27 Weeks

Here we are in the last week of the second trimester.  Mommy is feeling typical aches and pains and shortness of  breath; otherwise things are going well. 

Daddy finished painting their room.  All we need to do is get another crib and get everything in place.  Mommy had a baby shower this weekend and got some nice new clothes and a little gear.

Planting with PeaPooh

Gloucester - Over the weekend, Ryan and Bel Bel helped PeaPooh buy and plant vegetables in the garden.  They picked them out and then helped put them in the ground.  Ryan loved being in the garden and will enjoy the tomatoes as soon as they are ripe.

26 Weeks

Mommy and Daddy are moving right along in getting ready for the twins.  We found the carseats fit in one car, but not the other.  The closets are now cleaned out, Daddy has moved out of the closet in the twins room and into the master bedroom.  We even have three large bags of clothes to get rid of.

This week we will paint and get the rest of the non-baby stuff out of the room.  In just a short time period everything will be done.


Today, Monday April 16, 2012, was a big day for Ryan...he finally pooped in the potty!  Anyone who knows the struggle we have been through to get this far would understand how big of a deal this is.  We are all terribly excited.  Ryan finally earned his reward that we have promised from the beginning, aka Wilson's suitcase.  It is a carrying case for all his chuggers.

25 Weeks and Before Pics

Here we are at 25 weeks.  Things seem to be going well, with the exception of back pain.  Mommy can't lay down too long with her back hurting a bit.  The boys are active and still making sure Mommy knows that they are there.

Mommy and Daddy are moving along with the nursery.  Most of the old furniture is out and some of the baby stuff is in.  Here are some before pictures and the color we have picked for the walls.

Happy Easter

Woodbridge - The Easter Bunny came to visit Ryan and brought 3 Easter from Mammy and Peapooh, one from Grammy and Bumpy and one from the bunny himself.  Ryan struggled to find the baskets hiding spots at first, but after a bit of help from Mommy and Daddy he successfully found all three.  He loved all of his goodies, including Mr. Pricklepants and a new Chuggington game.  He sat down right away to watch Toy Story 3.

Easter Egg Hunt

Woodbridge - Ryan participated in the annual community Easter Egg Hunt.  He moved to a new age group this year (3-5 year olds) and found a small handful of eggs.  He really didn't mind, he just had fun looking.  He brought home a few pieces of candy, some he eat, some he found disgusting.

After the hunt, Mommy and Daddy let him stay awhile to play on the playground.

Wordless Wednesday

24 Weeks

Here we are at 24 weeks with the boys.  Mommy is starting to feel some discomfort with back pain and some difficulty with deep breathing.  Mommy was also put on medication to help control the gestational diabetes.  Hopefully this will be as far as it goes. 

Mommy and Daddy have picked out the color to paint their is called pool party.  We think we are going with a Mickey Mouse theme.  We can't wait to get it all together.  Hopefully in the next few weeks the room will be cleaned out and painted.

Happy Birthday Daddy

Woodbridge - Mommy, Daddy and Ryan celebrated Daddy's birthday on Monday with Jerry's pizza and presents.  Per Ryan's suggestion, it was a Spiderman themed party.  The pizza was delicious and Daddy enjoyed many slices.  Ryan helped Daddy open his presents, but basically opened them all himself.  Thanks to Mammy, Daddy has been enjoying his birthday brownie torte all week.
