BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!!! #Operationbabyhornettes

In case you hadn't heard Jim and my screams the moment we got the news, we're here to let the world know...we're EXPECTING!!!!  Two, that's right folks, TWO hornettes will be making their debut March 7, 2014 and we.cannot.WAIT!

What does that mean?  For one, the  blog will be the main source for all the updates regarding anything and everything #operationbabyhornettes.  That means weekly bump pictures, the nursery chronicles and any other projects we may have up our sleeves.  So let's get the party started! 

How far along:  13 weeks and 3 days
Size of twinkies: Conflicting.  One place says oranges the other says lemons
Total weigh gain: Not sure yet.  We don't own a scale, so I won't know until I go to my next OB appointment which is next Tuesday.  Can't wait!
Maternity clothes:  Oh heck yeah!  Although I can fit into non-maternity shirts and my workout stuff (for now at least!)
Sleep:  I fall asleep easily and LOVE my snoogle (in fact Sammy and Jim seem to have taken a liken to it as well) but I'll get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and can't back to sleep because my mind is racing with things that need to get done before the twinkies make their debut.
Gender:  One BOY!  And the other baby's gender is unknown until the 18 week ultrasound.  Should we start a pool to see who guesses the second baby's gender correctly?
Names:  Not sharing yet :)
Best moment this week:  Going crib shopping!  Still seems surreal we're actually getting to experience this at all, so getting to do all things baby and pregnancy related seems like such a blessing.  And come on, how cute is nursery shopping?!  Is there anything better??
Miss anything:  Nothing!  So content.
Movement:  None yet and can't wait for the day I get to feel the babies move.
Food cravings:  Oh gosh!  Anything salty basically...goldfish, cheese, macaroni and cheese, pizza, egg and cheese breakfast sandwich...basically nothing that is good for me ha!.  Although Jim does get up earlier in the mornings now to make me an egg and cheese sandwich.  Can we get a collective Awww!!!?
Anything making you sick or queasy:  umm that's a big YUCK on anything pork related!!!
Mood:  Soooo happy!  Although I do cry at the drop of a hat (I even cried during the latest Real Housewives of New Jersey episode.  I can't help it!)
Looking forward to:  This pregnancy and meeting the twinkies!
