All of this takes a backseat to what's really important, though - my wife and the two baby girls she is carrying inside of her. Currently, she is 36 weeks pregnant. With twins, this is considered nearly full-term and we've been told we can expect their arrival any time now. This undoubtedly will change our lives forever, and we are very much looking forward to finally meeting our daughters.
In the run-up to the girls being born, I have been doing my best to set myself up with work that can be done between feedings, diaper changings, and anything else baby-related. I think I'm just about where I need to be, but I realize that the reality of the situation will likely be different once we get in to the swing of things. As much as I'd like to write more, I will most likely be concentrating on photo editing and poster creation for the foreseeable future. For me, writing requires my kind of peace and quiet (which means my favorite loud music to drown everything else out) and uninterrupted periods of an hour at the very least. I don't think these moments will be readily available for quite some time from here on out. But, with months and months of backlogged photos to work through, I won't be hurting for things to do!
Here are a few pictures taken over the past week. We've been sticking fairly close to home recently as these pictures reflect.
Playing in the wet snow at home
Theuern, Bavaria, Germany - stopped here after a doctors appointment the other day
Pilsen, Czech Republic Christmas Market - the last real day trip taken before deciding to stick closer to home (I still need to process this picture!)
