I was really going to try to start blogging again, but I wanted to see if anyone would even read it.  If you still check this leave me a comment so I know there's someone out there.  Haha!!  I know it's been a LONG time so this blog may just be lost in cyberspace.  :)

Family Fun Day (and 16 weeks)

First of all, Haylee was super excited to get her first haircut!  She has been asking us for a long time to get it done.  She loves to go with her Daddy when he gets his cut and I think she secretly thought if she got it cut she wouldn't have to wash it anymore.  The kid would take 10 baths a day if we let her, but she hates washing her hair.  (She doesn't like water getting in her eyes.)  She did great!!

Here I am at 16 weeks, growing right along!
Wednesday Daddy was off from work so we had an awesome family day.  We took Haylee to the pumpkin patch at our church for her annual pictures.  We also picked out some pumpkins to take home.

Haylee wanted to paint her pumpkin so we decided that was a great idea.  It was much easier and faster than carving!
Then, Haylee helped Mommy make pumpkin cookies.  She loves to help bake!

After the cookies were done, we all snuggled on the couch and watched movies.  It was a great day and we are so excited to have Daddy home with us more now!

14 Weeks (a week behind)

Today marks 15 weeks!  I am feeling good for the most part.  The only "problem" I've really had is with my blood sugar level.  It's only happened a couple times, usually in the morning, but if I don't eat a good breakfast my levels dip.  Apparently a "good" breakfast is one meant for a trucker.  I feel like I'm eating all the time, but the doctor said that two babies can use up a lot of calories without me even realizing it.  I'm adjusting to it and try to always have snacks on hand.  I go back to the doctor Oct. 25 so we are looking forward to that!  I will post my 14 week pic from last week.  Hope everyone had a great weekend!!

Hakuna Matata

We made it to 12 weeks!  I'm so excited to be almost done with the first trimester!

Brad is loving his new job.  He happened to be off yesterday (Monday) so we took Haylee to see my favorite movie, Lion King.  She loves watching it at home so I knew she would enjoy the theater.  This was her first time at the movie theater and she did awesome!  I was so proud of her.  (The flash startled her every time I tried to take a picture so it's a little blurry.) 
I went to the doctor today because my nauseau seems to be getting worse.  She gave me some medicine to help so hopefully it works.  She had a hard time picking up 2 hearbeats with the doppler so I got a "free" sonogram.  The babies are snuggling right next to each other.  She said "No wonder I was having a hard time...they are right on top of each other".  Aww...sibling love already.  :)  They both looked great though.  I go back for my regular appointment next Tuesday.

Looking Good!

I don't have time for a big update right now, but we had a sonogram with the maternal-fetal doctor today and both babies look great!!  They gave me a DVD to take home which was awesome because Brad got to see it.  I don't think I can put it on here so if you want to see it stop on by, we'll pop some popcorn and watch the babies on their first home video!  :)

September already?!

Time sure does fly!  I can't believe it's September already.  I must say I'm super excited though.  Fall is my FAVORITE!!  I love the weather, colors, decorations, food, holidays, etc.  I can't wait to put up my fall decorations and have all the windows open, while cooking and baking, friends over to watch football.  I love it!!  On with the real "news".  :) 

Brad finally got a new job!!  I am so proud of him for keeping his chin up and his determination going.  We are looking forward to saying GOOD-BYE to Wal-Mart.  His new job is with Dr Pepper and he will be a vendor.  He is very excited to be starting a new chapter.  Haylee picked up balloons for her Daddy the day we found out the great news!

 Other news, we made it to 10 weeks!  As fas as we know everything is great.  I switched over from the fertility clinic to my regular doctor so I'm "normal" now.  Ok, maybe I will never be "normal" but it's good news.  My doctor wants me to see the maternal fetal specialist as well since it's twins.  I have an appointment with him Tuesday, September 13.  I will have more of an update then! 
 Haylee is doing great!  She started preschool last week at my childhood church, Trinity UMC.  It's the same preschool I graduated from!  She loves it and has so much fun playing with other children.  She talks about her teachers and friends all the time.  When I picked her up today she was so excited to tell me, "We got to play outside on the playground today!!"  The weather was cool enough for them to make it outside for recess and she loved every minute!
 She is so much fun to be around and truly a ray of sunshine.  She makes us laugh all the time and comes up with the greatest stories!  We just can't imagine our lives without her!  Tonight before dinner she said "We have to pray first mommy".  I said "You're right baby, go ahead".  Here was her prayer: "Dear God, thank you for our food, thank you for going to church, thank you for daddy going to work, Amen." Thank you God for Haylee!!!

We went back to the doctor this morning and both babies look great! We heard heartbeats again and the doctor said everything (and everyone) was measuring right on target. Our next appointment is Thursday, August 25!
