While Visions of Sugar-Plums Danced in their Heads

Visions, oh the visions! Babies everywhere, no sleep, double the dookie diapers, double the feeding...double the first smiles, double the first laughs, double the kisses, double the love :) We can't wait!!

Here we are with the married crew at the Med School Holiday Ball, it was a blast...

And look at fabulous JA and Chris, their love affair continues :) Chris is teaching JA the Shag, unsuccessfully I might add...

Have a great weekend!!!!!!

Put the lime in the coconut

Great news at the ultra sound today! The babies are in their own sacs and doing great!! They are measuring a little bigger then the due date but not enough to change the date. Baby A's heart rate was 155 and Baby's B was 159. They are touching heads and seemed to be dancing on the screen. Here are some pictures...

Life has been crazy over the last week. Our upstairs toilet flooded all the way into the basement. Our house has been a construction zone the past 4 days and will continue to be one. Luckily we have great friends, Matt & Sarah, who let us crash at their place while we were under water. I will post pictures of the water damage soon.

I am off to Massachusetts this evening, Emerson is going to the Bonks for a few days and John-Adam continues to work in geriatrics this week. Can't wait for the holiday to arrive so we can catch our breathe!!

What a Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving weekend was a blast and of course seemed too short. We had a great time at the Grace's celebrating with friends and eating way too much! Just look at that turkey!!

We continued the over eating at the Bonk's where use females lost by a hair at battle of the sexes - stupid face masking. Unfortunately our celebration got cut short with mom & pop because mom was not feeling well. But she is feeling better now!
We unfortunately don't get to see or hear the 'prunes' until next week which seems like an eternity. We have an ultra sound next Tuesday where we see if the twins are sharing a sac. We might be able to see the sex but it is pretty early.

Only 24 days until Christmas!!! :)

You have questions, we got answers :)

Thank you all so much for the wonderful wishes and congrats! We couldn't ask for a better support system! There are a lot of common questions that we are some answers :)

When are we due?
June 30th, but twins usually come two weeks early.

Are we freaking out?
We sure did the first few days. The day we found out we could not even comprehend making dinner, so we went out to eat. When we requested a table for 3, John-Adam said, Holy Sh*t!! We will need a table of 5 pretty soon!

Do twins run our family?

Not mine, however John-Adam's aunt had twins. But there isn't really any evidence that monozygotic (1-egg) twins are genetic.

Are they boys or girls?
Too early to tell, but we will find out this time.
We had an ultrasound yesterday and saw our little olives!! The feeling when seeing them is so great and I wish I could see them everyday :)

Emerson's pouty face - maybe the face he will make when we bring two babies home : )

Surprise - TWINS!!!

We decided to start a blog to allow family and friends a glimpse into our soon to be VERY crazy lives.

We had our scheduled 8 week first ultrasound for our second baby on Nov 12th. Everything was going pretty par for the course, however the tech kept going back and forth between two spots and every time she stopped there was another heart beat. Just as I was about to ask the tech what was going on, she said "Looks like you are having twins!" I immediately assumed it was a joke and even asked her if she was joking. In a calm, cold voice the tech flatly said, "I don't joke about twins."

Some technical info: twins will be identical, they were 8 weeks when we had our ultra sound, way too early to find out the sex (we will find out this time around seeing as it is a different ball game).

Emerson loves babies, but he has no idea! He is such a good little man, he will be the best big brother to these two little ones.

This shall be a crazy ride, if you want to tag along via blogging hope on board the Bonk Train. Our small house will be home to: 2 adults, 2 dogs, 3 cats and 3 babies under the age of 3 -
it will be a ride!!
