So we have a couple of updates on the twins for you. Jess & TJ went to get an ultrasound yesterday, and it looks like the twins are going to be identical! They aren't 100% sure.. but that's what it looks like. I cannot wait to meet them. I still laugh every time I think about it or look at Jess with her stomach. Two babies. Jess just told me the other day how early on in her pregnancy, before she knew she was having twins, she said to more than one person, "I don't know how anyone manages twins.. I could never have twins."
It is so difficult to not buy every baby boy outfit that I see. They are so little! I just washed all the boys' new clothes the other day, and I literally laughed out loud every time I folded a onesie.. they are so teeny tiny!!! I have also been holding two baby dolls at the same time pretending they are the twins.. I have no free hands.. I don't understand how I will do anything.
We were all talking the other night about whether or not we will ever leave the house when the twins get here. It is difficult enough to get the girls out the door. "Clara, you can't wear sandals it's cold outside." "Clara put your shirt back on, we have to go." "Cadence, you don't need your scarf, mitttens and hat today.. it's 60 degrees outside." "Please please please just put your boots on now, Cadence." Cadence is a little talker just like her daddy. She always has something she wants to tell you before she does what you're asking her to do.."Um, Sisis..actually I have something to tell you.. when I went to Mimi and Pa's house I had a butter and jelly sandwich." .. ok, great Cadence now let's get your stuff on. ..."Although, Sisis, I don't eat the crust because I don't like it." Ooook, Cadence, that does seem like vital information that I needed before we walk out the door.
Sometimes I struggle to say Cadence & Clara.. it occasionally comes out 'Clarence' or 'Cladence'. I never had that problem until we went on vacation with Nick & Kameron Swank, and Kam accidentally said Cladence. It won't leave my mind now.. thanks for that, Kam. Jess & TJ have chosen names for the boys that also start with 'C'...so I always practice saying all four names in a row. It feels like a tongue twister.
And the twins' names are..........drum roll please....... CASON & CALEN. Cason, like Mason with a C. ..and Calen. Little Case & Cal. Cadence, Clara, Case, Cal. Oh boy. TJ already has their names up on the nursery wall, so it is official.
