Disappearance Explained

Can you make out those two blurry images in the above photo? We are expecting twins to join our family sometime after Thanksgiving. I am only 12 weeks along but these have been very busy and happy weeks. It has been hard for me to blog because all that has been filling my brain has been thoughts of these two little ones. I have wanted to keep my feelings private until I felt more sure that they were here to stay.

Yesterday we had an ultrasound to check on the twins progress. I was anxious to discover if they were both still there, I'd read that one twin can disappear unexpectedly early on. Scary. My fears were laid to rest there on the exam table. We quickly saw both babies. Hugo called one his sister and the other his brother. By the end of the exam though, he thought there were squirrels in my belly! We have a big brother in training here at our house. We three couldn't be more pleased.
