Pat walked through the door Friday evening and said, “Let’s go.” The thought of not having to cook dinner made me move faster than I have in months, and I was the first one out the door. We pulled through Wendy’s drive-thru and then parked in front of Pat’s dad’s house, who lives on a golf course. We piled into Dorsie’s golf cart and I couldn’t help but grin as I listened to Ledger squeal with delight while simultaneously stuffing chicken nuggets into his mouth.
I drove while Pat played 9 holes, and Ledger split his time between the two of us. It was a perfect night, spending time outdoors, watching Pat introduce Ledger to the game he loves, with a beautiful Idaho sunset in the background.
While I watched my two matching boys play, I realized these are the moments I’m going to miss. With twins on the way, life is about to change…and hopefully in a couple of years we’ll be able to replay Friday night, the only difference will be Pat will have two more crazy boys to chase around.
How far along? 26 Weeks 5 days
Maternity clothes? I finally splurged on maternity bottoms and have been much more comfortable! I found a couple of pairs of shorts at Ross for cheap. I also bought some capri’s from Motherhood Maternity. Most days I live in Pat’s basketball shorts and T-shirts.
Stretch marks? Just the same ones from my last two pregnancies.
Sleep: If I eat something small before bed I don’t seem to wake up around 5 AM starving. This week I’ve had corn flakes before bed each night. :)
Miss Anything? I tried helping out in the Sno Shack opening week and I was pretty much useless.
Movement: The babies have started reacting to sound. Just this week, Pat started up the lawn mower and I instantly felt 8 limbs kicking and squirming. These two boys are already strong! It seems like there is usually always at least one baby moving, and I can no longer tell which baby is which, or what limb belongs to who.
Symptoms: Braxton hicks quite often. I didn’t get these with my other two, they are uncomfortable.
Food cravings: Ice. Whether I get it from a sno cone or from anywhere else I’m happy. We don’t have an ice dispenser so I hit up drive thru’s and ask for a large cup filled with ice. Pat has started bringing me home cups too… ha I’m officially that weird pregnant lady I made fun of while working in the Sno Shack in high school.
Ledger recently discovered he’s faster than his pregnant momma. He darts away every chance he can get..which makes leaving the house stressful. I was thrilled when my mom invited us to the zoo, I couldn’t resist the extra hands. I waddled behind the two of them, snapped a few pictures, and enjoyed the warm weather.
Ledger didn’t remember any of our trips from the previous year, so this trip to the zoo was a new experience for him. He left roaring like a lion, snorting like a pig, and making monkey noises all the way home.
Thanks Mom for the fun afternoon and all of your help!
