Double Bubble Burst

Zoey Jean and Vandi Lynn arrived today. We feel so blessed to have them come to our family. Both are healthy and strong, and Missy is doing really well.

Here are a couple of pictures. First we have Vandi making her angry face, and Zoey is next sleeping peacefully.

Double Bubble

I thought I'd show off my "double-bubble". Blake took a couple of pictures to help me remember. I also took measurements. It wrapped up at a wopping 42 inches, 3 1/2 feet. Did anyone know skin could stretch like this? I'm at almost 38 weeks which is so great. Most twins don't go this long. My ribs are telling me I should be done, but that doesn't seem to be the determining factor, as to when babies are born.

I am loving the comments and the expressions I receive any where I go. Most people just stare. Others I overhear saying "she looks like she's going to pop!" Some will casually ask, "When are you due?" My response, "I hope tomorrow." That usually gets a laugh and a reply, "Yeah, you are looking very uncomfortable." Does it show that much, I wonder? Maybe it's the waddle I've acquired or the fact my stomach is 2 feet in front of me. I don't know. It has been fun, but yes I am so ready to get our little cuties here!

I wanted to add some pictures I love. A couple are of Blake and Izaak's snow day. Blake had promised to take Izaak out to make a snow man. As you can see there wasn't much snow. It didn't bother Izaak one bit, he had so much fun with his daddy. He especially enjoyed throwing snow out in the road and at our huge bush.

The other picture is of Izaak and me making cookies. I've been sitting down to cook a lot more lately, and it has been so fun because Izaak loves to help. Izaak will climb on my lap and pour in the ingredients. His favorite part is the sampling.
