Week 21 Pictures and Ramblings

Well, today we went for our 21 week ultrasound.

Short story long... everything is perfectly fine. Carter and Cooper are developing on schedule. They are both one pound. We saw 4 kidneys, 2 hearts (beating at 153 and 151 bpm), 2 brains, 4 arms, 4 legs, 2 stomachs, 2 bladders, and yep... speaking in baseball terms, 4 balls and two bats. :)

What? So I'm a little proud... give me that.

We got some great pictures as well. Carter was a little shy when it came to a good profile picture. Although he did give us one, it is upside-down. I guess when you're that age your mind doesn't work quite right. Maybe he thought if he turned upside-down we couldn't see him. That's just not the case, little buddy. That's ok. Neonate logic is just as cute as two-year-old logic. Gotta love it!

Here's some pics for you all. We know you are dying to see them so I'll quit boring you with my incoherent ramblings and show you the most precious pictures a proud papa could ev........... ok, ok...geeez! Here they are:

Cooper giving mommy and daddy what they want... a good profile.
We got a better profile last time, but who's complaining? :)

Carter, like I said earlier, thought he could hide by flipping upside-down.
Love the logic, little man. But it didn't work. We see you...

Carter and Cooper together in one shot. Miranda said, "Aww, look. They love each other. They're trying to kiss." I was like, "Ummm, no. My boys don't kiss each other. They're head butting"

Cooper's boy parts. Hey, dad's are proud and wanna show this off.

Carter's boy parts. I'm so proud!

Oh, hush. I'm just tickled to death. Finally the hormone balance will be shifted from balanced
to 75/25 testosterone/estrogen. Daddy is happy. :)

And as promised, although majorly delayed, here are some belly pics taken of Miranda today - before we went to the doctor. She was pleased with these and said I could post them. 

Isn't that precious?
Already cradling her babies. She's going to be an amazing mommy.

Hope you all enjoyed this update. Stay tuned...
More to come at a later date.

Thanks you guys (Amanda). That was sweet. :)
We may wanna hold off on letting them meet Olivia though. The way she treats her sister - throwing stuff at her (ie. cell phones) lol
