33 Weeks

We are in the home stretch now!   With our c-section scheduled for Nov. 23rd we are only 5 weeks or less from meeting our "super babies" (that is what Cali calls them - thanks Dora!).

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 33 Weeks
Size of baby: Boy is 4 lbs 8 ozs 33%, girl is 3 lbs 13 ozs 7%
Maternity Clothes: Maternity clothes and Nick's clothes
Gender: One boy, one girl!
Movement: The babies move a lot.  The little girl has managed to totally change positions again.  Not sure how she finds the room!
Sleep: Sleeping is getting uncomfortable since I can only lay on my left side.  
What I miss: Energy, being comfortable, and the ability not to waddle.
Cravings: Sweets and fried food
Symptoms: I'm big!
Best Moment this week: Our wonderful church family gave us a Double the Fun baby shower last weekend!  It was so thoughtful of them to get us so many wonderful things for the twins.  

You may notice that our little girl is pretty small, 7% (for none baby people - Doctors use a 100% scale to rate the size of babies with the average baby being 50% in size).   She is gaining weight but is just not as big as the Doctors would like her to be.  What they want us to do is come in twice a week to do a None Stress Test or NST.  Basically they put monitors on the babies to watch their heartbeats.  As long as the lines go up and down a lot we are fine.  They are also monitoring the babies fluid and umbilical cord flow.  At this point their isn't anything to worry about and if anything does come up we are going to the Dr. so much they will find it.

Big Girl

It seems like over night Cali is becoming such a BIG GIRL!  She is doing great with peeing in the potty.  Her imagination is broadening for play time.  She eats lots of different kinds of food.  She talks in paragraphs.  She can get in or on almost anything - she is our little monkey!  She goes to playschool 4 mornings a week and loves it!  She picks up on everything!

Here are some big girl pictures for you.
Ready for school with her big backpack! 
She is fearless!

Playing dress up

The BIG piece of news is that tonight Cali is sleeping in a Big Girl bed for the first time!  We are going to use her crib for the twins so Nick moved her crib out of her room and put together a toddler bed that our wonderful family gave us!

Getting in her big girl bed for the first time.  I love the pure joy on her face!  She is super excited!

Pretending to sleep.
