So Pretty!!

Tori got several dress up sets for her birthday and she LOVES them!  Its so cute, she loves the dresses, jewlery, and shoes especially.  She loves to get all dolled up and let me take pictures.  She runs all over saying "Tori so pretty!!"  She's going to be trouble some day but for now its so cute!!  My favorite part is watching her try to walk around in little high heels!!   

Hello Second Trimester!!!

Thank goodness the second trimester is here!!  Phew that was a ruff couple of months!  I am sooo lucky that I have never had a bout of morning sickness with Tori or with the twinkies but oh my gosh the fatigue and food aversions sure got to me!  I am now 14 weeks and feeling much better.  I still get tired easily but I have the energy to make dinner and do a little cleaning even after work.  The babies are getting large enough now to cause a few 3rd trimester problems like sciatica and back pain but most days they don't bother me too much.  I can now feel lots of movement!  This is my favorite part of being pregnant!!!  I feel pretty good and I get to enjoy feeling my babies kick, stretch, and roll.  It is rather strange feeling kicks on both sides of my belly at the same time but I love it!  They've even managed to get a few good kicks in already!  Another exciting thing is that we've made our gender determination appointment!  We find out the sexes of the babies September 16th if they cooperate. Just over 3 weeks to wait!  :)  We're so excited to start working on their room and start shopping for those oh so cute newborn clothes!!

I found a good picture to give you an idea of their size, and the picture is even of fraternal twins.  Its hard to believe they're this big already!

Tinkle Tinkle Lil Staaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!

Haha, I love this video so much!!!  We've been working on changing Tori's room to a "big girl room" complete with a full bed.  We both love being able to lay down with her and read some books as a family before bed time.  She loves it too!  Tori decided one particular night that she wasn't tired so she was going to put daddy to bed by reading him "Twinkle Twinkle."  Haha, I think you'll enjoy the interprative dancing and singing as much as we did!!  I'm not sure how "sleepy" daddy was after this but he sure was smiling!!!

Tori's Second Birthday Party

Here are some pictures from our munchkin's Elmo second birthday bash!!!
Tori's birthday present from mommy and daddy was a small inflatable bounce house!!   

Elmo smash cake :)

 We decided to do another pull-string pinata this year since Tori was really too small last year to enjoy it.  She loved it and after the party wanted to pull the rest of the strings :)

She had such a fun day!!  Thank you to everyone who helped make her day so special!!!
