Thinking about......

 TWINS!!!! We're having twins!!!! Holy Cow.....We're having TWINS!!!!!!!!!

Due May 26th!
We are ALMOST 4 months pregnant!

After we found out!!! :) I'm surprised Trent could hold the camera still to take the pic! 
Well, that's where I've been! These new precious  babies have been consuming my every thought, prayer, and action. We are SO excited, but yet so nervous at the same time!! :)

We found out on October 18th, two days after my 30th birthday....and I just knew my 30th year couldn't get any better! 

I'd give anything to have had a video camera in the ultrasound room when we were told there were two beautiful heartbeats. I started happily crying (very loudly I may add) many emotions, and Trent had silent tears. I grabbed his hand harder than I ever have, asked him if he was ok, and we spent the next 10 minutes in total bliss staring at the two blessings on the ultrasound screen. Wow!

It's been fun for people to ask us how we reacted and the more and more I tell the story, the more I think back to the day we found out I was pregnant with Collins. The joy was just as intense. After 10 months or so of trying for the little guy, we were drained, exhausted, at eachother's throats at times....we just wanted a baby so bad. Ten months may not seem long in the grand scheme of things, but for us it seemed like eternity. So, when little Collins was spotted on the ultrasound screen we cried happy tears, held hands, and stared at that screen just thanking God for this little blessing.

So, wow! Two more little Waltz babies to love on and I cannot wait to have my own little school at my kitchen table. :) No, I'm not homeschooling .....ha!

Please pray for the little ones to grow at the same rate. Three weeks ago they both measured at 2 1/2 inches and everything checked out fine. Their heartbeats were steady and my little Baby A was a wild one. Baby B was woken up by the technician and he/she just rolled over gently...somehow not startled by the kicking and punching of Baby A. :)

Baby B....this one has Collins' belly!

Baby, look at the length of those legs....

Both babies! One's head is by one's foot and vice versa. :) 

We find out next week if they are BOYS, GIRLS, or both! :) I cannot wait. I think this is attributing to the little sleep I'm getting! 

My sweet family below! Priceless reactions....shock, tears, screaming, disbelief, excitement, and so much more!

We called Trent's family ASAP and they were so sweet. Trent's mom called back about 5 minutes later to hear the story again. :) When we saw Kennedi last week she made my heart so happy. She said, "I'll take care of Collins." As a mommy who adores their first child SO much, that's your biggest prayer for them....that they still get attention and lots of love!!

Mom had to run to the door for better light! She could not believe it! Her mouth was open for quite some time! :)

Aunt Sissy screamed and screamed. She says she willed it on me, because she wants twins too! :)

Dad cried happy tears and could not believe it! :)

Big brother kissing his little sisters/brothers!
Follow us on our new journey!

I like his better than mine!!

He will always be the center of attention :)

So, last night I truly thought Trent and I were headed to date night. Trent said he wanted a good steak and I wanted to see a movie. :) Turns out my family's plans were WAY better than that :). 
Headed to date night! When we get to the restaurant one my best friends from college was sitting at the table with her husband! They drove in from STL. I screamed and couldn't stop hugging her!!! :) 
This is her!! Gina! :)

**Before party pics**
Then, we come home and there's a party!!!!!!!!
Sissy and my mom truly outdid themselves. Everything was just SO cute! 

The caramel apple bar....yummy!!!!

Hot apple cider and pom-poms everywhere!

So sweet to hear about 25 dear friends and family singing Happy Birthday. God has blessed me with the most incredible friends and family! And, I so appreciated the sweet phone calls and kind gifts on my birthday from sweet friends and family far away! Wish you lived in Lexington!!

The Birthday Project

Pinned Image

My 30th was truly special and exactly the 'calm' that I wanted. :) To be around my family for a beautiful day and dinner was 'so me'. That's what I do! Just love my family and love being together.

One of my sister's sweet gifts to me was this "Birthday Project" you'll see below. She thought for my 30th, we could celebrate with helping others in 30 different ways. I was just blown away by how sweet this was. Plus I'll get a whole day with my sister to do 30 random acts of kindess. I can't wait! We are going to make our own list, but there are ideas listed on the website below of different charities, etc.

Thanks sister for wanting to make the world and us better! :)

PS: My blog will let me add pictures, but they are all different colors. Can anyone help?? :)

Thursday, October 11, 2012 favorite!

Yep, we're busy as we can be and I'm sorry to be SO far behind on the posts!! :)

Few updates on the Waltz Family:

  • Collins turned 20 months! He's starting to really use his words and I'm so proud of him!
  • If we go a week without a bruise I'm a happy mommy :) 
  • Collins is still in his crib and will be until he climbs out!
  • He still eats about everything but veggies...still wants them in baby food form?!
  • I turn 30 in less than a week! Whoa baby. So thankful for so much!
  • Trent is just the best and is staying busing with conference call after conference call xo (Thank you for all you do for our family!) He can be found in the basement playing pop-a-shot, tickling Collins, trying to get the pool closed for the winter, or with me! 
  • I've been busy with teaching Sunday school to 9 year olds, teaching 2 year olds about Jesus, going to a grown up bible study and mom group :), escorting children/adult authors around town to their events, helping my church out with singing and their website, and the best? Being a mommy :).
