introducing....

well we had our ultrasound yesterday which was so exciting. we were really excited to find out the sex of the baby but unfortunately we couldn't because....we found out that there is not just one baby but two. its a double blessing. as overwhelming as this all is we are also aware that we are so blessed. because of the babies position we couldn't see what they were but the tech was pretty sure that the babies are identical. anyways i wanted you to see our babies first photo shoot. they were referred to as baby a and baby b for the tech as she had lots of measurments to take. the babies measure the same and look to be growing well. not sure where they are going to grow too. i feel a bit full already.

this first picture is of our babies heads. it was funny the way they were draped all over each other. baby b had its little bum in baby a's face and dave said at times would be kicking baby a in the head. hopefully they can get along in their little home.





this is baby a - very mellow. just relaxed there. every so often you'd see baby a's arms and legs move but it was perfectly content. one of the most incredible things was seeing there little hearts beating and watching them gulp and swallow.






this is baby b - much the little swimmer, twister and just general wiggly one. dave commented baby b seemed hyper. and hopefully baby b's kicking of baby a's head won't give either of them a complex. so where the babies bum is thats where baby a's head is. kind of like they are spooning backwards. i'm sure they will be good friends.

I've been telling everyone I know! I can't believe it. Craziness. Still needing time with Ben and the calendar, but I'll be in touch soon.--Mel

Double blessing is right!
I remember with Julia and Evelyn, as much as they took out of you, they also gave back!
Now all the more I can hardly wait to see and hold our second and third grandchildren!

Heather I hafta say you are a great gal. It would have taken me far longer to see the 'blessing" in two people kicking each other's heads in my belly!!! It is a blessing indeed and you are sounding up for the ride!!

I am so excited!! This is great news!! I LOVE the pics... I showed everyone in my office. We are so amazed at how they are like little beings in there. Sounds like one baby is like Dave and one is like you (minus the kicking in the head)! hahaha :) of course they will be great friends.

I look forward to hearing/seeing more!

Love you, Lyd xoxo
