And here's Mallory. Because of the angle the picture was taken from, she looks like she's exactly opposite from Jake (head on the left), but they were really laying almost side by side in the same direction during the sonogram.
They were both moving around like crazy during the appointment, which has pretty much become the norm lately. I'm loving every minute of it! Feeling them move is so awesome, & it's just great to have a reminder that they're in there & are doing well. I have an appointment with my regular OB on Wednesday, & we should get a date for the C-section. Anyone that knows me at all knows I love to plan, so this is very exciting to me. Before you all comment on how they could come before that date & throw a kink in my plan, let me assure you that I know that. It's just nice to have something to shoot for, & hopefully they'll stay in there until the doctor decides it's time for their arrival. One last pic on the baby topic - here's me at 24 weeks.
On to the demolition! As part of our big flooring project that we're tackling, J & his dad are going to replace the hardwood floors in our entry hall & dining room. These are the before pictures:
They don't look that bad in the pictures, but they have tons of sun damage, & there are lots of weak & brittle boards from some old termite damage. The new floors will be installed when J's parents come for my shower in a few weeks, but J decided to start on the prep work this weekend so that he can have it ready to just put the new stuff down when Gary gets here. Really, I think he just liked having a reason to tear something up!
