Justin and I have truly been blessed so much! We were blessed with quadruplets but 2 have became our guardian angels! We know our baby boys, Addison and Levi are watching down, helping God take care of us and Wesley and Cooper. This is the start of our journey so I have decided to make this blog for updates of all of the emotions and excitement that will happen along the way! Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers! Thanks to everyone for all of the congrats.! We are so excited and are thankful to have great family, friends and community that are wanting to help us! No one will ever understand how much it means to us! If it's your first time visiting our blog, start at the bottom and work your way up, or on the right hand side you can look by date.
Hey there blogging world. Not much to update on with the babies and I. They are already rowdy baby boys thats for sure, because they are bouncing off the walls in my belly every time I sit down and get comfortable. I can't wait for these next couple weeks to go by because that means I get to adventure off to the beach to get some muchhhh needed rest and relaxation. I must say, I can't wait! We have some exciting news this week in the baby department. My friend Rachel had her baby girl early Tuesday morning. They named her Darby James Tatum, which was a hidden name to EVERYONE until she arrived! Everyone is starting to have their babies. I know 2 other girls who have had theres and boy is it making me sooo anxious to meet the boys! I have quite a longggg way to go thats for sure. haha.
Hello everyone! Sorry for not blogging in a week! Things have been quite busy and it's quite hard to give myself time to do nothing but rest. I am constantly wanting to keep going but thanks to my family and friends, they are watching after me to make sure I get as must rest as I can. Last Monday a client of mine offered to take some photos of me. I wasn't sure how they would turn out with my large belly but they are wonderful! Here are some previews from her webpage!
How sweet are these boots! :) The 2 butterflies are in Memory of Addison and Levi.
Over the weekend I had to do hair for my other little sister's (or at least it seems she is) wedding! It was absolutely wonderful besides the MASSIVE amount of rain and me getting my car stuck then running into a bush! Let's just say by the end of the night I was never more ready to get into my bed. My best friend, Brandi was with me. She is pregnant as well so you can only imagine the hormones flying around inn the car, haha! Thank God I have people around me that aren't an emotional wreck like Brandi and I. So my car got pulled out by a tractor! haha. Here are some photos of the wonderful Bride, Dani and her bridesmaids!
Justin and I went to the doctor yesterday and it was nothing but good news! The doctor said I did need to cut back my hours at work but that I was doing wonderful. My belly is measuring at a whopping 35 weeks and I am only 24 weeks yesterday. He said I wasn't going to make it to 40 weeks (which I figured) , so it would be about 36-38 weeks when I would have the boys! That means ONLY 12 WEEKS away! Holy moly that is 3 MONTHS! I can't believe this pregnancy has absolutely flew by! Here are some photos of the belly and the boys. Baby C, (who i think will end up being Cooper) did a complete flip in the middle of the ultrasound. Guess, he is going to be the wild child.
Finally some good things have happened this week! All with a little scary things as well! We had a doctors visit on monday for our 22 week visit! Things were wonderful! Wesley and Cooper are doing great, and they are both head down. I'm starting to really get those kicks in the ribs now! For the first time, someone besides me got to feel the boys kicking! Casey (my sister) was the first and then my mom and Justin! Casey was sooo excited she started screaming and freaking out! Out of everyone she has been the one to touch my belly the most, waiting to feel that big kick. Justin kept wanting to feel them but he would just leave his hand there for a second and get frustrated, saying "ugh I don't feel anything!" haha Now that he has felt them I'm sure he will want to touch the belly all the time!
At the doctor, they told me since I stilllllll couldn't hear out of my ear I needed to go see a Ear, Nose and Throat doctor. With work I wasn't going to be able to go until next week. I had some cancellations at work and thank goodness I did, because I got to go finally get the EAR FIXED!!!!!!! They told me I wasn't deaf, just fluid so they put a tube in my ear and boy I can hear EVERYTHINGGGG now!!!!!!! The bad part was they checked my blood pressure and it was wayyyy to high. They gave me the lecture and told me to go home and rest. I was supposed to go back to work, so I moved everyone around because I knew I had to listen to the doctors orders. I don't want to cause myself any problems and I want to stay as healthy as possible for the boys. It scared me a bit because I don't want to go out on bed rest too early, so I now know I have to cut back my hours weather I like it or not. Thank God for awesome clients and employees at work!
Look at how cute this is! Casey and I had some down time and work and wanted to see if the boys could ride on the tractor with PA! :)
Over the weekend I went to a bachlorette party. We played "Pin the 'tail' on the donkey"! I had to add this to the blog...here is proof that sometimes the belly does get in the way! haha
The weekend is approaching quickly and I need it! Saturday is Prom day at the salon and I'm sure it will be nuts! Sunday I will get to have my first Mother's Day, with the boys inside of me, which is really exciting! I am also so excited for Monday! A client of mine has asked if she could photograph me for some maternity photos. I have never been one to like photos but I as excited to see what Denise has in store for me! This is def. a time in my life I will never forget so, there's nothing like photos to capture it! Whelp better get to resting before I get in trouble! :)
