Well, not pregnancy wise, anyway. LOTS going on, just nothing on the pregnancy front. Parker is moving… almost constantly now, but he’s still not to the point where Gene or the kids can feel him on the outside. I’m looking forward to that day, and hope it won’t be much longer.
Yesterday, I had to take Zander in for his yearly well visit. The doctor knows us well (from Lucy’s stay in the hospital), so she knows we have a large family. She asked Zander who lives in our house with him, and he told her, “Mommy, Daddy, Lulu, Ashley, Jace, and Parker.” She asked who Parker was, and Zander beamed with pride and said, “It’s the baby in Mommy’s belly! He lives in our house, he just stays in Mommy’s belly all the time. Just like I did when I was a baby.” I thought it was really sweet of him to think of the baby as already living with us. He’s really looking forward to having another little brother.
In other news, I’ll be getting Lucy’s costume repaired!!! I got an email from the original creator, and she said to send it back to her and she’d fix it, or make a new one if need be. I am SO glad. I’ll have to wait awhile, as she’s in the process of building a house/moving, but knowing that I will get it back and it WILL be fixed, makes me feel so much better.
So, slowly but surely, things are getting better around here. I’m still sad that I can’t get back to Ohio, but I’ve come to accept it as God’s will. And, I’m praying for an answer from Him in another area as well. Just trying to remember that He is faithful and bears our burdens when we can’t.
Hopefully I will have more exciting things to post soon, but as for now, I’m enjoying this being a nice, calm, uneventful pregnancy.
