SURPRISE!!

I wrote a post a few weeks ago celebrating our tenth wedding anniversary.  I’d been feeling a bit unwell lately, so imagine my darling husband’s surprise when, after our anniversary dinner, I shouted “SURPRISE!” and announced that I’d just discovered that we were having our third child.  How wonderful! How unexpected! A surprise indeed.

Then we were robbed ten days later.  SURPRISE!

Today’s surprise took place at the first ultrasound. My dear friends, I am not exaggerating in the least when I tell you that my breath was taken away.  We saw the baby for the first time.  Then, SURPRISE!  There’s another baby!  Twins!  We’re having twins!  I couldn’t believe it.  Can you believe it?

But since we never do anything halfway, SURPRISE, SURPRISE, there are actually three babies.  That’s right. Triplets.  Suddenly we will go from two kids to five.  I can’t wrap my head around it, yet.  Although excited, I don’t think that my heart can take any more surprises.  At least for another day or two. 😛

So let me reel for a while. And then we party! Celebrate with me! 😀

  1. I’m not left speechless very often, but I’m at a loss for words tonight, darlin’. I’m just going to congratulate you, I think. Yes.

    Congratulations!

    *goes back to being speechless*

  2. OMG, Mercedes…triplets…that is great and awesome and OMG all at the same time. How amazing! What a change this will be!
    I wish you all the very best!

    Biggest hugs,

    Ardee-ann

  3. Three? Oh. Em. Gee. I’m right there with you collapsing on the couch because that…? That I can’t imagine.

    When we recover, we’ll stand up and dance and squee together, but for now, I think I’ll just sit. Yeah, sitting is good. 🙂

    Congratulations x 3!!!
