what we've been up to

after the fashion of a very funny blog i recently came across (thank you lauren), here are some of the things we've been up to lately.

we love feeling the babies move and wiggle:

pre-washing all the clothes the babies will be wearing:

studying our butts off (him for school, me for how the heck i'm going to do this! dallin doesn't have to study for that, we know he'll be an awesome dad!) :

in addition to all of this

i am: trying to get the girls room finished (so it looks like a baby room and not like a baby bomb exploded inside the spare bedroom) taking naps, taking baths to get the weight off my ever increasing middle section, doing regular laundry, trying to keep the apartment clean (who knew 2 people could be so messy! i'm in trouble once the babes come...), enjoying my time off of work, and wishing the babies would get here soon, etc.

dallin is: studying his tush off in school and getting good grades, observing teachers at granger high school for his education classes (and helping a little in the spanish class), trying desperately to get some sleep (which is pretty difficult these days because i can't get comfortable and he wakes up every time i move), working every night, being my awesome best friend, being an awesome husband, telling me he loves me, and wishing the babies would get her soon, etc.

34 weeks

dear baby b-

your sister (baby a) has been head down this whole time. none of this flipping back and forth business. i would sleep better at night if i knew i could count on you to stay head down this time! you're causing me anxiety!
thanks love. you're a peach!
love, mom
p.s. see you soon!

let me explain:

up until the end of august, both of these little kiddos were vertex (head down). after a little trip to the hospital one saturday night, we found out that baby b (the one on my right side) had flipped and was now head up. this makes the delivery options a little more complicated, but we weren't worried. we know we are in good hands at the IMC where we will be delivering. well, all month baby b has been breech. when we went to the doctor last friday this was still the case.

when i went to have my non-stress test this morning, i found out that baby b has flipped yet again and is now head down again! haha, she is quite the little mover! i'm hoping she decides to stay where she is this time though because if she does, it makes the delivery less complicated and a c-section is less likely to be needed.

however, if she is still able to turn herself around at this point in the game, who's to say she won't do it again! i think we know which twin will be the one that just does her own thing no matter what, huh?

so join with me in this chant: "stay baby, Stay Baby, STAY BABY!"

labor day 2010

well for labor day this year, dal and i both had the day off from work and school so we decided to go to the zoo. dal has been begging to go all summer and we have just had such crazy schedules that we haven't had a chance before now. i was worried that i would get really worn out from all the walking around, but armed with lots of water, i did just fine! i'm pretty sure we were the only people there though without kids (kind of like our trip to the aquarium last year, haha)

we can't wait for this time next year when we can take our girls to the zoo! we know they'll love it as much as we do!
