Long Day

What a day it has been already! Gage is trying to set a record of how many liquids he can dump on the carpet--first it was an entire cup of milk, then it was my orange juice that he grabbed off the desk, and last but not least he ran away in the middle of a diaper change and peed on a toy and the carpet!! He was quite perplexed by the last incident. :) Alas, nap-time is just around the corner!! Oh and Reese thought he would add to everything by dumping a whole bunch of straight pins on the floor too. Thank-you Lord for my little mess-makers.
Yesterday was a lazy day spent reading our new books that the boys got for Christmas this past weekend and playing with toys. So today is catch up day and I am feeling slightly sluggish. I finally called the doctor today to ask about my glucose test and the nurse said everything came back normal--Praise the Lord!! Sunday marked the beginning of my third trimester! I have 13 weeks left, maybe less. My goal is to make to 38 weeks. I am starting to feel a little panicked now thinking about everything that needs to be done yet. I just keep telling myself not to think about it until after Christmas is over. God has been very faithful to us and I know that everything will get done and happen in His perfect timing. Blessings and Merry Christmas to all!!

Waiting. . .

So I am 26 and a few days pregnant! I had to repeat my glucose test on Tuesday to see if I have gestational diabetes or not and I am still waiting on the results from that. Believe me that was not a fun experience--not being able to eat for 12 hours and then drinking 100 g of pure fruit punch flavored sugar, having my blood drawn 4 times and waiting for 3 more hours to eat. That was an experience I hope to never have to repeat. Kim went with me so that helped a lot and then I had an ultrasound after. The babies are looking good, they are measuring right on track. Baby A is actually measuring about a week ahead of Baby B, but they said that is fine. Baby B was kicking Baby A in the butt while we were watching, it was very cute. Much to my sister's dismay, the gender of the little ones still remains a mystery!! I can't believe I have three months left--it is coming very fast, I still have so much to do!

I had a first on Tuesday (besides the glucose test), Kim and I went to Applebee's for lunch, where the hostess kindly seated us at a booth. The problem being, she didn't bother to look and see how "fat" I currently am and that I couldn't even fit in sideways let alone turn to eat my food! We sat at the table across from the booth and the waiter was kind enough to say that I looked beautiful and told me it was only a temporary problem.:) What a wonderful day it was!:)

First Post

Wow, this is a whole new world for me and I don't really know where to begin. I'm still trying to figure out how things work so if it looks a little funny just bear with me. :)

I took the boys shopping with me today to buy Christmas gifts for our Bender Christmas--what a time. I prayed before we left that the boys would be good and that I would find everything I needed without going over our budget and praise the Lord, he answered both of those prayers!! Reese struck up a conversation with a cashier about his dolphin and she was quite impressed with him--one of those precious moments that made me smile. :)

Left are some pictures of my ornery little boys. Reese is 3 1/2 and Gage is 18 months.
