I had my 20 week appointment today. Hard to believe I’m already half way there! Everything went well at the appt. I’m measuring just right and the baby’s hearbeat sounded great. My next appt. is in 4 weeks.
After speech class today, we go home and I unbuckled the twins and went to open the front door. I put up their folders and then look back and see Riley playing with the mirror. I told him to stop, but before I could get to him he had already broken it off. The mirror is attached to the front window and will require a trip to a repair shop to get it fixed.
Jared and Riley are cracking me up this morning. They are outside playing Go Diego Go. They are up in their “rescue center” (which is the fort on the play equipment). Jared is baby jagaur and Riley is Darth Vader (complete with the Darth Tater mask and hat.)
Kayli got braces today. They are only on her few permanate teeth. They will add bands as her other teeth come in. She got orange and black rubberbands on them for Halloween. She read all the paperwork about what she can and can’t eat and is very serious about following it to the letter. When she went to brush her teeth before going to bed, she brought the instructions the orthodontist had given her for brushing her teeth with the braces up with her to make sure she did it right.
Today the twins ran into the class, said “Bye Mama” and started talking the teacher about the pictures they had brought for sharing. Looks like they have finally adjusted to going to the speech class. I started using the incentive of playing at the park afterwards if they were good in class. That seems to have really motivated them to participate in the class. On Tuesday as we were driving by the park, after playing there because they were good in class, Riley said “I like that park, it helps me be good at speech class.”
We had the 20 week u/s today. The baby is health and has all the right parts in all the right places. The girls are so excited that they are going to have a baby sister. Aidan didn’t seem to care one way or the other. The twins said, “I don’t want a baby anything!”
