Second Grade

I meant to write this post a few weeks ago but....hey life got busy!

In order to register the boys for school again this year you could do it electronically and fill out all the forms via the internet.....which made life so easy because it re-populates the standard information for the other child from the first form you fill out....wooohoo score!  Jason and I were up late one night doing it and we were laughing....we couldn't stop thinking about how long it will take to fill out the forms for 5 kids hahaha it will be a full days work!

With that being said.....I admit I had a little cry when we were done.  We now officially have two boys in the second did this happen.  Please time slow down.  I'm sure this year will be a fantastic school year and the boys will thrive with the new lessons, activities, friends etc but geesh slow down little guys.....don't grow to fast...mama isn't ready for it!

How can these two be in second grade?
Crazy side note.....if the new twins are in fact born a few weeks early as we predict they and Josh will only be 1 year apart in when they start Junior Kindergarten back home he will be in Senior Kindergarten.....crazy we will have three kids in kindergarten at the same time!!

Our little Joshua has recently learned the art of being a ham for the camera.....he now proceeds to make the funniest smiles every time you ask him to take a picture while he exclaims...cheese :) 

Our pictures for the next little while will have the scrunched up little nose of his and his eyes squinted but when we look back I hope to remember the happiest grin ever as he proclaims "Cheeeeesssee".

He has also started incorporating his "please" followed closely by a huge smiley "cheese"...which I think is his way of winning us over to get what he wants hahahaha.  Love the little things that pass quickly but you don't ever want to forget!

So to everyone out there.....good morning and cheese :)

Starting to feel real

July 30/14....up until now it has always felt like flutters and little movements here and there.  I find it a lot more stressful carrying twins then a single baby.  When you have one baby and you feel movement you feel re-assured that everything is okay.  The tiny flutters belong to that baby.  When you have two and they are still tiny, I am not able to distinguish who is making the flutters between the two babies.  You feel a movement but aren't sure if it's one baby....both.....did I feel the other baby move today??  Well today was the first time that I actually from the outside... a movement from the babies. My stomach moved out as a leg/foot shape moved.  Finally we are entering into the stage of seeing the movements which will soon be followed by being able to distinguish between the two babies arms/legs......and stress decreases :)

As a little side note from an ultrasound I had last week.....people ask why do twins seem to get along so well??  Well perhaps because they have had to put up with each other from the very beginning.  In the ultrasound picture you can actually see the side profile of one baby who has no where to put their legs so they are resting them on the others ones head!!  For all those medical people who want to know...these babies are in their own sacs and they can still do this!
