Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Links and Items I Have Found for the Twins

1. Fly Lady - great site to help make cleaning and cluttering easier
2. Zwaggle - like free ebay this site lets you sell you stuff for points and then buy other stuff with those points
3. Babies at Sutter Health- site fo the hospital the twins will be born at
4. Talk About Twins - online magazine about twins
5. CCPOM - local twin group
6. Baby Zone's twin section - info on fetal development and growth of twins
7. Car seat measurements - this site have the measuements for most car seats and a good forum with help on which cars will fit 3 car seats
8. - so I use this all the time already but I'm finding a ton of baby stuff listed
9. Target baby registry - started my registry so I can remember what I am looking for second hand and so Mom can help look too :)
10. Babies R Us registry- started this one so I know when the baby fairs are. Got a ton of goodies at the one last weekend :)
11. Baby Trend Snap N Go double stroller - even though this one only fits the babies until they are 20 pounds it means I don't have to take them out of their infant seats and I only have a light frame to fold and fit into the trunk.

12. Baby Trend infant seats - they fit the best into the Snap N Go and are an inch thinner at the base so they will fit better into our car.

13. Graco Turbo booster - the best ranked booster seat that also is thin enough to fit in the middle seat between the twins. Elisa likes this one:

Wordless Wednesday

So not totally wordless today :) Thanks for all the comments and emails for last week's WW post. I am 14 weeks along and due July 18th. Just went to the dr and heard the heart beats today, so cool. Don't know if they are identical or fraternal or if they are boys or girls. We didn't get an ultrasound but here is a pic to give an idea of how big the babies are already, about the size of a fist.

Tackle It Tuesday

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

So this weeks tackle was to finish cleaning the kitchen and try to be a good Fly Baby and keep my sink empty.
I ended up switching to finding a new place to live. I was thinking I could put this off but the more I tried to clean up our 1 bedroom place the more I realized most things just have never found a home in this place so they end up in piles.

I think I have found a good place that we can afford and stay put for a while. We even have an option to do a lease to own. It is a 3 bedroom/1 bath that the owner is doing a lot of wok to. Brand new Energy Star windows, new tile floors throughout the house, freshly painted cabinets with new hardware and new appliances in the kitchen, large front and back yards that will be easy to set up play areas for the kids and the house is in the boundaries for the schools we want. Efrain and I are meeting with the owner on Saturday and hopefully my tackle for next week will be getting ready to move :)

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

I finally got some cleaning done this week, a lot on Tuesday. My goal for the week was to get the kitchen sink cleaned out. I was able to do all the dishes that were in the sink and give the sink a good scrub. I then had a full sink again once I had all the pots and pans soaking :(
So this weeks tackle is to finish cleaning the kitchen and try to be a good Fly Baby and keep my sink empty.
I would share pictures of my mess but they are too embarrassed. Think the messiest house from Clean Sweep and you have a good idea of what my place has been looking like :(
