We're having a pool party for Kora. so we'll see how that goes!
HI!! I know, I can't believe it either! Why do they grow up so quickly?! Is Kora walking yet?! Please post a recent pic of hers; I would love to see what she looks like now.

We're just having a pool party for him too with our parents/close friends. We didn't really want to have a gigantic 1st bday (which the grandparents weren't too happy about) because if we invite both sides of our family that would make it way too big. Maybe next year we'll have the big party, but this year will be low key.

Wow. I suck ass. Not only did I never update the birth of my son but I just totally never checked in for 6 months. I’m subscribing to this thread so I never let that happen again. Sorry!

 

Margie just seeing your nursery bedding. Really cute. How is your 4yo with Shayne?

 

Mrs Martin Matthew is so darn cute. Cant believe he’s almost 1 already. And holly crap just saw your ticker and your prego again. Congratulations!!!

 

Congratulations to all the new mommies and the new pregos!

 

Kayte congratulations on having twins! Very exciting! Boys are fun too and love their mamas.

 

Jo read your post about going back to work after the baby. I second Andrea’s “people need to shut the f up”. Some people think they need to give you an opinion on everything and how you raise your child is none of their business. I work and like trish said, I think its better for me and my son’s relationship. I’m a better mom for it and I do think he gets a lot from being at daycare. Some people are terrific stay at home moms but I wasn’t one of them.

 

Shea I love Mya. I like how Jada and Mya sound together. Are you going to wait till she’s born this way you can see what name feels right?

 

Update on me. Gavin was born on Feb 28th. I ended up having to get a csection which sucked but I didn’t have a choice. But it all ended up being worth it. I love Gavin to bits. He has the greatest smile and is developing his own little personality already.

 

These are some of his newborn pics from when he was 2 weeks old. There are others on this site under newborns, then under Gavin on http://emiliagracephoto.com/

Yes, I'm preggo again :) It's way different this time around but I'm trying to enjoy my pregnancy as much as I can.

 

Good hearing from you!

Hi Danielle! Wow, reading your post maybe me wonder how long its been since I was on here, answer is 4 months, wow the time flies. Gavin is adorable, and pretty close to being birthday buddies with my Shayne. My oldest, Aidan, has really taken to being a big brother. It took a while to grow on him, at first he wanted nothing to do with Shayne but he came around. Now its all hugs and kisses all the time, he even hugged the baby one day and said "You're the love of my life Shayne" I thought that was just too cute. He's already asking when he is going to have a baby sister. We aren't really trying but we're not NOT trying so who knows.

Shayne is growing SOOO fast, I can't believe it and lately he just seems bound and determined to crawl. He is just an angel. He started sleeping through the night at 3 weeks old and he is just always happy and pleasant, O couldn't ask for a better baby.

Here are a few pics:

This is his nursery:

And these next few are his monthly "birthday" pictures, I didn't do the month stickers, his nickname is monkey so I put him in an outfit with a monkey on it and take his pic with his monkey (for size comparison)

Woah! I've been MIA for awhile I guess!

 

Quickie update: Almost 27 weeks now. The boys are doing just fine. Getting monthly growth scans to make sure both are growing at the same rate. So far, so good. Baby A = 2lbs 3oz and Baby B = 2lbs 4oz. I can't believe I've got almost 5lbs of baby in there and I'm nowhere near delivery!

 

My OB says if we all make it to 38 weeks then we'll start talking induction. I'll likely be begging for it by then. I'm feeling pretty good all things considered, just HUGE. As of last week I was measuring 10 weeks ahead (typical for twins) so 36-37 weeks. I'm finished work on Friday and going on short-term disability until the twins are born, then I'll take my full maternity leave until the following October 2011. So glad to be done work for an entire year. I have a feeling I'll be even more busy though!!

 

We move into our new house next Tuesday as well! As if we didn't already have enough going on! So I'll be busy packing and unpacking for the next few weeks and trying to set up the nursery! PHEW! Time's flying by now!

 

Anyhow, hope everyone is doing/feeling great and having an awesome summer!

Andrea -- will def post nursery pics when we've got everything set up! I can't wait to move and get things unpacked and get the kids' room set up. The chaos of the move is driving me crazy.

 

Went to a wedding last night, so I actually had to get dressed up in something other than yoga pants and one of DH's giant tshirts. Here's me at 27w1d!

Please excuse the dog food bowls and the bathroom as my backdrop!
