We have Internet!

That's not the most important thing on this post though.... For the readers who don't know: Joel and I are having a little baby.... and the gender of this baby is now known... and I'm going to keep you in suspense until the very end of this post! :)

You may have noticed I posted a few posts at a time for awhile because we didn't have internet so I would type them up at home then I would post them when I got to a place that had internet.... rough exsistence I know... but anyway, that shouldn't be a problem anymore... because we have internet :)

Also I know everyone wants to see the bump, but I've gotta get my pictures in order first...

Ok I'll tell you: We're having a little boy!!! His name's gonna be Jason, and he has big feet based on the ultrasound picture! Any way, that's all for now folks.... This pregnant woman needs a snack.... she's hungry :)

Maybe it’s just me….

I don’t know how other pregnant women feel during the various stages of their pregnancy, but even though I can’t see my toes, and I’m “losing my girlish figure” (sorry that makes me laugh inside myself) I don’t care about those things, all I can think about is the little miracle growing inside of me.

A true testament to Joel and I’s love: a baby, that was conceived soon after our marriage…. Unplanned, but loved. Now, since I’ve seen our baby on ultrasound, and we’ve both felt baby kick (myself, periodically during the day, Joel,only once so far) this baby seems more and more real to us… Not that the baby wasn’t real before, it’s just baby now seems to actually become a little lovely person!

Feeling baby kick that first time, was, in short, surprising! Then I felt a whole big wave of love for our little one!! Same with “seeing” baby for the first time on the ultrasound!

As you can see, the minor discomforts, and the weight gain really don’t matter to me at all, because it’s all for a little, wonderful baby I’m bringing into this depressing world.

Anyway, I had to get all these thoughts off of my chest before I could possibly work on any more school work! Ta ta for now dear readers: I have school work to finish!

A Few Thoughts

I wish there was some sort of wisdom I could give everyone, something I could say to make your life’s journey easier. I mean being married and everything, I would have thought that there would be some wisdom gained…. And the only thing I can think of, is when you choose your wedding dress, and get a slip to go under the dress, get it to wear it’s not tight on you at all…. it will be twice as tight on the wedding day.

All I really know for sure is that I’ve learned a lot since the wedding day, although it’s not exactly “wisdom” I’ll share my most random of thoughts with you:

1.) Always write on the outside of the box what you’re packing inside (and if there are books/papers WRAP THEM IN PLASTIC BAGS!)

You’ll never remember what you put where once you get to your destination. And wrap up those books, wouldn’t want to take the chance that they get wet!

2.) Organize things as you go.

This is a given: as you take things out of boxes, unpack from a trip, or even as you fold clothes, wash dishes etc. it makes the job less of a hassle to put things away

3.) When pregnant, keep lifesavers/crackers in purse at all times. Also pack extra prenatal vitamins along.

It helps with the queasiness when hungry. As for the Vitamins: you never know if you won’t be eating at home because your husband might surprise you with a night out ; )

4.) God is always there. Pray all the time, He’s always listening, when you need help or strength: He’s there!

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Isaiah 41:10

That’s all I can really say at the moment.

Moving In

Joel and I moved into our little trailer here on Mountain Pine… Quaint little place, makes you think of little camping trips in a cabin. I love it! Even though, it’s dark paneling on the walls. We aren’t even all the way unpacked yet! The Problem is: not enough places to put things... But here are some pictures of the moving in process:

You can only imagine How tired Joel and I were after cleaning everything… And I washed out all the cabinets and I had to clean so much grease off that stove… And moving that couch in: It couldn’t fit through the door… we had to take the two doors off, and the feet of the couch, and “shimmy” it through the door! Ugh! I don’t even want to move the thing out of here!  Any way: Top most picture: Living room before and after, Then the kitchen, and two sets of bedroom pictures.. All of the pictures are Before and after shots. (This was our first place and I thought you dear readers might like to see it, we’ve moved out of there and into a house :)
