31 Weeks

Well, I am 31 weeks pregnant today. The babies are still in there and I am so glad about that! They kick and move like crazy and I absolutely love every second of it. You can see them move from the outside pretty easily now. It's so fun for me to watch and feel.

Everything is going pretty well as far as this pregnancy is concerned. My SI joint has been bugging me since day 1 and is really killing me right about now, and of course there are some other usual discomforts of pregnancy, sleeping, peeing your pants, etc. but I'll take all of it for two sweet healthy babies! Holy cow, I can't wait.

Here is a picture of me at 31 weeks today.

And just because I think comparison pictures are so fun, here is a picture of me last time at 41 weeks, the morning I went in to the hospital to be induced. I haven't gained quite as much weight as I had by then, but I think my stomach is about as big around. And still 7 more weeks to go this time. Yay. :) 

I am so incredibly excited to meet these two babies. A girl who moved out of our ward hooked me up with boy crib bedding and all the boy blankets I could ever need, along with some other sweet stuff. It was pretty awesome and such a big help. I still don't have many boy clothes, but we've got time to figure that out (and white onesies in the meantime).

Last night we went to see Fiddler on the Roof with some of my family at the Scera Shell.

The rest of Utah County was there too (free for Pass of all Passes holders). 

We didn't stay the whole time. As if I need another excuse on top of being 31 weeks pregnant with twins, I've had a horrible cold the last few days and wasn't feeling the best. But it was fun while it lasted.

Life is so good. Mckinley is starting to say the most adorable things. I've said this since the day she was born, but I always wonder if she can get any cuter or any more fun, and then she does. Every single day. We are so in love with her.

She had a bad 4 day streak of waking up around 5:30 a.m. ready to go for the day (so not fun for Brandon, who gets up with her while my pregnant self tries to keep sleeping in bed). She's back to waking up around 7 now (still an hour too early if you ask me, but what do you do?). The other night at 1:30 in the morning she started yelling at the top of her lungs "give me water or milk!!!" over and over. It totally cracked me up.

Glad you're posting belly pictures... I keep forgetting to take them - boo! But I'm pretty sure my 27 week belly is about as big as your 31 week belly with twins. I can't believe how big my belly is getting this time. And about boy clothes - I'm going to go through all my boy clothes and get rid of a tons of meaningless stuff 2 T and under. I'll pass along whatever isn't yellowed, old and stretched out. :)

You are so cute pregnant! I just love the pictures. I can't believe how fast the time is going. Before you know it those two little ones will be here! I am so excited for you!
