One Hundred Days To Go

31 Jan

Right now I’m on a work trip in Dallas, Texas. It’s been a crazy trip, partially because I’m trying to fit in as many client meetings as humanly possible before the twins arrive.

Today is also a big day for us, as it officially marks one hundred days until our twins’ due date of May 11.

Here in Dallas, while having lunch between work meetings, I got a text message from Matt.

“Hey baby,” the text said.

I immediately texted back and said, “Hey!” I thought he was just being sweet and checking in.

What I didn’t realize was that, if he’d spoken it aloud, his voice would have gone up at the end of the phrase. It wasn’t a greeting, but a tantalizing statement trailing off. My phone dinged again and in came a photo message that made my jaw drop:

twins car seat

I was speechless when the image first loaded. All I could immediately text back was “!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” Totally took my breath away.

He also sent a photo of the double stroller these car seats snap into, sitting right in our living room. That was crazy because the thing is at least two-thirds the length of our large sofa. It’s just huge.

Seeing these car seats is just amazing to me. Our kids are going to be sitting in these car seats. Before summer begins.

Tomorrow the baby countdown goes from triple digits to double digits….

    Your babies are so beautiful! What an amazing family, congrats to you all for finding each other! I’m expecting twins in November and just curious about what type of car you drive and what type of carseats you have… We are driving a golf now and my husband has long legs, so I think we may have to look into a new vehicle to accomodate two rear facing seats!

      We drive a Mazda 6 and there are two Graco Snugride 35 car seats in the back. We love them because they snap into the bases and easily click into a snap-and-go stroller.
