I am going to let this photo speak for itself. Because there are no other words. Really.Except maybe these: overwhelmed, excited, shocked, WHAT?, huh?, help! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?, boys!, and most of all ELATED! {my mom totally called it.}

Again, congratulations! It was so fun talking the other day--I was bummed I had to hang up for swimming lessons.

You will not only do this well, but in style. What a fun, cute family you will have! (and already have.)

By the way, what's Emily having? When's she due? Your mom must be so excited!

Emily's having a boy also. It's the year of the boy.

Lucky ♥ Holly said...

Congratulations on your super dooper news!

geritebo said...

Congratulations! This is a beautiful and amazing picture.

Jessica Lowenthal said...

we are so thrilled for you! The pics are awesome.

pam said...

Wish I could tell you that 2 are as easy as 1, but I can't. It is well worth it though. When I had my twins, I read a book that said the optimum age to have twins is a woman who is 38 who has had 4 previous pregnancies. This description fit me. I think you are a little youmg. Also this pertained to non identical twins and you say yours are identical. But either way, congratulations! We are excited for your family.

Sarah said...

At least 4 of the previous comments are from moms with twins, or a twin themselves. That's very comforting, somehow. I feel like I am in good company.

Pam, that's pretty much the sentiment I am hearing from moms of twins: it's hard but great! I am trying to focus on the latter.

Thanks everyone!

erin said...

Thanks for sharing! We are so excited for all of you!

Amy said...

Sarah! Congratulations! Wow!

The Skinners said...

russandkatie said...

Muche's Smala said...

How cool, you did want 6 kids right ;) No one has said it, but Mark, dude, you over did yourself!!!! Congrats to the both of you, I'm soooooooo excited for you!!! and that is why you were showing much sooner than you'd expect ;))))

bekki said...

YEAH! twins are the best. I'm so excited for you. It will be easy and hard but worth it. And that is coming from someone with twins.

elizabeth said...

I am sooooooo excited! Two more boy cousins for my baby! Yea!!!!

Emily said...

We are thrilled for our new boy cousins! And also relieved that it's you and not me. But that said, you will be FANTASTIC at mothering 6! Seriously, what lucky kids to come to get to come to your family!

Melanie said...

Owen hasnt stopped talking about it :) I am really happy for you so exciting looks like a boy baby shower on the making

Aimee's Family Journal said...

Whhhhhhhaaaaaatttt!!!!!??????

Becky said...

HOlY MOLY, Sarah!!! Shocked! There is nothing like twins. IDENTICAL? Really? You will be awesome at this job (it is a real big job, by the way, but you will be amazing at it). So welcome to the Mothers of Multiples Club AND the "Yes, I have 6 children" Club!

Now let your kids watch a show and go take a nap!

wendy said...

Hee hee! I totally LOVE it! CONGRATS!!!! :-)

ArocaFamily said...

I am so excited for you. Twin boys are the best... and that comes from experience. So much fun!!! Congrats!

Nancy said...

Oh my gosh, did you have any idea? That is so exciting, my mom and sister seem to think the best time to have twins is either with your first or last children, this way you'll have lots of help! Congratulations times two! Hopefully you're up to making twice the cute quilts!

Sarah said...

i am so lucky to have friends like all of you! thanks for your encouragement! i'll be needing it come delivery time and from then on out!

karajayne,

becky and bekki and arocas,
great to hear from more twin moms!like i said, i'm in good company.

nancy,
i think my older kids will be a huge help. and you're right, i better get crackin' now on something cute for these boys.

Sarah said...

and courtney,
i don't know how you carried triplets! i'm already feeling the weight of this basketball i'm carrying and i'm only 22 weeks. how long did you go?

dana said...

congrats!! How exciting!

Jenni said...

Holy Schmoly! CONGRATS! I wasn't expecting that...I am sooo excited for you! Keep us posted, we'll be checking often! I know you have some VERY good helpers. And it seems our ward should be called "The Ocotillo Ward of the Twins". :)

JenJ said...

Yeah Sarah!! I am so thrilled for you! What lucky and blessed boys these are! Two for one pregnancy! Lovin that!

karen said...

There he is! I knew we would have a boy - I guess it had to come through someone else!:) The only way Matt will get a boy!
