Half Way There!

Happy Thanksgiving to all. Hope everyone had a wonderful time with friends and family.

We are soooo excited to share, we made it to 20 weeks. We had a big ultrasound this past week where we saw the babies again. Looks like they are both growing like champs. We are just thrilled to see two healthy heart beats and active little ones. Here are a few good images from the ultrasound appointment.

Baby A says HI!

Baby B's 2 little feet

We are just thrilled all looks good. The appointment also confirmed that they are about 99.9% sure they are both girls. Oh BOY! So it is offical, house full of females for Brad. 

Here is the growing belly. This is Pre Thanksgiving Turkey dinner, so maybe it is a little bigger now. But all is all, starting to have a belly. Fun to feel the babies move around a bit. I am sure they will start to become more active as the space gets tighter for them, but right know, they all seem happy.
Towards the end of 19 weeks.

We have another big ultrasound this week where they focus only on the babies hearts. Another big milestone for their development. More updates to come once we get past that appointment as well.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We are excited to finally be able to share this wonderful news with you all. More to come.

The EXCITED Big Sister to be!!!!

The past 4 years and the next adventure

Well, it has been over 4 years since our last post on this site. And WOW, what a 4 years it has been. Sydney just celebrated her 4th birthday with an amazing trip to Disneyland. We met all her favorite characters and had a magical time.

Minnie was so excited to see us all!
Sporting her new mouse ears!

While Sydney has been growing up so fast, her request for the past year was to become a big sister. As many of you who know our journey well, we have been trying to make this wish of hers come true for some time. After a lot of ups and down, we got to share the best birthday present with Sydney this year....

And as she has been waiting so patiently, we though we would supersize her birthday present.....

Yup, those are 2 babies rubbing there little eyes, TWINS!! The above picture is from our 12 week ultrasound.

In keeping with tradition from Sydney's pregnancy journey, we thought we would keep you all updated with belly growing photos. I assume with twins, we will have a MUCH larger belly, but here are a few from the past few weeks.

14 Weeks

17 Weeks

So far, all our appointments have gone well. Both babies have been growing at the right pace and have 10 fingers and 10 toes! We have a couple big ultrasounds coming up in the next few weeks, so we will keep you all posted the the results. We are currently due April 15, Tax Day and 1 day before Grandma Yoder's Birthday. I am pretty sure the twins will come early, but so far, on target for an April delivery. 

We are all thrilled to share this wonderful news with you, our close friends and family, who have been through this long journey with us. Thank you all for your amazing support and encouragement over the past 3 years. It has helped make this even more special news to share.

More to come!
