A Few Pictures

We headed to the park today to take a few fall pictures before it got too icky outside and before I get too big to want to have pictures taken.   Tori was very tired but she did great, and said "cheese!" almost every pose we asked her to do.  Thanks Jeff for taking them for us!

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween from Mario and Princess Peach!!

 Tori had a great time trick-or-treating!  Brian would pick her up so she could reach the door bell, she would ring it and say trick-or-treat (which sounded like Chuck-e-Cheese) and then say thank you at each house.  She kept telling us she was having so much fun :)  We took her through a neighbor's haunted house they do in their back yard each year and and loved that too! 
 We ran into a little Mario and he got SO excited to see the "real" Mario and to see Princess Peach.  It was so cute!
We had a fun night and Tori came home with lots of candy.  She's getting so big and each holiday just gets more fun!!

Six Months Down!

Well we've made it to 24 weeks!  It is a little comforting to know that if the twins were born at this point that they would have a chance of surviving but they definitely still have a long way to cook before they're ready.  All three of us are still doing well, no complications yet.  I'm now going to the doctor every other week for closer monitoring and growth scans.  The babies are getting cramped already and we still have at least 10 weeks to go.  William is measuring 1 pound 10 ounces and Elizabeth is 1 pound 8 ounces.  They are still in the same positions, with William low and head down with his feet on the upper right side of my stomach kicking his sister in the head (see sonogram picture).  Lizzi is lying horizontal across the top of my stomach with her head on the right top and her tush on the left top.  Her feet are down by her brother's head kicking him in the head and back.  :)  No wonder I usually feel them both moving at the same time....they're waking eachother up each time.

Sonogram picture is Liam's leg on top and Lizzi's head.  You can see how thin the membrane is between them, its the thin white line under his leg.

24 Week Belly....getting big!!

I love these pictures :)  Here's a drawing of fraternal twins at 24 weeks.  Look at how big those babies are!  This pregnancy is going so fast, I can't believe we only have a few months left!
