A +

We don't go in for a blood test until Tuesday BUT.....

Almost two weeks ago we did the Trigge.r shot and now we have a BEAUTIFUL plus sign showing on our p-test! (It looks a lot darker in person and we even saw a hint of a plus sign yesterday morning as well!) We are kind of in disbelief at the moment as this whole process has been pretty laid back and worry-free. Life is just SO busy that the two week wait flew by and now we are sitting pretty looking at a perspective sister or brother for A and R! We wouldn't be being completely honest if we didn't mention that we can't wait to see the B.eta numbers but more importantly an ultrasound to see how many sacs are in there. With M having 3 mature eggs 2 days before we triggered along with many smaller ones, it just makes you wonder. As we know it isn't likely, the shows like "J & K + 8" and "Ta.ble for 10" makes our minds wonder. Either way, we are pregnant and did a bit of a "We're having a baby" dance with the twins this morning. They were equally excited (although they are always full of smiles when we walk into their nursery in the morning).

As we mentioned it's been a busy few weeks. For one, the girls went to their first fair. A hadn't napped and we knew they would both be going to bed after their normal 7pm bedtime so we didn't really know what to expect but they did GREAT! It helped that we had M's mom and 2 cousins with us along with J's brother. More hands to help but the girls had a great time people watching and trying tidbits of fair food (primarily a "turkey leg" and some ice cream). A got EXTREMELY excited when she saw huge lion and tiger stuffed animals hanging from a game vendor. J luckily captured a snapshot of it. That girl LOVES animals.

They also went on their first ride - the carousel. J sat on a horse with R and M with A. A LOVED the ride but R clung to J tighter than ever and whined the entire time. We felt so bad but J couldn't even get down off the horse because it was constantly moving up and down and... when the heck did they start going so high off the ground?!?! A was holding on to the pole with one hand and trying to pet the horse with the other. That will be the child going on all the fair rides with M in the future and R will be holding purses with J ;)

R is really walking around quite well these days. She has great balance! Yesterday A took a few steps with a little cheering and guiding! We had her hold onto our rocker and we pushed the couch ottoman out a bit and cheered her on to push off and take the necessary 2 steps to the ottoman. It worked and she felt SOO rewarded when she did it! When A is excited about something, she squeals exactly like "Carrie B.radshaw" from SATC. It is the cutest thing in the entire world!

Yesterday the girls went to their first friend "kidd.ie party". It was lots of fun as our friend has acquired quite a few outside toys over the past 2 years of her daughter's life. They played for quite some time in a plastic "little t.ikes" house with 2 other little boys. It is interesting to see the interaction between other kids and our twins. The 2 boys (not related) kept stealing toys from each other and our girls. Our girls didn't cry or mind as I think they are used to it since they (mainly R) always steal toys from each other. But if a toy was taken from one of the boys who are both only children, cries insued. It was interesting to watch.

R has her top left tooth breaking through which has made her a little whiny but all in all she has been pretty good with her teething although she hasn't had any teeth break through since her first 2 bottom over 5 months ago. We didn't think she was EVER going to get more teeth! R still has 2 tops and 2 bottoms.

A couple more days until we get our first round of betas... BRING ON GOOD NUMBERS PLEASE!!!

Congrats on the BFP! I will be keeping my fingers crossed for a high beta...

So glad the girls enjoyed their day at the fair and their first party. We also noticed the different reactions following toy stealing between our twins and other singletons. I think they are forced to get used to it alot sooner than other kids. They don't cry anymore, they either find something else to play with or chase their brother and take it back. ;)
