Two Week Wait

My quote for the day.

It is just that I don't want to be discouraged by a negative if it is too early to get a positive.

On Prego Tests!

"Living in true beauty can require much waiting, much time, much tenacity of spirit. We must constantly direct our gazes toward the face of God, even in the presence of longing and sorrow. It is in the waiting that our hearts are enlarged. The waiting does not diminish us. As a pregnant woman is enlarged in her waiting, so are our hearts. God does not always rescue us out of a painful season. You know that he does not always give to us what we so desperately want when we want it. He is after something much more valuable than our happiness. Much more substantive than our helath. He is restoring and growing in us an eternal weight of glory. And hurts." --From the book "Captivating: Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman's Soul" by Stasi & John Eldredge.

Our Brindle Girl Boxer went to her new home on Friday. Her new parents Joe and Jess have named her Noelani (pronounced Noah-lon e) it's Hawaiian for beautiful girl from heaven. Awww. She is just that! Here are some pictures of her at her new home. She is loved, and you can tell she loves them too.

My mom, a future Pilot

My mom has always had the dream of flying a plan. Since I was little I remember her expressing the desire to fly a plane. I remember her even looking into the air force because she wanted to fly an F-16. For Christmas last year, my sister and I arranged for my mom to have a Discovery Flight. It wasn't until this weekend that she was able to take advantage of that gift. I had the privilege of going along with her to take photo's of her flight. The night before, my mom couldn't sleep. She was anxious and nervous at the same time. Saturday morning we arrived at the airfield, and the pilot said that my sister, Ashley could go up with us also. She was very excited. He also said that he would come back, and drop us off so that my Dad and Adrian could go also.

We took off, and headed to my hometown in Henry County. We were amazed at how fast we got there, and how clean everything looked. It looked like a model town, not a real town. Everything looked peaceful, and perfect from the air. My mom was in heaven. She was like a kid in a candy store. Then it was my Dad and Adrian's turn. My dad has flown on small planes many times. I used to have to travel for work, however this was Adrian's first time in a plane ever. She was very nervous when my mom took over for and flew the plan on her own. The Pilot said she was a natural.

My mom is looking into taking lessons, and pursuing a Pilots licence. I am so happy and proud of her for following her dreams. I know she can do anything. I love you and I am proud of you mom!

New Chores

Little Adam learned how to do his own laundry. Not having clean boxers will do that for ya. LOL. He is getting so big. He asked if this could be his new chore. I wish I could record that and play it back in about 4 years when he is complaining that he has to do chores. Kids, gotta love them.

Some will think we are crazy!

We have decided to go for baby #3!!! It was about 3 years ago when we started talking about having another baby. We have never planned to have a baby before, they were more like surprises. Very welcomed surprises. There are the normal things to take into consideration. You wonder if you can afford another child, we figured out that you just make it work. Are we doing it for all the right reasons, am I really ready for diapers, and late night feedings. My answer to all of those, are YES, YES and YES! Our situation is a little different, we have to take a lot into consideration. When I was pregnant with Adam and Alexander, I was very sick. I have Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG) which is a severe form of morning sickness, with unrelenting, excessive pregnancy-related nausea and/or vomiting that prevents adequate intake of food and fluids. Hyperemesis is considered a rare complication of pregnancy but, because nausea and vomiting during pregnancy is normal, there is no clear boundary between common morning sickness and hyperemesis. Estimates of the percentage of pregnant women afflicted range from 0.3% to 2%. We are praying that this time I do not get HG. I was hospitalized with both pregnancy's, and lost a significant amount of weight, 40 lbs when I was pregnant with Alex. HG isn't normal morning sickness, it is all day, everyday, can't get out of bed, sleep on the bathroom floor, multiple ER visits, can't keep water down sickness. With Alexander I was off work from December to March because I was so week, and sick that I couldn't leave my house, let alone go to work. So, SOME PEOPLE WILL THINK WE ARE CRAZY to want to do that again.

So why are we. For us this is a part of having a baby. I believe with all my heart that God can heal this, and that I may not have to go threw with it. However if I do have to go threw with it, we are willing to do that. I believe that I can do all things threw Christ who strengthens me. There is alot more out there in the form of medical help than was unavailable with Adam and Alexander. They still don't know what causes it, and they don't' have a cure, but there is alot of new treatment methods, and I have a great Doctor who will treat it aggressively. Here is a website that I visit alot, it is a website for women that suffer from HG, and is full of info for us, and our family and friends so that they can understand and help us threw it.

So pray for us. Pray that God will heal me from HG, and that I will have a healthy pregnancy, and baby. You can pray for a girl too, Amen, Hallelujah!!

I was talking with the boys the other day about having another baby, and they are both so excited. At first Alex said he didn't a girl, because they are messy, which I think is funny, Have you seen his room? Ha ha. So I talked to the boys about how I get sick, and I asked them to pray. I told them that mommy and daddy were praying that I don't get sick. So they said they would pray. I told them that when ever they think about it, just pray right then and there. Little Adam and I continued to talk about it, and Alex says, "Hello, I am trying to pray here". Apparently we were interrupting his prayer time. So he finished praying, then he said, "Oh, I forgot to say Amen" He was quite for a few seconds, then he said, "OK, I am done." it was so cute.
