Happy Birthday!

I saw Bob's post and had to make a quick one myself!

Wish all our babies (and big kids) a very happy birthday! Maleah turned 2 on January 19th, Corbin was born January 24th, and Kaitlyn is 3 today :) It's a busy week for the grandparents...and will be for years and years to come. :)

There's so much I want to share about Maleah. She can drink from a big kid cup, likes to play dress-up and plays with her dollhouse...she's talking so incredibly big and has started to sing her ABC's as well as the theme songs to various shows including Wow Wow Wubbzy. I just love her! She steals my heart everytime I see her, hear her, think about her, look at her....She's unbelievably ours. Such an awesome gift the Lord blessed us with!

So Happy Birthday Babies! :)


Don't Give Up on Me!

I've been working 6 days a week for the month of January....and had Maleah's birthday! Bobby & Nicole's baby should be born sometime today and we have Kaitlyn's birthday too! So I've been so busy. And TIRED. All these hours while pregnant can get a little difficult!

Things are going well though. :)

I'll start posting again soon. Promise! :)


Alex Update...

I went Monday for my 28 week appointment. Enter the third trimester! It has gone so unbelievably FAST! It was my sugar test. Bob couldn't go with me, so I was all my by for the little guy who LOVED LOVED LOVED the sugar drink! He's doing fantastic! His heart rate is 144. He's growing just where he should be (thankfully not too big yet!) and when Dr. Parks went to rub the heart scanner on my belly, he kept kicking it! He is such a funny little guy! :) I'm good too, though my statistics don't need to be shared! :) We (Alex and I) were able to sit in the waiting room and read for an hour while I was supposed to be working. That was great! Another Brandilynn Collins book....and soooooo good!

FYI....for anyone who worries about the drink for the sugar test...don't listen to the overdramatic's actually really good. Just go in there thirsty and you are SET. I love the drink. I ended up crashing around lunch time once the sugar wore I had to, just HAD to, eat a 3Musketeer. No choice really! :)

So we're doing good. I'll be going back more frequently as the time nears. :) So exciting and scary at the same time!

Keep praying for us.
Pray for Bobby and Nicole....there time is approaching very quickly.
Pray for Stacy and Kevin....we have 2 babies coming...and we're hoping soon for news of a third!


In My Daughter's Eyes

I was listening to Ross 106.5 at work (which I usually don't do) and this song came on by Martina McBride. It's a beautiful song which I've heard before but never really listened to the words....

In My Daughter's Eyes

In my daughter's eyes I am a hero
I am strong and wise and I know no fear
But the truth is plain to see
She was sent to rescue me
I see who I wanna be
In my daughter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes everyone is equal
Darkness turns to light and the
world is at peace
This miracle God gave to me gives me
strength when I am weak
I find reason to believe
In my daughter's eyes

And when she wraps her hand
around my finger
Oh it puts a smile in my heart
Everything becomes a little clearer
I realize what life is all about

It's hangin' on when your heart
has had enough
It's giving more when you feel like giving up
I've seen the light
It's in my daugter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes I can see the future
A reflection of who I am and what will be
Though she'll grow and someday leave
Maybe raise a family
When I'm gone I hope you see how happy
she made me
For I'll be there
In my daughter's eyes


I will never get used to.....

....being called "big" in reference to how much space I take up just because I'm pregnant. People feel it's ok to constantly comment on your size just because you're pregnant...and I find that rather rude. If you want to comment on my "cute belly" you go right ahead! :) Just don't tell me how fat I am!

....people I don't know really well touching my belly. I am not a lamp with a genie inside! Close friends and family, touch it! I don't mind. Hopefully you'll feel Alex kick! :) Everyone else....maybe think twice before inviting yourself in for a belly rub. I have serious space issues...and you are violating my space!

You could call this the rantings of a pregnant woman....because I'm ranting and I'm pregnant...but I have spoken to many women who feel the same way. So....respect the pregnancy hormones! :)
