update on babies

I had a doctors appointment a few days ago and everything looks good. Somehow each baby gained a pound. One is 3.4 lbs and the other is 3.1 lbs. What I don't understand is how I only gained a pound, yet they gained 2? Someone told me my body must be working extra hard to keep these two alive and growing, and I probably worked it off. People have been very nice and complimentary about how I look, which I appreciate. But seriously I don't know how the babies are going to get any bigger in my body. The doctor measured my belly and it's almost the same as when I delivered Claire, yet I still need to make it at least 6 more weeks!!!! I've been lucky not to be on bed rest, but it's getting to the point where I basically am. I'm having to take people up on their offers to watch my kids. I keep thinking I can do it, but by the end of the night I have serious contractions. We're talking 2-5 minutes apart. So the less I'm on my feet the better, I guess.

Goodbye Mullet

I couldn't stand looking at Claire's mullet for one more second. I loved the curls in the back but, as someone so nicely told me it was looking like a black mans "jerry curl". Plus her bangs were totally in her eyes and she could never see. It didn't help that she always takes out the clips that I put in. So I decided to take her for a hair cut.
She freaked out, as you can see from the picture. But with a little candy and talking from Bella she was fine.
I can't say I totally love the end result. It seems a little too short in the back. But I'm so happy to have the mullet gone that I don't care. Seth on the other hand is totally upset. He LOVED the mullet. I think it's because he's sad he can't grow one and was living his fantasy out in her.

Happy Anniversary

As Seth looked at my huge stomach this morning he said "I can't believe it's only been 3 years." I second that thought. I mean if someone had said to me 3 years ago that we would have 3 kids plus Bella in 3 years I would have said, you have the wrong girl. That's not how I roll. Well, I guess it is how I roll.
I knew I married the right person when Scott told my parents "Seth was put on this earth to be a dad". He has always been a great dad to Bella and Claire and I know it will be no different when the twins come. He's had to be not only a husband during this pregnancy but also, maid, housekeeper, gardener, chef, and dad. He's done it all with a great attitude.

I love you!!!

Just a typical day for Claire

A typical day for Claire includes getting into everything and not staying still for one minute. I was fast enough this morning to snap a few pictures before church. (I've learned not to do her hair until we're in the car or she'll take it out).
First she climbed on top of the toilet, then went to the other bathroom and climbed into the bath tub, and last decided to take all of her toys out of their baskets. This all happened within 5 minutes. All I could think was I'm so thankful she's old enough to go to nursery. (Good luck Jenny).
If the twins come out like Bella I'll be ok, but if they come out like Claire I don't know how I'm going to do it.

I may be the only one who thinks this

I've been wanting to say something about this for awhile and I haven't. Mostly because I didn't want to offend anyone. But I can't take it any more.
Am I the only one who remembers that Michael Jackson was weird? Here's just a few examples: Never land Ranch, Accusations of sexual abuse against boys (and paying millions to settle), The Martin Bashir interview, Changing his skin color, Taking his new born baby home from the hospital with the placenta all over and leaving the mom (he told that story in his own words), Dangling his baby over a hotel room balcony, his chimpanzee Bubbles that he carried around and dressed like himself. I know there's more but you get the point.
Don't get me wrong I agree he was talented and in his early days accomplished a lot.
But seriously, if I see one more crazy person crying over his death I might scream. After all he's just a celebrity. His job was to perform and he did a good job.
I think it's fair to remember the good things about someone when they pass away, but I feel like everything I'm seeing or reading is making him into some sort of God, like he was perfect. And I've yet to meet any perfect person, especially him.
Sorry to be so negative. First my post about snails and now MJ.
On a positive note I did have an ultra sound today and I took Jan, Laura and Sharla. It was awesome to see that everything is going great and the babies are doing fine. Plus it was nice to have Jan and my sisters there and enjoy lunch at The Cheesecake factory.

Fun Day

I had an ultra sound this morning and took Jan, Laura & Sharla. It was so fun to have them all there with me. It was also good because they asked a lot of questions I would never have thought of. After the ultra sound we went to the mall and then to lunch. It was nice to have a get away and know the kids were safe at home with grandpa. I feel lucky to have such a great family!
