|Ry cooking breakfast for everybody while camping. He picked out that hat for himself on our way and I had mixed feeling about it until I saw him wearing it cooking the next morning. Love this man!|
|My niece and nephew brought their slack line. They are more like Aunts and Uncles to my kids. Finn worships Uncle Sky-yer. I absolutely love Finn's smile!|
We went camping with Ryan's side of the family last weekend and it went by way too fast! We love camping, there's nothing better. If we could go every weekend we would. Every year movies get left in the trailer all Winter. Lion King was one of many this time. When Finn saw it he said Remember I got that when I pooped on the potty?...When Colum was here. I vaguely remembered. I can't believe he can still remember that. It was so long ago. I know it makes him happy to have little memories like that about Colum. Once upon a time when he had a little brother that lived with us.
Now back to the grind of things. We are busy preparing for the 5k. I can't believe it's only 17 days away. We hope to get more registrations by then. If you were planning on registering please do it soon. To go to the site click here.
Our new house is slowly coming along. The people who lived in it before smoked in the attached garage and the smells seeped in. And I'm happy to report the cigarette smell is gone.
It's been good and bad living without most of our stuff. I didn't think it would take this long for our house to get done so I didn't pack very smart. I want to get rid of a lot of stuff, especially now that we won't have a basement to hide stuff away anymore. At the same time 3 babies requires so much, I have a feeling our house is going to look pretty cluttered for a couple of years. I'm getting a strong urge to start nesting and it's so hard because I can't.
My last Dr appointment was almost 2 weeks ago. The girls were all perfect. They are measuring perfect and are so cute. My Dr even told me that this is a picture perfect triplet pregnancy and I'm a picture perfect triplet carrier...as of right now. I go back again on Friday and I hope everything stays picture perfect.
I went to the grocery store on Thursday to pick up some groceries to take camping. The same thing happens every time. I walk in and I think maybe this time won't be so bad. Slowly my legs grow weaker and weaker and I start to feel light headed. By the last isle I'm taking small baby steps and can barely walk. I feel like I'm going to collapse. My body is telling me I can't do that anymore. I can't do much of anything anymore....except gestating of course. That's what is important. Looks like I will be sitting in the motorized shopping carts again. I've been this big when I was pregnant with the boys. I read that the weight of 3 babies can sometimes push on a major blood vessel cutting off oxygen to you brain and even to your babies. I feel like a total lazy wimp. I didn't expect to feel like this until I got freakishly big.
It's going to be a long Summer.
We had to drive up to our house Sunday after we got back from camping. I sat on a chair while Ryan carried scraps of wood out to the garbage. I looked down and my left ankle and foot was swollen. I took off my sandal and there was a deep indent where the strap went. I'm 22 wks. I sorta can't believe this is happening already. I had faith that maybe being pregnant with girls I'd get lucky and this wouldn't happen to me.
It's going to be a long swollen summer!
