29 Weeks

We are so glad to have made it this far. Every week seems more assuring that the babies will all be ok when they arrive! They are enjoying the belly for sure! They are moving and kicking all over the place and it seems more and more intense every day. Truly amazing, I just hope they have enough room! Below is what is going on during week 29, according to

"Your baby now weighs about 2 1/2 pounds (like a butternut squash) and is a tad over 15 inches long from head to heel. His muscles and lungs are continuing to mature, and his head is growing bigger to make room for his developing brain. To meet his increasing nutritional demands, you'll need plenty of protein, vitamins C, folic acid, and iron. And because his bones are soaking up lots of calcium, be sure to drink your milk (or find another good source of calcium, such as cheese, yogurt, or enriched orange juice). This trimester, about 250 milligrams of calcium are deposited in your baby's hardening skeleton each day."

Lot's of calcium....I better drink MORE chocolate milk :)

This weekend many things were accomplished!!! Denise got here on Thursday and was an amazing help around the house and in the nursery. We washed preemie and newborn clothes, along with sheets and blankets. It was so fun to fold the little clothes!!! We also packed a bag for the babies and packed my bag for the hospital. Thank you Denise for ALL of your help, I am so blessed. I ordered a small bookcase that will fit in between 2 beds in the nursery which will give us more room for books, toys, etc. We will be packed from wall to wall, but what can you expect. Jack also brought the toy box inside and put the toys we have already in the box. The stain is beautiful on the toy box and he did a great job. (I will get a picture this week.)

We got a sneak peak on the pictures we took 2 weeks ago. Heather will be sending many more, but here are a few she sent on! She is super talented!
