28 WEEKS!!!!!!!!!28 WEEKS!!!!!!!!!28 WEEKS!!!!!!!!!28 WEEKS!!!!!!!!!28 WEEKS!!!!!!!!!28 WEEKS!!!!!!!!!28 WEEKS!!!!!!!!!28 WEEKS!!!!!!!!!28 WEEKS!!!!!!!!!28 WEEKS!!!!!!!!!28 WEEKS!!!!!!!!!28 WEEKS!!!!!!!!!

Big sighs are being heard around our house. I awoke to Gabe wishing the boys a happy 28 weeks. Of course we don't want the boys to come now, but I am relieved to know they will be just down the street and will have an excellent chance at survival. We have been longing for this day and I am very thankful it is here.

News... Phoenix ripped apart the diaper cake that Ryan sent us. If anyone would like a dog or two please email me. They are driving me crazy, probably because this is a VERY stressful week. Trying to prepare for houseguests and get our house, the guest room (which is in the process of being turned into a playroom), and the boys room in some what of an order is not easy. All I can do is bark orders and I hate it. My poor Mom, not so much Gabe. He has been gone the last two nights, but tonight and tomorrow will be a biggie for him. Poor guy!

My laptop isn't working! So I have lost two of my very close friends... the internet and the Sims 3. I feel as if I am going through withdrawals. It won't charge. I ordered another charger hoping that is all it is, so we will cross our fingers. For now I am on the desktop, but that is VERY limited because I have to sit up on a chair to use it.

In baby boy news they are ACTIVE! Can't go long now without a kick. This weekend was incredible, the boys were playing a soccer game (although Gabe was hoping it was baseball) and everyone got a chance to feel. It was so fun to be able to share those normal pregnancy things with everyone. Aaden is kick kick kicking away as I type, I should video this, my stomach is going crazy those are some hard kicks.

By this week, your baby weighs two and a quarter pounds (like a Chinese cabbage) and measures 14.8 inches from the top of her head to her heels. She can blink her eyes, which now sport lashes. With her eyesight developing, she may be able to see the light that filters in through your womb. She's also developing billions of neurons in her brain and adding more body fat in preparation for life in the outside world.

*** come on seriously? What is up with my Mac? Are you seeing what I am seeing? It is splitting words on different lines. Oh my! Sorry!!! AND THIS FONT!!!! Come on! Happy 28 weeks.... it is going to be one of those days huh?
*** My Mom is letting me borrow her laptop, I think I got it fixed. Gessshh, what was up with that?

THANK GOD!!! I'm so happy to see your little boys made it this far. When I first started reading your blogs, they were so far from this milestone! Keep doing a great job mama and keep baking little ones! We all want to see you but keep cooking for a little while!


BB said...

G & H said...

I love you girl...thanks for all the advice! I love laughing cow cheese and it sounds yummy with basil, tomoato on an English muffin...mmm! G decided he wanted a steak today, 16oz ribeye and was sad to see that it took up 33 points! He decided this is going to be his last ribeye and he is going to start eating NY. He says he can't eat only 4oz of steak...lol! Since WW gives you 35 extra points a week, he can afford the occasional steak! :)

I once weighed in at 125 (on my wedding day) and since IF took over my life, I gained 160 pounds (sad to say I was 285)! I'm now at 260 and I'm going to lose until I get pregnant and then just maintain while pregnant because my dr doesn't want me to gain an ounce unless it is from the baby!

I think you are going to be my WW best friend! But I don't think you are going to mind seeing how excited you were on my post! :)

If you solely breastfeed, you get an additional 10 points. If you breastfeed and give the baby formula, you get an additional 5 points.

I get a whopping 36 points cause I'm currently a fatty, lol! I wasn't able to eat up all my points yesterday but it was the first day and I was being a good girl! :)

Congrats on 28 weeks!

In case the new charger doesn't work, don't forget to also try a new battery. Batteries can be pretty problem-prone... Hope that whatever it is, you get your own laptop back soon. :)

Your message was a mess. How funny. I hope your laptop gets fixed up.
Yay for 28 weeks! They are getting so much stronger and ready for the outside world, you've really been doing so well at keeping them in there and safe. Good job to you mom.
