Top Ten Things About Carrying Twins
10. Breaking the news!
Making the phone calls to tell everyone we are having another girl...
...and a boy!
That was super fun! No one would believe us!
9. Receiving a ton of prenatal care & pampering from great doctors &
our incredible midwife, Mary.
8. Bi-weekly ultrasounds. We will totally fill a photo album with pics of these kids before they even leave the womb!
7. Lots of love & support from family & friends.
6. Getting to choose a boy name & a girl name! I like Eva Helena for our daughter & Elijah Sherdon for our son. Eva & Eli!!!! Yeah!
5. Feeling twice the kicks, turns, twists, & love jabs. My favorite part of the day is when the twins are dancing the tango,
even if it is usually at 11:30 PM.
4. The 3500 calorie diet I am on! Wow! For the first time in my life, I am actually trying to gain weight and smiling as the scale numbers climb to the sky! Who can complain about being told to eat ice cream everyday??? Not me! Thank goodness I had all of those years of shake making experience at the Little Chick while growing up.
3. Being chastened for doing too much on a daily basis…
...constantly being told to lie down, relax,
put my feet up, & slow down.
2. The look on people’s faces when I answer, “November” to their constant curious question of, “When are you due?”
I know I look like I am ready to pop right there in the produce section, but technically we still have 5-9 weeks left in this journey!
We are SO blessed!
I can’t wait for the upcoming day when I can meet them face-to-face!
Love, Mom

How cute is that? Your children - all of them - are lucky!

I am a true believer that children know before they take their first breath how their parents - particularly their mother feels about them. A positive attitude makes a big difference in the life of a happy child. I wouldn't be surprised if they come into this world singing Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah.

Good Times!!

You're journaling is great! You're kids will love reading your posts when they are older!
I love your names that you have chosen! Thanks for sharing!
I can't wait to meet Eva and Eli! I hope Eli is a gentleman and lets Eva go first! I was bron 45 minutes before Brent...:)
