Up in Smoke

March 4, 2009 I quit on Dec. 4 it will be 9 months smoke free. Just wanted to remind myself of that.

I was also just reminded that this will be my 1st Christmas without my Pookey..7 months gone on Dec. 24th..I still miss her very much!

My parents, after almost 40 years of marriage have decided to get divorced. Very strange, and very surreal not to see them together. But I am at an age, and stage in my life, where I realize what happiness is. And if being apart makes them happier then them being together, then I am all for it.

Little Boy Bean is causing an uproar with my innards...making me potty more, and giving me a hard time when I try to bend over to tie shoes. lol

Thanksgiving break starts Wed. for the kids. A long weekend, and Thanksgiving dinner with friends. I am very grateful to have these friends during a time in our life when we are not able to be closer to our families. Makes me very sad and emotional just thinking about family during these times.

Beautiful Boy

Because we are so we took a drive and had a 3-D ultrasound done. Because baby is still quite small, skinny and just an overall scrawny little thing, we could not get a good 3-D pic. But we did get some awesome regular ultrasound pictures, and we were able to see that we are indeed, having another little boy! What an amazing sight.

Little Fingers, Little Toes

On Nov. 9th we had our "official" ultrasound. But unfortunately, Mr. or Miss Thing in there would not cooperate and show us their privates. So no luck yet finding out what we are having. The tech also did not give us a picture. We already have 3, so I am not complaining. That is more then most people get throughout their pregnancies.

We also have finally felt the baby move (last week sometime) is an amazing thing when you finally are able to feel that life moving around inside you. It makes it just a bit more real. The kids were so excited to be able to feel the baby. They are demanding to feel my belly every chance they get. Girly and Crazy are still insisting on a girl. Baby Boy has now changed his mind and wants a brother.

My next appt. is next week on the 17th. I am keeping my fingers crossed she will do an ultrasound and maybe be able to tell us the sex. I am so impatient. I will not be able to wait till the birth to find out. lol

Knocking on Heaven's Door

On Oct. 31, 2009 Chris' dad..Jack..passed away unexpectedly. He retired from the Navy after 31 years, had 4 beautiful children, and 7 beautiful grandchildren with 1 on the way. He will be sorely missed. May he rest in peace.
