twin girl names

so very overjoyed to share the news that these two beautiful baby girls joined our family last monday night, may 28th 2018. please meet beatrice davis and madalena davis! we are on cloud nine. which apparently is a place where, even with the littlest amount of sleep i’ve ever gotten by on, it’s impossible to wipe the smile off my face as i literally can’t stop staring at them all day long.

when they were born, they brought with them the sweetest and most peaceful spirit. it really does feel at times as i cradle and hold them, that heaven is right here, right now, on earth. feeling so incredibly thankful to have carried them full term and that they were born healthy. part of me held my breath this entire pregnancy because you’re told of so many things that could go wrong along the way, even while laboring and then during delivery… that it wasn’t until physically holding them both that i was able to exhale fully while grasping for the words to properly thank my heavenly father. it has been nothing short of a complete pleasure this past week for us, getting reacquainted with our baby girls straight from heaven.

looking forward to sharing more soon, when i’m slightly more awake. ;) going to soak in my babies now, but in the meantime, i’ve shared more photos and words and also some videos over on my instagram this past week if you’d like to follow along there for now.

thank you so much for your love and support the last several months as we’ve anticipated their births and for sharing in our family’s joy as they’ve arrived.

    That was the most surprising (and marvelous) thing after having my baby. That spirit! Really, the best way to describe it is exactly what you said. “Heaven is right here, right now, on earth.”<3 So much love to all of you. I'm thrilled everything went well for you and them.

  5. They are so beautiful. I love a family that looks alike (as I’m the redhead in a olive skin/brown hair family) and love the pictures of your dad that looks just like Samson.

    please, do take the time to just be with your family.
    Although I love reading your posts take the time to relax, recoup, and enjoy.

  27. Tanja Opiasa

    What a miracle that your adorable Baby Girls arrived, congratulations to you, your husband and your lovely family. To look at their heavenly smiles is such a joy, thank you so much for sharing. Absolutely like their beautiful names. I’ve been reading your blog through three pregnancies and the loving, comitted way of of raising your Kids has been inspiring ever since to me. (Carrying our 4-month old boy to sleep while writing this, since everytime I’ll lay down with him he’d wake up, totally with you when it comes to tiredness, but so grateful for each moment of watching how this tiny life grows to its fullest) Wish you all the best in this miracolous time..

    All the Best all the way from Basel (Switzerland)

  28. Rosemary

  34. megan

    Love their names! Where did you come up with Madalena?!

  35. Sadie

    Love this so much! I remember that feeling of familiarity so well. In those early days she would lie on me as she slept, and I would feel her little sighs and wiggles and kicks and remember feeling all of that in my belly. I can’t wait to follow your journey!


  36. Atka

  43. Deanna

    Love their names! Just out of curiosity, I noticed the boys have middle names, but the twins don’t? What’s your stance on middle names?

  44. Bethany Gibbons

    They are such gorgeous babies! I’m so happy for you and your family! <3
    I'd love to see a post about your reactions to finding out you were having twins and I'd also love to know how you chose their names!

  45. Erica

    Congratulations on your beautiful baby girls! I agree with a previous poster – would love to know your story behind choosing their names! I love that kinda thing. :)

    Congratulations family!!! Kissess

  47. Read this poem today and thought of you and those sleepy, wonderful days (and nights) with new babies:

    The children have gone to bed.
    We are so tired we could fold ourselves neatly
    behind our eyes and sleep mid-word, sleep standing
    warm among the creatures in the barn, lean together
    and sleep, forgetting each other completely in the velvet,
    the forgiveness of that sleep.

    Then the one small cry:
    one strike of the match-head of sound:
    one child’s voice:
    and the hundred names of love are lit
    as we rise and walk down the hall.

    One hundred nights we wake like this,
    wake out of our nowhere
    to kneel by small beds in darkness.
    One hundred flowers open in our hands,
    a name for love written in each one.

    ~Annie Lighthart “The Hundred Names of Love”

  48. Jennie

    I just was wondering if they are identical or fraternal? I noticed Madalena looks a lot like Eleanor and Beatrice is Samson’s twin. too cute!

  50. Connie Petruzziello

    No pressure but if you wanted to share it I’d love to hear the birth story. Hope you are recovering well!
