Happy Valentine's Day!!!

I was thinking about it the other day and 3 out of the 5 Valentine's Days since we have been married, I have been largely pregnant! Not exactly the most romantic way to be, especially this year, I look like a giant blimp! :) But I wouldn't trade my kids (born and unborn) for the world. Speaking of, I had a weird dream last night that I had the twins and they pretty much just came out on their own with very little pushing, great huh! One was a girl and one was a boy,the weird part, was that they were fully clothed! :) In case any of you are wondering, we still have no idea whether they are boys or girls.

I had a doctor's appointment yesterday and she said that I am dilated to 1, but that my cervix is still very high so I could still go for another couple of weeks. She also said that they don't usually let twins go more than 37-38 weeks. So I have about 3 weeks left at the most! Part of me is very ready to have them out and in my arms and the other part of me is scared out of my mind!! My prayer for labor is that things go very quickly and that I can have them both vaginally. They are both head down so that is very encouraging! She told me that she strongly recommends an epidural because if the second baby is not in the right position after the first one is out then she might have to stick her arm way up in there and turn the baby! She said "that can be very uncomfortable", I think she might have made the understatement of the year!!
I have an ultrasound on Tuesday so I will post more baby pictures then.

This week has been a week of getting haircuts, chiropractor treatments, and painting. We all got haircuts this week, Tim has never actually paid to get his hair cut before and he looks very nice. Reese and I went to the salon as well and he did such a good job, he sat there perfectly still and even giggled a couple of times when she tickled him with the clippers. This coming from the boy who screamed and cried through the first dozen haircuts of his life. I was very proud of him! Gage also got his first haircut ever! Kim did it and he just sat there like this is no big deal. I also took the boys for chiropractor treatments and this was the first time that neither one was scared or cried. It amazes me how fast they are growing up. As for the painting, my mom and my sister painted the back bedroom that will soon be Reese's room. It looks very nice. I'm not quite sure why we have waited this long to do it but oh well. He is very excited to move into his new room!

Sorry this post has no pictures but I will try to post again soon.
