25 Weeks!!

Here we are at 25 weeks. How amazing! The belly continues to get bigger, of course. I feel huge. Luckily I'm reassured by girls at work that I'm not and I'm all belly. I do love to hear that. I can see a slight weight gain in my face, but other than that, it does seem to be all belly. My clothes still fit the same except I am outgrowing shirts like crazy. I'll probably be out of the majority of my cousin's shirts that she lent me by the end of the month. I could use some extra sleep but it doesn't look like it's going to happen so I'm dealing. Still having the pain with the numbness and rib pain but again, there's nothing I can do so I'm dealing. Even though I have a low pain tolerance, feeling those babies move really does make it all worth it.
(Here's the 24 week belly-do you see the size of it?? It's my basketball belly.)

So we've started working on the nursery. We decided to go with MONKEYS!! They're so cute and we're very happy about it.

We got one mattress last weekend. The store didn't have two so we're having it shipped. I set up the bedding on the one crib so I could take pictures of it. We're still not sure about the placement of the cribs, but you can at least see how the bedding looks with the crib.

I also made two picture frames that I want to hang on the walls once I staple ribbon to the back. I didn't want every item in the room to be too childish or themey. I think I just made up a word. One frame turned out adorable, the other, tolerable. There are a couple of other things I want to do, but this is the first project completed.

My family shower is this Saturday. I'm so excited. Of course getting all the items for the boys will be great, but I'm so looking forward to the food!! :) My sister made sure to ask what I would like to eat and got them all! BBQ, Fried Chicken Salad, lots of fruit, Chips/Pretzels with dip, homemade queso and a few other items. She said the cake is a pregnant lady so I'm excited to see how it turned out. Plus, I'll be seeing family and friends I haven't seen in a while. Since my belly is mega sensitive I am not looking forward to a bunch of woman touching my belly.
Here's something my cousin April gave me early. She gave us two, one for each boy. It's just so darn cute!!

I think I've posted enough pictures :)

You are looking so cute! I love the monkey bedding - that was my first choice if we had picked an "animal" theme. I love monkeys!
