Team Babies - 22 Weeks 4 Days

Baby appointments totally make my day.  I love seeing the amazing trio and knowing that everything is still going well.  No twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome.  Bladders look good.  Heartbeats strong.  Cervix long.  All the babies are growing and looking great!  Jamie was laying on her back during the ultrasound and you could see the babies kicking out her tummy.  All these little flutters popping out.  :)  They were so active!  It was seriously the cutest thing I have ever seen.  
Jamie is getting bigger and more uncomfortable.  I wish I could take that away.  My mom is coming out to Utah this weekend to help her out and let her rest a little more during the day.  Hopefully she can put her feet up and keep these babies in as long as her body will tolerate it  :)  I have the most amazing family.

Team Babies - 20 Weeks 6 Days

We had our 21 week ultrasound today.  They are still closely monitoring the identical boys for twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) - which they don't show any signs of at this point - so that's great!  "Baby A" is supposed to be the baby closest to the cervix since that will be the first baby delivered...but now Baby B is closest to the cervix.  So as of right now Baby B will be delivered first.  The ultrasound tech said it will most likely stay that way until delivery.  We'll see :)  I always wanted the first born to have Curtis' middle name - so this whole time I have been thinking that was going to be Baby A.  Do I switch it to Baby B now?  Not a big deal, but just something on my mind haha...

Baby B
Baby C - look at that cute little profile

We had our 20 week appointment last week and everything looked great!  There was no sign of twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) between the identical boys - which is awesome!
Wikipedia's definition of TTTS (in case you were wondering) is here.
Here's a little progression of pics:
14 weeks
17 weeks
19 weeks
20 weeks
I LOVE this belly!!  :)

California Baby Shower - Gender Reveal

I can't believe that I had a baby shower.  Me.  I did.  So weird.  I have always dreamed of having a baby shower, but never thought it would actually happen.  My best friend Jen, her mom Patty, and my mom threw me the BEST baby shower EVER!  Everything I have ever dreamed of.  No one (besides my immediate family) knew what the genders were.  We decided to copy Giuliana and Bill and reveal the genders at the baby shower!  :) 


Everyone that came in had to guess what they thought the babies were. 3 pink necklaces? 3 blue necklaces? Or a mix? 

The BEAUTIFUL cake my sister made the night before.

My brother Mitch spent hours printing out "It's Triplets" on paper and wrapping all the chocolates :)

Onesies from Jamie!  Super cute idea! 

Baba picked 2 blue necklaces and 1 pink!
Jamie & Olivia
Some of my best friends! 
Jen, Kayla, Kelsie & Colt, Kim, and Amber




Look at my face hahaha!  Just a little excited! 
Everyone was cheering afterwards!

Special surprise inside the cake :)

 Grandma and Grandpa Brown made the drive up to Hollister for the shower.
They spoiled the babies with tons of gifts! :)
My mom cleaning up already haha  :) She did an amazing job putting this all together! 
 Super cute bag filled with goodies! Lizette made it two hours before the shower! 
Another gift from my best friend Trisha! I'm definitely taking their 3 month pictures in these outfits! 
 My Aunt Judy and cousins wanted to buy outfits for the babies, but didn't know the genders prior, so she bought 3 girl gifts and 3 boy gifts - then took back the rest.  Haha...
My photographers. Stephanie...
 ...and Jill  :)

 Laker onesies from Mitch & Jill  :) 
 Little something special for Jamie from Cheryl.  :)  So sweet!!

 Kim & Amber - we have been friends since preschool! 
Preschool, middle school, graduation... Love this girl!
 Kim & Trisha! 
Other gift from Trisha! Love it!!
 My niece Olivia.  She is SO excited to have 3 more cousins.  She said she was hoping for 2 girls and a boy but will settle for 1 girl.  :)  So cute! 
 Thank you Jen for the best shower!!  :)
 I will never be able to thank her enough.  She seriously is making all our dreams come true! LOVE HER! 
 Curtis came towards the end.  :)
The whole day felt so surreal.  I still can't believe this is really happening.
The day couldn't have been any better!!
