Today I went for my first prenatal visit. Everything was going pretty normal, exciting but normal. Pap, exam, talk about when the baby will be dueâ€¦then the best part â€“ultra sound. Watching the monitor I notice two black spots. As â€œhmmp whatâ€™s thatâ€ was going through my head my Doctor said â€œOh Twoâ€. â€œUmm two what?â€ He said well I usually like to ease into this but YOU ARE HAVING TWINS.
So this weekend was mucho fun!!! Our friends from Portland came down and we showed them all over San Fran. They are so much fun and so easy to be with… Everytime we get together with them it is always easy and never stressful. I think it’s a combo of our shared interests and the fact that they are so chill. Everything just goes smoothly. Bub loves them to death too… can’t get enough and I’m sure when they leave he will be heart broken. He’s become very fond of their dog Porkchop. We ended our fabulous weekend with a BBQ in honor of my, Amanda, Mel, and Joe’s birthdays, Izzy & Amanda’s 1st anniversary, and our friend Darren’s new job 🙂 Lots to celebrate!!! We got a cake and didn’t want to leave anyone out…
The guy in the bakery at Safeway was really nice and did a great job!
All in all a great day and I’m completely worn out

My first entry of what I hope to be many rants and raves about life. So I’m sitting here thinking of what to write. Typing-backspacing-retyping and all I can think about is the bag of soft baked Pepperidge Farm cookies I bought for Evan and said I wasn’t going to eat. I can think of nothing else… not what happened today or yesterday or even 5 minutes ago… just COOKIES! I give in…walking back from the kitchen-annoyed- I tell Evan I’m opening your cookies. Cookies are the devil! Like most women I would usually sit and think about the cookies/ice cream/chips ect until I gave in – ate them then felt guilty afterward and worried about how fat I was going to get. Well haha I’m already fat being 6 months pregnant and after going to the doctor today and finding out I’ve only gained 11 lbs so far I don’t feel a bit guilty! Oh no wait there it is… GUILT now I must walk an extra half hour tomorrow to make up for the 3 cookies I just ate… errr why do we torture ourselves? Really why?
I just saw the person who inspired this site on ABC World News tonight. Heather Armstrong and her adorable daughter Leta. She is the mastermind behind www.dooce.com. A friggin hilarious webblog about her life! If by some weird chance you have come upon this site before finding hers… definitely check it out. Anyhow the story was about people losing their jobs because of what they write on the internet. We tuned in and were disappointed at how short it was. (and having to sit through all the other news crap) There sure is a lot going around these days about webblogs… this all new to me and i’ve actually only read 2 www.dooce.com and then www.waiterrant.blogspot.com Both are written well and very funny! I’ve read there are 8,500 people writing webblogs about their children (NY Times) Gesh, so do I still want to do this – be 8,501? Of course I do… because like other sites I’ve been to I won’t only be writing about my children. I will be writing about life from the point of view of a stay at home mom… sure there will be lots of stories about my child soon to be children… but there is also lots of humor in my daily life – enough to share. Maybe someone will relate to my stories like I have related to others… maybe make someone laugh or just smile.
All for now
Ps… I’m also lucky enough to have an extremely talented husband to build and design this site for me!
