Baby Update 2

We had a wonderful appt. The ultrasound tech was a gem! She said that the babies are growing fine. Everything looks good. Here is the news everyone is waiting for! We have 2 BOYS joining our family! We have one name picked out and I am waiting for Jason to pick the other. He did so well with Nate's name that I am sure he will come up with another cool name! When we have 2 names, we will share!

Today is the Day!

I have my big ultrasound at 10am today!!! We have a friend coming with her son to play with Nate. Thank you again Laura!

I can't wait to find out the genders of these two. I do want a little girl, but I need to accept what God gives us because he knows the plan for our family and he will give us what is perfect for our family. I can't wait to put names to these two miracles. I can't wait to know who is going to join our family in 4-5 months. I am still in awe that we are having twins! I am giddy that we are going to be a family of 5 come January. In my mind, there would only be 4 of us when we were done having babies. Not according to Gods plan though!!!

Off do to some things before we have to leave for the appt. Nate is up early this morning. He usually doesn't get up till 8:30 or so. Now it's 6:30am. Too early!

I will update later. Our immediate family will be called first and then we will email friends and family and then I will update here.

Found what I was looking for!

I decided that after we came home from the farm, I would start working on Nate's big boy room. My sister-in-law was so generous to give me a sheet set and a blanket. The sheet set has a transportation theme which is kinda what I was looking for. So with the colors out of that, I decided on an off white base for color for the walls and then 2 colors at chair rail hight. I wanted red and blue stripes. One of each color around the room. How hard would it be to find the colors? I took the pillow case in to match and couldn't find anything remotely close. Today, I decided to try again. With Jason and Nate we took off for Home Depot. Jason and Nate were looking at the Disney colors. Nate picked up brochure with Lightening McQueen on it. As I was looking at it, there was a red that matched the red I need perfectly!! I found a blue that would work too. So excited! The colors are: red:Three Cheers for Pooh and blue: To Infinity and Beyond. Cute names! The guys at the paint counter were very helpful. I didn't pick up the right type of paint for the colors so the guy went to get what I needed. I got a quart of each color and a gallon of the Popcorn white.

Now we need to work on the back room to make room for the computer and the train table. I need to remove a few things and we should be set. After that, we need to tackle the office and get it cleaned out. I will clean the office and the walls. I will cut in with the white and see if Jason will paint the rest. I don't know if I need to be painting so much being pregnant. He will need to mark off the stripes too. After that is all done, we need to look for a head board for the bed and get a mattress set. I will decorate his room little, by little. I need to paint inside the closet in the nursery and the office to get ready for the closet organizers we hope to get before Sept.

Lots to do! Yard work got done yesterday. I am looking forward to all this and getting it done!

What a beautiful day!

The weather is positively beautiful today! The sun is out and the heat is down. There is a nice breeze so I opened up the house.

There isn't a baby update today. Sorry! We have an appt. next Thursday at 10:30am. I am impatiently waiting! The babies have been moving although sporadically. I have one that wiggles like Nate did and one that kicks and punches! The kicking is new to me as Nate never did kick.

I haven't done any type of shopping for baby things. I did do a trade with a friend that needed a pack n play and she had a travel swing that I have been wanting to get. Nice trade! I will have to get another pack n play but I need one that has the double bassinet. I would like to have the twins in our room for at least the first 8 weeks or more if can be. It all really depends when they are born and how big they are. There are 3 pieces of equipment that I will have to buy. We need 2 car seats and a breast pump. Those 3 things I will buy brand new. The last thing I need to get is a Snap-n-go double stroller. I would like to find the stroller used. It's a $100 new but I know I can find them for about $45. I have looked on craigslist but there aren't many listed and if there are, they are the single stroller. So I am asking all who read this, if you know someone or someplace that has one for sale around $45-50 please let me know! I would really appreciate it.

I am glad we find out what the sexes are next week that way I can take advantage of the summer end clearance on clothes! I will be needing it if one of these babies is a girl.

Well, off to fix my hair. Amy and Dave and Nate and I are heading out to the Mills this afternoon. Amy and Dave are taking Nate for a couple of hours there so I can do some shopping and have some mommy time. I may even head across the street and check out Babies R Us.

Have a wonderful day and enjoy the beautiful weather!
