18w 6d

I can't believe how bad I've been at blogging this pregnancy (and about EJ and my life in general). It never ceases to amaze me how quickly times flies and how little I seem to get done (laundry, getting my haircut, anything really).

Let's see if I can recap:

We've sold our house and bought a new one. We haven't moved yet - that will be the weekend of Jan. 28/29/30. We found a bigger home to house our growing family, and let's just hope we can afford it all :)

This pregnancy is getting physically easier in some respects. I'm not nearly as nauseous (knock on wood) and the exhaustion has lightened up a bit. My belly is pretty big. I think I'm as big as I was at around 24 weeks with EJ. I can't believe I'm at the halfway point. I have my BIG ultrasound on Thursday 1/13. Even though we already know we're having a boy and a girl, it will still be exciting to see them. I'm praying all of their parts looks just as they should and that they cooperate so the u/s tech can get all the proper measurements.

EJ turned TWO on New Year's Day. I cannot fathom how he's been with me for two years already. And yet, I can't imagine what my life was like without him. He's handsome and hilarious and he loves me more than anything...well, except Oreos. Haha.

I think that's it in a nutshell. I will post after my u/s on Thursday and hopefully I'll have some good pictures to share too. And speaking of the twins...what do you all think of the names Jacob and Jillian? Their full names would be Jacob Edward (DH is Ed) and Jillian Lynne (My Mom is Lynda). What do you think of the J and J thing??? And is it silly that they'd be "Jake and Jill". Haha - just things family/friends have pointed out to me.

Here is a picture of them taken on 12/20. Our little man is on the left and our girl is on the right. Sorry it's not a great photo. I took a picture of the u/s with my phone.

Hope that your big scan went well last week. Those are some cute babies you are growing.

I love the names.

You might get some Twilight comments with a name like Jacob Edward, but it's my guess no one will remember those books in a few years.
