1st Day of School

Chase had his first day of preschool last week! He is going 2 days a week for 2 1/2 hours each day to a preschool that a woman does out of her home. It is a 3 year old class . . . earlier than I thought I would send my kids to preschool but I think it will be good for all of us. Chase has been asking to go to school since the beginning of the year so he was very excited.

Evie was pretty upset when Chase left & she had to stay home, but she got over it quickly & now has fun standing & waving & yelling goodbye as Chase leaves with his carpool in the morning.

That first day was very strange. We sent Chase off then went to do some errands I had planned. The errands were done in no time at all & then Evie & I stopped for doughnuts and came home. We still had about an hour and a half left until we had to get him, the house was quiet & I had nothing more planned to do. It was kind of an eerie feeling. But we got over that quickly and I have found that shopping with just one kid is so easy. I will definitely enjoy the quiet & my alone time with Evie for the next few months until the twins arrive!

The Twin Diet

Today's Lunch Menu: Cheetos & ice cream

Yes, I'm not doing too well at the healthy eating to keep down my chances of gestational diabetes. But sometimes you just have to eat whatever makes you not feel nauseous.

The good news? No weight gain in my first 12 weeks of pregnancy. That's never happened to me before and I think I can attribute it to two things. One: I've been too nauseous to eat consistent or large meals. Two: there are 2 babies sucking calories out of my body -- yippee!!! I definitely LOOK larger - no question about that, but I've started noticing my face getting thinner. In the past, I've always gained about 5 to 7 pounds during that first trimester, so this is a great start!

Poor Jeff is feeling bad that I can eat junk and not gain any weight, while he has to watch what he's eating. Poor guy :( However, I'm the one that's needing larger & larger clothes, so he shouldn't feel too bad!
