So now what?

Well Baltimore finally saw some snow this last week and I ended up with 3 snow days- the kids lucked out because Monday and Tuesday were PD days so they didn't have school at all last week.  Love me some snow days but this year I hate them because since we make them up at the end of the school year that means extra sicks days will be used since I am not going back to work after Spring Break/Easter according to the Doctor.

I am starting to look forward to Spring for a few reasons, however, the main reason right now is because of my winter coat.  These twins are growing, which means so is my tummy and in turn means my winter coat is getting tight and soon won't be able to zipper shut!  So now what????  I am not buying another coat to get me through the rest of the winter!

We have started our registries and let me just say- its a bit over whelming picking out all those things!  Know which one is better than the other- grrrrr.  It is also making it hard do to the fact we don't know what Baby A is yet (in case you missed it Baby B is a boy).  I need to use a checklist and start making what we picked out so far and what else we need.  If anybody who has had a baby recently wants to go with me next time to give some advice you are more than welcome!!!  When we went this weekend the Husband kept asking if we could scan Blu Rays, etc on to it  LOL

As for the nursery- we haven't gotten much of anywhere yet and I really want to get going and least switch the rooms around and paint.  Well things will all fall into place so no need to get worked up over it.

Two special events coming up that need your help

I have two special events coming up that need your help:
  • I have a friend who her family is hosting Casey’s Histiocytosis Basket Bingo to support the Histiocytosis Association of America. Casey is my friend’s son who was diagnosed with Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis and is currently undergoing treatment at Johns Hopkins Hospital. The bingo is being held on his 10th birthday and instead of having a birthday party like most kids he wants to raise awareness and funds for the HAA. They are looking for donations gift certificates, products or services * Tax deductable) to fill the baskets with to help make a difference! HAA is the only nonprofit organization dedicated to providing support and education to patients and families likes ours that are dealing with histiocytic disorders in the United States. The HAA also provides funding for numerous research grants in hopes of finding better treatment option and a cure for this rare blood disease. To follow Casey’s battle against LCH please visit his website http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/caseyjenkins 
  • I am working with Cirque du Soleil and giving away tickets to the new show TOTEM that is coming to Baltimore this Spring. They would like find a restaurant to partner with the give away to create a “Night Out on the Town” prize which would include the tickets to the show and maybe a dinner/ gift card to a restaurant.

If you are interested in supporting either of these events please contact me at AIBR.Blog@gmail.com

Running and jumping, skipping and spinning- the Twins are on the go!

Just got home from the Doctor with nothing but As on my report card!  The Twins were SUPER active to the point it was hard to get a good listen to the heart beats (The Dr even asked if I felt movement yet).  The Dr and I were laughing because they kept moving every time he found the heart beats.

All the blood work I had last week came back perfect- levels and all.  My blood pressure was fine.  I gain 6 lbs since the last visit four weeks ago.

One crazy thing that happened was that the Dr I saw today told me I would be put on bed rest around week 28.  Which is a month sooner than I had planned- so we will see :/

The next Dr visit is on Valentine's Day- maybe I get get the Hubby to take me to dinner after wards!

January 24th we head for the ultrasound and hope to learn the sexes (if the Twins are cooperating).  I was told this appoint will 45 min - 1 hour (if not more, depending on the babies).  They will measure all sorts of things on each baby.

Also besides getting updates here you can also visit the official Babies Lemmo Website

Getting ready for a new life part 1

So now that I officially announce our exciting news that we are having twins, it is time to start getting ready and nesting!  We have already started to clean house in a sense and filled the 4Runner once with stuff for Goodwill.  The Husband is working on baby proofing the stereo system through out the house (he has visions of the babies crawling over and knocking over speakers on to themselves).

A lot of things cant get done until we find out the sexes in a few weeks- I am hoping for a boy and a girl.  However, we have already picked out our cribs.  We are getting the Leksvik from Ikea for a few reasons.
One reason for this set is because we already have a dresser/changing table that matched we got a few year ago in the clearance tent for around $25.  I also like this crib because it is more compact than most convertible cribs.  The bed base can be placed at two different heights and then converts into a toddler bed.  Even thought it is more compact it fits a standard size mattress.  The set also has a matching child's table and Charis, toy box, wall shelf and wardrobe.

Another item that we have been looking into is a stroller.  From our research we know we don't want a side by side one mainly because of 2 reasons- you can't fit 2 infant cars seats on most and the side by side ones have a hard time fitting into doorways and so forth.  I have found one I like but haven't seem it in person yet, which is the Kolcraft Contours Options Tandem II Stroller, Tangerine.  We still need to keep looking and go play with them before we finalize which one we want.

What is so nice about this stroller from what we have read is this:

  • Seats easily reverse to create 6 different stroller options: children can both face parent, face each other, face forward, back to back, with front seat only and the back for extra storage, or with an infant car seat.
  • Infant car seat attachment fits most car seat brands on the market. Additional car seat attachment is sold separately to accommodate twins!
  • Both seats recline for infant's comfort
  • Easy-reach child swivel cup holders
  • Removable iPod® Dok with speaker plays baby’s music anywhere
  • Steering with two 8" front single swivel & rear never- flat wheels
  • Easy-trigger fold and convenient Free-Stand™ allow the stroller to stand upright!
  • New easy-reach tray is closer to the parent and more accessible, with an open-air compartment and deeper, ventilated cup holders
  • Other children can walk & use the hold-on handles
  • Infant head rest protects newborn's head
  • Adjustable canopy can be raised or lowered to the height of your baby
  • Large storage basket
  • Height adjustable 5-point harness for safety and padded sleeves for comfort
