24 Weeks

image    24 WEEKS!


Well, we made it to 24 Weeks! You can see that my small pooch has definitely expanded! I actually found out that the risk goes down at 28 weeks so we have about 4 more weeks, but neither one of my doctors seem concerned. They both feel that everything is going really well and the babies are doing great!  When I went to my doctor in Cottonwood he said that if I can make it to 36 weeks, which is the day after Christmas, that I can deliver in Cottonwood instead of having to drive down to Phoenix. He actually thinks that I will make it to 37 or 38 weeks!!! Everything is going really good. I am of course still exhausted! It’s getting a little harder to sleep at night; and besides the usual bathroom trips I have also had a cold/cough this week that has been waking me up. It has been a long week!!! I am looking forward to the 4 day weekend coming up! :)

The teachers at the school will be having a baby shower for us on Oct. 18th and my family will be having a baby shower on Nov. 24th! I am so grateful to have such great family and friends who will welcome these boys into our lives! It’s so exciting to share this experience with so many people. After the showers I plan on washing clothes, organizing,  and getting everything else ready for the boys. They will be here before we know it!!!

The boys just continue to grow! At  my last appointment the boys were 1 lb 5 oz and 1 lb 8 oz! They are right on schedule for growth. Every time we go they gain weight and look more and more like our boys!The doctor said if I make it to 37/38 weeks that they will each be around 6 1/2 to 7 lbs!!! I was thinking that they would be smaller than that considering my girls were only 7 lb 3 oz, but I am just hoping for two healthy boys!



Vicki has been very busy getting all of the bedding for the nursery done. She started with the curtains and then moved on to the crib skirts and bumpers. I found some cheap bumpers at Savers and she took off all of the old material and recovered them! They are so cute! After those were done she had the daunting task of creating and quilting the comforters. They turned out so adorable! I love the colors we picked out and everything turned out so much better than anything store bought and they are even personalized! One quilt has a K for Kaden and the other has a M for Mason. It will be something that they can keep and cherish. She has spent so many hours on doing this for us… she is so talented!

I don’t have it pictured here yet cause I am not done with it but I found white baskets at Hobby Lobby for the changing table shelves and I will put a ribbon with the Chevron pattern, which is the sheet and back of the comforter pattern, around the tops so it coordinates with everything else. Vicki will also be making some changing table covers out of the materials we picked for the bedding. Oh…and wall hangings with little monsters! I will post both of those when they are finished.
