So I've been putting off this post for awhile, mostly because I have zero stitching to share right now and no pictures is boring. All those good intentions from January as well as any stitching mojo I had have gone straight out the window and into the snow. Yes, the snow is still here and I'm hoping maybe we'll be rid of it by the May camping trip we're planning. Not optimistic about that at the moment but we'll see. Thanks again to all the new followers who have joined recently. Sorry there's been so little to see but I do actually have a really good excuse this time and it's not just work:). We've always wanted Josh to be a big brother and have been trying to make that happen one way or another for quite awhile. I haven't mentioned the adoption application in several months because things have not gone so well in that area for us. We have, however, had some unexpected exciting news in another area...

I'm sure we'll come up with something a little more traditional eventually but for now we're calling them Thing 1 and Thing 2 (thank you Josh and Dr Seuss) and they will be making their grand entrance sometime in the general vicinity of this September/October (because I am told twins kind of come when they want, much like singleton births I guess but with more wiggle room because it's two). Everyone joked about twins when we found out I was expecting but the real surprise came at the ultrasound when we first realized they were right and then realized they're going to be identical. I'm still not sure that part has quite sunk in yet and we've known for about a week now. Josh swears they're boys. Erich thinks they're girls. One of them will be right. I don't really care what they are as long as they're healthy. I am just relieved to know that all the lovely symptoms I've had are probably a little more intense than normal because it's two. Seriously, I was starting to think I was a wimp but I think I've finally got most of it kind of down to a routine for the moment except for the stitching. I just don't have any ambition or energy left when I get home at night right now and I miss my stitching. Maybe a trip to the LNS will help. The dear and wonderful husband did say he wasn't going to deny anything to a lady pregnant with twins! He may regret that later.

Congratulations!
Have you mentioned your lack of energy to your doctor? You might need to take vitamins to balance out the draw on your resources.
