25 week mark looming

Hello everyone. We just thought we would post a quick, little update. We are at the 25 week mark tomorrow, and boy are we pumped. Moni has only measured 4 contractions during the last three monitoring sessions. The last two have been contraction-free.

Becky made it home from "The Dub" this morning. She brought back some board games from Momma Marsha and Aunt Cathy. It looks like a decent selection of games. Moni finished her sixth book during our Phoenix stint. God bless James Patterson. We might take Steph and Kelly up on bringing down some more books.

We have decided that the Good Lord has put the Broncos in a funk so that the babies and I can concentrate on Moni fully. Or maybe Coach Shanahan has heard about our situation, and that is why he has decided to SUCK so badly at coaching. Despite their struggles, my wife, kids, and I have decided NOT to be like some fair-weather fans (KC Chief fans), and stick with our team through the obvious low time.

Our next post will probably come after our next appointment on Tuesday. We MAY have more pictures at that point. We love all, thank all, and can't wait to see all.

Billy and Moni

I don't know anyone else who can be so pregnant and so beautiful at the same time. You are incredible!
I really enjoy looking at the blog, and LOVE the pics!
You continue to be in my prayers.... I really don't know what else I can do at this point. Keep us posted--
The triage beast tonight....

Hey, Billy, are you losing weight....or is Moni just getting bigger? You actually do look like you have lost some weight.
I have some John Grisham and Nicholas sparks books if you want me to send them.....or bring them in about 2 1/2 weeks!
Love ya!

Monica, it sounds like you are being a real trooper!!! Hang in there, and those little ones will be here before you know it. Billy, I called up Shanahan last night and told him thanks for letting me watch the worst Broncos home loss since '69. I think the AFC West is by far the best division this year, especially with the Raiders leading the pack right now. I will give you a call tonight after Lindsay's volleyball practice...she is still dominating on the volleyball court. She has given 3 people concussions with her powerful spikes. I keep telling her it's only a game focker, but she won't listen and just bomb-bombs in my face. Hang in there and I will give you guys a call tonight.

Glad to hear you're sticking with the team you know and love.... Too bad football is LAME (just teasing, just teasing). Give Moni a big kiss from me- and Moni, give Billy a hair tug to remind him of where he comes from. Love, Cousin Courtney

Looks like you guys are doing great! It was fun to visit with Becky and get the straight poop on your goings on. She probably got sick of everyone asking about you, 6...but she was full of good info. I'm so glad she could be down there with you (and you with her)!
Expect a silly little 'care package' from us in the next week or so. Love you guys!

Moni, how do you get more beautiful every day! What everyone is saying is true and I'm not the least bit prejudice! You are radiant and I really, really love seeing your pictures! Sorry you didn't win much on the Crossword games, I'll try to do better next time!
Love, Mama Budda

Billy & Monica,
Hi guys. I hope that all is going well with you. Billy I hope that in your spare time you have been able to keep up your bowling skills (get it "spare" time, I know bad joke). I enjoy looking at the pictures of you and Monica comparing bellies and keeping up with how your both doing. I look forward to having you guys back in the Dub with the little rug rats.
Best Wishes,

Josh Maze

Hey there gorgeous (I'm speaking to Monica-not you Billy - sorry)! You look amazing. I have been checking your blog and loving your progress. Way to go with the low contractions! That is something I could not ever accomplish. Congratulations on 25 weeks - only 9 more to go!

Keep up the great work!

Lots of love and prayers from the Tubre's - Torey, Jaclyn, Abbey, Tyger, Cullen and Emma

Moni and Billy,
Hey pretty lady, glad to hear your contractions are easing up. Don't feel too bad about the Crosswords, Marsha gave me one and I didn't win either. :-( Enjoy lots of reading, bowling, watching sports now, you may be a little busy for them in just a few weeks. You are ALL in my prayers.

Hi Moni & Billy-

I know the news about Danna isn't what anyone wanted to hear but I'm so thankful that medical science can give you all of this information so you can do everything you can to keep her safe and do what's best for all of the babies! It wasn't all that long ago that women didn't even know they were pregnant until they were almost as far along as you are and you've already learned so many amazing things about your babies and your pregnancy so far! Having that knowledge and being able to be proactive is such a blessing (even though it can definitely add to the worry pile!).

In case you haven't heard, Baby Girl McCorry was born yesterday (10/9) at 6:14pm, 7 lb. 13 oz., 20" long with lots of black hair. No name yet but they're working on it!

We love you and we're putting the prayers into overdrive! You all look wonderful! Keep smiling!

Love you!
