For Erin and Ted

Today I’m using my little space on the internet to congratulate one blogger friend (I’m guessing most of you know Erin and Ted, but if not definitely go say hi) on the impending arrival of not one, but two precious little girls. The two of them have shared their journey to this point so openly and honestly, when I read Erin’s tweet that she was carrying twins, I may or may not have cried at work.

Erin and Ted,

The two of you are going to be amazing parents and have such wonderful adventures with your daughters. I wish I could be with you today as you celebrate at your shower. You’re so lucky to experience double the blessings these girls will bring into your lives. I know from your journey that the two of you wanted these two little girls more than anything and I know that you will love them with every fiber of your being. There will be double the joys, the laughs, the tears. Honestly, I can already envision the two of you down the road watching your daughters hit all the milestones of childhood and the teenage years -- watching them with pride as they grow into the people they will become, being there when they stumble and need a shoulder, and knowing that you will be there with them every step of the way.

I can’t think of any two other people better suited to parent these little girls.

Congratulations and I am so, so happy for the both of you.

I am looking forward to following along (and making sure they are properly introduced to The Gilmore Girls and Harry Potter).

This post is part of an effort organized by Renee of Belle Renee. Please stop over to Erin’s blog, The State That I Am In and wish them congratulations on their twin daughters.
