36 Weeks

I still can't believe how close we are getting to meeting our newest family member! Boy? Girl? I can't wait to find out!! I'm in the midst of week 36 and the fact that the calendar finally says "October" is crazy! I had a routine appointment yesterday and everything is looking good. Last Friday, after cleaning the house like crazy all morning, I was feeling pretty uncomfortable- then I remember feeling very similar just before Riley and Tyson "dropped". Sure enough, Saturday morning I woke up with a whole new shape to my belly, a little relief in my breathing, and a lot more discomfort in other places!

Now that school has started giving me homework to do each week and I'm a bit more uncomfortable, I think we'll be taking it easy in the next few weeks. Which probably means I'll have a couple of stir-crazy toddlers on my hands, but we'll get through it! The kids now have the cold I am getting over, so they'll be needing lazy days to get healthy anyhow. My sister and niece, Robyn and Cassidy, came to visit on Tuesday night and we've been enjoying their company. They leave first thing tomorrow morning, but we managed a trip to the zoo yesterday and a big shopping outing this morning. I always enjoy spending time with my sister and watching the 3 cousins interact, I only wish they lived closer!

You look so beautiful Brooke! I know you are so excited to meet baby #3. Any names picked out or are you keeping that a secret? Jill
