Claire asks almost every day if it is time for the babies to "come out". She calls them by first and middle name. She has everything assigned to one baby or the other if something doesn't match exactly. She spends a great deal of time in their room and constantly asks to get in the cribs or look at tiny baby clothes. I'm so excited to watch her grow into her role as big sister. We think she is going to be very helpful and very loving to her little sisters.
It is still hard to believe that there will be one new baby living at our house let alone TWO babies! People often tell us how crazy that seems and we completely agree. I think at first, we were so unsure of what this adventure would be like but now we are so sure that it is going to be fantastic! We don't know how it will work but we know we can do it. We know it will be hard, but we also know we have enough love for all of these sweet girls that God chose to bless us with.
We have been doing weekly checkups for almost two months now. I have been having some issues with my blood sugar and so the doctor has been monitoring me closely. Earlier today, we went in for a checkup and full sonogram scan. We were so happy to be updated on how the babies are growing now that we are 33 weeks. Baby A measured 32 weeks and 6 days and Baby B measured 33 weeks and 2 days. The tech's estimate is that each baby is 4 and a half pounds each. We were shocked to hear that I am already carrying around 9 pounds of baby! I have been guessing that each girl will be around 6 pounds each. Claire was exactly 6 pounds and 1 ounce so I think they will both be pretty close to that.
Only 4 more weeks to go!
