Week 36-37 with SWS

We are in the home stretch! Just 9 days from now we will be welcoming our little SWS to the world. Here is how the belly is progressing. Last week I had an ultrasound which told us that SWS was already weighing in at 7.1 lbs! We'll see what the final verdict is next week. In the meantime we continue to work on the house and both kids rooms. I promise to take pictures when I feel comfortable about the progress and share. 

C continues to be very excited to greet her little brother. She sees small things and says that it's "para mi hermano cuando salga del estomago" (it's for my brother when he comes out of the belly). She continues her love for Frozen, enjoying school and time with her friends. Preferring purple to pink (most of the time) our little princess has mastered both languages and is always ready to indulge in chocolate.

Meanwhile D continues to be the best example of good health keeping up his 55lb weight loss with 4 mile runs every other night and a delicious yet nutritious menu of food.

34 Weeks (5 Weeks to GO!)

Today I am officially 35 weeks (4 weeks to go) but this is what I looked like last week at 34. SWS has officially pushed me over into the "walk as little as possible" and "stairs? what stairs?" phase of my pregnancy. I don't remember feeling that with C...but I am with sweet land whale of a boy. C continues to be excited for his arrival, telling us a lot about how she's going to be a great big sister and help dress him and feed him. She hasn't shown any signs of jealously (yet) and even is happy to just watch gifts get opened when they arrive from friends and family around the country (I do ask her for help opening them now and then). It's hard to believe that one month from today we'll already have spend 24 hours with SWS at the's been such a fast pregnancy.
Here is C at 3.4 helping open a gift from our friends the Kerrs.
