Moving belly & Kaden

Here is a video of what my belly looks like 90% of the day. The babies are definitely filling up all the space and every movement is felt! Some movements, like in the beginning, are obviously much more noticeable than others. I guess that's what happens with 8 limbs and 40 digits crammed together!

Here are some pictures of Kaden this week. We spend most of our day downstairs. That way I can lay on the couch and still play with him. We have the TV, toys, and a bathroom right there, and I make sure to bring him a few drinks & snacks when we go down in the morning so I don't have to do the steps. I also keep a basket of craft stuff next to me so he'll sit next to me on the couch during craft time. I pulled the little colored balls out yesterday and they've entertained him so much in the past 2 days! I was happy to get 30 min. of entertainment... I never expected 2 days! We've sorted them, made mazes for them, paths for them, batted them, stacked them, put them into shapes, etc.....

Twins' Room

Last weekend we painted the babies' room. Bri & Amber took Kaden with them to a friend's son's 5th birthday party, so Matt & I were able to work without having a 2 year old as a distraction! The room is pretty complete (and very full) now.

Here are the before/during/after pictures

The red stripe after one coat - it ended up needing three. Matt did the borders and I painted in-between.

We also took out the brown baseboard and Matt put in the white stuff. We painted the closet doors, too.
