The fun begins...

Now, five months into this life-changing event, we've gotten to the fun part:)
Shopping!

In the last two weeks, it has been baby buying crazy at my house and I have had so much fun! As soon as I found out I was having twins I was determined to make it all very economical, which has turned out to be really difficult but, with all my family help, I think we have done a great job.

Number one rule: CONSIGNMENT, CONSIGNMENT!!
I went to two consignment sales.. one with my mother-in-law and one with my sister-in-law and Mom. Since they are spring/summer sales the only clothes we could buy were 0-3months or 12 months but I think we managed to find a few things:) Actually, not overbuying was easier than you think, since every time you find something you like, you have to make sure you can find something to go with it!
























I also got two big items, like the double snap and go frame for two infant car seats:
























And the infamous double stroller.. all of these were used so basically half price.

















Of course, the girls already have lots of new things too thanks their Mammie. And I really thank my mom, Christy and Becky for all the things they bought for us and the time we have spent shopping and planning. It has been so much fun and helped my stress level tremendously! I love you!

Last but not least, we had another ultrasound yesterday and the girls are still growing great and looking good. We didn't really get very good pictures since they are getting so big but I thought I would post another pic of myself at 5 months.























I feel like I could give birth anytime.. some people keep telling me I look so small and I can not believe it!! I already feel like I am in my ninth month!! Anyway, feel free to comment honestly. I still have over four months to go and about 50 lbs to gain so this should be interesting!

A Valentine's performance for you!

Eli sings all the time.. 90 percent of the time he is in that "silly, making up words to songs" phase but, as him mom, I still think he is adorable. Here are some of his latest tunes..
