She's a girl!!!! We are SOOOOOO excited. She was moving all over the place during the ultrasound and we even got to see her mouth sucking! It was so cute!!! I'm so thankful!

I'm going to get an ultrasound tomorrow. Heath is home for a week and a half (Praise God) and I am so happy I can barely contain it!!!

Midwife Visit

Today I went to the midwife and had an ultrasound. The verdict is........they THINK it's a girl! She said it is still to early to be certain but she thought (and I thought too) that it looked like a girl! She made me an appointment to come back in two weeks for another ultrasound. Then she said she would feel more comfortable telling me what it is for sure. (okay! I realize you can never be sure but whatever!) So I'm super excited about that. The children loved seeing the baby. We could see everything! We could see the mouth opening and closing and the fingers and toes, the nose...even the lens of the eye! It was very cool.

After the appointment the children and I went to Olive Garden and Books-a-Million to celebrate. It was a fabulous day. The only thing that could have made it better was if Heath could have been there. I'm hoping he will be for my next ultrasound in two weeks.

This one's for you Melynda....

Okay, so it's been a LONG time.

I click on new post frequently and decide I have nothing to say that anyone would care to read!

Heath is gone to MO again (Yuck) and I have been feeling REALLY sorry for myself. Pining and whining way too much. But as little as I write on my blog I LOVE to read other blogs. Well, I was reading one called Generation Cedar and she was requesting prayer for a fellow blogger. This fellow blogger's husband and oldest child were killed in a care accident just this August. She looked about my age and had 4 children. She and her husband had just decided to have more children. stupid did I feel.

Taking my blessings for granted. Nice Heather, real nice. Way to go.

I cried for her (then again I seem to be crying about everything these days...I swear...this pregnancy is odd like that) and I prayed for her. And she is on my mind a lot.

So everyday I'm working on thankfulness. I have so much. And so often I'm grumpy. Just like the Isrealites in the wilderness who had all their needs supplied and always grumbled. I alwasys think I would NEVER be like that. But then I am.
