Thanks for all of this detail and congratulations on this achievement!

Would you recommend this same order for someone else to take the exams? I have all three Associate certifications and I have the Security and Network specialty certifications but I'm not sure which exam to try next. I plan to do both the Devops and SA Professional exams.

Honestly, I don't think it would really matter you. I would do the Devops first as well and then the SA Pro. I found the Devops easier than the SA Pro, but also way more difficult than any associate exam. Knowledge wise the Devops is more focused while the SA Pro is way more broader. The SA Pro also expects from you to know some stuff which is required for the Devops.
I would recommend going with the Devops first, although other people (like Adrian Cantrill) would recommend doing the SA Pro. In any case, I think you will pass them without any difficulties.
