Anna started off her special day with a request of a pancake shaped like a 7. Later on Paul took her and Lainie to a new church building where they were able to put their little handprints in concrete. (I told him to take pictures of the entire day, but of course that was the one that he forgot!) Afterward they went to Winger's for lunch. Ava hasn't been feeling so great the last few days so we opted to stay home. Later on that evening Anna made her cake, and then waited ever so patiently for her Pajama pizza party to start.

I'm 33 weeks today and all is well. This last weeks appointments I measured 39 cm (the largest I've ever measured with any pregnancy is 37) and the babes were just over 4 pounds each. The little stinkers are both breech however. Friday night I had a few hours of frequent contractions, but luckily they went away after a nice hot shower. I'm really hoping to make it to at least 37 weeks.

Our little Lainie Grace turned 5 yesterday. We had pancakes per her request in the morning and after preschool she had a few little friends over for a princess tea party. She spent the entire day ending her sentences with "on my birthday" or "because it's my birthday." For instance, after lunch I heard her tell Ava, "I have to go potty on my birthday." At the end of the day she asked me when she was going to turn 6. I'm pretty sure she loved her special day. Love you Lainie Grace.

Our Valentine's Day was spent with the ladies. We ran errands, went to the library, went out to lunch and then came home to make homemade heart shaped pizzas. The girls enjoyed themselves....and by enjoyed themselves, I mean the kitchen was disasterous when we were finished.

An old picture of the two of us...Dec. 06 if I'm not mistaken. (We both look younger here, maybe because of our fuller faces.) Today is our 9 year anniversary...and I've loved every minute of it. I feel very blessed to share my life with this man.
Happy Birthday to my cute sister-in-law Diedre as well. We stole her special day 9 years ago, but now I will never forget her birthday. I love you D! Hope you had a wonderful 29th birthday!

I've put on 26 pounds, gained a million inches, and am feeling quite large these days...and I still have 10 weeks to go. I've been trying to take it easy but it is relatively hard with 3 at home with no husband all week. My sweetest sister ever, Jen, came to my house last Wednesday to clean and will be coming once a week for now on. (I love it, but I hate it.) Appointments are starting to come once a week and soon will be twice a week. Who knew carrying two would be so challenging. The babes are good though. My last ultrasound was at 28 weeks and they looked great, weighing in at about 2 1/2 pounds each. One of the babies gets the hiccups all the time and the other loves to suck it's fingers. And for all of those who keep asking...no, we still are not going to be finding out the sex of the babies.
