I am still obsessed with pregnancy, so I don’t have much to talk about.

I went to my first Mothers of Twins Club meeting last night. It seems like there are some really nice ladies there. I hope to get to know them better, and after the babies are born and get a little bigger, I hope to get active with this group.

We lost a great lady last Saturday, my Ma, Olive Taylor, at age 92, went to be with Jesus and my Pa, who preceded her in death by about 11 months. You can read her obituary here .

I will never forget Ma’s cookies and muffins. She showed me one way to love people is by providing food for their bodies.

Ma and Pa

Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her.
May she and all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

I was super bummed because I couldn’t go to Ma’s funeral. I went to Pa’s funeral last fall, but because of distance, money, and pregnancy, I couldn’t go spend this time with family in Maine. My mom, dad, sister and nephew drove up and they’ll be home on Saturday.

I have been doing quite poorly on my gluten-free diet. My diet these days is more like a see-food diet (when I see food, I eat it). I am sure this is because of the babies, but I am a little nervous about how it will be to lose the weight after they are born (as of last week, I had already gained 40 pounds!). I know what I have to do, though: eat mostly gluten-free, eat only when I’m hungry, and stop eating when I’m full. That’s how I lost about 20 pounds at the beginning of 2013.

A co-worker came to my desk this week and asked if I would be offended if they start an office pool on the birth date, genders, and weights of my babies. I laughed, of course I wouldn’t be offended. I’m glad I can provide entertainment.

Have a great weekend. God bless you.

  1. Sorry for your loss, but good to hear that the babies are still growing away! I approve of the See Food diet. Considering you’re eating for three, I think you’re entitled to a little extra. 🙂
