No baby yet...

So my SIL is still pg. They scraped her membranes (whatever that means, sounds gross though) a few days ago and still nothing. Hopefully soon!

As for us, we've been busy getting the girls bedroom together. Well, I've been busy. A basically did everything in G's room so it's only fair that I paint and decorate the girls room. It's so hard picking out wall colors and bedding. I decided to go with neutral colors on the walls and more girlie colors in the bedding and wall art. We only bought one crib thus far, it's still unknown if the girls are our forever daughters. We figure they can share for a few more months. But last night was interesting, the girls are just over three months and they are starting to move all over, even trying to roll. Anyhow, A got up about 1am to change and feed them, he said they were in a figure seven...with SM (the older and bigger twin) kicking SR in the head, could it be sibling rivalry already (wink,wink)? The crib is definitely much bigger than the pack and play they were sleeping in. We'll just have to put each girl at each end instead of side by side. BTW, if you can't already tell, I'm in love. The girls are beautiful and I'm attached big time. I just look at them in awe, they are such miracles.

As for G, he is doing awesome! He is getting so big and talking up a storm. I'm truly amazed at his ability to express himself verbally. This past Saturday was his first Sports Sampler class at the YMCA. He will learn about basketball, soccer and bowling....which is right up his alley (no pun intended). He absolutely loves bowling. He bowls on the Wii and he also has the F.isher P.rice bowling set that he can't get enough of. A, myself, the twins and G all trekked down to the Y on Saturday to watch G meet his coach and all of his new friends. G was a little shy but he did really well. No meltdowns, except near the end...he did not want to turn in the basketball or leave. But overall he did great! A and I decided that we'll keep him in some sort of class at the Y just to get him accustom to social interaction. Here are some pictures Daddy took Saturday. G wanted me to play with him, A was a little sad about it but he understands that G is a Mama's boy...lol.

G and I practicing passing the ball...



G going for a shot...



G loved the hoop, he couldn't make the shot but he kept trying. G's cousin N has an old hoop just like this one, we are going to clean it up and bring it home. Practice makes perfect...lol.



G runs non-stop, he has so much energy. I wish we could bottle it.



A group picture...if you notice the lady standing up with the blue t-shirt on, she fosters too. It's so nice to meet other foster parents, who truly understand. I'm sure we'll be talking in the weeks to come.



G when he realized the class was over...so sad.

Looks like you guys had so much fun!

I haven't commented yet, Dee, but I do have to tell you that I think so much of you and what you are doing for the girls. I know - they give back to you so much love but they are two lucky girls and I'm praying that all turns out for the best.

Hugs,
Laura :)

That looks like so much fun! I can't wait for Alex to get to do stuff like that. I am glad the girls are doing well! I think about you guys often!

Ewww..scraping membranes doesn't sound very fun. Hope your SIL has an uneventful labor and delivery and that it happens soon!

The class looks like it was fun. It's a great idea for little ones. G is too cute!
