HAPPY BIRTHDAY (about 2 months too late!)

I am such a bad wife. Justin's birthday was September 4th!!!! And I am only now blogging about it. Better late than never I guess. This was his birthday present! A Glock! He loves it. I mostly love it. Guns can be scary, but growing up with my dad (the mighty hunter who owns like 13 guns) he taught me to respect guns and that a little fear helps you have that respect. He's wanted a handgun for a while but I think Justin's fatherly instincts to protect his soon to be little family pushed that decision even more so. I was a little nervous at first to have a gun in the house, but about a week after we got this Justin left for the weekend hunting and I was all alone in our new house. Needless to say, I locked my bedroom door and put the gun next to the loaded clip next to the bed. It definitely helped me feel safer! Nobody better try to come get me in my house! I won't hesitate to shoot! HAPPY BIRTHDAY HONEY!

My How I'VE Grown!!!

I can't believe how fast your belly grows once it starts popping out!!! Above is me at 17 weeks with the twins. Pregnancy was going SO slow until about this point. Then from then on it has gone by so quickly!!! I was so excited and couldn't wait till the next phase and now I'm kinda freaking out! Time needs to slow down just a bit. I'm not sure I'm ready for this!
The twins at 23 weeks. This shows the swelling well I think. My face is MUCH puffier! I haven't been able to feel the bottom of my heels since week 19 and that's when the ankle swelling started. My hands soon followed and now my right hand is constantly going numb and wakes me up at night. Only like 2 more months to go right? At least that's what I keep telling myself. These babies are coming in December! I don't think I'm going to make it to January.
I am currently 27 weeks. These were taken a week ago when I was 26 weeks. It got sooo much bigger in just 3 weeks!! This past week it has now hit my ribs! I can feel the boy moving against my ribs although it doesn't hurt or bother me....yet. It still just feels like little nudges.

Although I complain about the swelling and numbness, I really am enjoying being pregnant. It is amazing to me that there are two babies in there. I do have moments when I'm holding someone else's baby and I realize that they're not so little. Then it hits me "how in the world am I going to take care of two of these at the same time???" It's going to be crazy! But such a fun adventure!!! And I love that I have a husband who is so excited and loved that I have a pregnant belly! It makes life much easier.
