Well since I am at my new blog now I am determined to start fresh.
So as a breath of fresh air fills my lungs here I go!
Today has been a good day. I am home sick with Austin. We have been battling colds (nothing serious) and we are having one lazy day. He is still down for his nap so I get some "Mommy time". He has grown so much in the past couple of weeks. Not only physically and emotionally but spirtually. Just this morning as we were eating breakfast, he reminded me that we had not said grace. So we did and all was good in the world. He then told me today that he loved Jesus. I can't really explain what that does for my soul. We also talked about the baby. We are in the process of setting up the crib and the will-be nursery, and this promotes a lot of discussion. "Am I the baby's friend?" Of course you are!! "Yes I love the baby!" "Does he love me?" Of course. You are his/her big brother and that is VERY special! With a big smile he then romps off to play with some toys.
He is truely amazing in his sheer love of all things. His passion. For only 3 he has such wisdom. We are also starting homeschooling this week. We are beginning with a weekly bible verse and a weekly letter. He will get a picture of an item that starts with that letter as well. Even though he is still young, he is just so smart I know he will do well! Wish us luck!
The baby is doing great. I am still feeling little kicks here and there. I also had my blood work yesterday for downs/neural tube defects. I am nervous. Who isn't? I am so guilty of profound worry. However I know that God's plan is perfect, and whatever is to be will be. So I am waiting for those and will get them sometime next week. Our next ultrasound is the 25th and I am really looking forward to that. We will be half way there. Half way. That is an amazing milestone in and of itself.
I still haven't taken any belly pictures. I really need to do that. I will make that a priority this weekend.
Adam and I are getting settled into our new home and it is starting to actually feel like home. What a nice feeling! I am so glad I have my best friend through all of this! I wouldn't be able to do it without him!!
Well I have to go for now and use the rest of this "mommy time" cleaning! God Bless!
