"Well, isn't that special"

"Well, isn't that special."  That is what I say in my head about the fact that there is a hurricane named Irene looming out there.  I will say, Irene is the resident trouble maker of the womb.  She usually is kicking Anna in the head or sticking her rear in Brooks' face. 

We've crossed the 24 week mark which is very exciting.  About 10+/-  weeks to go, hopefully.  Sometimes 10 weeks sounds like an eternity yet I know it will be here before we know it.   The girls are all growing and over a pound now.  Anna (baby A) is still the smallest, but she is not far behind Irene (B) and Brooks (C).  I've now moved from house arrest to more strict bed-rest as a result of the doctor seeing some very early signs that could indicate pre-term labor is wanting to make an appearance sooner than we wish.  Nothing too major at this point and with a little bit of medicine and keeping my feet up hopefully we can nip that in the bud.

One major perk of going to the specialist in Memphis is the fancy equipment.  They have super cool sonograms and we always get to see the 4D images.  A few weeks ago we got good face views of Anna and Irene, and yesterday Brooks was showing off her mug.  They never all cooperate on the same day.   It is hard to tell in these shots but there are always limbs belonging to other babies in the picture.  We continue to be amazed and amused at how crowded and all over each other they are.

Anna on 8/3, Irene on 8/3, Brooks on 8/21

The nursery is coming along.  Here is a little peak.  Right now we are starting with one crib and then when we need to we will put up the other two.  Until then we will keep the bed in there for easier night time management for whoever is on duty.   As you can see the lighting was very different in these pictures, thanks to my fancy cell phone camera.  May need to upgrade the camera soon....

I'm not sure where I'm going to hang these cute bird pictures.  Lot's of blank wall space so I'm going to wait to see what looks best where once I find some other things for the walls.  Check out the artist on Etsy, she has really cute stuff:   Murray Designs

I got a good laugh the other day because someone found my blog by searching "not too girly nursery".  Sorry lady, this is clearly not the place for you.

Oh and I'm still getting huge.  Below is the latest progression shot.  Honestly a few inches bigger when I'm already this big doesn't even seem to show that much.  However the wrinkles in the shirt (or lack thereof) are quite telling.
