Some news to share ...

I wanted to let you in on some news that I've been writing about in recent posts, but of course, a few hints before I let you in on the secret ...


My typical 10am snack has changed from a banana to this ...



My daily vitamin intake has increased as well ... (I'm kind of embarrased, because my hands look really dry in this photo.)


I carry this prescription around, just in case ...



I've often found these treats to be really, really good ...




My nighttime reading has changed from this ....





to this ...


Several of my pants have this fancy waistband ...



And we've started receiving sweet little gifts like these ...



I'm sure you've guessed, but the news is that I'm expecting and due August 7, but our big news is that I'm expecting TWINS!! So that surprise that I hinted about on Tuesday will more than likely be here by mid July.


And, yes, Zeus & Zoe know the news. We're not sure if they understand that this means fewer belly rubs for them and getting used to lots of crying and diapers, but we think they'll be a great big "sister" and "brother." Or, if worse comes to worse, we can just saddle a baby on each dog!

Oh wow! congratulations! and TWINS, to boot! Whew! My best piece of advise is to read "The Secrets of the Baby Whisperer" by Tracy Hogg. That book had both of our boys sleeping through the night by 7 and 8 weeks!! It's an invaluable tool to getting your kids on a schedule. Can't wait to har all the updates!

Holy crap, TWINS! Congratulations! Welcome to the mama club! I won't give you any unsolicited assvice (the internet is full of it!) but if you ever find yourself with questions about anything please feel free to ask away!

Congratulations!!
I noticed you were/are reading the "Time Travelers Wife." I too read that while I was pregnant. Excellent book, but maybe not during pregnancy :)
Best wishes on your pregnancy!
