I have been feeling pretty good the past 2 weeks. Jack and I both got over our colds for the most part, and started getting our energy back. We attended a marriage retreat with some of our church friends in San Antonio 2 weekends ago, and that was a wonderful getaway. Jack has been busy hunting every weekend (except that one) and so far has had luck with 1 deer. He is definitely trying to get all the hunting in before next year rolls around....I think he realizes it will not be as easy to leave this time next year. Oh, and I got a new car!! White Chevy hubby did so good finding a great deal and working with Sandlin in Mt. Pleasant was easy as ever.

Thanksgiving was wonderful. I spent the first part of the week with family in East Texas and really enjoyed seeing friends and family who I had not seen in a while. I was able to see my precious nephew Will and visit with my Dad and Denise. By the way Will calls me "Aunt Sissy" and it has to be the cutest thing I have heard yet! I also got to spend more time with my step sister and she bought me my first baby gift....a diaper bag!! I am so excited to get it in the mail. I know you are thinking "really, you are excited about a bag," but those who know me know I love bags and picking this out was just fun. I decided on a backpack style, as I figured with babies in arms it will be difficult to be weighed down by a bag. This one has major pockets and is not gender specific, it was hard not to go with the pinks!! Here it is!! Thank you Misty!!

At the end of my East Texas trip I also got to visit with some of my girlfriends and just hang out. I got some great mommy tips and ideas for the nursery. I also came home from this trip with a day bed and lots of great baby to toddler toys. My Uncle Kemp and Aunt Dana blessed me with some things they had in storage. I am so grateful!! Thank you!!

Thanksgiving was yummy and the food stayed down...success! I had a great time with family and enjoyed watching the Cowboys and the A&M game. Here the picture Jack took before I stuffed my face with Thanksgiving lunch.

And, while the game was not in the Aggies favor, we at least gave t.u a little run for their money. I was a happy Aggie.

I ventured out later in the afternoon on black Friday and started my registries at Babies 'r Us and Wal-Mart. Let me tell you...this was quite the experience. I was at Babies 'r Us for nearly 2 hours just making sure I didn't over scan or under scan...tried to think of needing 3 of everything is quite overwhelming. It was fun though and it is a good start.

We head back to the Dr. this coming Wednesday, and HOPEFULLY find out if we have boys, girls or a mixture. I can't wait! I will post when we get new pictures. Thank you for all the love, prayers and support.

Veteran's Day, A Great Report!

Well we have made it to 12 weeks!!! And what a great day for the veteran daddy to get a good report! The first tri-mester is wrapping up and the chance for miscarriage has dramatically decreased. Praise God!! The first appointment was with the high risk specialist whose main goal was to check for downs syndrome on each baby. The babies checked out great and each has strong heartbeats and measured the proper length. She also measured my cervix which she said look "really strong." Of course with 3 this will be very important because the longer the babies stay in, the better. Unless something comes up during the pregnancy, I will not see the high risk doctor again.

We then headed over to see Dr. Romberg for my regular appointment. We got to see the babies again and Kari, the sonographer took some great shots of A, B and C's profiles! We could see their little hands and watched them move all around. It is amazing they are moving so much and I can't feel it yet. It was awesome. Dr. Romberg scheduled me for the H1N1 shot and told me to go ahead and get a flu shot. I also started getting a head cold this week so she let me know what over the counter medicine's I can take. She was satisfied with my progress and will see me again in 3 weeks. We are hoping we might be able to maybe tell the sexes of the babies then, but it will probably be at our 18 week appointment where we can really see.

We took Jack's granny back home this week, so I can now work on getting the nursery started. I found a baby bed I really like at Lone Star Baby store in Dallas and found precious bedding for a girl. Trying to still figure out if the babies are a mix how to decorate, but I think I am going to go with pink, brown, and green and blue, brown and green mix. Need to still find the bedding, but I think those colors will come together well.

Multiples Manual

Well I have been blessed with about 8 awesome books from a triplet mom in the Dallas area. I am so grateful and have already started reading and learning! Here is a quick fact for you: On average from the time the babies are newborn until potty trained, the household will change 24,060 diapers!!!!! WOW, if that doesn't put it into perspective I don't know what will.

We had a great weekend. I started feeling much better on Saturday and actually got a lot done around my house. I am starting my "things I want to do before the babies get here" list. Like washing windows, steam cleaning carpet, organizing the laundry room, those fun things. Halloween was fun! We took the first baby belly pic, and here is another of our costumes. I was a good witch and Jack was a sniper. We went to our friend Sonya and Justin's and had a cook out, hay ride and tons of stuff for kids! It was a blast.

Sunday was relaxing and again filled with lots of reading. I organized my cook book and them got to meet my high school BFF, Alex, for dinner at Chili's. I got to bed early and hoping for another great week! Our next doctors appointment is November 11th, and we will see our regular doctor as well as the high risk specialist. I am sure I will have fun news to report after that.
