My cervix is still holding on strong and the babies are all doing great too! There was one point where we saw 3 sets of feet tangled up together, but of course they all moved before we could get a picture. I was amazed at how the babies can still manage to stretch out almost completely at times. When they do, I swear their little legs look like they are 9 inches long and I have a feeling they are all going to tower over me by the time they turn 4.
I'm starting to feel even more movement from the babies, even little Brody all shoved down south. Bret wants to call him the "Linebacker" of the group because he's "constantly stopping his brothers and sisters form advancing down field"! Their movements have all gone from little nudges here and there to a combination of elbows, feet, hands, and knees pushing against my skin all at once. Thanks to not having much to do during the day, I have found myself awake some nights until 3am just feeling and watching them move, it's amazing!
Here are their profile pics from yesterday:
Bret and I went to the Build A Bear workshop the other night (yes I was in my wheelchair the whole time) and made the girls their very own teddy bear. It felt a little silly at first being the only adults in the store making teddy bears, but I'm so glad we did it and hope our girls will appreciate it too one day! After spending like 30 minutes picking out the right bear and going through a ton of outfits, we decided on cute little blue jean skirts with matching tops and hair bows. While going to the register to check out, Bret noticed a little row of kid computers with little seats 2 feet off the ground where you could stop and officially "adopt" your bear. Again feeling a little silly, we hesitated, but decided "What the heck, let's do it". So here we are 6 foot 2 inches tall guy and 5 foot 1 inch round girl sitting in these little bitty seats in front of little color keyed computers adopting our babies' bears! We named each bear after Kylee and Baxlyn and they received their very own birth certificates that say "Stuffed with love by Mommy & Daddy". Yes, we will go back and do the same for the boys soon! For now, here are the pictures of Baxlyn (left) and Kylee (right).
