My babies are 2! and other news

I can't believe my tiny little babies are now 2 years old. We had a checkup this week and the doctor actual said developmently they are ahead of schedule and other than the fact that they are a little small you would never know they are preemies. Jackson actually reached the 5% in weight and 4% in height and Jameson finally hit the weight charts at 3%, though height was only 1%, but hey, my little men are a growing!

We had their birthday party today and it was a whole "Take me out to the ball game" theme with hotdogs, nachos, peanuts, homemade cracker jacks, homemade rootbeer, etc. We had so much fun and my boys now have a million balls (baseballs, footballs, soccer balls, beach balls etc.) we also got them a t-ball set and they haven't stopped playing with it. It was so much fun to have family come over and celebrate with us.

Speaking of celebrating, our "other news" is that I am pregnant! Only 6.5 weeks, but I just can't keep a secret (at least not one I'm this excited about, I can't believe I kept it for 2 weeks as it is!).  I'm due March 14th and we've had an ultrasound (this baby is all heart,). This time we only have one, but I'm happy, I was a little disappointed at first, but in the long run I think it will be better for us. My back is messed up and twin pregnancies take a lot out of you. I also think it will be easier for the boys to adjust to 1 rather than 2. I'm counting the days till Tyson can fully support our family and I can quit my job. I don't totally hate it, but I'm kind of sick of cooking for 80 and then not having the energy to feed my boys anything but poptarts for dinner (that haven't even been heated, don't judge me!). I love being a mom, it's my favorite job and I can't wait to do it full time again.

I think that's all for now, good luck to all those out there trying, miracles do happen!
