The final countdown

Hi everyone! I'm back for what will probably be my final entry before the arrival of our trio. My feet are getting worse every day, which I didn't think was possible, so I'll have to make this a quick update.

First of all, it's great to be in the new house. Thank you to everyone who helped us move and all the peeps who continue to drop by to help almost daily. There is really nothing I can do around here to settle in. It's incredibly frustrating, but I know it's what is best for the babies.

The babies' room is probably the most close to finished room in the whole house. I'll ask Billy to take some pictures of it and post them here, along with a finally picture of my belly. I know everyone wants to see how huge I am at this point. It's pretty impressive and disgusting. I never thought I could possibly stretch as much as I have.

Winnie seems to be settling in well here. She has so much space in and outside. However, she is almost always at my side. I was just in the bathroom brushing my teeth, and she was waiting patiently outside the door. Then, I walked into the room we are going to use as an office, and she followed me in and is now asleep at my feet.

I'm only allowed up and down the stairs once a day. Therefore, I am going to descend in a few minutes, and I will not be back until tonight when Billy comes home to help push me up. Last night, I was out of breath for 5 minutes after climbing up the stairs.

Thank you to everyone for your continued support! We are so excited that the babies are coming soon. Although, I have to admit that I'm also a little scared. That's normal, though, right?

excitement and scared are two very normal feelings that become apart of everyday life with kids, but it's the best thing in the world! we are so happy for y'all. we're counting down and can't wait until friday :-)
