I went to the doctor yesterday to have a check up and a sonogram to measure the girls. Everything is looking great! Both girls are weighing 1 pound and 8 ounces and measured 23 weeks and 4 days. My belly is measuring between 29 & 30 weeks of a single pregnancy. Their little profiles look so beautiful to me. It was amazing to see that there is only a little wall that separates them. From what I have read and from what the sonographer said they are aware of each other. I love that they have each other and always will. We have decided on their names and one is Adelaide Brooke and the other is Grace Leigh. Names were so hard for us but we loved both of these names. I can't wait to meet them but I do need some time to get everything ready before there arrival. We have painted the nursery and got a dresser and chest. I also have already purchased all my material for their bedding and drapes. My very sweet mother in law and sister in law are making all of it for them! We still have to get their cribs and all the little things to complete the nursery. My parents also ordered me a reclining swivel rocker for the nursery so I can rock them in comfort. I could not be happier.

PRECIOUS names! Love both of them. I really do think of you a lot, and try to keep up with you through Karla when we get together. Very excited for you. I will for sure keep following your blog, and praying the rest of your pregnancy continues to go well.

Your belly is definitely getting bigger! I can't wait to see it at Christmas! It's hard to believe that you're already nearly 24 weeks along. Hopefully it will fly by for you.

I am so darn sorry that I burst into tears today because had I kept it together I would have told you that you were absolutely the PERFECT first teacher for Noah. He cried for weeks prior to school starting and claimed he could never leave us. Your tender and gentle personality shows even when you are doing the tough first week of school act and he knew you liked him. Thank you.

We are going to follow along so closely because we are GIDDY about your twins. So amazing. God is good and we'll be praying.

Tara for all of us
