When is D DAY??

I never thought I would be ready for these twins to come. My pregnant body has officially made me WANT to have these babies here! The babies are both around 5 pounds which is on the bigger side of what they should be. From the constant heartburn, never sleeping, contractions and of course the CANKLES I am done. My nose has gotten huge too! What the heck. I really do at this point think it will be much easier taking care of twins than this. I am sure I will be proved wrong but hey at least I will have my body back. This has by far been the toughest few weeks and I know I still have a few more. I am really hoping we make it to at least 36 weeks so hopefully they will be able to come home with us. For twins we have been lucky as far as the pregnancy goes. There are lots of girls on the floor I work that are stuck in the hospital until they deliver which would be bad. Ok I am done just had to vent for a minute. We are so close.

We finally got all the bedrooms arranged in our house. Tarek moved into his new room and gave us the twins room. Both rooms got new paint and carpet they are too cute. It was a little crazy when Jon put up the cribs we freaked a little.
My cute but VERY stubborn friend Kristin through me a twin shower with my fam and friends against all my fighting. It was a lunch at Olive Garden and turned out fun. But we got such cute FUN stuff and two of everything. It was really helpful I can't believe how crazy it is to buy two of everything we need. I have pictures but I broke the large barrier so they cannot be posted. Anyways Thanks Kristin for doing it and for everyone that came. Michelle even came with her cute new baby at home!
I have seriously been so grateful for friends lately. I just can't believe how much support I have gotten from them through this time. I have so many people offer to take the kids during the day so I can rest or just come see how we are doing. We are so blessed to have so many wonderful people in our lives. We seriously consider so many family. I just am amazed by how involved and supportive everyone is. Thanks so much we love you!! You know who you are!
PS: Suzy holy cow how is Greg! What can we do?
I posted random pics just cuz!!


  1. Traci, Hang in there! It's got to be tough having two babies in you. When is your due date? Your kids are growing up so fast. We love you guys. Em

  2. I'm so glad you are doing so are the toughest woman ever! I bet that seeing two cribs in the new nursery would feel kinda overwhelming to see at first! I'm keeping you, all of you, in my prayers that everything will go as smoothly as possible for everyone. Call me if I can do anything, seriously. Oh yeah, I guess there was a house on auction right close to you guys the other day. Jason went and looked at it....I looked at the map and was like almost jumping at the close proximity to you! He's like, "Whoa....settle down woman." Anyway.....I have so much sympathy for how you must be feeling! For real, call me whenever....I'm not that far away and am always here for you. Hang in there!

  3. You are AMAZING Traci! I can't wait to see the nursery and especially the babies! You don't need to worry about us right now, but thanks :) Just take care of your health and your beautiful family. I love you tons!

  4. Hey Traci It was FUN seeing you. You look GREAT!! I understand exactly what your saying about being done with the whole pregnant thing.... I felt the same way and even the sleepless nights are better than the end of pregnancy.. I just can't imagine having two in there you are AMAZING!! Don't worry it will all be over sooner than later! :) I can't wait to meet the boys! Love ya
