The twins are thriving as they edge closer to Lauren’s due date. Lauren and Arie went to Instagram to share their latest update with fans. They alternate from week to week who shares the updates. This week was Arie’s turn. He started sharing another beautiful side shot of Lauren with one hand on her hat and the other on her bump.
Arie said, “Hi you two! 24 weeks old, heyyo! So tonight your mom and I are watching The Bachelor. Long story, but one day we’ll share it all with you. :)” He went on to share that he’s read up on their growth progress based on weeks in the womb. He reports the twins can hear what is going on in the outside world. Arie shared it’s time to start reading to the twins and playing their favorite songs.
He concluded his post saying, “Baby boy you’re 1lb 8 ounces and baby girl you’re 1lb 6 ounces, trending above even the singletons so Mom looks like she’ll have her work cut out for her 😉 Stay healthy in there, we love you so much!”
The twins are their rainbow babies
Lauren and Arie shared of a miscarriage last May. It devastated them both. In fact, Lauren recently spoke of her loss and being pregnant this time. She went to Instagram in the beginning of March to share her thoughts along with a stunning pregnancy photo.
Lauren said, “this time around has been different to say the least. the darkness that surrounds a loss is something not easily forgotten. the months of mourning, the months of hoping, to now, moments of worry. even in the midst of something as beautiful as new life, that darkness finds its way in to remind me that it did in fact exist.”
She goes on to say her loss tarnished the blissful ignorance she felt when carrying Alessi. Lauren said, “I’m proud of my second & third babies for growing so well and grateful for all the reminders they send me saying, ‘mom, we’re okay.’ I’m proud of my journey through the darkness, because without that, the light i see now wouldn’t shine quite so bright.”
Arie and Lauren are expecting their twins to arrive closer to June.
