11 weeks

We had another appointment with our OB today. During the ultrasound the babies were moving around SO much, waving their hands and wiggling their legs. Its amazing that even when they are so little they are already moving around in there! The babies were actually measuring at 11 weeks even though we thought they were 10. So, the due date moved up to Sept 15! One week farther along already :) The babies were right next to each other, sort of on top of each other so we couldn't get one of both baby profiles together, but here is a few we did get.

Baby legs and feet!

Baby heads :) Best friends!

The Secret is Out!

We went down to Seattle yesterday for Danny and our friend Steven's birthday party. Danny wanted this to be the night that we told some of our friends about the babies. After everyone had been there for a little while, we lit the candles on the cake and sang to the boys.

Then we told our friends to go sit on the couch by Danny and Steven so we could get a group picture. Once everybody was situated I held up the camera and said, "OK, everybody say 'Danny's going to be a daddy!'" and then took the picture. At first they were very confused and thought we were joking. Then I told them I was going to take one more and said "And its twins!" And then everybody really just thought we were joking. Once they realized we were serious they were all pretty excited about it. 
Danny's going to be a daddy!
Wait, what?
Are they serious!?
It was pretty funny and we had a good time telling our friends. And now, the secret is out! Its a relief because I find myself almost making a lot of comments about the babies, or their room, or something baby related so now I can and not have to worry!! It has been really fun to share it with our friends and family and everyone has been very excited!

The Big News

Hi! We thought this would a fun and easy way to keep everyone updated on the changes happening in the Kimmel household. We found out we were pregnant in January. We had our first OB appointment last week...
Meet Baby A

And Baby B!
 TWINS! What a surprise! We definitely did not see that one coming AT ALL! After scraping Danny off the floor, and reviving me with the smelling salts, we got to see both babies moving around and see their hearts beating.
Both Babies together :)

We are only 9 weeks along and were originally planning on waiting longer to tell everyone, can you keep twins a secret!? We are officially due Sept 22, but twins are on average about 3 weeks early.  Our OB is 90% sure that they are identical based on what she saw in the first ultrasound. This week, they are the size of raspberries. I go back next week  for another ultrasound. I kept telling Danny my stomach was getting bigger already and he never believed me. But twins never even crossed our minds! 

We left the doctor's office and immediately went and told our family who were very excited for the first set of twins on either side. **We will be telling our friends this weekend, so please no facebook announcements/comments yet :)** I will try and keep this updated so that I can try and remember everything going on! We are off to get our first baby name book so we can start thinking since we have to come up with two names now! I am also excited that now I can use the excuse for eating the whole carton of ice cream that I am eating for 3! :)
