I have been informed that it is time for me to post an updated picture of myself to my blog (good thinking Chris and Bryan!). I would have to say that I tend to agree! I feel quite a bit bigger than last week. It must mean that the babies are doing well and are growing big and strong (even though they aren't even an inch long yet!).
At 8 weeks gestation, babies are on average about the size of a raspberry (only .63 inches). They already have little arm and leg buds and are moving around like crazy inside of momma. How AMAZING is that?!
And how do two little raspberry sized babies make me look this big??? LOL=). I think I look WAY bigger in the first pic than I do in the second pic! I have to keep in mind that tops no longer fit the same way they used to, so in order to get a good view of my "baby bump" I need to put my hands up there to show you where you should be looking, and yeah, it bumps out a little bit!!
And the cutest thought of the day - my Aunt Chris and Uncle Tim have twin boys - Bryan and Justin - and Bryan said today that he can't wait until our twins are 5 years old so he can play soccer with them! How perfect is that??? I too am excited for the babies to play soccer with their twin 2nd cousins. That will be an AWESOME day! I'm so happy you are excited for the babies Bryan!! =).
I hope you all are having a blessed week! With Easter on Sunday it is an excellent reminder to give thanks for all of the wonderful blessings God has provided us. I thank God every day for the wonderful gift of life that we have been given, for my wonderful husband and family, good jobs, and nice home, and I of course cherish every day I get to spend with the babies (even if they do make me incredibly nauseous)!! I hope you all are well and are just as blessed as we are!!
