The babies are doing really well! Baby A (she's the girl) is on the bottom and she weighs 1 lb, 2 ounces! She's head down, which is good since she's been breech up until this ultrasound. She moves ALL the time. I can tell she's gonna be a feisty one!
Baby B (he's the boy) is on the top, laying sideways. He's very mellow...I can feel him move, but he doesn't move NEARLY as much as Baby A does. Hopefully I'll have at least one easy baby! He weighs 1 lb, 1 ounce, and the doctor is amazed at how close they are staying to each other (growth wise). Apparently fraternal twins can grow at different rates...it's kind of like having 2 pregnancies, except they are happening at the same time! So Dr. Kates is surprised that they continue to be so close together (last time they were only 6 grams apart!).
For more exciting news, we got a bunch of baby stuff! This weekend we went hog wild and bought 2 cribs, a changing table, a travel system (stroller/car seat combo) and a pack n play! I'll post pictures when I take some. All of the bedding has come now, and we're expecting a big box from Carter's to come today! I'm starting to get really excited...now if only our basement was done!

This sucker was HUGE!
Sarah and I getting ready to go. I think one of the guys must have said something funny!
I have another big ultrasound appointment tomorrow, so hopefully we'll get some good pictures and I'll be able to post them! We'll let you know how it goes!

We also went to the Pioneer museum in Tillamook. It was also really neat-there was a room full of weaponry, from Indian arrowheads and spears to Civil War rifles. There was also a re-created Pioneer house, a doll collection, a Victorian style room, and much more--including a LARGE taxidermy display! (My LEAST favorite, and probably Scott's most favorite :) )
Here I am outside the Pioneer Museum--not the best tummy shot, but you can kind of see it. I'm 17 weeks here.
We drove out to the point and saw the Cape Mears Lighthouse and the Octopus tree-- a HUGE Sitka Spruce that looks like an upside-down octopus, shaped by strong coastal winds. It was SO cold and SO windy.
After the beach, we stayed in Portland for 3 nights and saw some of our dear friends. Here are Adam and Scott with their beer samplers at Rock Bottom Brewery. We also had dinner with one of my best friends from college, Angela--she cooked us a DELICIOUS meal and her sister, Jen, and boyfriend (now fiance!) Ben were there. All in all, it was a great trip. Very relaxing and a much needed vacation! We are in Florida right now for a work conference for Scott, so I'll update about that soon--I promise!
