Big Boys.

I can't believe I only have 2 more weeks left of pregnancy. It has gone by so fast, and I have been able to enjoy it so much! I am so ready to meet _______ and ________, and I am starting to wonder what they will look like. They are fraternal, but that doesn't mean they can't look a lot like one another! I am hoping that they have very different features, but I'll just have to wait and see!

I went swimming over the weekend at our friend's house. It felt so good to be "weightless" and just float! Once I got out of the water though, it was a harsh reminder of my body's growth during the past few months! Speaking of growth, we went to the doctor this morning and got new stats on our boys...our BIG boys! They are both measuring about the same at 5 lbs. 11 oz. and about 18 inches long. That means that they will be around 6 lbs. at birth- yahoo!

I have not had any contractions yet (that I know of), so things are still on track for our C-section on May 16th! I started to make my hospital packing list, and I think I got a little out of hand. I guess it is better to be prepared, but it really shouldn't be that big of a deal since we live maybe a mile from the hospital! *gotta love Abilene*

This is my last week of working at Highland before the boys come. It will be so hard to not see the people I have to grown to love so much on a daily basis. I know I will be plenty busy, but I will still miss my friends at work.

Names on the X list: Lenny, Pete, Stone, Eddie, Jimmy, Eric, Robert
by the way...I told Zach to give me some boy names to put on this list and these are the names he gave. Then he told me that these are some of the greatest guitarists of all time.


Belly Shot! 35 Weeks and growing every day!

Kara, I can't wait. I talked to Shaye and she says that Gramama and Shawn are going to come down. Wow! Good thing we have the house there.

You look great and I think that the boys will have a great mom.

I'm so excited to see their little faces and to get to hold them! Whenever I'm pregnant I hope I look as good as you!

Kara, you look FABULOUS!!! I cannot imagine what it feels like to have 12 lbs of baby in there! I know you will be busy when the boys come, but please post some pics and their names soon after they arrive! I won't be able to stand the suspense any longer :) Good luck on these last few days...

So exciting! I can't wait! I did not realize this is your last week at Highland. How could I have missed it. I love you and appreciate you more than you know. Thanks for all you do! You are amazing - those boys are going to be lucky to call you mom. See you soon!
