The "original" identical twins

These two identical ladies (my aunt Judy on the left, and my mom Jany on the right) are INCREDIBLE! They are the youngest of 9! They both taught/teach 3rd grade for years. Let me just tell you...they drove in to be with me and Joe this past Sunday during their Spring Break and stayed for my doctors appointment on Monday. While they were here, they wouldn't let me do a thing but sit on the couch! They went grocery shopping and prepared one of my favorite meals from my childhood: homemade steak fingers with mashed potatoes and cream gravy! OH MY GOSH, was it good! They also made taco meat (our family recipe) so that Joe and I could enjoy tacos this week, long after they left...(they also left me a little somethin' to go buy me some cute maternity clothes...)
...i tell you what...

Such incredible women! I call them, my two moms! (with sweet little Shiloh)

This is me, this past weekend...yup, already wearing maternity clothes in month 3. Gotta LOVE that elastic! ;), this little girl in the green shirt...having quads....unBELIEVEABLE.

My 10 week pic. (in my 11th week of pregnancy) mom couldn't BELIEVE how much I have grown in just a week's time! Every single week, I seem to double my size! Its just so crazy to watch! Hope you don't get sick of the "belly shots"...eventually, when all the beautiful purple-silvery stretch marks come, I'll cover up a tad! ;) Won't it be glorious?!

I'll never get sick of pregnant belly shots! Even with stretch marks-it will be beautiful!
Your "2 moms" look like so much fun! They should make a tv show of them!

You look just precious! Be proud of that little belly! It takes most women a few months to finally "look" pregnant and not just fat. With you, you look pregnant and so cute! Be glad for that! I'm glad your mom and aunt helped you buy some maternity clothes. Aren't moms wonderful! Take care of yourself and try to relax as much as possible! Shauri (Taskey) Phillips :)
-By the way, were we in Ju Go Ju together? I think I'm a couple of years older than you. I know we went to Harding together, but the more I think of it the more I think we were in Ju Go Ju together. Who knows??? :)

I don't think you look pregnant:) You still look skinny minny to me!!! I love the belly shots and can't wait to see you grow and grow! I love the pictures of your mom and Aunt Judy! It sounds like they really took care of you while they were visiting. Who will come take care of you when you go on bed rest???

Nicki W. said...

you look so great! 3 months is a great time for maternity clothes! take advantage of all the summer stuff b/c you can get away with wearing bigger regular size clothes since long shirts and empire waists are in!

Regina said...

You are just too cute! So glad your mom(s) :) came to visit and spoil you rotten! I love the outfit, you look very cute and comfy! Thanks for sharing this exciting time with all of us!
