On The Mend

Well, I think that we are finally getting over this cold that has had the whole family down for the count.  Carter seems to be feeling better from his ear infection. After two antibiotics both of which cost 200 dollars that didn't work he is now getting anitibiotic shots. I had to take him for his second shot today and we didn't have to wait at all so that was nice. We always have to wait so long to the see the doc.  They did let me take his shot for tomorrow so, I can give it to him and not have to go back up there.  Poor little guy, I have been feeling so bad for him.  He just hasn't been himself.   I have had to work the last two nights without much sleep, so I have been pretty tired. I did get to sleep for about six hours today, so that was much needed, and I am off work tonight.  Casey is feeling better today as well, and I can finally breathe. So, needless to say, I think the worst is over and I am so relieved.  These last few weeks have been really hard on me. I've been ready to just quit work, but I think I'm going to stick it out a few more months, so I can guy some good stuff for the new baby on the way. lol....especially if it is a girl.  I haven't had any morning sickness, so maybe I won't have any with this pregnancy and that would be very nice.  Last night I had a little trouble holding my stomach in, lol, so I guess things are starting to stretch out in there.  Little peanut is starting to grow.  

hmmmm...what do I want for dinner? I think we are going to go out and eat for dinner because today was pay day.  I'm pretty excited.  Casey and Carter are taking a nap, so I am enjoying some quiet time.  I hope you all are staying warm and cozy out of this winter weather.

If the equate brand says positive it must be true!

Well, we have some news in our little home. We are expecting a baby in September.  We were not planning on getting pregnant for another year or so but the Lord had different plans.  We just happened to have a perfectly timed accident and believe me it only takes one. :-) The Lord opens and closes the womb and I am thankful that the Lord even allows me to get pregnant because so many people are not able to.  I'm pretty much in shock about it. Casey is really really excited but it's taking me a little while to get used to it.  I just really hate being pregnant. I feel so ugly and fat and I can't sleep and it just isn't fun to me and I have really bad heartburn the whole way, but maybe this time will be different.  I know that the Lord will give me strength to get through it and I pray the Lord will give me another healthy child.  I will be sure to take lots of pictures this time. I didn't do very well with that last time, but I was also in school. 

I think that I'm going to quit work in a few months because I really don't want to be working with the two children and I wanted to be able to have plenty of good time with Carter before the new baby comes, So that is what has been going on around here. :-)

Veggie Tales and Swimming

Well, for the 1 millionth time we are watching veggietales in the morning. I think I have formed a bad habit. Carter wakes up in the morning and we play a little while then he goes and sits in from of the tv and then if I don't come and put his DVD in then he begins to open the entertainment center and pull out DVDs. It is pretty funny to watch, actually.  My favorite one is the Gideon one. It tells a story about George Mueller and it is really good. There are a lot of Bible verses in it and there is also lots of dance music which is our favorite.  We love to get low!! lol. 

I get to go swimming today and then have lunch with a friend. I'm so excited.  I have an awesome mother-in-law and she is going to keep Carter for me, so I'm going to get a nice break and some exercise after a tough week with Carter being sick.  

I have been having a tough time spiritually and I haven't been getting into the word like I should but yesterday I got to have an awesome devotional time. I felt so renewed and invigorated. I read Hebrews 12 and it was such an encouragement to lay aside every weight that entangles us and to run the race that is set before us looking to Christ the author and finisher of our faith.  I was so convicted about how I let the cares and wants of the world dictate how I live instead of the scriptures.  It was an awesome time.  I would encourage anyone that is feeling like they are being carried along by the world to read this awesome chapter for encouragement.  Hopefully I will be able to have another good bible time today. :-)

That's about all I have for now. Continue to pray for Harper.

I'm new at this

I'm new to the whole blogging thing, but I have recently started viewing people's blogs, and I think that that is a really neat concept. My life is not that exciting but I would love to be able to share it with all that care to read. :-)  Right now I am caring for my little boy, Carter, who has a cold, and ear infection, and is cutting three molars, so it has been a rough week as you other mothers can imagine.  I  just wish that he would let me cuddle him. He has never been much of a cuddler, though, so I hope one of my future children likes to cuddle. lol. He is taking a nap right now, but I expect him to wake at any moment.

This is Carter. Isn't he cute? We think he is, but we may be a little bit prejudiced. He loves playing outside as I'm sure you can tell. 

I love to take pictures. My sweet husband bought me a nikon D90 for Christmas, so I am trying to practice a lot with that.  Well, I hear the little man now, so I better go tend to him.
