On September 23, 2015, I became a mom of multiples. I gave birth to twin baby girls. I have decided to share the experience of being a new parent to these amazing little girls, including all the challenges, scary and beautiful moments, and hilarious times. My hope is that my experiences will help someone else along this same path or a similar one. Please find my diary entries in order of their publication below.
