Peas in a Pod

Peas in a Pod

"We spent month after month hoping and praying to give our daughter a sibling and, when we found out that I was expecting, we knew that we wanted to perfectly capture the moment. We decided to wait until the first trimester was behind us to announce the pregnancy so that provided me the time to figure out how to announce. Well, during that time, we also learned that I was carrying twins so the idea came fairly easily to me. My daughter enjoyed holding the 'two peas in the pod' and my husband and I were so excited to finally share our news. We included the photo at the end of a stack of photos from a recent family vacation, and let the photo share our news."
