Ultrasound update

Good news, according to Dr. Cedars who did my ultrasound this morning, our baby girls are "big" and similar in size, at 2 lbs 8 oz and 2 lbs 11 oz. I am now at 27 weeks with a mental goal of reaching 38 weeks or the middle of April.

Baby Pictures

We have a few pictures from the ultrasound earlier this month.
Above are two feet pointing in opposite directions as twin A and twin B seem snuggled together in their close quarters!
Twin B was feeling photogenic while A was turned with the back of her head to the camera.

Our Nursery

I am feeling lots of kicks and strong movement in my 26th week of pregnancy.
Our nursery came together quite nicely with Case's efforts in assembling the nursery furniture with Grandpa Ivan's assistance at Christmas time, and then Case gave the finishing touch by recently hanging the curtains and quilt.
These warm Canadian booties are a gift from my friend Heather.
This comfortable rocker-swivel-recliner has already come in handy as some nights I spend part of the night sleeping here, as I search around for a comfortable sleep position. Although people tell me my tummy looks small, as they expect me to look much bigger with twins, but no worries I still have three months to go!
The nursery theme is barnyard friends with lots of sheep, ducks and bunnies! The nursery mascot is Heineken, a very cute stuffed sheep we adopted while visiting Holland in 2007. (He sits by the left side of the crib below.)
And yes, we only have one crib set up for our twin girls. We hear while they are small they might like sleeping close to each other. Spending time in the nursery, it seems a little more real that we have two little girls on the way!

Doc Bernstein's Ice Cream Lab, Arroyo Grande, CA

The best ice cream in town is served up at Doc Bernstein's....
and the flavors they create are well worth a few samples before making a selection!
After a few samples, Lauren chooses Birthday Cake ice cream.
