Ben’s preggo mag

Benjamin picked up a pregnancy magazine and was checking out all the babes (err, babies).


The Crayola Experience

We took Ben to the new Crayola Experience in Orlando on 8/22/15. It didn’t hold his attention as much as we’d hoped, but it was still pretty neat. He made a “Benjamin” crayon, played with clay (his favorite activity there), created a picture that was projected onto the wall.

Ben started pre-K, 8/24/15

On August 24, Benjamin officially started pre-k. He’d be going to “school,” i.e. daycare, for several months, but he was officially of age to start pre-k.

So far his teachers are saying he’s doing really well. If you can keep his attention and your patience, that’s probably true. 🙂

He traced his name:

Pregnant with twins!

2015-05-29 07.11.07

We found out on May 29, 2015 that I’m pregnant with baby #2 (and 3, as we recently discovered)!

I suspected twins because I was experiencing all the pregnancy symptoms really early and was sooooo tired. Plus, I have a family history of twins and I’m overweight and tall (which apparently plays a factor). After blood work came back to my primary care doctor showing my HCG pregnancy hormone levels were off the charts (like the max for that time in the pregnancy was only supposed to be like 65,000 and mine was 87,000), I was determined not to leave my first prenatal OBGYN visit on June 29 without an ultrasound or some other proof. The doc pulled out the very old ultrasound machine and, much to the doctor’s surprise, twins.

At the first real ultrasound on July 15, it was confirmed: two heartbeats, two fetuses. My due date is February 6 (adjusted this past week) but I’m saying January-ish because full term for twins is 37 weeks, not 40, and twins rarely even make it there.

Easy Bake Oven, take 2 or 3

Ben baked little pizzas in his Easy Bake Oven from Nana. They were disgusting! 6/13/15

Racquetball 5/30/15

I doubt Ben will become a professional athlete… at least not in racquetball! It was so funny to watch him though. He had a blast.

Picture day at “school”

May 2015

At Ben’s daycare, aka school since he’s not old enough yet for pre-k, they did school photos. He picked out his own clothes, so this:
