one year ago today/ 14 week sonogram


One year ago today I was 19 weeks pregnant, my Mom, Destinee, Jason, Kenya and I all loaded up and headed to my midwifes office to have our first sonogram for that pregnancy (see that video here). We couldn't wait to see the baby. I was wondering, "could it be twins???" We were all shocked and surprised to find out that we would not only be having twins but they were conjoined. I wrote more about that here.

Our lives were forever changed that day. Thinking back to everything we went through with the twins it just amazes me that is has already been a year. When I remember that day I remember calling our closest family and friends so excited to tell them we were having twins but then I always had to follow the exciting news with, "but wait we need you to pray because they are conjoined." You see I was so excited to be having twins, I loved my babies. I was also devastated at the news that they may not make it but at the same time I was so proud to be their Mom. I have never had so many emotions run through my head in one day. God has brought us so far in a year.

One year ago it was all I could do to try to breath and not completely have a melt down now a year later we are praising God for the new life He is growing inside of me. We talk about Melody and Madison almost every day. Kenya always talks about her little sisters how much she loves them and how cute they are, she even remembers holding them and singing to them. We have not forgotten them and we never will but God has indeed turned our mourning into dancing (Psalm 30:11).

I want to introduce you to Baby Delgado #4 (yes I realize you have already seen pictures)
Here is the video and pictures from my 14 week appointment enjoy this sweet baby the Lord has blessed us with.
