Chapter 30- Dear H & L

Dear Hadley and Layton,

It feels like Christmas Eve! You will know the excitement of this feeling very soon! Tomorrow you will both make your grand appearance and change Michael and I's life forever. We are so excited to meet you and feel blessed to have the opportunity to be your Mommy and Daddy. God knew what he was doing giving us this gift!  It has been such a fun pregnancy.  You both have been so sweet as you haven' t caused any morning sickness, indigestion, growing pains, too much weight gain :), and/or stretch marks... nothing!! Thank you! Now if only raising you two would be this easy. :) Tomorrow you will both be 36 weeks old... therefore, we get to meet you! My blood pressure rose a little and they want you to both arrive a week early. We are okay with this as the doctors say that you both look wonderful. I will always treasure the feeling of your movements and the blessing it is to grow two tiny lives.  We yearn to remember these wonderful emotions with gratitude.  Our hearts are bursting with excitement and love for the two of you! I don't know how we will sleep tonight, we probably wont, but then again, you are both worth it!!

Happy Birthday EVE!

We love you,
Mommy and Daddy

Family and friends: We are planning on having a "family day" on Wednesday when our little one's arrive. We welcome all of our friends to come visit on Thursday and Friday. The Tennison Family of four :) will be at Baylor McKinney Hospital until Saturday morning. We can't wait for you all to meet Hadley and Layton Tennison! You are all welcome to visit at our home as well. We welcome visitors!!


  1. Oh my gracious.... I don't think I'll be able to sleep tonight either. I CAN'T WAIT!!

  2. Hadley and Layton don't know what they have waiting for them. Prayers for you and Michael to have wisdom and patience as you become parents. Grace we all will receive from these babies. Everyday Praise God! Mom (Lala in waiting)

  3. You are going to be a mommy of children tomorrow! What an amazing blessing! Please know I will be lifting you and your entire family in prayer!

    I am very excited for Lala too! She too is in for the ride of her life! Being a Nonna has been amazing for me, but seeing our daughter become a wonderful mommy (and son in-law become an awesome daddy)has been equally delightful!
