Well, this post is definitely long overdue ( no pun intended). I notice that it has been almost two months since we wrote anything!!! We sure have been busy! Kiera and I took a trip to WA to see my family...a road trip mind you (2 adults and 3 kids). My sister and I went together and had a fun time driving out there together and the kids did great! It was lots of fun to hang out with the family. Now we have just been busy with church activities and day to day stuff. We included some pictures of Kiera and some of her cousins (who she LOVES hanging out with! ). Ryan was in charge of putting a festival together to kick off the new year and that's why the kids are riding in the train. Kiera could have ridden in that all day. She loved it! Now that all our traveling is done, we are quickly preparing for the twins to arrive. So far everything has been going great and I have had no problems. I am 28 weeks now (7 months), look 9 months, and feel about 13! I included two pictures of me. One is of me 9 months pregnant with Kiera and the other is as up to date of a picture as you can get (today). So, any guesses which is which???? Sadly, the bottom one is of me right now! Quite the difference in size! I no longer fit in any of the clothes I wore with Kiera my ENTIRE pregnancy. The scary thing is that I still have 2 months to go!!!! Where are these babies going to fit??? Maybe I have a hollow leg....I am definitely slowing down and have boycotted cleaning my home or doing anything that involves bending over or getting on the floor. A twin pregnancy definitely takes it out of you! I told Ryan that if I had started with a twin pregnancy, we may not have had any more children. What a difference it makes and a toll it takes on a person! As of my ultrasound today, Baby A weighs 2 lbs. 10 oz and Baby B weighs 2 lbs. 8 oz. People deliver 6 pound babies!!!! Yikes!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are just so thankful that everything is progressing well and it looks as if we should be able to make it to 38 weeks (my doctor won't let me go past that thankfully). We appreciate your continued prayers and will try to update more frequently.
