And Then There Were Two . . .

Baby A (who was quite photogenic)

AND Baby B (who wouldn't hold still)

Yep, that's right folks we are having TWINS! My first doctors appointment was yesterday and we got to see these little sweet hearts for the first time. They are both growing well and have strong heart beats. We are so excited! They are both on target for my November 10th due date; however, they may come a little early. So, we'll see. Here's some pics of them together:

Overall, I've been feeling pretty good. Although, I have good days and bad days. I still struggle with morning/evening sickness, but I consider myself blessed as I have yet to throw up. I dry heaved one morning, but thankfully there was nothing in my stomach to come up (I HATE throwing up). My only major complaint is that I am EXHAUSTED. My energy levels are non existant and thanks to my sweet, amazing husband, I get to just relax when I come home from work. I'm so lucky to have him. I guess it isn't easy on a body to grow two little babies and everything that they need. All I can say is that I'm looking forward to the infamous 2nd Trimester and dreading the 3rd when this 5 foot nothing body of mine is housing nearly full grown twins! It will definitely be a sight to see.

On another note, we feel so blessed to be given such an opportunity. Two sweet little babies that the Lord has entrusted to our care. I only hope that we are up to the task of raising them. I already love them so much and I can't wait to hold them in my arms.
