Christmas twins!

On [name_u]December[/name_u] 12th at 21:15 & 21:31 respectively, we welcomed twins following a successful VBAC! They were born at 36 weeks on the dot. As they are premature, they are both in the ICU but are thankfully doing well and we hope to get them home on [name_u]Christmas[/name_u] [name_f]Eve[/name_f] if all goes well. They will join siblings [name_f]Hermione[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f] ‘[name_f]Mimi[/name_f]’ (8), [name_m]Ferris[/name_m] [name_u]Jay[/name_u] (6), [name_u]James[/name_u] [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] (2), [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] [name_f]Hallie[/name_f] ‘[name_f]Eva[/name_f]’ (2) & [name_f]Lucia[/name_f] [name_u]Teagan[/name_u] ‘[name_f]Lucy[/name_f]’ (2).

After much consideration and debating, we settled on [name_f]Sophie[/name_f] [name_f]Maren[/name_f] & [name_u]Jonah[/name_u] [name_u]Blake[/name_u]. [name_f]Sophie[/name_f] and [name_u]Jonah[/name_u] are both of Hebrew origin which honours mine and DH’s Jewish faith. [name_f]Maren[/name_f] is in honor of DH’s sister whose middle name is [name_f]Mary[/name_f] and [name_u]Blake[/name_u] is and [name_f]English[/name_f] name which honors my [name_f]English[/name_f] heritage.

Thank you to everyone who voted on the polls and answered my (numerous) posts, it really helped narrow down our list!

Best wishes, [name_f]Emily[/name_f] M.

Yes! I was one of 7 myself (plus I’m a twin) and I wanted to have a big family of my own! We’re very lucky and I’m forever grateful!
