Kick Me!

Who knew that I'd ever want to be kicked? My little twins started kicking about a week ago and their little nudges and karate chops are getting stronger and more frequent by the day. They're not strong enough for Brandon to be able to feel yet, but my guess is pretty soon. I'm 23 weeks and since I'll be induced by week 38 (approximately March 7) if I haven't already gone into labor on my own, we're now on the 15 week countdown! That makes it feel so close! Check out my growing belly - not the best pic, but it's all I have right now. Check out my natural glow - j/k!

My Triathletes

The Boys!

Brandon puking!

Bran biking!

My brother Hyrum and husband Brandon competed in a triathlon yesterday - the Turkey Trot in Orem, UT. It was Brandon's first race ever and Hyrum's second. I was so proud. They both finished in just over an hour and pushed themselves really hard. It was really fun to chear them on. They ran first (5K), the biked (10 mi), then swam (350 meters). It was so cool to see them in each event!

Brandon pushed himself a little too hard and had to take a puke break with only three laps to go in the final swimming event. I couldn't help but laugh, but I felt really bad for him at the same time. After a 5 minute ralphing session, he jumped back in the pool and finished his race. That's my baby! So tough! Loved it! Wish my belly would have let me join in.
