A Morning Walk on the Beach

One Morning while we were at the beach Christian decided to get up early so in an effort to let Benjamin and Daddy get a few more minutes of sleep I took my biggest boy out to the beach for a little bit.

It was a beautiful morning

He LOVES the ocean. He looks so small to me in this picture standing out by the BIG ocean
It was early but he didn't have a problem with the water being a little less than warm...
He took off running right into it!
Mommy and her biggest boy- Love this picture of the two of us on the beach!

Beach Part 1~ The water Slides

As soon as we got to the resort the first thing the boys wanted to do was hit the water park and the slides. Here they are getting ready to go!!
 Christian enjoyed the water slides for a little bit....
 However our little Monkey L.O.V.E.D. every water slide and would have rode 100 times a day if we let him. Love this picture...He started out on his back and ended up coming down like this.
Benjamin again
This picture shows you the height of one of the slides
and here come Benjamin again...
If Benjamin was just a little bit taller we would be heading to a water park because this boy is a daredevil and is not afraid to try A.N.Y.T.H.I.N.G. Christian is a little more on the cautious side takes it all in before he decides if its worth the risk or not. =)

24/25 Weeks

Well I dont have anything big to update this week. We are still plugging right along. I really dont like any of the pictures from this week but I decided to post this one for those of you who are interested. I can't believe we are already 25 weeks if we make it to 37/38 weeks we only have 13 weeks left at the most. WOW!! I have alot to get done in the next few weeks. We did start on the nursery this week.  I will post pictures when we are further along- we are painting with blue/sand colors and going with a boat theme. I am super excited and can't wait to get it finished. Next week we have our second glucose test for gestational diabities. I would love to pass it again with flying colors but we shall see. Until next week.....
This week the babies are the size of a rutabaga guess I have two rutabagas in there =)

How far along: 25 weeks!!

Clothes: Still maternity some are getting a bit small

Names: Still thinking about it

Movement: YES somedays it seems like they are moving all day long other days I have to stop and wait for the movements.

Food/Cravings: Not really craving anything....but I still enjoy my pretzels and ranch dip

What I miss: Being able to bend over/squat down and get back up easily

Vacation Part 1~ Tennessee

I am finally starting to post about our least the first part. We started our vacation out with a trip to visit some of our friends in Tennessee Adam and Candace who just had their first baby a little girl in Feb. of this year. Here we are on Friday morning getting ready to head out...the boys are packed in the back and ready to go.

Anagrace was a hit as soon as we walked in the door they boys were ready to hold her

Looking at these pictures make me excited to see all four of our boys together in just a few short months.

To say she was the star of the weekend is to put it lightly
Two peas in a pod...Chrisitan and Adam looking at the menu at Cheddars. We had never been to a Cheddars before but let me let you the food was delicious and the prices were very reasonable.
Feeding the little princess
Playing Adam in Thumbwar
 What else do you do after a big meal at a nice restaurant but go next door to Marble Slab for icecream!
 The breakfast of Champions fixed for the boys by Adam...Poptart Chocolate doughnuts and Powdered doughnuts.
Outside working on the Truck with Daddy and Adam
 In Erwin where Adam and Candace live there is a fish hatchery so Ed and Adam took the boys here they are feeding the fish.
Anyone that knows Adam knows that he is just a big kid looking to get into trouble. Here they are with waterguns trying to cool off.

More love for Anagrace
 The Gang- its really hard to try and take a picture of seven people....we used the automatic setting and aside from all the extra stuff in the picture it tuned out pretty well. We are so glad that we got to spend the weekend with them and look forward to the next time we get together when there will be nine of us!

23 Weeks

Well I didn't make it by the end of the week but Monday's not to bad. We had our appointment with the specialist on Friday and both of the boys looks GREAT!! They were able to get the additional pictures they needed of the each babies heart that they couldn't get the last time due to their position. They said everything looked GREAT and they are both growing well and right on track. Both of the boys were VERY active today and were moving all over the place arms and legs just going to town. They look like they are already so big! Baby Boy A weighed in a 1lb 4oz and Baby Boy B weighed in at 1lb 5oz. Baby A has moved and is head down but that could change B is still transverse (we have time they can still move around at least for now=). I can tell that they changed positions becuase movement has picked up A LOT!! Sometimes I think I can tell the difference between baby A and baby B but not always. Here is my 23 week picture less than attractive but the best one I got...the sun was out and it was HOT.

How far along: 23 weeks

Clothes: Still Maternity

Names: maybe we will share soon =)

Movement: YES daily and now I am able to tell them apart some. Also, this weekend we have been able to watch my belly move when they move or kick. =)

Food/Cravings: I actually ate hamburger for the first time this weekend since right around the time we found out we were pregnant I know my husband has hope that he can now have some big ol burgers this I dont know that I really have any cravings but I have enjoyed a little bit of chocolate pie which typically is not a favorite of mine.

What I miss: Cooler weather!! It feels like we are already in the middle of Summer its HOT! We are spending a lot of time at the pool or inside!

We were on vacation this last week. We had an amazing time at the beach. This picture was taken at Ripleys Aquarium (if you can't tell by the fish that looks like he is about to bite my head We have two appointments this week one with the regular OB and then one with our UNC specialist. I definetly feel like I am growing!

How far along: 22 weeks

Clothes: Still

Names: we have a few

Movement: Yes, daily

Food/Cravings: nothing specific although we were on vacation and I did eat...probably more then I should have....I acutally had dessert and seafood and it was YUMMY!! I am sure the scales will not tip in my favor this week. =)

What I miss: right now the beach
