Full Term

Today I had my 36-week OB checkup. I am officially "full term" -- just one month left till sweet Ruby makes her grand appearance! I've gained 19 pounds, and I'm blaming the state fair for every pound over 20 that I end up gaining. :) Everything is still going well. I can't believe what an easy pregnancy this has been.
Rae also had her 18-month checkup today. She is 27 pounds, which is 80th percentile for weight, and 33 inches long, which is 95th percentile for height. Where she gets her height is a mystery! She continues to amaze us every day with how verbal she is. She speaks (in my opinion) extremely well for her age. She is also excited for Ruby to come. She has started caring for her baby dolls in ways such as feeding them bottles, burping them, and laying them down to go to sleep. She comes up to my tummy just to say hi to Ruby and give her a kiss. She is going to be a wonderful big sister, and (I believe) a big help to mom.
I will be going back to the doctor every week now until the baby comes, so stay tuned for more updates.
And here -- for your viewing pleasure -- is a new picture of the twins, Vincent and Florence. This is my favorite picture of them so far! Aren't they cute?

Good to hear! Can't wait to meet your little jewel!

Say, is it just me, or does Florie tend to look more like Ava (or Lisa) and Vinnie tends to look more like his Daddy?
