Heart Song

L'Shana Tova!!

This weekend was amazing.  It rained Fri-Sun, the air smells delicious and it feels like FALL.  I'm on the hunt for some new fall decorations and have been gathering ideas, which I'll hopefully start putting together later this week.  I welcome this decorating distraction with open arms.  I recently came across a few nursery items online that I've been obsessing over.  It's fun to find things I love but I'm trying to hold off on any purchases.  I'll be sure to upload an inspiration post soon so everyone's heart can sing "la la la" right along with mine.  For now here is a cuteness teaser:

I try to avoid making lists, because I find them addicting, but made a small one for the 6 weeks Keith will be away.  I have so many projects I'd like to accomplish, and it seems like this is a great time to be focused.  Not to mention, my tummy is still an easy crawl around the house size.

The twins club meeting was the start of something beautiful.  I met so many woman currently pregnant with twins, or who already have twins.  I knew it was going to be a good experience when I walked through the door.  The lady asking me to sign in was wearing a Penguins shirt...hello!!!!

23 weeks 5 days
I also had a great visit to my doctor.  The gummybear twins continue to grow and weigh 1.5 and 1.6 pounds.  My favorite thing about getting sonograms is watching the hearts beat.  Feeling the movement, knowing what's growing, finding cute things on etsy.....nothing compares to seeing those tiny beating hearts!!!  Although; witnessing a kicking match was pretty entertaining.

I have a few upcoming appointments, but since everything is on track they won't be monitoring via sonogram for awhile.  On a side-note...have you noticed the cute little noses?  Are you falling in love yet?  I'm going completely off heart rate theory here, but Gummy A is my boy guess, "he" is also the larger of the two.  I hear slower=boy, faster=girl.  Gummy A was 136 and Gummy B was 152.

I WAS so proud to post this honeypot update before any of my "fans" (you know who you are) made an official request.....OHH, so close!!  Anyways, I blame the neighborhood kids for the delay.  They've been hittin me up all day selling chocolate bars.  They are either telling each other I'm a buyer, or someone let it slip I'm pregnant and can't get enough chocolate.  Thank you little ones, come again :)

How far along? 24 weeks 1 day

I also wanted to add this gorgeous photo Keith posted today from Japan!  Although I miss him, and I'm uber jealous I'm not the world traveler, I'm thrilled he gets to experience something so amazing.
