Our Savior's love, shines like the sun with perfect light. As from above, it breaks through clouds of strife.

Signs of Life

It has been a rough 3 months.  I am at week 19 1/2 and am starting to have moments where I feel like myself. 


1st:  Came out of the constant fog of naseau long enough to notice the dirty/disorganized state of my house.

2nd:  Walked past the cheetos at the grocery store and thought "Eww"- even though there have been several days in the past 3 months that snack foods like those were all I could force myself to eat.

3rd:  Made dinner for my family AND ate an adult size portion.


Thanks to everyone who has offered help and support.  We feel so blessed to be able to have baby #3 on the way!  C is building beds in her room so "the newborn baby can sleep with me".  "Mom, you can't take care of two babies, so you just take care of SJ and I'll take care of the newborn baby."  Its really fun to have a child old enough to understand what is coming and get so excited!

P.S.  Drumroll, please: it is a...               

GIRL! 

We celebrated with pink lemondade.
