26 week belly pics

Sorry these pics are almost a week late, but as some of you know I've been immersed in my advanced practice project, which is my final project for my doctoral progam for the past week or so.  Today I finally turned it in and I am scheduled to defend it on August 23rd.  Then I will officially be done with all the requirements for my Doctorate in Rehabiliation Sciences.  It's been a long 4 years of working full time and going to school, and while I have learned a lot, I am ready to be done.  I would say I'm ready to have my evenings and weekends totally free, but I realize I have a pretty short window before these babies arrive and free-time seems like a thing of the past! =)  

Speaking of a short window, I've had a few mini-panic moments over the last week or so as I realized that these babies could be here in 6 weeks (or even less)!!!  Of course we are hoping it's closer to 9 more weeks, but even that is only two months!!  AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!  (that's a glimpse into what happens in my brain during a mini-panic moment)  =)  I know we are just about as ready as we can be, minus getting our cloth diaper order in, but still, I feel like you probably can't every REALLY be ready for having three babies all at once.  But I know that we will figure it out, just like we've figured out everything else over these past 12 years together.  Oh yeah, I realized that I never posted that August 3rd was our anniversary.  It's been three years since we exchanged vows on a gorgeous deserted beach in Fiji.  Seriously with the number three this year! =)  We both feel incredibly lucky to have the wonderful loving relationship that we have and it seems like we couldn't love each other any more...and then the next day comes, and it seems like our love has grown yet again.   

Our love is kind of like Michelle's belly right now actually. =)  Every day it gets just a little bigger.  A few days go by and we don't pay that much attention to it, and then BAM it hits us how much bigger it is.  This week has really been one of those BAM weeks.  Unfortunately, some of that realization has been brought on by how uncomfortable Michelle is getting.  She now says multiple times a day how heavy her belly is and continues to have trouble getting comfortable.  She has though, been sleeping pretty well for the past couple of weeks so we are both thankful for that small miracle!  Okay, enough rambling...here are the belly pics you've been waiting for!

  1. It's a good thing that Michelle has a sense of humor, she's gonna need it for these final weeks!
    Good luck!!!!
