Now that I am finally feeling better, I am able to eat a TON more!!!! I think I am starting to have cravings....meat!

Today Blake and I went outside and racked some leaves. He had a blast jumpping in them and helping me.

These are the moments of just Blake and mommy that I will miss!

Going Public

Today is the first time I am actually going public that we are expecting twins. I have known now for six weeks that we were having these two precious babies. I am now 12 weeks along and had an ultrasound today. It was amazing to see two babies wiggling around. Baby A was waving, moving around a ton and Baby B was laying there relaxed and at one point gave us a wave (in which Jason counted five fingers on his hand).

They are looking good and measuring a week ahead. Almost right next to one is measuring 13 weeks and one is measuring a little over 13 weeks. They are set right next to one another and are fraternal twins! We are thinking we will have one boy and one girl.

I went and saw MFM dr today in which I will be seeing quite a bit through my pregnancy. I get lots of ultrasounds with twins which is wonderful...more views of the little ones is always fun.

Jason went with me today and just grinned and smiled and talked about how excited he is about the twins coming. We celebrated a good doctors appointment over lunch at Rock Bottom..I was able to eat a hamburger and pretzel yummy!

We feel so blessed to finally be able to open about the twins and are trusting God's hand upon this whole pregnancy!

Blake is now 2.5

Blake recently turned 2.5 and he is developing so much. He is into doing puzzles and can carry on a conversation so well. The dr. told me that he has great fine and gross motor skills. She said the fact that he can talk and she, being a stranger can understand him is very good. He is in 90% weight and 50% height. Blake is still working on being potty trained.

Today I wasn't feeling well, and he said " mommy feel better" He kept giving me so many hugs today. He also is into something we call a family hug. Every night when Jason gets home we make a big circle standing up and hug eachother at the same time...a family circle hug. He loves it! He asks for it! He gets the biggest smile on his face when we do our family hug.

Lastly, Jason has to give him a kiss, hug, and rub on head and me a kiss, hug, and rub on head before he leaves for work. He thought Jason forgot one morning and ran after him. "Daddy me hug! Daddy me hug!" My dad told me that's how I was when I was a kid.

Blake has recently started praying out loud with us. He will begin his prayers...usually it's "Jesus...mumble...mumble....Amen!" I love those moments!!!
