Cereal anyone??

Today is not a good pregnant day, I feel very naseous and have all day...I made stew for dinner but can't even really bring myself to look at it, let alone eat it. I want to eat Count Chocula cereal all day long!! Breakfast, lunch and dinner. Matthew and I went to the mall today, he got a haircut and it looks so cute. I bought some Crocs, for anyone who doesn't know or have a pair, I highly recommend them. They are made of rubber and are oh so comfy. I also bought a strawberry orange smoothie and Matthew kept wanting some so I let him try...he loved it!! I ended up putting some in his little sippy and he gulped it down! I love that little man so much!! My friend Sherry and I were suppose to go to the movie tonight, but her little boy has been plaqued with reccurent high fevers for over a week now, so she had to cancel! Poor little guy. Hopefully he recovers soon!

Happy Birthday to me!

Well, I am almost offically 31!!! I can't believe I have spent my last two birthdays preggers! I had a very nice day, Matthew stayed with Grandma Barb and I went to Lansing to see my friend Sarah and my friend Pam, who just had her second child, a little boy named Jacob. What a peanut!! He is such a sweetie! Then, I came back to Jeff's mom's house for dinner! I didn't think I would have a cake but I ended up with 3!! Sarah, Pam and Jeff all got me one! How nice!! Matthew had a great time with Grandma and Grandpa! He always does! It was nice to get away! So, boring but Blessed!!

Bubbies is having surgery!!

Hello all, I don't think anyone reads this but me, but I like to write it like there is at least one person out there! Tommorrow Matthew is having tubes put in his ears! I know it routine, but its my first experience with letting someone take my child and put him under with drugs and cut him! Ok, a little dramatic but... I know it will help the poor little guy who has suffered from consecutive ear infections for a over six months now! I know God will watch over our little Bubbers! I can't believe he is 11 months old! I am almost 10 weeks pregnant, feeling mostly yucky but not as bad as with Matthew. I was looking up girls names today, I kind of like Kaylin. We will see what militant name giver, aka Jeff thinks about that! What else is new?? My parents are in route on their way back from "wintering" in Florida !It will be nice to have them closer. My mom is coming next weekend for my friend Sarah's baby shower, should be fun. Oh, I can't believe I forgot, we have ants! They started in the kitchen and when I was Swiffering the basement I found them , dead, all over yuck. The ant guy is coming on Thursday, great just what out already tight budget needs, a big bill from Orkin!!! Oh well, it will all work out in the wash! Right???

Ultrasounds, babies, trust

Hello all,
Well, no more horribly sad news, although I am still constantly thinking and praying about my friend's sister. We have another ultrasound on Thursday, they make me so nervous. I feel like the whole day before I set myself up with negative thoughts, like what if there is no heartbeat, what if something is wrong. But the thing is that I do feel a lot more at peace with this pregnancy. Even in the midst of horrible news, like a stillbirth. I trust my faith in Christ and know that even in a horrible circumstance, I would feel His love for me. Although I am sure the heartache of losing a child changes you forever.
Ok, moving on, I can't believe that Matthew is almost 1!! My little baby! He is becoming such a big boy lately, constantly pulling him self up, starting to cruise! His smiles just melts your heart! I love that little boy so much! I find myself thinking how can I possibly love another child as much, what if there isn't enough of me? Then I think that the love will just multiply! I can't wait to meet this little person, who by the way, I am sure is a girl! Seriously, I would be really shocked if it was a boy! Come late May, early June we will know!

No one should ever have to go through this...

Its with a heavy heart that I write tonight. My good friend's sister's baby was stillborn today, due to the cord being wrapped around her neck. I got home from church tonight and Jeff said Liz called and it was an emergency. Apparently the baby had been breach and when she was trying to do things, under doctor supervison to help turn it and the cord just got tangled. My heart just aches for her. I can't imagine the grief, the sadness, the despair. I just pray that she is surrounded by so many prayers and support, in the immediate days and days ahead.

OOPS! I wasn't done before, in fact I had just begun! Well, its Thursday and all is good. Matthew is sleeping, Jeff is on his way home from work and I figured out what was wrong with our internet all by myself! Yipee We have Vonage, which means our phone line is through our internet, cheaper but way more problems than I would like! Today, our phone was working, but not our internet! That doesn't make sense, b/c if the internet goes down, so does the phone, so I was majorily confused but just rebooted it all and it worked!! I am feeling good this week, no spotting and we have another ultrasound next week to make sure everything is still fine, but I trust through GOd that it is! I actually feel like I have truly given it to HIM! Jeff and I have a date night Sat, yipee, a WINGS game and Mongolian Barbeque, our favorite! YUM!
