Pictures! Finally!

We weren't able to get our camera's software to work on any of our computers, so we ordered an SD-USB reader. We're hoping it works for a while. We don't have much to report. Everyone is doing fine. Paul is getting ready for an exam this weekend. I have promised not to go into labor until after Saturday. I've been having contractions at night that last a couple hours but then stop. I feel like the baby has dropped (more frequent trips to the bathroom) and things are progressing, but probably not that fast. I walked around at a 3-4+ with Ewan for a couple weeks before anything really happened. Every appointment my doctor would say, "See you tonight. You're water's gonna break sometime in the next couple of hours. If not, which I doubt, I'll see you in two days." Yeah, I saw him every two days for a week and a half! I've asked him not to get my hopes up and that I would let him know when I was in labor. He just laughed and said that he trusted me. We have everything ready for this little person except a going-home outfit. I'm still trying to find the perfect outfit. The girls came home in preemie outfits, so I can't really reuse 'em. I have a little boy outfit, just in case. The twins are basically potty-trained. We've been working on it for almost a week. I remind them every so often, and we run to the bathroom. They're doing better at letting me know when they need to go. Ewan doesn't like not being included in things. He can now reach the door knobs, so I have to lock the bathroom when I'm helping the girls. It gets a little crowded with three under three and a big pregnant lady! He gets rather angry and sticks his little hands under the door and cries, "momma...! iaaahhh!" He calls the twins collectively "I-a". He knows who's who, too. Well, onto the pictures!
They will push anything/anyone around the island in the kitchen.

Enjoying March in AZ.

He's such a goof!

Paul will push them around in the wheel barrel while I make dinner. They really enjoy it!

Someday we'll have grass...well, artificial grass!

Helping Daddy with their shovels.

I have a lot of pictures of the twins sleeping. I decided that I needed some good ones of Ewan.

Pictures from when the Uncles came. We went to the zoo. There's a tiger in their somewhere!

Enjoying some goldfish while looking at the animals.

Kett pushed Ewan around, and kept stealing his goldfish.

The elephants. Ewan loves to make elephant noises.

The giraffe. We were going to feed them, but the line was really long!

Ewan just as cute as can be!

Checking out the rhino.


We stopped and looked at the huge fish and the ducks.

Olivia kept calling them NEMO.

Dancing with Uncle Rand.

Olivia, Kett, Ewan and Aislee.

Preschool. The girls wanted to color Rainbows while the boys wanted to stay in the playroom with the racecars.

One of the little guys in preschool.

We've been watching Incredibles in the car. So...we had to be super heroes when we got home. I don't think they understand why the Incredibles do not have capes.

Pretending to be asleep.

These are really cute pics! Everyone is looking more grown up. That's good the twins are potty-trained. That will hopefully make life a little easier with the new kiddo. Wowzers, good luck with the end of your pregnancy!
