one boy, one girl.

I think being an infertility patient, I always knew that twins could be in our future. But it didn't happen with Mason... and it didn't happen with Payton. So I guess I really thought it would not ever happen. Clearly the third time is a charm, right?

I can't lie and say that my mind never wandered... and I always said that if we did have twins... ever, in our lives... that one boy and one girl would be perfect for our family. Mason would get a brother... which seriously is what he wants so badly... and we would get our typical girl... a sister for the girls.

One boy, one girl it is.


We had a little gender reveal party to reveal to our family and closest friends the sex of the babies. We have actually known since around nine weeks... our infertility doctor was able to get that information from a genetics study we participated in and our nurse left the information on my voice mail. We really had not planned to find out that way... but my screams to drown out her voice mail before I could turn my phone off did not work.

One boy, one girl. We are so happy.


No party of ours is a party without some fun little details. We order a box o'sandwiches from Pot Belly, which worked perfect. Add a fruit salad, some pasta salad and some sweets... wa la. For drinks, we had pink lemonade and some assortment of blue gatorade.




One boy, one girl.

  12. It shouldn't ever really matter whether a baby is a girl or a boy,plenty of studies by parent child development pyschologists show that girl and boy infants are born biologically more alike than different with very few differences,but are perceived and treated systematically very differently by parents and care givers right from the moment of birth on. Sorry to say,but the catagorizing of balloons and cup cake icing as pink and blue,is already gender stereotyping your unborn babies.

    1. I'm sorry you are so unhappy in your life that you feel the need to come here to ruin other's happiness. Us sharing the sex of our babies with our friends and family has nothing to do with your views on gender stereotyping, "Anonymous".

    2. Wow 'anonymous' you sure are bold under your 'anonymous' title there! Maybe you should STFU and mind your own business and keep your nasty comments to yourself unless you can 'man up'(I bet that pisses you off that I said man up, doesn't it? And yes I am stereotyping) and put your name behind your words. I mean seriously...babies are born more alike than different huh? But still different right? Baby boys aren't born with a way to give birth to a child and baby girls aren't born with parts that make it easy to pee standing up...but we're born more alike than different huh? Since the beginning of time women have taken care of the babies and the men went and hunted for food. It's because we are born with those instincts. The fact that you are harping on this family for using pink and blue is rediculous. You have issues. Seriously psychological issues, and for the sake of the rest of us go get yourself checked, and for crying out loud don't his behind anonymous!!!!

    3. Not so anonymous on Litchfield St in Philly, are we? Just sayin '

  16. I must confess that over here in the United States, it is very difficult to get a powerful spell caster that will be able to restore broken marriages or relationships, But through the help of the internet, i was able to get in touch with this powerful spell caster called UDE GRACE, after reading a lot of good reviews about her on the internet, so i contact him through these details via email:, And after i told her about my relationship stress then UDE GRACE told me to calm down that my lover will come back to apologies to me, for leaving me, I never taught that this was going to be possible, Just within 48 hours that i contacted UDE GRACE my lover sent me and a sms text saying that i should forgive him and before i knew it he was already at my place begging me to accept him back. you can contact her on Trust me she will help you with the right solution you needed


  17. I and my boyfriend were meant to be forever but he met another girl at his work place.

  18. Hi, i would like to comment on Doctor Osemu Okpamen and his dealing with my need. I contacted him in desperation over my girlfriend of a year that broke up with me and went back to her EX-boyfriend. Consequently the break up has been devastating so much so that I've considered and still consider suicide as my only option to relieve the pain and agony in me. I felt heart broken and it affected me that i couldn't concentrate properly at my place of work for i very much loved her and need to get her back and my last chance was getting a love spell. I entered on the website and made contact with the Doctor for i read that he has a lot of positive feedback with his spells. I’m not disappointed because my lover came back to me within 24 hours after getting a love spell from the Doctor called Osemu Okpamen. We are happy couples now and if you need any kind of help, Email him on ( or whats-app +2348135254384 ). Michael Snapp, +1 (305) 647-6660 USA.

  19. As much as i would like to advice and give my testimony how i resolve my marriage problems, typing a long text wouldn't help me tell the truth better so i would just be straight forward in what i have to say.First love spell are real second if you are to contact any spell caster be very careful so as not to contact the wrong one as at now the only one i would recommend is Ajayi Ololo.He helped me with my marriage problem and some other thing i needed to be fixed can really give details here.At a time it was hard to trust him because he asked for material i had to pay for or produce as wrong as i was,i thought he was reaping me off my money as the non-real and fake spell caster did.Just when i thought to say no more he finished what i had asked him to do for me. I felt humiliated for not trusting him at first.For me i can say he is real and if you ever contact him have no fear you're safe with him because he can fix the longest broken relationship you can see other testimony online if you are skeptical about mine.His contact email is


i got no shame... i love reading your comments... anyone who says they don't care about comments is lying... so let's hear it... muah!
