is just one of those days when no matter what I do, I get a complete meltdown from Thomas. I am frazzled.


Ultrasound ---EDITED TO ADD

I have not been happy with the ultrasound pictures I have gotten of Grayson, but oh well.
I was checked again today, to make sure that the placenta had moved up, and it has, and I got to spy on baby for just a few minutes. He blinked while we were watching him - so very awesome!

Here is the one and only pic they took today. It is of his head/face. You can see his eyes, nose and his big squishy lips -- I had to giggle. I hope that he is just making pouty faces LOL.
extra picture added to help you SEE him.... click on the pictures --- it makes them bigger to see


It's ME!

I forgot to put this on the blog. It was taken about 3 weeks ago - so at about 25 weeks.
I wore this dress to Church, and suddenly everyone realized - "hey, she's pregnant". We are usually a tiny bit late for church, and consequently, we have to sit up on bench second from the front - that's the "Owen" bench. So we walked past everyone, and I could just FEEL all the looks, and almost hear all the whispers. I got A Lot of questions that day - "when are you due?" "is Thomas going to have a brother or sister?" "how are you feeling?". I was a bit amused - finally people knew I was pregnant, and not just getting fatter.


Count your blessings

I got really sick on Sunday night/Monday morning. I am all better today. It was weird. But I think that sometimes we may just need a reminder once in a while that we need to be grateful for our blessings.
Yesterday it took all my will power and strength just to get up and take care of Thomas. THANK YOU SHELLY for coming over to help me!!! I couldn't have done it without you.
Today, I kept looking in the mirror and thinking, "WOW, it is so great to be healthy again".

What are you grateful for today?


A Sunday Funny

Our nursery at church has a tiny "peek hole" in the door, so parents can look in ans see how their kids are behaving, without the kids seeing them.

Well, I always like to peek in to see how Thomas is behaving during the lesson, and listen to hear what he is learning about, so we can talk with him about it afterward.

He isn't doing so well at sitting in his chair during the lesson (there were other kids out of their chairs, so that doesn't help him behave either).

So after church today, we had him sitting up to the table with us for lunch in his highchair (made into a "lowchair") - and I asked him about what he learned in Nursery today. He couldn't tell me, and I said something along the lines of he wasn't sitting in his chair at church, that is why he couldn't hear the lesson.
Thomas responded with "those chairs don't have buckles"

so apprently since he can't be stapped down, he doesn't have to stay seated :) LOL
