Belly Pictures for weeks 28-32

   WOW! I can’t believe that we are already to 32 weeks these babies are going to be here before we know it! To be honest we are getting a little nervous and scared!

  Things have changed so much in the last few weeks to start my belly is HUGE!!!!  And as you can imagine now that it is so BIG the wonderful marks of pregnancy have appeared …. yep “STRETCH MARKS!” It’s something all mothers know of but prefer not to speak of! I don’t have too many right now but I am SURE they will only get worse! I really didn’t notice them at first because we don’t have a full length mirror at the new house yet and I can’t see anything past my belly button. But once I saw them I was somewhat sad. I must have been delusional to think that I would only get minimal marks carrying triplets!

   The other BIG change is at my 29 week Dr. appointment I was told that we needed to start thinking of a C-section date. At first I wanted to pick the furthest date possible saying that they will come when they come but, after speaking with our Dr. we decided on an earlier date at 36 weeks, because of all the risks of carrying them past 36 weeks. As you can imagine we were nervous about deciding to take them so early but the Dr. said pending an serious issues the babies may be able to come home with us or spend no more than 2 weeks in the NICU, of course we know it’s all up in the air until they arrive.

   But our  official c-section date is August 23, 2011. So pending any surprises that will be their birthday! Two days after their Daddy’s and 16 days before their Big Brother’s. So I will have 4 boys under 2 years old when they are born! CRAZY!!!

Here are the last few weeks belly pictures…Click here, here, and here if you want to see previous belly pictures.

28 Weeks : 42 1/4 inches around


29 Weeks: 42 1/4 inches around


30 Weeks: 43 3/4 inches around


  • Try to over look the fact that we don’t have switch plates yet we are still putting the finishing touches on the house.

31 Weeks 43 3/4 inches around



32 Weeks 45 inches ( yes you read correctly!)



I can literally feel my belly stretch and grow it is not as painful as it is ITCHY!!! I know I am getting close to surpassing my height at 17 inches left and 27 days left!

A Triplet Baby Shower!

  On July 10 some wonderful friends and family threw me a beautiful baby shower!



  • They even displayed some of the gifts that were sent early beautifully!

   The shower had some surprises as well! My Aunt Laurie and cousin Alana as well as my S-I-L Sarah and her three sweet babies drove the long distance to come to the shower. It was wonderful to be able to share the day with them!

  It was rather funny to try and maneuver ALL the adorable outfits and gifts  around my belly! Along with the fact that EVERYTHING came in 3’s!  and I only have two arms so I used my belly as an extra arm! Smile






   I was truly over whelmed by the generosity of my family, friends, and church family!  I received LOTS of necessities, adorable clothes, and of course ……



  People were even sweet enough to remember Willie and got him a matching outfits to go with his brothers! This is just one!!


Here are a few pics from the shower…


Of course once the festivities were over William & Willie had to come and check out all our new goodies!



Thank You so much everyone for coming and for all these wonderful gifts! I feel blessed to have all of you in my life!

What’s Up With Willie?

  I have noticed that since I have been pregnant with the triplets I haven’t posted much about Willie. So here is a little update of our sweet Willie Boy!

   To start he is FAR from being a baby anymore! He is in FULL toddler mode, at 22 months! I know lucky us! But with all the challenges that come with having a toddler come the sweet surprises as well! Smile

  He has become quite a chatter box! He has the sweetest names for his cousins; he loves them ALL so much!! He is obsessed with Mickey Mouse “mee meee” and knows what he likes and dislikes (mostly things that I ask him to do)

   I love being able to wake up and spend each and everyday with him! He is so sweet and FULL of love especially for his DADDY!!! He has SERIOUS “Daddyitous!” It just melts my heart in the evenings when he hears the door open and runs straight to his daddy yelling “Daddy! Daddy!” I am not quite sure how William is going to pick up ALL FOUR boys as they greet him each evening in the coming years!

   This summer Willie has adjusted well to moving to a new house; which I am sure the new pool helped. He has been such a good helper helping his daddy any chance he can! We just hope he adjusts well to his 3 new baby brothers just as well!

  This past month we started swim lessons! He has really enjoyed them since he learned how to follow his instructors rules. It has amazed William and I how much he has learned not just in his ability to swim, since he still needs to learn how to pick his head out of the water when he swims. But mostly the pool safety skills! We couldn’t be more proud of him. He is definitely our little fish! He would swim ALL DAY and ALL NIGHT if we would let him!

  I thank God everyday for blessing us with such a wonderful son! I will try to post more regularly about ALL 4 of my boys!

Here are a few pics of my handsome little man!
