36 Weeks!


We are at 36 weeks this weekend, praise God!  We are so thankful these babies have stayed put for this long.  My next appointment is Monday morning.  The Dr. will scan them, and if their lungs look mature, he will schedule my c-section possibly as early as Tuesday!  We are beyond excited.  The last ultrasound we had was two weeks ago; at that point baby boy was 4 pounds 12 ounces and baby girl was 5 pounds 1 ounce.  I am so thankful for those weights, but I increased my fat intake the last couple of weeks to try to give them more to grow from!  It is hard to eat at this point (the Dr. says my stomach is the size of a grape) so I figure I might as well pack those calories in with each bite.  Sleeping is almost impossible--partly because of my excitement and partly because of discomfort--but I love it.  I just lay awake thinking about holding them, feeding them, singing to them...my guess is I am just getting a glimpse of our new way of life!  Bring on the sleepless nights!

Please continue to pray for the babies' maturity and growth.  How we treasure your prayers!!!!

Last night we set up our camera and took some pics for fun...

 I seriously love this man!

 Adam thinks it is hilarious that he has to lean over to kiss me...
