how big will it get?

Well, I haven't posted a picture of me in a long time, and there is good reason! I am now 35 weeks and I've gained a respectable 38 lbs. I'm very happy the babies' weights are good, but 38 lbs on a 5'3 frame is a little scary! But, since this will most likely be my only time to be pregnant, I wanted to document the moment and post these pictures.
Also, the Dr. said I probably have 2 more weeks before I deliever. We are on the countdown! Please keep us in your prayers for healthy babies and an uneventful delivery. Thanks!

Jay"bird" & Wil

laughing at Nonni!
Someone looks like their Mama
Oh those eyes!
So sweet!
Sorry Mom, not flattering, but y'all look just alike!
Wil & Nonni
The past couple of weekends, I've been lucky enough to spend with my nephews, Jay and Wil. I want to dedicate this post to them.

First born, Jay, aka "Jaybird" is everyone's heart. He was born into some very busy years for Ashley and therefore he organically became everyone's child. We desperately love that little boy.

Wil is a year and 5 months. He has quickly come in and won everyone over. Personally, I just didn't know how we would all love anyone as much as Jay, but Wil has made a room all for himself in our hearts. In one word, he is PRECIOUS!

As you can see in the pictures, they could not be any different looking (very reminisent of me and Ash). They have completely different personalities as well...Jay is a typical first child I think. He is such a sweet boy, but he needs lots of attention. He is currently obsessed with Thomas the Train. Wil is just happy to be alive. He loves life and especially food or anything associated with eating! He also has the funniest little "shark tooth" (as billy says) -- a tooth that hangs down a little more than the others. SO FUNNY! Look close and you might see it!

Gus did not get to be with us, but we all love him and can't wait to find out "who" he is!

My 3rd Grade Team

Wow, I have been busy being showered! I've had 2 more showers since the one my friends threw in Birmingham. The first was my shower at school. My 3rd grade team threw a great baby shower and I feel so lucky to work with such a wonderful group of people. A week later, my Mom's friends in Gadsden also threw me a great shower. My Mom has a great group of friends and I enjoyed celebrating with them. We also had some "surprise" guests at the shower! Danielle, Lucy and Crosby showed up all the way from Tennessee. It made the day just that much more special to share it with them.
Thank you to everyone who worked SO very hard to make these showers happen. I appreciate everything and feel oh so blessed.
