Back and with a secret to share!

Sorry for my absence.  Not only has life been keeping our household very busy, but I finally have a working computer. YAY!  I swear you don't know how much you actually use/need a computer until yours go on the fritz.  I am happy to finally have our old on at least in working order andIi am sporting a new laptop that is soooo fast.  Makes this lady happy to have something to get back to be showing you all what we have been up to lately.

Today I have some fun news that we are ready to share with you all.  We are excited to announce that we are expecting again.  God has truly blessed us.  This is not all of our exciting news ya hooked yet?  Well here is a little back story.  Since I have a history of have early births, especially with my last baby being born at 35 weeks and by emergency c-section, we had to have an early ultra sound to give the doctor an idea to how big the baby is.  In doing this we found out we are not just having one baby but TWO!   Twins.  Double the Trouble.  Double the fun!  Both my husband and I were shocked to say the least.  I think it is finally starting to set in what is going to arrive in the next 7 months.  I am only 8 weeks along but already looking like I am 4 months prego.  So far things have been going well.  Although I have been extremely nauseous and exhausted all the time.  All I want to do is sleep!  Which as any one with kids knows is near impossible.

This past weekend we announced our big news to our families, mainly because I am getting to the point I can't really hide it anymore.  I am pretty sure both sets of parents had no idea what was going on.  I made this little card for them.  I mimic-ed it off of a card that I found here.  I wish I had been quicker with my camera to get their expressions when they opened the card, they were priceless!!!

I also included a basket full of goodies including Double Stuffed Oreos, Twix, Mike & Ike, and Double Mint Gum.  I think it took them a  little while to connect the two, but I thought it was cute.

My first doctor appointment went well.  Babies are growing nicely.  My Doctor was happy with how things were going.  I learned that we are going to be going in for a ton of appointments, already starting at every two weeks.  I am going to be starting on some injections to help prevent preterm labor.  I pray with all this precautionary measures we are taking the babies will stay baking for as long as they are supposed to.  I have always wanted an October baby, so my goal as of now is to make it until October 1st!

Here is what the baby belly looks like at 8 weeks 2 days with twins!  And yes I know I already look four months pregnant...please don't laugh to hard.  :)

This is what has been keeping me 'busy' the last couple of weeks.  Hope you have enjoyed our little bit of excitement.  I will try and keep you posted of how the belly is growing and how the babies are doing as we prepare for our new arrivals.

I do have some projects to share too, so be on the the look out for those and for some new additions to the etsy shop.  

Thanks for reading!  Have a wonderful day!
