NC Baby Shower

Ben and I traveled to NC this weekend for a baby shower at my mom’s house. 

Our family that lived close enough were able to attend as well as some of my high school teachers, my close friends and some long-time family friends.  My aunt even traveled down from Maine for the shower (and to see her family that lives in NC).

Baby Shower!

So I had my first baby shower this weekend, hosted by an amazing friend from the math department.  My mom flew in to attend it, and I was soo overwhelmed by all of the people who came and showered us with gifts for our wonderful twins!  Here are a few pictures from the fun day!

Another Appointment!

I so love seeing the babies up on the big screen!  Another great appointment.  Babies are looking good, growing well and I am still free from bedrest for another month!!! WOOHOO!

Baby A was estimated as measuring 1lb7oz and Baby B was estimated as measuring 1lb4oz!!! 

Trip to Maine

Instead of heading to North Carolina for my first baby shower this past weekend, Ben and I drove to Maine to see my grandmother.  It was good to see my grandparents and some of my cousins, and to spend some time with my dad’s mom.  It was difficult to see her so sick.  Chances are we wont’ be back up there again til after the babies are born, so I am really glad we got to spend some time with her!

Second Graders…

I love that my class is so excited about the twins… they ask me constantly how big the babies are now.

Conversation yesterday after looking at a ruler: “Mrs Thirey, if they are 12 inches long how do they fit in your belly?”  My response, “Well, they actually are curled up in there, they aren’t actually stretched out.” My sweet student, “if they aren’t taking up that much room, how come your belly is so big?”

Today:
The kids were saying 2 kids are enough for a family and that I shouldn’t have any more… One little girl in my class says, there are 8 kids in my family… some of the other students start telling her that is too many. :-(.  So I jumped in and said, “Mr Thirey would love to have 8 kids.”  The response from one little boy, “WITH YOU?” UGH!

Date Night with the hubby!

Ben took me out for dinner and a movie this evening!!!  He surprised me by taking me shopping for some new clothes for my ever growing belly!
