Happy Birthday...

to Ringo!! Our first 'baby' is 6 years old today! I've been spoiling him with treats and bits of my peanut butter sandwich today. He's very excited about becoming a big brother. He already loves to play with the baby toys... we'll have to work on that. :)

Everything is still looking on-track for a Monday birthday for the new little Correa's. They both did well during the ultrasound this morning and I'm hanging in there. I am excited to finally see these babies in just a few days!!!

37 Weeks!

We made it to "month 9"! I think two watermelons in my belly about sums up how I'm feeling these days. Well, watermelons with very strong arms and legs that like to poke and kick. Funny story - last night we were laying in bed and talking and watching my belly move around. Juan was talking to the babies and blew a rasberry near my belly button - just to be funny. I immediately got one of the hardest kicks I've ever felt right where he blew the rasberry. I didn't know if it was just a coincidence, so he did it a few more times and every time I got another huge kick! I'd like to believe that the baby was playing with him and reacting to the sound/vibration in a 'laughing' kind of way - not in a startled kind of way. Either way, it was entertaining to us ;)

There's not too much going on these days around here. We had a fun Halloween hanging out with Steve and Emily. Juan made some very yummy chicken enchiladas with homemade tomatillo sauce and Emily made her famous rice and beans and two buttermilk pies! Yum!

We had a bunch of very cute trick-or-treaters come by the house. My personal favorite was a little boy dressed up as Billy Mays (RIP), complete with a bottle of OxyClean and a magic marker beard. We ran out of candy pretty early in the night. Luckily Steve and Emily had a backup supply at their house and they were able to save the day!

I'm just continuing to take it easy. One week from right now we'll be getting started with our scheduled c-section! (unless they decide to come on their own before then...) Yay!!! Our next and last appointment before the babies arrive is Wednesday morning to see how the babies are doing in there. The finish line is near!
