Seahorse Dads

So, last night, we were getting ready for bed and I asked David to give me one of his fabulous back and shoulder rubs. He's so sweet. And it was amazing. And I leaned back on him and told him he always makes me feel better and I'm excited about our girls. And he hugged me and said, "Me, too. And I wish I was a seahorse for you." Sigh. Such a wonderful man. (In case you didn't know, the male seahorses are the ones that carry the babies until they're born.) I hugged him back and giggled at the thought of us as seahorses...with our curly little they are.

I've been trying to get some video of the girls going crazy in mah belly, but inevitably, as soon as I get the video camera out, they settle down. Here is a little of what I got last night. They were much crazier earlier on, but this will have to do. Also, on the one where you can see my skin, that spot on my tummy isn't some chocolate I dropped. (I wish). It's an angioma. ANGIOMA. Sounds so formidable. Just a blood vessel that poked through. It's pretty much dumb.

Warning (for Shane & Brooks): It's creeeeeeeeepy.


  1. OH MY GOODNESS. Seriously. My kid was so active when she was int he womb, but multiplying that by two! They are honest to goodness partying in there...I mean, really!! I swear you can see a foot once in a while too...CRAZY!!

    You look good really (and this is from someone that doesn't know you, but just through the photos that you have posted of youself!) :) But I really mean it, you are looking great. its a lot of work to be doing what you are, so keep it up.

    As weird as it sounds, I think there will be moments you'll miss feeling those babies inside of you. It is just such a blessed experience.

    Merry Christmas! Can't wait to see when the ladies make their debut!

  2. Okay. I AM SCREAMING OVER HERE! I mean, Levi moved a lot and I could see him all the time, but I am totally like making out arms and legs and stuff in your tummy! IT'S LIKE THEY'RE GOING TO POKE THROUGH!!!!!!!!!!! My gracious. Amazing.

  3. That's messed up.
    It's so similar to every alien movie...


I like your comments.
Mom, keep it clean.
Have a fabtastic day!
