the hunt

ok, so you've probably heard this before, but house hunting is really frustrating! so far this has pretty much been our pattern: 1. find a place we love 2. put in an offer 3. wait 4. start planning our lives there and how we can decorate and make it our home 5. we wait some more 6. after much waiting we find out for whatever reason it doesn't work out.

the good news is, josh and i are both learning to trust in the lord and exercise more faith. we feel like we are on this unspoken "deadline" to move before the babies come, which could be any time after October (somehow i just don't see how we would fit all four of us and our 2 cats in our tiny one-bedroom apartment). but, despite the worries, it still feels good to be looking and doing everything we can. i know Heavenly Father will take care of us. i'm still amazed that he is sending us two of his children at once and is trusting us to raise them. i know He has a plan for us and things will work out. the best part is that i know He wants us to be happy NOW too. so we'll just keep enjoying life and looking forward to more blessings to come.

green babies!

I know all I post about lately (and maybe from now on) are our babies. But, we are so excited for them! Our lives are going to change completely the moment they're born. It's unreal to think about.

I had another doctor's appointment today and everything looks great! I have my 20 week ultrasound tomorrow which is always exciting. It's also our anniversary tomorrow so Josh is coming with me on a date to Kaiser :) I still can't feel the babies though so I was a little worried...but doc says it looks like the placenta is in the front so that could be why (you were right Amelia!). Normal pregnancy is 40 weeks total and with twins she said if I make it to 37 it will be "outstanding". Pretty much anything after 34 weeks is bonus, so she says.

And I was so excited today when my co-worker Julie gave me these adorable onesies---

I love having a common word as a last name!

Today Josh told me he's EXCITED and looking forward to CRAZY Sunday mornings getting two kids ready for church. How cute is that? He is going to make a wonderful daddy.

And just as further evidence of his cuteness, here's a picture of my honey when he was a little boy. I hope our kids look just like him!
