Bramell, Party of Five: Tick Tock, Tick out, she might EXPLODE!

Tick Tock, Tick out, she might EXPLODE!

Thought I'd do a little Bramell update while I'm sitting on my nest. We've made it to 35 weeks and 4 days. I've about decided that I must be the only freak of nature who could carry twins to 40 weeks (if they let me). Thank goodness, surgery is set for June 25 so there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I am just about miserable--and the 90 degree temps are not helping a bit!! I am planning to work this week from home on my laptop, then start my maternity leave on June 14. Getting a shower and "dressed" for work is becoming too much of a chore and I only have a couple of outfits that are even comfortable enough to wear out of the house.

Let's see.....what else. Oh, we found renters for our house. BIG YAY! They are going to move in the middle of July, so that will take a big burden off us right now. It's a couple moving here from Atlanta, so we don't know them...just got lucky!

We are having some minor repairs done on the XTerra so we can get it up for sale. We've decided to take the plunge and go ahead and get a minivan. We've looked at and driven some, and they are definitely what we need for our growing family.

Becca will start at her new daycare on June 16, and seems to be excited about it. I was trying to avoid too much change at once for her, but what can we do?? She'll be fine, and the babies will join her there when I go back to work.

As far as baby prep, I think we are set. We have just about two of everything and a great stock of supplies, thanks to a lot of awesome friends and family. Lee took diaper inventory the other day and figures we have about 2400 diapers---which we calculate should last about 4 months!! Crazy. That's a lot of wiping butts!

Enough for now. Going to go put my swollen, tired feet up and rest. Becca is napping and Lee's working in the yard, so I have a golden opportunity here. Stay tuned....the next post just may be THE ONE!!!


  1. I always look forward to your updates.... It won't be long now. Two weeks and three days is nothing compared to the time that has already passed. Looking forward to meeting those 2 new precious babies! Take care. Oh yeah, I'm also looking forward to seeing you drive that dreaded mini-van!

    Love to all...

  2. I am glad that you are going to go ahead and take off work. I think it is a good idea. You need the rest before the babies get here anyway. I am so excited to meet them! I think about who they will look like and what color hair they will have all the time! Not long now! And I agree, the mini-van will be the best. Hopefully you will call me soon to get up there quick! I love you!

  3. Wow Rhonda! Talk about lots of major changes happening. It sounds like you have done a great job planning and getting prepared for the big arrival, which is a task in itself when your carrying 2 and already have one. You're going to be so amazing to these new babies!! What a great family!
    Trust me about lots of changes quickly, but I just remind myself to take it one day at a time sometime and let the little stuff slide. :) I'm going to be "blog stalking" from now on waiting for the big post. :) Take care!!
