    Ahhh many CONGRATS to you and your newly expanded family! Hopefully this doesn’t sound creepy, but I’ve been following your blog for years, and so for the past few days I have been waiting excitedly to hear the news and kept checking instagram and feedly non-stop. I even got a little teary-eyed with your announcement (could be my 7 month first time pregnancy hormones!).

    Enjoy soaking up lots of time with your beautiful and healthy family! šŸ™‚

  • Trula December 3, 2014, 12:09 pm

    Oh Caitlin, she’s beautiful. Praying for all good things for you and your family.
    I’ve been a faithful reader for over 5 years but never comment. I had a miscarriage around the time Henry was born and now I’m due any day with twins. It was such a delight to me to read about how your lives changed and to see Henry grow. I held faith that our time would come.

    Now we’re just days (or hours!) from meeting new family additions of our own. I just wanted to say thank you for the clear, relevant and real sharing of your daily lives. The whole pregnancy/birth process is so emotional and complicated, it was nice to read about someone else’s experience. You help bring a positive, non judgmental approach. If not for your exposure to some thoughts or ideas, I may have never been made aware. Your work brightens lives. Thank you again.

    • Caitlin December 3, 2014, 12:14 pm

      Aw congrats on your twins and I’m so sorry for your loss. šŸ™ I hope your delivery goes smoothly.

    • Inga @Germany December 3, 2014, 1:10 pm

      Trula, I join in your thanks to Caitlin!

      But your comment deserves some kudos, too. All the best for your exciting time ahead!

    • Aishah December 3, 2014, 4:22 pm

      Best of luck to you- you are in my prayers!! <3 Also, I agree with you, Caitlin's work is amazing… brightens my every day! šŸ™‚
