Merry Christmas Babies!

I'm a little delayed this time with my post! I'm updating on my 22 week ultrasound that I had, but I'm about to go for my 24 week (VIABILITY!!!!) ultrasound on Jan 2nd! Whoops! haha Anyways... The Babies were obviously excited about Santa coming since I've gotten little to no sleep and all of Christmas Eve they spent doing summersaults in my belly. All. Night. Long. It is amazing to feel how much they've grown now though! Before I was just feeling 'movement'. Now I can definitely distinguish which baby is dancin' in there. Baby Jack feels TOTALLY different than the girls. He does more rolls and tumbles. As far as Miss Clara--she's a mess. Definitely my most crazy baby. Olivia just likes kicking. So many kicks. And now you can start seeing them move from the outside of my stomach. I definitely looks alien-freaky but still pretty cool.

I think they know that Brandon's going to be the "enforcer" in the house (HAHAHA yeah right.) EVERYTIME he puts his hand on my stomach to feel them move they immediately freeze. It literally takes him like 45mins of continuous belly touching to feel anything.

Since they are pretty much running out of room, the ultrasound tech couldn't really get great photos of the babes. Jack was the only one who was cooperative. And they all moved from being Transverse (sideways) to Head down. Yep. Three baby heads in my hips. And yes-it feels just as bad as it sounds.

There's the three noggins.

Here's Mr. Jack from the regular ultrasound view

And Heres the cutie from the 4D ultrasound view (excuse the hole in his head. He doesn't really have a hole in his head). LOOK AT THAT CUTE LITTLE CHICKEN ARM.

This scan was just to check fluid and heart rates so we didn't get updated weights. But, at the scan on the 2nd they should be somewhere just over  1lb each!

And, here's my updated 22week belly photo (that's probably somewhere around 22+4/5)

Of course, Bear is watching over me. Constantly watching over me. Every move I make. But, in the photo I'm {around} 22 weeks and measuring 40inches around, and 37weeks if I were only carrying one baby! Pretty crazy.

THE BEST PART of the last week or so was seeing my BFF From the OBGYN course in Hawaii, Adriana [and her husband, mom, dad, and siblings].

OH HOW I HAVE MISSED YOU!!!! And, she surprised me with the news of her own little bun in the oven!!!!!! I can't wait for Baby D to get here!!!!!

About two weekends ago Brandon and I painted the babys' room. And really it was me taping, untaping, retaping, complaining about the paint all over the carpet and ceiling, and watching. But, kudos to Brandon because he spent his entire Saturday and Sunday painting for the kiddos. The only photo I have is after just the turquoise went up Saturday night. and the crazy mess of randomness in the middle of the room.

You can kind of get the idea though. It's turquoise and the slanted part of the ceiling is now grey. the little piece of wall to the left of the door and next to the closet {not pictured} is chalkboard. We are going to attempt to use that as our log for baby feedings in the middle of the night. We will see how that works out. I'll probably come up with 7 different OCD systems by the time they turn one, however.

And the babies did receive many a gift this Christmas!!! And I purchased my first "triplet specific" items for them, also! I'm obsessed with these preemie onesies!! 

Can't wait to get little photos of all three in their onesies!!!

Until next time! (which hopefully won't be as long as this time...) Keep thinking of our little ones that apparently "start rapid growth" after 24 weeks... {yikes}

Again, Merry Christmas & Happy New Years!!!!!
