Drive-in and Monkey Joes

19 August 2014

Last weekend we went to a drive-in theater and saw Ninja Turtles!

The theater was far away, but it was worth the drive.  It was such a cheap date night- $6 per ticket (kids are free) and we didn't need a baby-sitter. Kyler didn't watch the movie, he just played games/watched Netflix on my phone.

The drive-in will definitely be on our Summer Bucket List again next year!

Last Saturday, we took Kyler to Monkey Joes for the first time.  I was only partially impressed, but it was super busy with multiple birthday parties going on, so maybe we'll try it again on a weekday morning.

Kyler had a lot of fun, and definitely got tired out!

Slacker Blog Updater and Random Happenings

11 August 2014

It seems like time has been going by extra fast this past month. I've been horrible at taking pictures lately, but here are a few off of my phone to remember the past few weeks by:
1. Awkward sleeping position. 2. Kyler's first talk in primary. 3 &4. Discovery place kids. 5. Interesting restaurants my pregnancy cravings have been taking us on Saturday nights.

Last week we made our first few purchases for the twins. Charlotte's Mom's of Multiples Club had their consignment sale last weekend...and they had some really good deals.
The Chicco double stroller was given to us by a neighbor- sweet right?!
Getting all of these baby things ready sure has made this seem more real--- our twins will be here before we know it! We're feeling so blessed and happy!

My iPhone's memory was getting low because I had too many random video clips stored.... so I mushed them all together in a video to remember them by:

A journey... 16-20 weeks (movement and anatomy scan)

02 August 2014

I'm going to copy and paste a few entries from the past several weeks of my pregnancy. If you'd like to read more about our journey towards expanding our family, you can do so here.

Last week, we moved Kyler into his new room. We're going to use his old room for the twins because it is bigger and can comfortably fit two cribs, a changing table, a book shelf and a rocking chair in it. Kyler was so excited when we moved his bed into his new room!

Other than that, we haven't done much of anything to prepare for the twins. I'll probably start buying things and decorating the nursery once I'm done teaching pre-K (which is in a few weeks!). I've been having fun filling my Pinterest boards with cute nursery decor ideas!

(I wish everything I pin could magically appear in real life!)

I'm a little behind on the updates! I'm currently 19 weeks and 3 days pregnant! We had our anatomy scan last week, and everything went perfectly! I was so amazed at how much technology has advanced since my last anatomy scan with Kyler 4 years ago. I feel like this anatomy scan had so many more details. It was an incredible feeling to hear/see that everything is developing normally, and such a huge stress relief! 

Baby A (our boy) measured 18w5 days (I was only 18w1day at the time) and Baby B (our girl) measured 19 weeks. For height baby brother was in the 91st percentile and baby sister was in the 100th percentile.  She said those percentiles should come down in the weeks to come, because twins are generally smaller than singletons- so we'll see!

Also, I learned something new! If I have a VBAC, baby A (our boy) will be born first, but if I have another c-section baby B (our girl) will be born first. There are several factors that will determine whether I will have a VBAC or repeat Csection- but I'll get into that another day.

I realized I hadn't taken a bump picture in a while, so I had Kyler take one for me (that's why it's blurry)
just over 19 weeks with twins
I love feeling their little kicks! Baby girl is on the top right side of my belly, and Baby boy is on the bottom left side of my belly- so I can still distinct which baby is moving/kicking. Jared can feel them kick from the outside now too- so fun!
