18.5 weeks

This is the 18.5 week pic

I feel like I am twice this big
and depending on what I wear
on any given day
I might really look twice this big

I have gained
four pounds in three weeks

and I already have to hold my breath
to bend over
to tie my kids shoes.

This week baby center says:
"Head to rump, your baby is about 5 1/2 inches long
(about the length of a bell pepper)
and he weighs almost 7 ounces."

So multiply that
times two
and there you go.

As I post this,
I am one day away from 19 weeks
This week, (Tomorrow)
our friend who is an ultrasound tech
said she would so a quick one
so we can see
boys, girls, or one of each.
(I am putting my money on one of each).

Next week at 20.5 weeks
we see the perinatologist
(high risk preggo doctor)
for the full 20 week ultrasound
then a follow up the following week with my OB.

This twins thing is a lot more work than I thought.

Double the blessings though, right?

(Counting on those blessings in a big way!)

A Picture Takin Girl

Since I have known the girl
(roommates in college in 2001-2002)
She has been taking pictures.

Even before she was famous for it,
she was dang good.

Holly and I convinced her it was time
for a
picture taking reunion

and flew her out from
(God Bless)

Has anything ever been more worth it?
I don't know, its up there near the top.

Good fun, good food,
Fabulous picture takin
by the
"Picture Takin Girl"

as my kids call her.

She's a busy mom of three
and wife to one Fabulous Mark,
who is in law school.

And she put it all on hold
to come out
and capture us.

She did an amazing job.

We already scheduled our next session
for May
so that the new additions will get some
picture lovin
by the picture takin girl too.

Can't wait!

Check out her blog
you will be amazed.

I need this

little lovely

was on a new blog friend
Sophia's Blog


I want it,
but I want it so bad,
that it is approaching need.

I laughed and laughed
read it again
and laughed some more

I think
most mom's could save the world
given the right incentive

for example
a screaming child in the middle of a store,
just the right amount of head tilt
and a darling "pease mom, pease"

It would look darling in my kitchen.
Just darling.
