Doctor Appt. Update

I am 28 weeks and 2 days today! Getting closer to the big day! Big Guenter, Maddie, and my mother-in-law Lynn joined me for my appointment with the perinatal consultants. Everything looked great both girls are measuring at 28 weeks and 1 day. Kendall is 2 lbs. 11 oz and Kylie is 2 lbs. 10 oz.. My cervix looked great so he thought it would be okay to be seen in 4 weeks, which means I am having a great twin pregnancy. Kendall is head down and Kylie is breech with her feet by Kendall's head.
Below is a picture of Kylie, followed by Kendall. We thought Kendall looked a little like Guenter when he was a baby. Kylie's eyes are open so it is a little freaky looking. God is great, and we continue to pray for them to stay another 9 weeks in my stomach!

We are very exicted Guenter passed his second CPCU exam, we have been praying for good results. He is now done with two of eight. I am so proud of him he worked really hard studying for this! We also had fun celebrating with a dinner and lunch out, rare around here!
Little Guenter had his baseball party, and was so excited to get his trophy! He was so cute, as soon as he got home he placed it on his dresser next to his other trophy. He also requested that I leave the lights on so he could see it while he slept. He can't wait for Spring Baseball so he can get another trophy. Guenter has also been a lot of fun, constantly asking me about the girls. He daily will approach my stomach and say "Hi Kendall and Kylie".
Maddie has little interest in the girls, but of course she is 2. I asked her if she would share her blankets with Kendall and Kylie (mind you she carries three at a time) and her answer was "No" of course! Sometimes I ask her if she has a baby in her tummy and she says "No, I have girl in my tummy" ... she is so precious!
Guenter and Maddie are looking forward to Halloween, Maddie is Tinkerbell and Guenter is supposed to be Batman, but I think he would like to wear his Spiderman costume for the third year in a row. Hey, it saves us money! I will post pictures this weekend of the candy brawl!

Okay I am finally going to do this!!

Hello Everyone in Blog Land! I have been wanting to do this forever and since the twins will be here soon, I thought why not delay! I am 27 weeks tomorrow and can not wait for them to be here. We are thinking about 10 more weeks to go with 11 weeks being max. That would but the arrival between December 27th and January 3rd. I am hoping for this year so we can get $2K from uncle sam from both girls :-) ! This is the latest picture of the belly, we took it last night.

Guenter is 4 1/2 and growing like a weed. He is in preschool 5 days a week. Every morning he wakes up and asks if he can go to school this morning! That makes us know, he is ready. It is so wonderful to see him so excited! He is reading around 100 words and can read sentences with those words. This is Guenter at his school's Pumpkin Patch. He is also playing baseball this year, which is so much fun!

This is Guenter and his best friend Gracey at the school Petting zoo. They are inseparable. I think this is his first "crush" .. they are so cute together. Guenter can not wait to get school every morning to see Gracey.Maddie is 2 1/2 and all girl. We call her our little model, always ready to pose for the camera. She loves princess stuff and stuffed animals. She is not in school yet, but will be next year. She is different from Guenter in so many ways ... very independent. Which is good and bad.

Big Guenter is busy getting ready for a big exam. He is getting his CPCU license, which takes 4 years. He is also the assitant coach for Guenter's baseball team. He works so hard for our family, I don't know how he does it all! We love him for it!
