Week 29

Well, Week 29 (And 28, and 27, and 26) has been pretty eventful. Brendon went to prom, Meagan broke the SHS high jump record (She cleared 5'5) and Reggie "crossover"-ed in Girl Scouts, and the parents went to Cancun! I've been working and running (not actually running, hah) between Highland and Sabetha a lot. I'm making sure to get lots of girl time with Hannah and "not parents yet" time with Jacob in before the kidlets make their appearance. 
I read a few weeks ago that if someone puts their ear up to your belly and listens real close they MIGHT MAYBE be able to hear a little heartbeat.. So, Jacob tried it. And got punched/kicked in the ear. Then he tried again a few weeks later and actually got to hear baby boy's heart beat! YAY! 
Also, the names are pretty much picked out and decided on.. not set in stone because we all know how indecisive I am, but we're like 99.97% sure what the names will be. And I'm excited! And if you ask, I won't tell you. Because its a secret. AND I could  still change my mind. AND I really don't want to hear someone say "Thats weird/boring/odd/different/unique/ugly/anythingbutthebestnameever." So there's that. Here are a few pictures from the last week! :)

I bought a new camera and this was the first picture we took with it..
I thought it was blog-worthy :)

Jacob put a bowling ball in his shirt..? I look like a fool in this picture but I think it accurately describes our relationship- lots of laughing. :)

My beautiful friend, Hannah.

If you want to look 15-20 lbs lighter, take a picture with a pregnant girl. Works every time. ;)

Its been a great week spent with great people that I love. :) :)

BUT. Thats not to say that I haven't been extra moody. YOU try carrying around a 679 pound belly and see how chipper you are!!

Here's a short list of things that irritate the scary pregnant girl this week:

1. People who look at my belly before making eye contact. RUDE.
2. Hearing that one of my favorite teachers at SHS is saying not so nice
things about my "situation". I realize that being unwed and pregnant isn't
exactly ideal, and that the timing is bad, and blah blah blah. But I don't
think SASS MOUTHIN about me to a bunch of high schoolers is really
going to change anything. Thanks for the kind thoughts though. <- sarcasm.
3. Putting shoes on. Not happening.
4. Painting my toe nails. Again, not happening. (Volunteers?)
5. Picking up things when I drop them.
6. Ankles that look more like tree trunks than dainty girly ankles. 
7.Heartburn. Holymolysweetchocolatestarfish heartburn. If the pregnancy 
wives' tale is true that heartburn makes babies have hair... my 
babies are gonna look like monkies.

Here's to another fun, sassy week!

Olivia, Baby Boy, and Baby Girl 


  1. Olivia, you are a beautiful, kind, fun, loving, creative person and the twins are going to be so lucky to have you as a mom. :)

    You just let me deal with whoever was sass mouthin you...I'll bring 'Sav' out (she's my alter ego who likes to tell people how it is).

  2. I second every single thing Savannah said, Olivia. You are going to be great. There are lots of people who are worse off than you who have babies every single day.. you are an amazing girl, you have a loving family, and you'll be a terrific mom. Don't let jerks bring you down, ok? Love these updates btw.. it'll be so fun to look back on them once the tater tots are here :)

  3. Since we're friends and I love you, I GUESS I'll paint your toe nails for you. YEAH, that's some true love right there. Also, BABIES!
