And we are having ...

Today we got to spend some time with our babies via ultrasound.

And for those who have been guessing ... we are having two more boys!

I can only imagine that things are going to get a little louder around here over the next few years. But what an adventure! (Now to pick out names ... I have an abundance of girl names I would love to use, but I find boys much harder!)

Hopefully this means I'll have some baby knitting for the next yarn along. I have a skein of Tosh in grey that I'd decided to use for a sweater if we had a boy, so I can cast on right away.

In the meantime, Keith and I have gotten back to house hunting. It's been on the back burner for a bit while he worked on finishing his thesis. We've looked at three houses recently, and have two more that we're going to schedule soon. None of them are "perfect," but I am hopeful that one of them will become home.

The one that's currently at the top of our list is in some serious need of redecoration. Some poor design choices you can attribute to an era: carpet from the seventies or whatever. But this house? I told Keith I really couldn't imagine when or where buying kitchen tile so hideously pink and yellow was an option! But we both feel drawn to the house itself, and aside from being ugly, the kitchen is actually kind of awesome. (Tons of counter space, cupboard space, and TWO ovens!) I don't think any house quite matches up to the one we first fell in love with, especially since that one had so much room for us to grow ... but I am still eager to find and fall in love with our new home.

  1. Congratulations!!!

    We had so many boy names ready to go and NO girl names, so having too girls made things really hard! Especially since with Catholic twins who are boys, Cosmas and Damian are such perfect names!

    1. There's also Cyril and Methodius! And if it had been boy/girl twins there was Benedict and Scholastica ... ;)

      I might be able to talk Keith into Damian, not sure if he will go for Cosmas, hehe!

  2. Congratulations! Oh man... Time to stock up on natural sources of energy, like kale and almonds. ;)

    Three boys. Despite the loudness, you can be sure that the boys will love you unconditionally well into their teens. Girls become independent a little earlier. Despite that, I look forward to the day you have a little girl. She'll be just like you and it'll be adorable. And oh... how her brothers will taunt her at first and then protect her later.

    1. Keith at one point said he was hoping for two girls ... I just kind of looked at him and was like, you've never lived with 12 year old girls, have you? lol.

    1. Thank you! I am feeling okay, although getting a bit uncomfortable some days. :) I am looking forward to finding out whether our boys are identical or fraternal--maybe it will be obvious once they come out. We'll see! :) God bless!
