23 Week Appointment!

Everything seems to be going really well.  I'm exhausted and can't imagine myself getting more uncomfortable and I have at least 14-15 weeks left, so I'm not sure how that's going to pan out!  The babies weigh 1lb and 1lb 3oz respectively and they are in about the 50th percentile right now.

Great news is that they are both head down and the u/s tech said that this is about the time when they establish positions for delivery.  I know it seems early, but I swear she said that!

The OB is keeping my visits at 4 weeks instead of every 2 like she usually does for twins because it's going so well.  I think we should've knocked on wood:)

It's proving to be a lot more challenging caring for a 2 year old everyday, but Ella is a great kid and I couldn't ask for anything more from her.  She has her moments, but usually does well during the day, but there are just some things that she can't do for herself like get in her crib or her car seat which are the two most challenging things for me to do for her.

Speaking of Ella Bo, she is almost 100% potty trained.  She wakes up dry from her nap and sometimes from overnight, but isn't in a big girl bed yet, so I can't expect her to do any better.  No accidents in over 2 weeks.  But she still asks for M&M's after.  2 to be exact.  Blue and Green:P And yes, she knows when they aren't blue and green.  Which is good and bad. 

Oddly enough Adam and I haven't purchased much for the babies yet.  Actually really haven't done anything to get ready for them.  I feel a little guilty, but I have no energy lately, and when I do, it's used on Ella.  My mom has done a ton of shopping and we are so grateful for that.  Our baby boy is outfitted for next summer because of her generosity.  We're not really worried about the girl because we have Ella's old clothes, but they are different sizes, so we are going to try and make it work.  I have hit a few clearances at Target and gotten both of the babies a few summer things.  Other than that, people have been really generous with donating their old baby clothes to us. 

Aaaand I'll stop babbling.  Thanks for those of your who are consistently reading the blog and commenting, love the comments, lets me know people are reading:)
