Now for some back blogging...Halloween was almost a Hallowasn't for us. Owen pretty much hated his costume and Jake and I both had a really big day so if it hadn't been for Ben, Aubrey, and the girls coming over to get us going we probably would have stayed home all night. But when Owen saw his cousins dressed up he decided his pirate costume wasn't all that bad so we headed out and made a few stops. Jake and I didn't dress up but we did have some really good ideas! If we weren't so worn out we would have done it. I was going to be a Double Stuffed Oreo and Jake a tall glass of milk! (: Get it...double stuffed? Would have been great!

So yes I'm having twins and just like this blog it has kind of been coming in second behind the house. People say all the time, I just can't imagine having two babies. My reply is, neither can I! Its our reality buying things in twos and trying to come up with two names but I seriously don't even know how to actually prepare to have them here. As uncomfortable as being pregnant can be, I'm pretty sure that is going to be the easy part! Its going to be tough but I am pretty excited to snuggle my two little girls. Another thing people ask me is if it feels different being prego with two. Uh yes it does. Actually it hasn't been until recently that that has been the case. I've felt really good so I can't complain. But my goodness these two are wrestling or doing jumping jacks or something in there! It's pretty crazy. I also feel so much more tired this time around. Its been kind of hard finding a balance between taking it easy and still getting all the daily house stuff done. In fact my house is most often in shambles. I walk over stuff all day just because I'm too lazy to bend over and pick whatever it is up! I also have to go to dr. appointments more often. I'm already going once a week plus I have to start getting non-stress tests at the hospital so they can monitor the babies. I get to see my little ones all the time because we have an ultrasound every check-up to check their heart beat. I have already had two super-hootie ultrasounds at the hospital where they go through and measure each little body part and will probably have one more in a couple of weeks. Ultrasound is always so cool but these ones take an hour and a half minimum. It seems to be a challenge for the tech to be able to keep track of which limb belongs to which baby because they don't hold still very well. (: Anyway, that gets a little uncomfortable after awhile and I usually have to stop for potty breaks! So its been a fun and also crazy experience so far. One night Jake said it almost like winning the lottery! How many people get to have twins. (: I thought that was pretty funny!
Owen has had a rough couple of weeks. Colds, coughs, teething, and our personal fav, hand foot and mouth. But he has been a little angel the last three days and quite frankly we deserve it after so many rough weeks!! He turned 2 at the beginning of October and had a really fun birthday. The little tikes police car we gave him totally tanked for the first couple of days...he didn't want to get in it and said no, I scared. Maybe it was the sirens or maybe he thought it would drive off with him in it but he no likey at first. His favs were the monster truck that makes all sorts of noise and chants "Bigfoot! Bigfoot!" (which he chants as well, thanks Em) and all the trucks he got. He loves them!
We also took his binki which wasn't fun at all but has been such a good thing, I wish we had done it sooner. He is also sleeping in a big boy bed and has transitioned so well. He is getting all grown up but he will always be my baby boy!
So if you have made it this far actually reading my blog than you are pretty good. I usually just look at the pictures. I didn't mean to go off and write so much but I obviously had a lot on my mind! Life is only going to get more crazy but we have so much to be thankful for!

Thank goodness for the sweet Super Nintendo Jake and I scored for free! Isaac is pretty much the master of Mario now.
These are just random pics of Owen cus I think he is the cutest ever. Jake likes to wrap him up tight in a burrito and I got a kick out of it, obviously Owen did too. (: The second pic is Owen after he ran through the sprinklers one night. The little stink!

Me and Nic were always "the little girls" in our fam and now I'm going to have my own set of "little girls". I love how Tynlee is accentuating my tummy. (:
Crashing after a fun-filled week. He is so BIG! We love having fam come to visit and can't wait for next time!
P.S. Jake and I bought a house and we finally get to close and move in this coming week! Yea! It has some quirks we are going to have to take care of but we are really excited to be in our very own little home Wohoo!

She did not want to wake up to play with me.
Tyns with her spunky big sis Vienna.
The cute little fam!
She was not too happy at this point but she was nice enough to let me get a pic in her dress (:
The Moms with their girls.
I'm pretty sure I'm her favorite aunt!
Owen playing with his buddy Peyton! They are 10 days apart.
On the way home we stopped at Upper Falls in Yellowstone just to get out of the car and stretch a bit. Owen thought it was pretty cool but didn't want to get too close to the edge.
The last stop we made on the way home was Wal-mart to get Owen a basketball hoop. He absolutely loves basketball and goes crazy whenever he sees a hoop. That didn't go over well at the blessing when the overflow was open and he could see the hoops from where we were sitting...needless to say we spent most of the time in the hall. (:
Check out that follow-through! His Uncle Heath would be so proud that O is shooting left-handed but Jake is working really hard to change that. I guess he doesn't want Owen to be a southpaw!
