"A final gospel truth that will contribute to our understanding of and hence the quality of our marriages relates to the degree in which we involve the Savior in our relationships as husbands and wives. As designed by our Heavenly Father, marriage consists of our first entering into a covenant relationship with Christ and then with each other. He and his teachings must be the focal point of our togetherness. As we become more like him and grow closer to him, we will naturally become more loving and grow closer to each other"

Whats been going on!

...23 1/2 weeks...

I decided I better keep better track of this pregnancy so later on I will have something to compare it to when we have more kids (someday WAY down the road!) I haven't ever recored how I feel, things I crave, etc..  So better late than never! 

We are slowly getting the nursery started. Madden has his crib and bedding up and Bostyn should have hers up this week! My mom got us a travel system that the car-seats can click into. Which should be nice even though it feels like your pushing a boat around!! We found our bedding on Amazon.com, it was hard to find two that were the same pattern just different colors! But we love what we found! 

Rob hard at work building his little man's crib!

Bostyn's Bedding

Madden's bedding!

I am thinking I want to paint the green stripes behind his bed and pink ones behind hers! Also with their names above the cribs in vinyl lettering! I LOVE VINYL! 

As for me, I have been feeling good! Every day that goes by it does get harder to work and do house chores but I just use a heat pad every night and it seems to help. I was told by me Dr. that after thanksgiving he doesn't want me working anymore.. which at first I was super put out about but now I am ok with it! My back hurts every day And I don't want any stress from that putting me into an early labor.
People say I look small but I don't see that! I just know how to hide it well! At my Dr. visit last week I had a reality check when I had to get on the scale! I have already gained 25 pounds and I still have a ways to go! I'm not one to be shy about my weight and I never care if people know how much I weight.. not a big deal to me so I will be sure to give everyone a grand total at the end of all this! 
I still can sleep at night but do wake up about 3-5 times from movements and bathroom breaks! But I could stay up all night seeing and feeling their little kicks! I think I have been having Braxton hicks? Im not positive but about 5 times a day my stomach gets super tight and I can't really move or breath! I notice it more when I am super busy (which is most days) 
Thats about it though. I eat to much and workout to little! I can't wait to meet these little nuggets and hold them and kiss them! My life has changed since the second I found out they were on their way.. I just want to be the best I can be for them.... 

Robbie is just as excited! He rubs my belly all the time and he has got to feel them kick a few times. More than anything I just can't wait to see him holding our babies for the first time. Thats what I look forward to the most out of all of this! He is going to be such a great and fun dad! I just adore him and appreciate all hid hard work. We don't see much of each other these days between work and school. He is a busy BUSY guy and he is worn out.. The picture below literally he feel asleep in 1 minute. I was talking to him.. walked into our room.. came back out and this is what I found!! 

Anyway! Sorry this was long! 

Decor for the nursery..

Every time I have heard this song I always just cry! I think it is so sweet and I want to get it printed in vinyl and framed and hang it in the twins room! 

You're a little piece of heaven 
You're a golden ray of light 
And I wish I could protect you 
From the worries of this life 
But if there's one thing I could tell you 
It's no matter what you do 
Hold to Jesus
He's holding on to you

The world will try to tell you 
That might is more than right 
That beauty's on the outside 
And being good's a losing fight 
But remember what I've told you 
Because the world will make you choose 
Hold to Jesus
He's holding on to you

Hold on to Jesus 
Cling to His love 
Rest deep in His mercy 
Whenever things get rough 
Don't lose sight of His goodness 
And don't ever doubt this truth 
That when you hold on to Jesus 
He's holding on to you

Hear me dear Jesus 
Rock these little ones to sleep 
Keep them close when their scared 
And give them grace when they are weak 
I know they'll stumble 
But I know they'll make it through 
If you hold to them just like 
You said You'd do 
Hold them Jesus
And they'll hold on tight to You

5 months down!

We got to see our little babies again today and have them all checked out! It was so fun!! My mom came up so she could see her grand-babies too! So far things look great! We had a 100% conformation that they are boy and girl, which we couldn't be happier about! I am struggling with a cute nursery idea as fas as bedding for both of them that matches but thats boy and girlie!! So any suggestions or ideas are welcome! 

Our little girl was a peach during the visit and did everything the tech needed her to! She has a good strong heart beat and a very round belly! Weighs more than her brother so far and is so cute! I wish the pictures were as clear as what we got to see but I was just in awe the whole time! To me she looks just like Robbie with her long face and perfect lips and nose! ADORABLE!  

Now little man was another story!! AGAIN he just didn't want to cooperate! After he spread his legs that was about it! Im talkin' he would complete flip over EVERY time the tech was about to get a clear shot! Stubborn already??? Hmm... :) He just wants to be sure his sister doesn't get all of the attention I guess!

Some people think its to soon to tell the names we are going to use but I don't really care! And there are those that don't care for the names we've decided to use and that's ok too! We love them and they both have meaning to Robbie and myself and that's what matters right!!?! :) I named him and Rob choose her name! So from here on out we will refer to them not as baby a and b or the boy and girl but:
