This post is just a bunch of rambling....I'm just writing it so one day I can read it and remember what we were up to...
On Tuesday before Thanksgiving I had a doctor's appointment. The kids and my brother-in-law were all with us since we were headed to Abilene after the appointment. The doctor let them all come in and see the sonogram! The kids loved it. Malachi kept asking the technician if Miles was growing. The whole time Miles had his feet crossed and in front of his face! She tried to do 4D, but he had too much in front of his face. He weighed 1 pound 12 ounces and everything looked great. PTL! I discussed everything that I had talked about with my cardiologist and bottom line is that we won't know what to expect until I have my echo on Decemeber 30th. If you have time, would you say a prayer about the echo?? Thanks ;)
We spent Thanksgiving with Tony's family. We had a great time. We were able to celebrate Isaak's birthday while we were in Abilene and we got to spend some time with Mamaw. She is such a special lady and I know that these holidays are super hard without Papaw. Friday morning we drove home and were able to spend time with my mom's side of the family. Lots of love and laughs, and maybe the best part was watching the Mavs beat the Spurs with my super Spurs fan aunt Ronda. On Saturday, my mom and I were able to go shopping. I was a little worried about how long I would be able to walk around before my feet swelled to the size of watermelons, but I felt great. I love spending a day with just my mom. I was able to get almost all of "Santa" shopping done for the kids!! Yea!
We let the kids do their trees for their rooms last night. Jordenne's is lots of girly colors with beads and sparkly ornaments. Isaak and Chi's is a sports tree. Did you expect anything else? They had a great time making their trees. Excuse the crazy hair and the "worn" look...what can I say, it was after a long day of school, baseball, and basketball practice. Speaking of, just this week alone, Isaak had basketball practice Monday, TOT's and baseball practice Tuesday, baseball practice and basketball Wednesday night, and baseball practice last night...How did my parents' do this with 3 children that played sports. We only have a couple of years until all three of ours are so involved. I have a feeling will not know what "relaxing" means for 18 more years!
I started this post a couple of weeks ago and I'm just now finishing it!!!
Now, I am 3 1/2 days away from Christmas break. I have been feeling pretty good for the most part. My legs and back ache and I have terrible indigestion, but it could be worse, right?!? I think we even have a break from basketball for a couple of weeks so that will be nice to have nothing to do. I did get Christmas shopping for my kids finished. Tony and I did not go overboard this year...I'm so proud! Usually at the last minute I go buy junk. Not this year!
Last Sunday at church a special, special child was baptized. Caleb is 14 and just a jewel. He has Down Syndrome, but knows what it is to love the Lord. It was amazing to watch how excited he was. We should all be like that everyday! During church Sunday, when we were participating in communion, Malachi asked me if the bread was a chip. I told him no, it was bread that represented Jesus' body because he died for us and that is how we remember Him. He said, "That's Jesus' body? And you like that?!?" His facial expression was priceless. I pray that one day he likes it, too!
Tomorrow, I will be 27 weeks along! I cannot believe how fast this pregnancy has flown. You oughta see me out there coaching basketball with this big ole belly! My belly is measuring 2 weeks ahead so you can imagine the comments I get on a daily basis. The most common one is, "Oh my, you'll never make it to March!" Thanks, people, thanks. :)
