I just have to say that I am one lucky lady. Brett has been so helpful while I have been so sick. He has been on night duty with Tate (who decided to stop sleeping through the night again) since I found out I was pregnant. He plays with Tate nonstop while he is home to give me a break. He picks up and cleans the house. I would not be able to do it without him.

Band aid

Tate gave me a big band aid today. It is also known as a panty liner.  Ha!  

The babies really love round steak and gravy. I used up my last package in the freezer. I am sad because I know store bought meat won't be the same. I had some major, painful bloating today which made me cry. Tate looked at me and said  "It's okay mom" which made me cry more. Two babies equals even more hormones to make me cry.

I got a little pumpkin last year at the store and threw it out in the weeds after fall was over. It made a volunteer plant that produced quite a few little pumpkins. We picked them this evening. Tate thought they were perfect to haul around in the dump truck.

Tate came out of my closet and said he had dancing shoes!  I am not sure where he picked that up since I rarely wear heels. 

Then he wanted to be super man and save the day. The house got warm so he got to run around without pants.

The weather was beautiful so we went to town and then out to dinner. Tate did great. I was not feeling well so I didn't take any pictures.

We let word out today that we are having twins!!  I am very excited but very nervous about bed rest and early delivery.   I had my first appointment at the regular OB office. It is always hard to leave the familiar faces at the specialist. I am going to a different doctor than the one who delivered Tate. My cousin started as an OB and I am seeing one of her coworkers. Hopefully she can assist at my c section. They couldn't find both heartbeats today with the Doppler so I had to get a sonogram. Both babies looked great. They were both moving all around.

We took Tate fishing with my dad this evening. When we pulled a fish out of the water Tate exclaimed, "It's a whale!"  He had a good time but was not quiet and didn't sit still for long. We just caught the one fish and a turtle.
