Belly pics and baby girl kicks

Things continue to go well with our babies. We are more than halfway to our due date. Our GS is growing and the babies are active and growing, too. Greg and I have started registering and are looking forward to several baby showers in May and June. Here are the recent belly pics.

Ever since our GS's daughter felt baby girl kicking, they have been trying to catch it on video. Her daughter came up with the idea to put a glass of water on the baby bump to help us see when it moves. Here is the first video of our baby girl kicking. 

More updates to come as doctor visits will become more frequent from this point on. Thanks to all of our family and friends for their continued love and support.

Dance Party

Since I am not carrying our twins, I don't have daily updates as to how I am feeling or what the babies are doing. However, our surrogate does an amazing job of keeping us updated on milestones she experiences along the way. We are just short of 20 weeks pregnant. Our GS has been feeling movement for awhile.  Tonight I got a text from her that the babies had been really active and that her daughter was the first person to feel movement from the outside. She felt baby girl and said that she must be having a dance party with her brother. :)

Texts like these warm my heart and remind me of how blessed and lucky Greg and I are to have found such a wonderful woman, with a caring and supportive family, to carry our babies. We can't wait to hold our son and daughter in our arms this summer.

The 19 week belly picture is posted below. These babies are growing strong. :)
