Under the plan of heaven, the husband and the wife walk side by side as companions, neither one ahead of the other, but a daughter of God and a son of God walking side by side.

Cute pics

I found the kids asleep like this on my bed. Isaac was out of town, so I let Emerson sleep in my bed. When I went in a couple hours later, Capri had climbed in bed as well. I love how their arms are wrapped around each other. She is going to miss him so much when he goes to school.

My mom got the kids these "airplane" pillows. I found him asleep with his around his neck. It made me smile.

Just had to put on a picture of Cade. He has a great smile!

Capri asleep snuggled with Minnie and Mickey. So sweet!

34 weeks

We have made it to 34 weeks. I have to say that part of me is glad, but with every ultrasound, I pray she will come early. My back is killing me and I can't believe that I am 6 weeks away from my due date and she is already bigger than Capri and Cade when they were born. She is doing great and gaining weight rapidly BUT I am loosing weight. Go figure. At least it won't be hard to "bounce back" after pregnancy. (Believe it or not - I'm only up 16 pounds.) We are still seeing the OB twice a week and now another specialist once a week. We have an amniocentesis scheduled at 38 weeks and depending on size they will either deliver c-section or induce me. They already booked the c-section because they estimate she is pretty big. I would love to argue, but I feel and look huge. I've quit going out anywhere but doctor's appointments (I won't even go to church). I hate all the comments about me having twins and how big I look, so I just try to avoid that all together. I still wanted to post pictures so that I could remember everything and so that my family could see. Please avoid any mean comments. ;-) We have already decided not to really announce how much she weighs when she is born. I want people to focus on how cute she is, not how big she is. (That's mostly what I got with Emerson - people just amazed that he was - 9 lbs. 2 oz.) We know if I deliver at 38 weeks, she is probably be bigger than he was. I've decided that she better be DANG CUTE to make all this worth it. I'm soooo tired and hungry and just ready to be done.

Lots of updates

Scroll down for lots of updates. I think I am finally caught up . . .

Las Vegas

This describes their personalities perfectly!

Sweet baby was so great the whole time.

Playing at my parents really cool pool.

In one of the casinos after dinner one night.

We took a great little trip to Las Vegas last week. Isaac had a business trip there and we decided to join him. Lindsey came with us and my parents were there for the same convention Isaac was there for. It was fun to get to see everyone. I did not take as many pictures as I should have. I was listening to the doctor's orders and trying to take it easy. We did a lot of swimming, shopping and just hanging out. The last day we were there, Isaac and I took the kids to the Shark Aquarium. Emerson was obsessed with my dad and wanted to see him every day. We wish the trip would have lasted a little bit longer. It was really hard to say goodbye to everyone. Isaac has a business trip to California tomorrow, but I really don't think the doctor will let me go. It's worth asking, I guess. . .

Getting bigger!

This picture was taken a couple weeks ago. I'm feeling okay. It's been a rough pregnancy. I am seeing the doctor 3 times a week, which is really taking it's toll. The best thing, I guess, is that I'm getting 2 ultrasounds a week. I love getting to see her that often. I really hating having the gestational diabetes, and would kill for a bite of any kind of sugar, but I'm getting used to it. There are a couple other things going on, but I won't bore you with details - we're just counting down the days until it's all over. We are almost 34 weeks! Yeah! I'm really getting sick of hearing "are you still pregnant?", "are you having twins?" and other comments along that line. I'm glad that I'm not going out much any more. Her lungs are not mature yet, so I'm taking it easy and hoping she stays in longer than Capri or Cade did. We are looking forward to meeting our sweet (big) baby in a couple weeks. (At my 33 week ultrasound she was already measuring 5 1/2 pounds . . .)

Sun glasses

For our trip to Las Vegas, we got the kids sun glasses so I didn't have to listen to them whine about the sun being in their eyes. They were a hit and they look forward to putting them on every time we get into the car. It's really cute!

Last swimming lesson

As mentioned before, we were taking a pretty intense approach to swimming. After 6 weeks of 4 days a week lessons, the kids are pros! They both passed survival level one and we feel confident that what they learned is a good start to a fun summer full of swimming. They LOVED their teacher, Mister Justin, and really had a hard time when the lessons were over. We were so lucky that Grandma Boren was able to make it to one of their last swimming lessons and be a part of their award ceremony for passing survival level 1. We hope to continue after the baby gets here and we get into a good schedule!
