are we really at 24???

so far this pregnancy has been just as easy/uncomplicated as my other 3 have been.  I do feel like I am carrying “lower” than before, but maybe it’s just me.  I feel the girls moving/kicking all the time, especially in the evening after I get my kids to bed and finally sit down and put my feet up. My kids keep commenting on my “fat belly” and how big it is getting. I keep reminding them that it will only get BIGGER in the next few months.

Last weekend Scott, Jess, and Cassidy came down for the “big” ultrasound.  The kids had so much fun playing together!! We went out one night with NO KIDS-it was so fun to just relax and enjoy dinner…..and there were some fun surprises too!! 🙂 🙂 We are all looking forward to spending more time together over Christmas.  And my kids can’t wait to see where Cassidy lives.

Here are a few pictures of my ever growing belly…..and yes, the bathroom is BRIGHT green….it’s the kids bathroom.


24 Weeks – Unbelievable

Sometimes I feel like I’m in a dream. I  think it’s because currently, in my house, there are no tangible reminders that the twins are coming. There’s all the same baby stuff that we’ve had since Cass was little (cause she’s big now :)) But something will remind me and I’ll get all excited again to realize that after a couple years of planning/trying/etc, there ARE babies coming home in March – 2 of them!! It seems really dream-like to me.

K is 24 weeks pregnant today. Realistically that’s 2/3 of the way there, maybe a little less but stay with me here. By the time the holidays are over, she’ll be 30 weeks (Jan 3). That’s unbelievable. And scary. And thrilling. And all those other things that I’m having trouble putting into words. Because I know how fast December always goes and then January and … wow … they will be HERE SOON.

I don’t have anything intelligent to say, just had to get that off my chest. I really miss K and her family and my babies since we left them last week. I can’t wait until they are here after Christmas!

BEST “weekend”

I keep calling it the “weekend” even though it was really Thursday and Friday.

Anyway, we were in VA for 2 days and it was great! Kylene and I had a wonderful tour/meeting with the hospital personnel and feel really positive about how everything is going to go there! The ladies were really nice and gave us all the answers we wanted to hear.

We also had our big ultrasound to confirm everyone is healthy! And pink! Definitely 2 girlies baking 🙂 Now Scott and I can really order cribs and bedding, etc.

Friday night we went to dinner at the Melting Pot with K and M and shared some surprises for them and also the girls’ names. We had a great time hanging out and the kids all played really well together.  Kylene looks awesome and is still feeling good which we are so thankful for! I can’t wait to see her again next month!

the BIG ultrasound

I just realized that our BIG ultrasound is next week. NEXT WEEK we will find out 100% the genders of the babies and see how wonderfully healthy they both are. This is really a big deal. The only milestones left are viability (24 weeks), full term (36 weeks) and birth…It’s really going quickly and I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed.

We are going to dinner with Kylene and Matt next Friday night. We have some surprises for them (hopefully including the girls’ names) and I don’t know when the 4 of us will be able to go out for a nice dinner – alone – again in the near future, so I’m really looking forward to that.

With the holidays coming, the next few months are going to fly by. I don’t want to wish it away but I can’t wait to hold my babies!!
