Sneak Peek!

Brothers, mommy and twins

We were able to get our maternity/family pictures today at La Jolla Cove.
I love that we live near the beach this pregnancy so that we could do beach shots.
There are so many great pictures and I'm excited to print them!
More to come!

**Thank you to my best friend Zil for doing this shoot! AH-MAZE-ING!

Twin update 30 weeks

We saw the specialist today and brought the boys with us so that they could see their baby brothers.
Both babies are doing wonderfully. Baby boy A is a whopping 3 lbs 2 ounces and in the 84th percentile for height and weight and baby boy B is even larger at 3 lbs 11 ounces and in the 100th percentile for his growth. WOW!!!
The Dr's were ecstatic with their growth and overall health. Both babies are still head down, so that is amazing also.
Both babies are measuring about a week ahead of schedule, and it's looking like we will be seeing them in about 5-6 weeks (obviously it could be sooner, but we hope it's not)!
I think we will take the rest of our Christmas vacation to finish getting ready for these little guys.
Todays appointment was a great additon to the wonderful Christmas we had.
We are truly blessed!

We are getting so excited!

All is calm, all is bright.

My Dad knows me well. This arrived at my front door last night and I was literally like a kid on Christmas morning opening it.
I have always loved the Willow Tree figurines and knew someday I would have the nativity.
Thank you Dad, for the early Christmas Gift.
I am in love.

I walked out of the bathroom just in time to see Weston fall off of his chair and hit his chin.
He was hurt pretty bad as you can see from all of the bruising.
There was also a nice open cut right where he hit.
We headed to Urgent Care and got it all glued and bandaged up.
He was such a trooper and as the doctor walked out said "I like that guy!"
I'm sure with 4 boys, there will be many trips to the ER. Thank goodness for good insurance.

4 pounds of babies...

Baby B in 3D (profile with fist in front of face)

All is well in babyville.
Our visit with the specialist yesterday went perfect and we are so happy with the progress of our little guys.
Baby B was a lot more photogenic than his brother. At the end of the appointment, the doctor turned on the 3D ultrasound and gave us a few fun pics.
When Ashton got home from school, he looked at the pictures and said "those are real babies now!"
Baby A is weighing 1 lb 13 ounces and Baby B is 1 lb 15 ounces. They both gained 1 lb in 4 weeks which is amazing.
Things are moving along great and there are still no signs of preterm labor. Babies are also measuring a week ahead of schedule. So we should be welcoming them in about 9 or 10 weeks!
It was great to see the doctor and reconfirm that everything was going well.
This last weekend I had a few pretty bad contractions, but thankfully they didn't make any changes to my body.
Keep growing big babies!
