We finally got some pictures of the pregnant belly! Justin did a mini photo shoot and I must say I'm impressed with some of the shots he got. I didn't know he had it in him! (Although he reminded me he DID take advance photo in High School:)

So here I am, 17 weeks pregnant with the little double decker. Hopefully we find out what we're having on Tuesday! I have been so giddy about it I can't even stand it anymore. They better be able to let us see or else I think I might die of anticipation. I have officially changed my vote
from 2 boys to a boy and a girl. Either way, I know it's not two girls (even though that would be lovely). There is at least one boy in there.

I have been thinking over the past few weeks of how blessed we are and have been counting all the many blessings. We both have good jobs, especially my job that is almost stress free and flexible allowing me to relax and not stress my body out during this pregnancy. I have plenty of time to sleep and take care of myself. Just has been doing well with Real Estate and continues to enjoy his job. We're able to pay for Justin's tuition semester after semester. He got a raise, I got a raise, we found an amazing deal on our townhouse, my brother is renting our condo so we're not forced to pay two mortgages till it sells, we keep finding deals on stuff we need. I have two humans growing inside of me and all is well. We have amazing friends and families. We're healthy, we're happy and so glad that we have prepared ourselves emotionally, financially and
spiritually to start a family so that this is truly a joyous occasion and not a stressful one. It's just so crazy how things work out in life.

I find it entertaining hearing people's reactions when we tell them we're having twins. Most are really excited, some say how jealous they are, but there have been a few that say things like "Oh, I would have cried if I found out I was having twins when I was pregnant" or "Oh my gosh, good luck!" and give me a pat on the shoulder. Now I'm sure it's because they're remembering how hard it was with their one baby, and maybe we really don't know what we're getting ourselves into, but we are truly so so so excited! It is such an adventure and blessing to be bringing two of Heavenly Father's children into our family. We couldn't be more stoked. I can't help but think with Justin by my side, how muchfun this is going to be!

Below are a couple of my favs Justin took. We'll keep you posted on what
we're having if we find out on Tuesday

Beach House Oceanside

What a fun getaway this was! We rented a Beach House in Oceanside Cali right by the ocean with Justin's family.
Enjoying the sunset...

Justin and his parents Jim and Patti.
Justin and Hannah worked on this "Shamu" with a little help from me and Jim. I think it turned out pretty awesome! We had to search for the perfect rocks and we didn't have a bucket so we had to haul them using our towel.
Sea World!!!!! I felt like a little kid and loved it! I haven't been to Sea World since I was pretty little. We saw almost every single one of the shows and almost every sight to stop and play, such as the star fish holding pond!

Me and Hannah. This is the beach from the above pictures, only at high tide. During the day there was a little bit of beach, but by late afternoon/evening it came all the way up to the rocks!
Stairs leading down to the "Beach" which was non-existent at high tide.

The fam: Me, Justin, Megan, Jason, and Hannah
The beach house. It was pretty little and we were pretty cramped together in there. I should have taken a picture of me and Justin's room. It had bunk beds and barely enough room to walk, but it made the adventure that much funner! Thanks Jim and Patti for planning such a fun vacation!
