So here is how it all went down...I was an eye witness to the FIGHT!

We were trying to teach Brighton and Eliza to Dance...

Eliza didnt like the way Brighton was leading so she shoved her!

While Eliza was pulling B's hair, little B went in at the waist and body slammed E to the floor...

We had to rip B away from E cause she was about to scratch her in the eyes...

We made them kiss and make up, but they were still a little mad at each other.

Here they are pretending to be friends again..... You can see that B is trying to sneak in a secret pinch on the arm to E.

Girls will be Girls!

What do Chris and I do on a Friday Night?

Suck on Oxygen of course!

My dr. said it was fine. I actually felt nauseous all day and after I inhaled I felt great!

30 days to go!

I found this picture on Jonna's blog from April 2nd. I am holding Indie and that means I was holding 4 babies!

I am so lazy with pics but will try to take one soon. I take them on my phone and text them cause it's easier. But, Shira does not get picture text so this is for you Sweet Heart!!!!

On monday I was told by my Doc to lay as much as I can and no more activities because I was starting to dilate. We are trying to keep the babies in but since they are heavy they could make me dilate faster. My next ultrasound is on Monday and I should get a rough estimate of what they weigh. I'm thinking about 5 pounds each...which is nothin'...I've got that in my butt already!
