Thursday mornings with Nathaniel

We have been spending the last several Thursday mornings with Uncle Jim and his little buddy, Nathaniel. Jim's friend, Simeon's wife is expecting another child, and she is more than happy to have Jim stop by their house every Thursday morning to pick Nathaniel up for a few hours at our house. Jim makes a great nanny, playing race cars and Little People in the bonus room with the kids. They have gone from building snow castles on the deck a few weeks ago to sand castles in the sandbox today.

St. Patrick's Day 2010

We went to the annual St. Pat's Day dinner at Seton again this year. Love the corned beef and cabbage! Just like last year, the weather was beautiful. So sunny that Ben and Maggie could hardly look up at the camera. They really enjoyed some time on the church playground after dinner.

The Howards

We had a nice play-date with the Howards today. It has been so long since we have seen them that it took Becca a little bit of time to warm up to our house/kids again. Once the lemonade and popcorn came out, she was right at home!

How big is baby?

(22 weeks pregnant)
Some of you who don't see me regularly have asked me to post some pictures of my giant-ness.
Although I really don't want to remember how big I am, I do agree that it's good to document.
Let me remember this the next time I get baby-fever!

Little Spring Teaser

The weather got up into the low 50s this weekend. Felt like summer. The kids hit the sand-box hard! There was still snow on the ground.

Ultrasound: 3/3/10

Here are the latest ultrasound images. The babies have really filled out, and they actually look more like little kids now. I love that I could see their faces today! Baby "A" actually seemed to smile in the photo on the left.
They are both measuring exactly the same size: 1 lb. 1 oz., and 16.5 cm from crown to rump (6.5 inches). The ultrasound tech told me that they are measuring slightly larger than the average SINGLE baby at this stage... She said I'm well on my way to delivering at least 7 & 1/2-lb twins! YIKES! I'm not going to be able to walk by the end of this pregnancy!
Because Brian is on a business trip to Arizona this week, I asked my mom if she wanted to come to the ultrasound with me. She was so excited because she has never seen an ultrasound before. She thinks both babies look just like Maggie. I'm not so sure of that, but they certainly look like Martin-children! I'm wondering if they are identical because everything about them seems so much the same.
