Week 19 and They Are...

Boys!  Ryan will be having 2 brothers.

After a lengthy scan today, we found out that both boys are healthy with all of their digits and developing right on track.  Baby A currently weighs 10 ounces and Baby B weighs 11 ounces.  Mommy will now go back every few weeks to check their growth.

Party Fun

Alexandria - Ryan's best buddy, Dominic turned 3 and Ryan celebrated his birthday at the same place Ryan had his party.  On Friday night the kids ran and played and ate pizza and cupcakes until they were exhausted.  Ryan came home and crashed.

Taco Night

Woodbridge - One of Ryan's new favorite meals is tacos.  He loves to fold his tacos and eats like a pro.  Good thing this is an easy meal that everyone loves.

18 Weeks

Here is Mommy at 18 weeks with the twins.  Things looked good at the doctor last week and Mommy only gained 1 pound in 4 weeks.  Mommy also had to take her glucose test to see if she has early onset of gestational diabetes, like she had with Ryan.

One week to go until we find out if Ryan will have brothers or sisters.

Dinner With Fred

Woodbridge - As with any 3 year old, Ryan often makes strange requests.  Tonight he decided that Fred the bear needed to join us for dinner.  We had yummy pizza noodles and Fred had to have his own bowl, fork and napkin.  It was a good thing Fred licked his bowl clean.

After dinner, Ryan took Fred upstairs for a hug (or tackle) goodnight.


Woodbridge - Ryan's favorite show is now Chuggington.  Daddy records it for him and he watches it almost every night before bed.  He knows the name of every chugger and even some of their sayings.  Mommy and Daddy have bought him a few of the chuggers to play with.  He spends a lot of time at home playing chuggers.

Big Boy Bed

Woodbridge - Ryan decided that he wanted one of the babies to have his baby bed and it was time for him to have a big boy bed.  On Saturday we went to Ikea to pick it up.  We had picked it out a while ago, but now it was time to bring it home.

After nap time, Ryan grabbed his Handy Manny toolbox and put on his tool belt to help Daddy assemble his bed.  He started off as a good helper, handing Daddy screws and pieces.  He soon became bored and left to watch TV.  After quite a long project, Ryan was ready to spend his first night in his very own big boy bed with his new Thomas sheets that he picked out in Target.  He climbed in his bed, layed down and spent the whole night in bed.  He stilled called for Mommy in the morning and had to be reminded that he could get out of bed on his own.  He even took his first nap in the bed on Sunday afternoon.

Big Brother

Ryan is going to be a big brother!  Mommy is due with twins on July 23rd.  The doctors will not let Mommy go past July 9th, so we are expecting the babies (hopefully) in early July.

So far Ryan is excited about being a big brother.  He is giving up his baby bed for one of the babies.  He also knows the changing table and rocking chair are moving out of his room. 

Here is a picture of Mommy at 15 weeks.
