Growing and growing and growing.

Just when I thought I couldn't get any larger, I keep growing and growing and growing. But at 31 weeks pregnant, I know I don't have much longer and I remind myself that I do want these big guys to stay put until they are ready to come. It takes a lot to feel 100% about that when I am exhausted, aching and miserable but I look at my precious Bryggen and I realize how amazing every day is.
I am just about ready for their arrival. I need a few things that I expect to get soon. I have the
stroller, car seats, bedroom almost finished, clothes packed, diaper bag almost ready, nannies lined up and much more. I am mentally and emotionally ready but I probably have another month before they arrive. They are right around 4 pounds now and I couldn't be happier.
I want to lift up our Father for all of the blessings in my life. From the beginning of this pregnancy I have kept full faith in the Lord for taking care of these babies and He has. He has surpassed my hopes and dreams for Griffin and Jackson and I look forward to seeing what else He has in store for us.

Bryggen's 2yr Wellness Checkup

Bryggen had her 2 year old wellness checkup the other day. It was a great success. She is 30 pounds, which she has been for over 4 months now but she grew 2 more inches and is 34 inches tall. She is in the 75th percentile for weight and 50th for height. She is growing upwards now and it is sad to see the chunkiness go away. But she is such a delight now as a toddler- most of the time. We are in our terrible twos but some days are great and others are painful. We moved into a big girl bed on her actual birthday (pics to come later). She had been doing great until the past two nights. She keeps waking up in the middle of the night. I am not sure why she is waking up but Mike is out of town so maybe that is it. He will be gone a full week so it will be a long week if she keeps it up. Guess God is preparing me for Griffin and Jackson's arrival. I hope he is preparing her as well.

This is how Bryggen fell asleep after her party. She slept for 3 hours.
Playing with her friends and opening presents. They all seemed to have a good time.
Her cupcakes that Haley made. All three sizes with the special large one for Bryggen.
Playing at Toys R Us on her birthday. Look at her run.
Riding her new 4 wheeler we gave her on her birthday.
All excited for presents on the morning of her birthday.
