Counting down days, not weeks

It is so crazy that we only have 10 days until the twins arrive! I had stressful dreams last night that I'd had triplets instead of twins & just couldn't handle juggling that many babies. Needless to say, I woke up relieved when I remembered that we're just having two. If the Lord had decided to give us triplets, I'm sure He would have also given us the ability to take care of them, but I will admit that I'm happy to stick with my two.

We had a sonogram on Thursday, so I got to see my kids on my birthday! They didn't measure them at that appointment, & they didn't really cooperate for good pictures, but oh well. This is the only picture we got. It's their little heads huddled together as they conspire about how they'll give their parents a run for our money in a few days. We go back for another sonogram this Thursday, & this will be the final time they estimate their weights before they're born.Here's me at 35 weeks. Nothing has really changed with me. My body is starting to protest carrying around these babies for so long, but hopefully it will hold out for a few more days. We need those grandparents to be here for the twins' arrival!

You still look great. They will be here before you know it. We will be praying for a safe delivery.
