This pregnancy is flying by. I am getting more and more excited each day and getting huge. With twins I feel like you kind of skip the "awesome" second trimester as you are huge almost instantly. I am already waddling when I walk and I feel like my belly is bigger everyday. It's so fun to hear what everyone thinks they are. I love not knowing what they are as well, just makes the surprise even more fun. If you would like to tell me what you think they are I would be interested seems its very heavy for one of the three possibilities. My husband is amazing and has been doing a tremendous amount for us. When I get home from work I am completely exhausted he has been cleaning, cooking, and treating me amazing (he always does this but he is super patient), our kids have been really good too. I am excited for these two amazing personalities inside me to join our family but I would really like them to wait until August :) Here is a treat of me at 21 weeks 1 day and I am huge!!!

Here are my two little pumpkins growing away :) Evident in my ever growing belly. We went in for our big ultrasound and so far so good. Everything was growing like it should be, both babies were moving and even waved to us. We didn't find out what they were because we are waiting until they are here. I knew the tech knew though I could tell. Being pregnant with twins is definitely different than with one. Its almost non-comparable. I am a very energetic person and I have no energy, usually for me at least I have gotten it back in the second trimester but this go round not so much and you get BIG FAST! I am even bigger now than in this picture. I was counting my calories for so long to stay under and this week I have started counting them to make sure I am eating enough it is a crazy phenomenon. Its the most amazing thing having two babies in you and knowing how much I love my other two I can't even imagine how it will feel to have all four of them. I am already so in love with my twiners. Baby A is my active baby and every appointment I go to it is moving around like crazy. Baby B is my chill leave me alone I am sleeping baby every appointment. My house is a mess, nothing is getting done because after work I am exhausted, I miss running and playing soccer, but I have never been so happy in my life. I am so lucky to have Kade helping me. I don't know what I would do without him. Can't wait to meet you twiners we are half way there, I am now 19.5 weeks.

My babies are beautiful!
We took the kids to Disney on Ice and it was so much fun! I went to Disney on Ice growing up and have always loved it. Its a lot cheaper than Disneyland and that's not in the budget right now so this was a good fix:) It was the princess show but Brooks loved it too. He likes the princesses as well since his sister is Mia! We had a lot of fun as a family and they enjoyed the popcorn too!

Brooks I can't believe you are 3 years old. What a joy you are in our lives. I can't imagine your darling little personality and smile not part of my every day. You LOVE cars, planes, fruits, and veggies. You are determined to play with Lightning most days and you light up when you find him in a room. You are such a sweet brother and love your sister so much and worry about her when she is not around. You are excited for the babies and "kiss" them all the time. You adore your daddy and think he is the best thing that ever happened. Luckily for me you love me so much and snuggle me and run to me whenever I come to pick you up. We are so happy to have you in our lives, you make everyone around you smile, it is quite a talent you have. We love you so much.
This was his idea of a pose. Funny boy.
Looking at mom.
His fake smile but I love it!
There is a real Brooksie smile.
Laughing at me and Amy.
Please mom no more.
This is his funny face and he loves to pull it.
He was being a monster.
He has grown so much. What a privilege it is being his mother.
I am so blessed everyday to have him in my life.

My husband got his dream surgery last month and is super happy about it. This was right after and he had to sleep in those for a week. I got to watch the surgery it was pretty crazy but amazing that it can work. He has never been happier :) (Now I can't wait for my dream surgery!!!!)
I love holidays! They are so much fun. Mia got to go to school on Valentines day she was very excited. My mom bought her this outfit to wear and I did her hair in a heart. She had a great party and loved her day. Kade decorated my office complete with 100 balloons, flowers, and candy. Brooks had a fun day too and was excited there was excitement in the air. We stayed in that night and hung out with our kids. The next night we went out with Weston and Christa to Chili's and to see That Awkward Moment. We had a great weekend. Love to everyone!
