She is a silly girl, always keeping us laughing!

My first A+ in years...

Yesterday we had our monthly check up with the perinatologist, where I received an excellent report on my successful laziness. Hooray!
So after 2 ultrasounds and an internal check everything was long, closed, and very high. Which as my doctor put it was an A+ report.
The boys are growing fast almost doubling their weight this past month. Baby A who is still head down weighs 1 pound 3 ounces. Baby B who is transverse across the top of my tummy weighs 1 pound 4 ounces.
If you are having a hard time picturing their position imagine a cross in my tummy. Let's just say I hope B turns soon because he keeps lodging himself so high it can be very uncomfortable.
Today I am 23 weeks! Just can't believe how fast it has gone. Below is a pic from last week, but I had trouble posting it last week.

Wise Cracks from a 7 year old...

Overheard this morning in our house:

JP- MOM can you even still see your feet?

As a matter of fact I can still see them, I just prefer or possibly CAN'T reach them anymore!


Well not comfortably anyhow!

Friday Five...

Five things a pregnant lady with twins loves to hear:

1. Hey Cutie!

2. ooh just look at that bump, adorable.

3. You look fabulous!

4. Seriously I think I was that big at 20 weeks with one baby, you really got 2 babies in there?!

5. I just can't wait to hold those babies!


Five things a pregnant lady with twins does not like to hear:

1. Wow you are even bigger today than yesterday.

2. Are you tired?

3. twins?! Good luck.

4. Look at that thing. (pointing to belly)

5. oh 2 boys... yikes.

My little spoon and big bowl are empty...

It is a sad sad day folks...

I have eaten the last of the Edy's Slow Churned Mint Karoke Cookie ice cream and *gasp* my local supercenter doesn't have a single container of it!

Much sadness here, as the boys are anxiously awaiting that little cold divine perfection.

Well maybe One Split Wonder will do the trick.

Let's hope!

1-2am wake up
1-4am wake up
1-open gym
1- zoo
1- arcade
1- photo session
4- way too early mornings
4- way too late evenings
1- sweaty stinky boy
1- exhausted baby girl
1- crabby cranky mommy
1- patient and serving daddy
Sunday night minor league ball game in the big city.

JP enjoyed getting MANY autographs.

AJ's highlight was running the bases after the game. FAST! believe it or not, she passed 10 other people. And yes she was keeping count!


AJ enjoyed a lovely day at the farm.
she did not enjoy the smell IN the barn.



She loved the playground though!




Next up we have a lovely day at the zoo, where we found "nice" goats. As opposed to the goats who tried to eat her skirt at a local theme park.





Highlight of the zoo trip was feeding the giraffe. And let me tell you a giraffe has a LONG leathery scratchy tongue!






Aah golf camp. The boy actually enjoyed 4 days of golf camp last week at one of the local country clubs. He enjoyed playing well in exchange for candy. By the looks of his full pockets each day he played a great golf game!






Boy Scout Day camp on Saturday. JP and Aaron spent an entire day at BS camp. JP stepped up and got a bullseye right away!









First time firing a gun. Yikes!




Soccer Camp at the nearest major university. 4 SEVEN hour long days of nothing but SOCCER. it was a dream for my boy, although he is too modest to really let us know how great it was.

Here he is with his coach, number 20. JP received an awesome evaluation from the soccer camp. His coaches were most impressed with his attitude, determination, coachability, heading a ball, dribbling, passing, shooting, and receiving.
He was very excited to read that his coach said, "...keep practicing and you will go far." As most little boys dream of the "majors" I believe visions of adult soccer playing are definitely in my boy's head now!

21 weeks....


Babies are kicking like crazy! Sunday they finally decided to let their Daddy feel them being rowdy. The second I sit down there is a "party in my tummy". Can't wait to see how much they have grown at our next ultrasound in two weeks.

If you build it, they will come...

For as long as I can remember, if my mom or I had a vision my Dad could complete it. The man can build anything and fix anything.


You want a shed...done in a weekend.


Need to finish a basement...ok.


Want a front porch...piece of cake.


Want a bed made into a JEEP...not a problem.


I never thought even for one second that when I started dating my husband that he too would be as handy as my dad.


I have been so spoiled, by these two men I love so greatly. They have saved me literally thousands of dollars by being so incredibly handy.


So it really was to no surprise that when I asked Aaron to paint the twins room after his long hard day at work, that he agreed. He really is the best Dad ever.


So in a matter of hours the twins room has become a very welcoming space painted with the love and sweat of their Dad, who by the way hates painting. He does however love painting a room for a new member of the family, but only then. :)


Have I mentioned again how much this man I married rocks?

Because I am at a loss of words...

Please click over here for a much needed prayer request for my family.

I could not have picked better words than those my Aunt Julie chose.

Thanks for your prayers.
