When was the last time you thought “I didn’t see that one coming”?

Honestly? Probably when my water broke. I stopped trying to figure out how things might go after that. 

We were prepared (as much as you can be) for the boys to be born about a month early. But almost three months early? Who thinks that can happen to them? Especially when you’ve had a remarkably healthy pregnancy with no indications of preterm labor.

Since then, I’ve just taken things as they come to us. I have very few expectations about things or when milestones might happen. I just celebrate (or cry on the inside with terror) when they do!
