Weekend Away

This past weekend the girls had Friday off so we decided to head up Charlotee, NC for the weekend..We figured it would probably be our last time to get away for a long time!!! So we went to Great Wolf Lodge..We all had a great time..They had a great indoor waterpark in the Lodge and well pretty much everything in the lodge..The waterpark had like 11 slides and splash pool and lots of other things..We never had to leave.. It is very kid oriented..Here are a few pictures from the weekend..

Check out destiny..she figured her ball should of went

27 Weeks

So Ive made it to 27 weeks..:)) Im still hanging in there..but def counting down the weeks..I am just getting more and more miserable as the weeks go by which is to be expected I guess..I go see the dr on Tuesday and will have another ultrasound. So you can look for an update then. Otherwise I dont really any new updates as far as the pregnancy. I also would like to clear the air a little..for those of you asking me I have not did and will not do any extra testing this pregnancy for anything including down syndrome or any other chromosome abnormalities. Yes, I am going against my dr.s orders but I wouldnt do anything different if anything came back abnormal. I am so against them tests anyway bc of them tests is why the abortion rate for down syndrome babies is so high..and it really is soo sad It just breaks my heart to think about it. I will take any blessing that God gives us and if it happens to be another child with down syndrome...well then all i can say is AWESOME!! Avery has been such a BLESSING to us!!

Girls Day Out!!

Girls day out!! Yippeee!! I took the easy way out this year for Destiny's bday.(i think i have good reason to:)) I asked her if she would be ok with going to build-a-bear with one friend instead of a bday party and she was all excited about it..So yesterday I went to the mall with Destiny and one of her best friends and Jared got to stay home with the other girls..Our first stop was to eat out of course!! So i let them choose where they wanted to go and what did they chose Chick-fil-A...then our next stop was Build-A-Bear..Wow!! I had never been there before and was it ever neat. I would say if anyone has little girls take them there at least once even if it is for a birthday. They will have sooo much fun!!! First we have to pick out our animal then u stuff it and u get to make a wish on a heart for the bear and put it in the bear before you close it..then there is a station to fluff it and then u can pick out an outfit for your bear/or whatever animal u chose..and it isnt just a few outfits to pick from its walls of outfits that are really stinkin cute!!! You cant forget the shoes or accessories. Then you get to name it and get your certificate with your animals name on it with there bday. It was so much fun and the girls both had a blast!! But our fun didnt stop there..Destiny's friend gave her money for her present and she brought some of her own spending money so they could go shopping so off we went to Claires...what more perfect store for two little girly girls right??:)) They went crazy in that was actually pretty funny just to watch them and of course they had to have there own baskets:)) You have no idea how much stuff went in that basket and back out before they ever agreed on there purchase!! But overall i would say that they managed there money pretty well and were very happy with there purchase..what did they end up with??? Well a diary, a mood ring, best friend rings, and lip gloss..Just to sit back and listen to there conversations was hillarious..hmmm i wonder if i was ever like that:)) I know Im not the only one that got a chuckle out of them in that store..hehe..Then our final stop the cookie store to have a treat and sit down and relax for a little bit.. (nice replacement for cake) Overall it was a huge success!!! It made me very happy that I had girls bc it was pretty fun for me too:))Destiny said that it was the best bday ever and both the girls kept talking about it all the way it saved me from ALOT of work so i dont have to plan a kid bday party and Destiny is very happy so it was a win win situation!! Who knows maybe i might of started a good thing bc know Brielle wants to do the same thing for her bday so it sounds like i will luck out with her too:)) Ooh how nice Im so glad that my girls are easy to please and they are so understanding of my situation right now:))

Picking out there animals- they both chose purple kitties

24 Week Update

I just wanted to post a quick update from my dr. appointment/ultrasound that i had last Thursday..The babies are are both about 1.5 lbs. and baby A is measuring 23w 5d and baby B is measuring 23w 2d and when i went in i was 24w1d so that is great!!! They are growing great..They look great and they are both still girls:)) I am finally starting to gain some weight so my dr can get of my back a little:P I'm measuring at 30w she said that typically she likes to see twin pregnancy measuring about 6weeks ahead so i was right on the money so she really didn't have anyhting to complain about this week with me..As far as my contractions are going I'm still having them..I am still doing the home monitoring every night and every morning for an hour...I then fax them in my reading from the night before and the morning every morning before noon and then a nurse from the center calls me back within a half hour and lets me know what they are reading and gets my blood pressure and pulse and answers any questions that i have or see if i am having any other symptoms. Its a pretty neat system that they have really..sometimes they read none and then other times they read one or two..lately they have been reading one or two..but my cervix is still closed and long so that is GREAT news!! She gave me a meds too so if i feel like i am having too many contractions then i take some medicine too..I have my good days and my bad..Well that pretty much sums it up..I'm just relaxing and trying to keep these babies in me as long as possible..We were actually watching the news the other night and there was a mom on there that had delivered 5 babies at 5 or 6 months and any whoo they were the same weight as my babies and it was just amazing and sad at the same time..just to see exactly what my babies look like right now but then sad too bc obviously they were all fighting for there lives bc they were so premature..They were just so tiny!
it has been going good with Avery during the day. This might be a very good thing for her bc she is learning to do alot of things on her own and become very independent like climbing in her own chair to eat and learning to help mom out even:)) But we are starting to get into that wander stage which terrifies me..She likes to go next door to our neighbors house and knock on there door..She can get over there pretty quick before her waddling mother comes to get (Good thing we are friends with our neighbors its david and loretta) I'm amazed at how much she has been learning these last couple of months..She loves to play with her dollies so i think she will do good with the new babies.. Well i suppose i need to go fax in my strips from my monitoring so have a good day everyone
