Our sweet baby boy will be named Bradley Boone. We will call him Boone. David has rallied for this name since Lucas was born! :o)

Our little princess' name will be Carly Grace. We will call her Carly. :o)

Lucas has already learned to say "Boo" and "Car-Car" and point to my belly. It is hard to believe that they may be here in just a few months... time to get some serious work done on the nursery!

They're NOT identical after all!

Baby A's profile was a lot easier to see...
He measured 18 weeks 1 day and weighs an estimate of 8 oz.

The last two are of Baby B... she was a little camera shy.
She measured 17 weeks 2 days and weighs 7 oz.

We had an ultrasound appointment with our perinatologist at Northside this afternoon. Things looked a little different than at our last ultrasound... This time there was a clear "mountain peak" between the amniotic sacs (this was not visible at the last appointment and it was one of the factors leading to the conclusion that the twins were identical). Also, there appeared to be 2 placentas and the genders are different!.. that means fraternal twins. Baby A is a boy and Baby B is a girl!!!!! We are over the moon!!!!

We All Scream for ICE CREAM!

Camera phone pic... can't get it to flip. :o(

I had another one of my cravings last weekend... ICE CREAM (sugar free of course). David and I always try to get Lucas to taste our ice cream, but he is usually turned off by the coldness... not this time! The lady at Scoops insisted on Lucas having his own cone. At first, he just wanted to wave it around and pretend it was a microphone, but after I "accidentally" bumped the cone to his lips and he got a good taste... it was ON! He ate the entire thing, cone and all! It won't be our last visit to Scoops this summer!

Being Silly

Unloading the dishwasher... EVERYTHING must come out! lol
Clean up, clean up, everybody clean up...
We are having a ball being together this summer! I know I am bias, but Lucas has to be the sweetest child ever created! :o)

He had his 18 month check-up with his ped. last Thursday. He weighed 26 lbs. 12 oz. (70th percentile) and he was 33.5 inches tall (80th percentile). Dr. Lisa was pleased with his eating, drinking, and overall development. She was surprised at how well he was speaking... that is until she started touching him with the stethoscope... he did not want any part of that... he screamed the whole rest of the time. :o( We had a few errands to run in town after that and he acted as if nothing had happened. He ran in central office with me to pick up some paperwork and by the time we left, he had the ladies in payroll wrapped around his little finger... he carried out a prize in each hand (for getting his shot at the ped's office). It was too cute~ he insisted on them sitting in the floor to play, and if you know Lucas... I mean insisted. If you do not comply with his "sit, sit" and pointing, he will grab you with both hands and pull you with all his might.. lol.

He is also becoming more aware of all this talk about babies. He sometimes out of the blue, will come raise my shirt and say "bA-bY" and then kiss my belly. We are going to try to get it on video, but you know how children are.. they never do what you want them to on camera. ;o)
