Just Like Preschool

Today my day consisted of breakfast, reading time, work time (not on my feet -- strictly sitting jobs for me these days), snack time, lunch time, nap time, a little more work time, snack time, play time, supper time and more play time. Just like in preschool!

We did get a lot done today. Mom more so than me, but I sorted out some flood leftovers and have thrown lots of things out and repackaged the rest in plastic totes to prevent future water damage incidents. Tomorrow I should be ready to start in on the photo project.

Speaking of photos, many people commented or sent emails to the tune of "Holy cow, are you getting big!" OK, they were mostly encouraging, except for the "Ow!" comment. I won't name you, but you know who you are! (But thanks for the long email. I have enjoyed catching up with you again after all these years.)

I don't think I'm much bigger than I was two weeks ago, so for comparison's sake, here are the photos side-by-side. Unfortunately, I didn't hold my shirt in on the 30-week photo. I think I'm about the same in both -- just better dressed at 30 weeks! But you can make your own judgments.

I personally think you look a lot bigger in the 32 wk photo. And this probably doesn't apply, but you look like you've "dropped". Your belly seems to be sitting lower. Maybe it's just the outfit or angle.

OK, it may be time to admit that the growth around here is getting out of hand. But I'm still standing and can still get around without help, so it's all good.

Congrats on 32 weeks! I just came back from an ALP seminar where they announced that alum Wayne Belden (Jasper County) and his wife are having triplets this week.
I have missed getting emails from you this week at work and it is only day two for you being out of the office! I miss you! Keep growing those babies. I can't wait to meet them.

Christy said...

Betsy, you and Ellen are free to send me email anytime. I'll respond and it will be like I haven't even left yet!

I had heard the Beldens were expecting triplets also. Hope everything goes well for them.

Christy and Jeff,

we are so happy that you've reached this huge milestone. I have been thinking about you and praying for you guys. How are you organizing the volunteers these days? I'd love to sign up for whatever help I can give. You look wonderful by the way!!
