The Past Couple Days

Wow, so many emotions have happened in the past couple days. I have decided that I am not going to go to cosmotology school this fall. Although this is something that I have wanted to do for many years, I really feel that God is telling me it isn't the right time. I had an extremely bad anxiety attack on Tuesday and Wednesday, the more I hashed things out and the more I talked about not going, the better I felt. When I would talk about going and the "plan" that we had, my anxiety would strengthen. Since I made the final decision, I slept like a baby last night and I feel great today.

Now, I have to tell some truth. We still don't have a named picked out if the baby is a girl. Everytime I think a name is great, the next day I don't like it. There just isn't a name that pops out. So any ideas would be wonderful. Please don't get offended if we don't decide on a name you like, but please throw some ideas out there. We need all the help we can get with this one.

Brooke and Alexcyn

This has really been on my mind since Monday. It really bothers me and I would love an answer, although I believe I won't get one until I meet my Savior.

Brooke and Alexcyn are the twin daughters to a couple from my church. A couple who struggled so hard to even get pregnant. This is something they wanted more than I could even imagine (not that I don't want my baby). Krista, their mother, was due in November as well. On Friday, Krista went into labor. Brooke, the first, died right away. Alexcyn gave a glimpse of hope and tried to fight for her life. On Monday they decided to "pull the plug". Machines were the only thing keeping her alive at that point. What a decision to make? I can't even begin to imagine.

Here I am, healthy, wonderful, and still have a wonderful little baby growing inside. A baby that we didn't even begin to try for. No struggle, no fight. Why? That is my question. What makes me any different than Krista?

Don't get me wrong, I am nothing short of excited for our little baby to come. I can't wait until the day that I get to hold it in my arms. The first time it smiles at me, grips it's hand around my finger, even pees on me. I am looking forward to every moment. My heart just aches for Jason and Krista right now. Keep them in your prayers as they try to unravel the whys and face everyday without their little girls.

God Bless

Week #24

Wow, what a difference in size! This little one is growing by the day. Here is the latest pic!

This is a 12 day difference from the last picture. Now I really think I am starting to look prego, not just fat.

Nothing else has really changed. So I will post later!

Have a great day!!

All Gone!

Well it's official, Grace now lives in Greenville. I pray she enjoys it there. The family is extremely nice. They just wanted a companion for their Border Collie. Both dogs got along wonderfully. Grace adored both of the guys in the family. She even gave them a high five right before she left. I started balling my eyes out when they were leaving, but I know that it is for the better. We will miss her so much and already do.
On a much better note, we went to Babies R Us yesterday and registered for baby stuff. There is so much! It was a little overwhelming at first, but we just took it one isle at a time.
Other than that, not much has changed. We do have a doctor's appointment tomorrow morning.
Have a great day!

Well, in the past 2 weeks, according to others, I have really started to look pregnant. I honestly don't think I look pregnant, I think I just look like I've gained a lot of weight. So as a request from my sister-in-law, who doesn't get her fill of prego belly, I will post some pics.
This is my in my favorite pair of Silvers. They are now being held together with a rubber band!
I also have to wear them with clothes that hang loose enough, so you can't see the rubber band.

These are the only non-maternity jeans that I wear. Eric thinks it is extremely funny that I have invested in rubber bands.

So, for being 5 1/2 months along, I really do not look that pregnant. Maybe I won't get a huge belly, only God knows.

Have a great night everyone!
