5 months old today!

5 months ago today I was feeling a little uneasy. i had just spent 4 days on hospital bedrest and 4 days on home bed rest. i needed to get out of the house so my loving husband and i went for a drive. my vision was blurry and i wasn't feeling well so we my friends at the doc's office. they said to have my blood pressure checked, so off to Kmart we went. we drove the little jazzy cart over to the pharmacy and tested. it was a little high so i decided to drive around a bit more and then test again. we drove around looking at little things and then went back to check again. On our way to the pharmacy, in my jazzy cart driving, pregnancy state, i drove right passed a section of mirrors. BIG mistake. in every sense of the word! I looked like a slobby ginormous blob. I was embarrassed to be out in public! (i was probably a bit hormonal too) All of this combined would make anyones blood pressure rise. mine was higher than the 20 minutes earlier we had taken it. We were off to the doctors office. they had me sit for a while on a monitor and then sent me to labor and delivery for some more aggressive observation. then the midwife i had chosen to assist my doctor with the C-section and my favorite midwife ever!, came into the room to inform me that we were going to have 2 birthdays that night! What !? i was so scared and nervous and not ready (who is? right?) and at 8:37 and 8:38 pm my little babies were born. Now i know this is the kind of post most women write at 1 year, but it is really sinking in for me just how fast these angels are growing and how fast my pregnancy went by and how much i miss rubbing my massive belly wondering about the two little adventures inside of me. and i just needed to relive that day for a moment today. we'll call it therapy. :)

Also i just realized that i haven't posted anything about christmas or new years or anything. we have had a pretty low key holiday season this year and i've loved it. We made it to our friends house for christmas eve and new years eve and had a blast. Aunt SueAnn and Aunt Terra were able to come visit at the first of december and the end of december. we loved having each of them here and can't wait to see either of them again!

back to the kids! At 5 months and just over 3 months from their due date (oct. 16) our kids:

smile a lot!
Laugh quite a bit
jibber jabber all the time
love their baths (bryn used to scream!)
sleep 6-8 solid hours most nights and then another 2 or 3 so we are in heaven!
are so good at holding up their heads
bryn loves to stand (us or her bouncy chair holding her of course)
and boyd is starting to love to stand (under the same circumstances.)
each child can make mom laugh her hardest, make her tear up, and become the silliest craziest goofiest version of herself
each child also has the ability to make Dad laugh, smile, tear up (though he won't admit it), and become the silliest craziest, goofiest version of himself.
we are loved and they are loved..........unconditionally and that is the best feeling!

Way to grow kids!

I most certainly cannot believe that it has been 5 months... Wow! That went fast for me... and I didn't lose 1 nights sleep. ;) I bet you have been missing a few.

I bet you are an awesome Mom Miss Sara... not everyone can pull off twins.


Cheryl said...

Oh my! She is just a mini-Sara! I am with you on the whole 'growing-up-too-fast' thing!

I can't believe it's been 5 months already!! They're getting so big!! Before you know it they'll both be running around your house making huge messes!! :)

Brittany said...

They have come so far. They are both beautiful!! I wish we were up there to see them hit these milestones and grow.

Shannon said...

I can't believe how quickly they're growing up. They're so sweet. Thanks for posting more pictures!

Sara! They are SO big! We have those same exact high chairs and my girls absolutely love it when I put them together facing each other like that, they thinks completely hilarious that they can feel each other's feet. Keep up the good work, you're doing awesome!

Nate and Felicia Thomson said...

How fun! I can't believe they are that old though! Bryn looks exactly like you. It is funny how they can make you act silly huh! They are cuties!

Derek and Lisa Larson said...

So cute! I am so happy for you!
