Melinda is 33 weeks and three days today! Since I last posted about her she's had two surprise work baby showers! She was very surprised at both, where she received lots of precious baby gifts and goodies from her sweet co-workers! The twins will be born in about three or so weeks! We are very excited. Melinda is doing well and she's by far the best pregnant lady I know. She hasn't dare complained once, even while still working 5 12's! She's such a trooper and we are so looking forward to the births of our newest family members: Nataleigh Ann and Nicholas Reid Page!

31 weeks 2 days!

32 weeks!

33 Weeks!

The first week that school was out, we had a water/dinner playdate at The Callahans!
Morgan Kate, Nolan, and Caroline had a great time playing! The mommies loved being together and catching up was a lot of fun! I can't wait for another and neither can Miss Caroline!

Three friends together!

Nolan is an absolute cute pie!

These two always make me smile!
Those of you that know me, know exactly what this is. Three utility bags worth. Throwing it all away, even two years later, was painful!

There are many things that I enjoy most about summer! Playing with friends and storytime are two of my most favorite!

Ready, set, go!

Here's more pictures from Courtney's graduation and graduation party! These events that we celebrated for her academic achievements were really fun! I loved the graduation exercise as well as her party that she shared with her two BFF's, Calley and Victoria!

The Dukes!

The sisters, my precious nieces!

Cute pics!

Sam's Aunt Paulette and Uncle Danny came to

The two C's taking it easy in the pool! C wasn't
a big fan of the pool but loved sitting by it.

Just having fun with my little girl!

The sisters playing chicken!

K and C!

Momentous for this mommy! Courtney
gave C the book, "Oh, the Places You'll Go", by Dr. Seuss, 
as a gift to her upon her graduating from high school.
The letter on the inside was heartmelting. The book, the letter,
and the idea will be treasured!
Life doesn't get any better than this!
On Saturday, May 28th, we helped celebrate my BFF's little boy's first birthday! This was the 2nd highlight of our weekend that I was telling you about. It was such a fun day! Nolan was the star of course and he loved playing, eating his cake, and taking a dip in his swimming pool! Caroline had a lot of fun too! We love birthdays! They are pretty special!

Nolan and his daddy share the same birthday! How
precious! Note the "1" and "33"!

The girls!

Cute favors!

The Birthday Boys!

Nolan is so adorable!

Rita painted this very cute ladybug on Miss C! It
matched perfectly with the ladybugs on her outfit!
All day she would ask, "See my ladybug"!

Even C's daddy wore a golf visor! Too much fun was had!
In May, my family hosted a twin baby shower for my twin sister, Melinda! We had a great time visiting with her, laughing with her, seeing her great gifts, and eating some really delicious foods! I know she enjoyed her very special day just like her guests!
Right now, Melinda is 30 weeks and is doing very well. Her belly has grown 4 inches since her last dr.'s appointment which was two weeks ago! One baby currently weighs 3 lbs and some change while the other weighs 2 lbs and some change. Melinda's BP is great and at 30 weeks her weight gain is +6! Our family is super excited about seeing these precious babies and it won't be long. I can't wait to hold them, love them, and read to them! The other day when I was talking to Caroline about the babies she said, "Mommy go get them". HA! I had to explain to her that they are still in Aunt Melinda's tummy and we will see them in about two more months! There names aren't yet decided and we can't wait to hear that news too!
Here's the shower pics!

28 weeks 5 days!
