Oh boy! It's been a little while since my last post and a lot has happened! We have been very busy getting ready for our boys to get here. Lots of painting, shopping, and putting things together! The nursery is almost done! Wooo hoo! I just need to get the bedding, finish some letters for the ABC wall, and organize! I would have to say the biggest thing that has changed is my body! Oh heavens! The belly is getting bigger and bigger everyday... the simple things in life aren't so simple anymore. For example... putting on my shoes, getting out of bed, walking up stairs, and my very favorite... shaving my legs! I am doing pretty good so far though, haven't gained too much weight, my Dr. told me on Friday that I look fantastic! I like her a lot ;)
I have realized in the last 23 weeks that I am surrounded by the most amazing people. My family and friends have been more than loving and supportive. One of the things I am most excited for is my baby shower! My wonderful friend Brittney, incredible sister Lex, and loving momma are putting it together for me. We originally planned for the shower to be in Mid April, but a very last minute change was made when I found out Justin's sister, aunt, and cousin would be visiting March 20-25. Ashlee lives in Utah and we don't get to see her as much as we would like. His Aunt Sue and Cousin Morgan live in Colorado and we haven't seen them for almost 4 years. I knew it might be a long shot when I asked my amazing party planners if we could move the shower up almost a month, but I was so wrong. Without any complaining they went to work and my shower will now be March 24 :) I could not be more happy or appreciative that they were willing to make that change for me. They are keeping most of their plans secret but what I do know sounds so amazing and I can't wait!!
Another super fun thing that has happened is we got a new car! Woo! I have been saying for quite sometime now that I wanted to get a bigger car when we decided to have a baby. Well that happened a little quicker than we thought it would (we planned on a few months or trying... not a few weeks) so we decided we would wait a little on a new car. That plan was just fine when we thought we would only be transporting one baby. Now that we have two bundles of joy on the way we made an executive decision that a bigger car would be much nicer! I am so happy with our decision and LOVE my new Dodge Journey!!! I named her Aynsley.
So many things are changing for us right now and we are doing our best to stay calm and grounded. This whole experience has brought us so much closer as a couple. I could not have been blessed with a more amazing husband. He loves me and our boys so much and shows me that in everything that he does.
