23 Weeks!

Time has been flying by and I am now 23 weeks! The babies are growing rapidly and are now the size of grapefruits, it seems like yesterday the were mere lentil beans! I have been feeling them kick a lot and Rhett and my mom have also got to feel them kick! You can see it through my shirt too when I am sitting down, it's crazy to just see my skin get pushed forward, like they are saying, "Hey we're here!"

This past weekend we traveled to Cincinnati for our baby shower, and my mom did a great job putting everything together and my very pregnant cousin, Amanda, who is expecting her 3rd child in April, put together some very fun shower games! It was so nice to see family and friends that we haven't seen in a while! Including my good friend Megan who traveled all the way from Cleveland to be there! We were blessed with many well wishes and generous gifts and were feeling quite lucky this Saint Patrick's Day!

I am headed to the doctor today to check and see how the little ones are going and make sure that I won't need bed rest soon. The goal is obviously to keep them in me as long as possible, so I will be sure to update once I know! Thanks for everyone's love! We are so excited to have shared and continue to share this exciting journey with you!

21 weeks!

This past week was such an exciting one! We had our Chicago baby shower and had such a great time! My sister-in-law Sarah threw it for us, and she did such an amazing job! Everything was adorable and delicious! We felt so blessed to have our family and friends there with us to share in our joy! My friend Christa is a great friend, excellent secret keeper, and the best cake decorator I've ever seen! She made our gender reveal cake for the shower, and it was absolutely adorable! We cut into the cake and revealed to our family and friends that we are having.... a boy and a girl! We are over the moon and think it is just perfect, God truly had a plan for us, and we both agree it was well worth the wait! We are so lucky to have the love and support of family and friends and feel blessed everyday that we lay on the couch at the end of the day and feel the kicks and movements of our little ones, life is good!
