It's Two....


I can not even begin to wrap my mind around the idea of having two girls! We are sooooooooooooo stinking excited and thrilled to be finishing our family with two miracle little girls.

So introducing...

Greysen Elizabeth 
Aka: Baby A


Harper (middle name not yet determined) 
AKA: Baby B

Well tomorrow is the big day! We find out (hopefully) what gender the babies are. I am so stinking excited I can hardly wait. I don't care what they are. When I first got pregnant I really never thought I would be able to say that. It was no secret that I want a daughter. But after finding out your are pregnant with naturally conceived twins after years of infertility treatments, I can honestly say I will be happy with whatever God gives us.  I'm just excited to KNOW and start planning. Patience is not my forte.

I have been a really sucky blogger recently. My life is just so crazy and BORING! The boys have been keeping me busy. And while I'm feeling better and have more energy, I'm still in bed by 9 every night.  Holden has really started crawling and even pulling up on stuff. I have no idea how my little boy has gotten so big. Spoken like a true mom, right? London is so well...LONDON. Crazy as ever!

Our life is super boring, yet there is never a dull moment. Maybe I'm just in a blog funk right now. I feel like nothing is "blog worthy". And I'm way too lazy to upload pictures, so even wordless posts are out.

Here are a few fun facts for ya:

1) I'm getting an Iphone next week. It's a huge step for me as I am a complete android fan. However I've had my phone for almost 2 years and Android has yet to come out with anything any better than what I already have. I'm ready for a change and Iphone seems like a HUGE change. Hopefully I don't regret it! I'll miss Flash, and I'm not really a fan of Apple anything, but I want something NEW!

2) I've been reading and ALOT recently. Humm, maybe that is why I haven't been posting. I just finished The Fifty Shades of Grey series. I have to say I really liked it, way more than I expected too. I definitely could have done without a sex scene every 10 pages. I eventually started just skipping through those parts. It was a book in which nothing really happens so I can't even say why I liked it so much, but I did. I read all three in about 4 days and actually when I was done I went back and reread the second one. I hear they are making a movie, and I would like to publicly throw my support behind Ian Somerhalder as Christian (you know in case Hollywood decides to consult my blog before casting.) Who can resist this smolder?

He plays a somewhat similar role bad guy/good guy on CW's Vampire Diaries, and is FABULOUS! 
When I first looked up the movie, he was one of the names that was one of the names being tossed around and now I can't imagine anyone else playing the tortured hottie, Christian Grey. 

3) Ok so now that I'm done reading Fifty Shades, I need book recommendations. I've already read the usual suspects...Hunger Games, Twilight, Mortal Instruments, and Divergent but I need something new. I'm quite fond of young adult and I love a good series. Any suggestions?

That is all from me for now! I will post ASAP tomorrow about the gender of the twins. Now I just have to fall asleep tonight without thinking about it.

NT Scan

As you can tell by the title of this post, I had my NT Scan today. Both babies looked FABULOUS!!! They were kicking each other and doing flips. Pretty typical stuff for our family, so I am sure they will fit in really well around our house. :)

The ultrasound tech was really cranky an refused to take a peak between their legs. It would be just for fun since I definitely wouldn't trust a gender determination at 13 weeks, but she said no. She wasn't my usual lady though, so I didn't argue. At the end of the u/s she said "Well I didn't look between their legs, but I didn't see any penises flying around" HAHA! No worries though, we will be having another ultrasound on May 30th. As long as the babies cooperate we will be finding out their genders then.

A few questions I have gotten in my comments recently....what do I THINK the babies are? 2 boys. Because since I have 2 boys already it's hard to imagine actually adding a girl to this family.

What do we want? 2 healthy babies, but then again EVERYONE wants that. So if I got to choose I would pick, one boy and one girl. My logic...I don't want Holden to ever feel like the lost middle child. Can you even imagine if it's twin girls how he might feel lost in the cute twin baby girl craze. If it's a boy and girl, then Holden and the boy will be more like the twins growing up. IDK, that is just my totally crazy lady ramblings right now.


Here are our BABIES at 13 weeks!!
Baby A
 Baby B

12 weeks Twins!

OMG, it has finally started to sink in that we are going to have twins. Yeah, I know we have had a while to adjust to this news, but with several miscarriages in our past we have tried to distance ourselves a bit from this pregnancy. Well today at my 12 week ultrasound, two adorable BABIES were thrown in my face (in the best possible way!) While watching the ultrasound, I witnessed my babies kicking each other in the head. Baby  B was trying to do a flip (head over feet) and Baby A was letting him/or her have it for disturbing his rest. Finally Baby B was able to flip around and dish it right back out to Baby A. It hit me at that moment, OMG I'M GOING TO HAVE TWINS! This is by far that craziest thing that has ever happened in my life. If I didn't believe in God before, there was no doubt of his existence today while watching my tiny twins first wresting match.

I prayed for these babies...while we were in the throws of infertility. I cried for these babies...each and every cycle that ended with a BFN. I fought for these babies....during both of our IVF cycles while I tried to find the time, money, and energy to add to our family. God just had other plans about WHEN these babies would arrive. He sure is a prankster!

Anyway! It's official, I'm 12 weeks now and have accepted that we are REALLY having twins. It's even Facebook official. :) I made this super cute (if I do say so myself) announcement today!

Oh and check out my new super cute header too! :) Thanks Ashley!
