hard to believe

A year ago today the Lord took my Pops to be with Him in Heaven for eternity. I can't believe that it's already been a year. It's weird how life keeps going on and becomes the new normal. I can't believe its been a year since I have seen him and talked to him. I loved being able to pick up the phone and call my pops, if you were having a crappy day he was the one to call. Yes, even as he was laying there on his death bed he would pick up his cell phone and make you laugh. I miss that. I miss not being able to take care of him and massage his legs and feet with no toes and hearing him call me his "nurse angel". I could go on and on about the things I miss about my pops but the one thing that is hitting me hard is that he won't be there to see the birth of his first great grandchild. He loved being a grandpa and was the best and I know how he so couldn't wait to be a great grandpa. I pray that he will get a glimpse of it from Heaven. We will make sure ou

Not a lot to update on. I am still fighting nausea really bad but oddly enough I am thankful for it. I'm now reaching 7 weeks so that means our little bean is now the size of a tic tac! Wow! So sweet. I talked to my nurse tonight and got my results back from my blood test. She said that everything looks great, my numbers were 60,000 and said there is no need to do anymore blood. Yeah! I was nervous all day. 5 more days and we get to see the peanut again!! This thing called pregnancy is nuts, it seriously messes with your body and mind. I find myself getting mad over dumb things and crying over the most pathetic things. I'm so sorry if I start crying on you for some reason....bare with me. Chris is learning too :) Lets pray the next 8 months fly by.

Oh my. I can't even begin to describe the way I have been feeling because I might lose it (again). I have been nauseous on and off for about two weeks but it was tolerable. Yesterday morning I woke up with this terrible feeling in my stomach. It was like when you wake up starving and all you want to do is eat to ease the feeling. I thought that's what I was having so I cooked up 2 eggs and made a yummy egg sandwich and by the time it was all ready I couldn't even look at it. So, I cooked up some oatmeal and ate it quick. Chris was the lucky receiver of the egg sandwich. I hurried and got ready for church and then got back in bed. Somehow made it to church and at the end of the service my husband so kindly pointed out that I had put my shirt on inside out. Yes, it was that kind of day. Once we got home I got in my sweats and spent the rest of the day in bed. Chris was waiting on me like a sweetheart and when we came to see what I wanted for lunch i said "nothing!"

O baby!!!!

There is some big news going around.....maybe you've heard...we're having a baby!! It's still hard to believe. We found out on Feb 3rd and kept it a secret until we got all the blood work back. It all seems so surreal. This is what we have been waiting for and praying about every single day. I am SO thankful that the Lord makes all things new. We never lost hope but there were days that were really hard to get through. We are so blessed to have such an amazing support group of family and friends. The Lord taught us so much in our time of waiting. We are thankful that we didn't have to wait very long although it seemed like eternity. He taught us how to be content, patient, waiting on Him, trusting in Him, being joyful in everything, being still and listening as He speaks and most of all we learned how to pray. I don't think we have ever prayed as much as we have since we lost our 1st baby in October. I can't even explain the hurt that it created in my heart. We

short and sweet

Catalina was great. We had beautiful weather and had a nice cozy weekend. We had a wonderful Valentines day....went out to a delicious dinner which was the first for us in 5 years! We always eat in on valentines so it was kinda fun to join the madness and go out. My grandpa had major surgery yesterday and it went well except he is fighting an infection right now. We are praying for complete healing and peace. Please join us in praying. That's all for now, it's been a long week. I will update more soon! Promise!
