Update...pictures to follow.

Okay...you kind people who left me a comment have encouraged me to start blogging again! I try to always have pictures with my posts but the scanner is down so they will be 'coming soon'.

Update on babies.....it's 2 BOYS!!! We found out 2 weeks ago (16 wks prego at the time) when we went for an ultrasound with a perinatal specialist. It was one of the the most surreal moments in this whole experience. Even though I am definitely showing, hear the heartbeats and see them on ultrasound, it is still hard to grasp the reality of it all. I still can't believe it happened!! Seriously, sometimes I don't believe it.

So, when the Dr. quietly said "Baby A looks like a boy" I was totally in awe. It all became more real, now they were becoming more real to me. I looked at Joe with the biggest grin and of course he had one to match! Then the Dr. said "Baby B is a boy"..what, 2 boys?! So cool!!! We had hoped for 1 of each but said if it was going to be 2 of the same sex we would prefer 2 boys...so, close enough!

We walked out of that room feeling more like parents. No longer are we saying the twins...it's now the boys! Little boys bringing home bugs, playing sports, getting dirty...we can't wait!! Now I am anxiously waiting to feel them. I am huge and Baby B is in constant motion on the ultrasound but I am not sure I have felt them yet. I felt a little "bump" last night...maybe that was one of my boys!!

We are so happy for you and Joe. I told Wyatt this morning that he was going to have two new friends on the block to play with soon. It will be so much fun to watch them discover everything. Of course, they'll probably be us lots of interesting "gifts"!! Yay!!!

Congratulations! We can't wait to meet your boys...

Hugs,
Laura

Wow! How exciting! That's so great (I'm a tiny bit jealous...I just love boys!). My cousin has twin boys who are 14 now. They think of all kinds of disgusting crazy things to do to each other (peeing into squirt guns and spraying each other...and other equally gross things). I started feeling little lady bug spin around at about 16 weeks. I bet its earlier with twins??

Congratulations! That is so much fun - two boys!!!

I started feeling my girls kick/move around 20 weeks. My husband could feel the kicks on the outside around 22/23 weeks. I LOVED feeling them kick and hiccup. Around 30+ weeks it gets CRAZY - like there is a constant party going on in there! Enjoy this time - it goes so fast. :-(
