About Me

My photo
I'm Alison, a thirty-something, married, mother of two girls, with a passion for animals of all kinds. My family adopted our goofy, lovable dog {Charlie} from a local shelter. It breaks my heart to know there are countless animals out there being mistreated {to say the least} and I would love more than anything to help even one animal find a loving forever home. Think adoption first. Find a local animal shelter or animal rescue... don't buy your next pet... rescue him/her!

They are here!

Of course they are...and this post is way over due!  I am so sorry!  It's been a bit of a bumpy road to recovery, nothing too bumpy luckily... but I am pretty much recovered and ready to get back to myself. And back to you in lovely blog-land.  This will just be a quick update- and I will get back here to post a full birth story soon, with all of the details.  For now...
My surro twins were born, as scheduled, January 2nd (at 38 weeks) and their stats are:
Baby A, Sophia Catherine, weighed in at 6lbs 4oz and measured 19"
Baby B, Emily Anne, weighed in at 8lbs 6oz (you read that right...8lbs!) and measured 20"

They are healthy and happy girls, home with their so-in-love-with-them Daddies!

 A few hours after they were born, the first time I got to snuggle them!


  1. Hooray. What beautiful pictures. I can't wait for a post with more details.

  2. Congrat Alison. You sure are good at baking twins. :) I'm sure your IF's are over the moon and loving their time with their lil ladies.

  3. Congratulations!!! What wonderful birth rates! Nice work. :)
