessed with. They are happy and giggly and bring sunshine into our hearts and our home. We thank the Lord daily for the blessing of rearing and guiding these precious children.
