Avocados are like the perfect food. Am I right? Smoothies. Salads. Mac and cheese. Grilled cheese. Sushi. I can’t think of many things that aren’t better with avocado than they are without.
Mash some avocado on toast and you’ll wonder why you ever thought butter, cinnamon, and sugar was the best topping for toast. Sit down to a
meal snack of chips and guacamole and literally forget all of your cares. Or maybe that’s only when tequila is involved too? Regardless, I hope we can agree that avocados are a true gift from whatever heaven it is you believe in.
Today, however, I’m pretty excited about a couple of things that aren’t actually avocados but I’m told they’re about the size of avocados at this point so obviously I fell even deeper in love with them this week. It’s impossible for me not to love anything avocado related. It’s also impossible for me not to love anything baby related. And as it turns out, I’ve got some double love going on here because not only do I have one avocado-sized something to love, I’ve got TWO avocado-sized somethings to love. Of course I won’t actually be able to smother them with loving kisses until June or July but that doesn’t mean that my love for them doesn’t grow by the day, just as they grow and develop every day.
If you’re not picking up what I’m putting down here, the avocados I speak of are, in fact, TWINS. Of the baby variety. I’m rounding out week 16 of the absolute most surreal few months of my life and I can only imagine how surreal/exciting/amazing each month of my life shall be from this point on.
These pictures are from our nine week ultrasound so the babes are obviously much bigger and more baby like these days. Unfortunately the thirteen week didn’t provide any decent photos so I’ll have to wait until the end of the month for photos from our twenty week “photo shoot.”
As you might expect, I’ll be back to talk about this topic at more length. In fact, I think I may have just found the “blog voice” I seem to be always searching for.
