31 weeks!!!

Today we are officially 31 weeks! Only 7 more days to go! I remember, when I set the goal at 35 days, not being able to imagine getting into singlr digit days, and now we're down to 1 week!! I am home now. My mom flew out to help us out, and I am spending my days...in bed :) It's much nicer now that I am home!

The babies seem to be growing well. Our next ultrasound isn't for 1 1/2 weeks (after getting a couple a week in the hospital, I'm super spoiled, and it is really hard to wait that long!), but the babies seem to be growing well. T-shirts that fit a week ago are getting very snug this week! They are also moving a LOT! Baby boy spent all day yesterday wiggling himself into a new position (he likes to really explore his space & was in a different position for every ultrasound!). He would seem to settle into a spot, and then I could feel him wiggle like he wasn't quite comfortable, and then he would start inching around again (all this movement caused his sister to kick her complaints - she doesn't seem to like her space invaded). This kept going all day and evening, and I woke up this morning feeling like something was balled up right under my ribs. Sure enough, he carefully wedged himself as far as he could up under my ribs, and seems to have happily settled there! While, I'm happy he wants to be so close to my heart (literally), it's his most uncomfortable position choice yet...and I'm hoping this isn't the position he's in when he finally runs out of room and can't move!

My latest favorite is how the babies respond to Lucas. A few times at church, I noticed that when he spoke at the pulpit (preaching, announcements, anything) they would start moving around. I figured it was a coincidence. Then, in the hospital, I noticed that when he came to visit, he would walk in the room and start talking and they would start moving! It's not all the time...but if they haven't heard his voice for a while, and he starts talking, they go crazy! I think they know it is the voice of someone who will play with them.

Thanks for your continued prayers! We appreciate them so much.

Oh my goodness, Kim. I loved reading about your time with your little ones and how they're responding to their daddy. Thanks for sharing! ONE MORE WEEK!
