Swept away





I'll write all about my c-section and day soon, but for now, I wanted to say merci beaucoups to all my IRL and URL friends who soldiered by me during the past year. From weaning Piglet to surgery to an IVF cycle and a challenging pregnancy, you have all been there waiting in the wings and I'm so grateful.

Yesterday was a red-letter day at Maison Piglet, as we welcomed our long-awaited identical twin boys into the world. Words cannot describe the joy we felt at hearing their cries and seeing their faces for the first time. We were and still are overwhelmed by our profound love for our baby sons. They are so tiny and precious! And that twin romance thing is real. There is just *something* about there being TWO of them that just sweeps you away. My feet haven't touched the ground since I held them for the first time.

More pictures to come, but here are just a few to tide you over. :) Right now I need to go stare at my babies who are sleeping nose to nose.

Love,
MVK

I am so beyond happy for one of the sweetest families we know. I wish I was there to hold those sweet twinkles, but pictures will have to suffice.
