"I CAN'T WAIT!"

[ "You know I love you - even when you don't try... I know that our love will never die...... Hey darling when you look into my eye...... Please tell me you'll never have to say goodbye"].
Okay, whoever (Meredith) gets this, I'll know that you Googled it. There's no way in hell that anyone will be able to pull this out of thin air. Although the hook of the song (and title) did come out of thin air for me, I did have to Google the group who sings it. The sentiment, obviously, pertaining to the fact that I have to wait an entire 5 more days to find out the genders of our babies! This is getting pretty ridiculous. Patience, indeed, is a virtue... and I hate virtues. Just kidding, virtues are great. Not. Ugh who's idea was this?! Oh, mine. Damn. The anticipation is sweet though, I'll be honest.... And I'm pretty impressed with myself for not yet tearing the damn envelope open, or at least gently sliding open the scotch tape that seals the envelope in a covert operation where I would then do my best not to call everyone in creation and again in a day-time Emmy performance on Wednesday at dinner conjure up my best surprised/shocked/excited act, only to tell on myself minutes later to a disappointed KK. Guess I'll just save myself (and everyone else) and wait. Sigh. Lord knows I have plenty to keep me busy though, but isn't it funny how time only flies when you don't want it to?? Well, to cheer us all up, let's make fun of me! Here I am, at only 16 weeks along: (what a beautifully shot photo, KK. After his belly shots and his photos from Anne and Kris's wedding, he's out for a position with Joanna Kleine Photography. I'd give him one but he's got attitude :)
I'm starting to feel a little heavy in my belly ("really, you don't say?"), and just yesterday I started to actually wonder about how the rest of this is going to go down. I'll just keep reminding myself that even through my discomfort - as long as the babies are safe, I can hang. I'm going to take it easy as much as possible, especially after my last wedding, at which I'll be right at about 26 weeks. And I'm still not going to complain because thus far and even now I'm feeling great and haven't had to deal with the majority of pregnancy symptoms I read about... So, we'll cross the rest of the bridges when we get to them. I tend not to be the worrying type, which, under my current condition, is a good thing. Plus, after my next monthly check-up and ultrasound at 20 weeks (again the countdown is on!), I'll start going every 2 weeks to my OB's. That eases my mind also, considering how close of an eye is on me and the twins... But at the 2 week check-ups is where the medical team really gets down to business - I'll spare you the description of what goes down, but most complications in multiple pregnancies (except for miscarriages of course) happen after 20 weeks, so they'll be watching me like a hawk. And I'm going to take extra measure to really be nice to myself, so hopefully all of my work and the Dr's work will pay off and I'll get myself some fat & happy, term babies. Speaking of my beautiful babies :), here they are from Tuesday.... as you can imagine, I'm so visually spoiled with the images I see everyday that I find myself disappointed with the ultrasound imagery... To which Kristian chimes in "um, what exactly do you expect?" He's so good for putting me in my place. :) Baby A Baby B The tops of both babies' heads - how cute...

Unfortunately I didn't get the opportunity to shoot any video this time, hopefully next time. And I promise better pictures when they're on the outside. :) I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying this amazing weather... Take care and thanks for stopping in!

I Can't Wait - Nu Shooz

Do I win???

Very cute ultrasound images. I love them.

I'm sure you will do great throughout the rest of your pregnancy, and I'm really glad to hear that you've been doing your homework and are planning on taking it easy throughout the end!

I'm so freakin' excited for next Wednesday!!!!
