We're going to be a family of 5

Making the bear, look at that smile

Just waiting for daddy now

Bringing the bear to daddy

YEAH!!! We didn't know it was going to be 2!!

My 12 week ultrasound, the babies were so active and also were very close together

Most of you already know, but Bret and I are expecting TWINS!!!!!! We are so excited and a little scared at the same time. It has taken me a long time to post this, but I wanted to make sure that everything was ok with our two new bundles of joy. Last week I had my 12 week ultrasound and both of them are doing great, they are about the same time and had the exact same heart beat of 164, they are fraternal and we will find out what they are in four more weeks. I am dying to know so that I can get things ready. With Mackenzie we didn't find out, but with two of them I feel like we need a little more time to prepare for everything as when they arrive we will be pretty busy. I am feeling good, I am extremely tired and have been getting bad migraines, but I am hoping now that I am in my second trimester that those will die down. Even though I am just 12 weeks, my uterus is measuring at 15, which means I am already showing. I am still in my regular clothes, but barely. With Mackenzie I didn't wear maternity clothes until 20 weeks and then I just blew up because she was so big. With these little ones I am already growing each day, it should be interesting to see how enormous I get. At least I am still able to workout and go running, but I lose my breath a lot easier so I have to be careful.

As for Mackenzie she could not be more excited to be a big sister. But she really just wants two sisters so we will see. She talks to my belly everyday and tells me to take it easy and lay down so that I take care of the babies, it is adorable. Like I said earlier we have known for quite awhile, but when I found out I was pregnant I took Mackenzie to Build a Bear and had her make a bear and record a message in the paw that said "I'm the big sister", then we dressed the bear in one of her old onesies and tied the digital pregnancy test in the bear's hands. When Bret got home Mackenzie gave him the bear, it was so cute. I will keep you all posted as to how we are doing, but as for now we are just preparing to expand our little family of 3 to 5 in just a few months.

Congratulations. It has been a long time. How are you guys doing? I was trying to find Brett on Facebook so I could keep in touch but couldn't find him. But I found this and I'm glad I did.
