Well…. Tressa is super excited to be a BIG sister!! We are expecting #4 the Lord willing in March.
So if you know me at all you can probably guess that I don’t feel so well at this point. I have been able to take a couple of medications to help with the pukes and the nausea. Hopefully in a few more weeks the worst will be over. (and I won’t sleep ALL the time!)
I had an ultrasound this week that showed a little baby with a heartbeat of 170. It is still amazing to me what a tiny miracle it is to be soooo tiny and still have this beating heart. We are incredibly thankful for a healthy pregnancy thus far.
We told the kids yesterday that mom was going to have a baby and this first thing Michael says is “TODAY!!??” Thinking we are having this baby right now!! So cute. Subconsciously he must have already known because almost a month ago while I was getting ready for church in the bathroom he came in and rubbed my belly and said it looked like I was growing a baby in there. I just laughed and immediately changed my clothes! (I would have probably been in tears if I wasn’t pregnant :)
Tressa took a while to get used to it and just kept saying No like maybe I would change my mind and just let her stay the baby. At supper time while we were reading she whispers to me “ I want to hold the baby” it just melted my heart! Later at night she does a scooping motion on my tummy and them makes a cradle with her arms and says that is how she is going to hold the baby. I think she is going to be the best little mommy’s helper!
So here is my guilt list for the last couple of weeks:
***Thanks to Tricia and Ellen and Shannon who let my kids wander over by them while we were camping since mom never wanted to get out of bed in the morning! ***Sorry to Ruth who I really want to help do diaper bags for the girls at church but just can’t seem to get in the swing of things. I did manage to get some baby gifts made but that is about all the sewing I have been able to do!
***Also sorry to about the last 5 ladies at church who had babies … I made NO food – totally falling down on the job!
***I also had grand expectations of having people over for coffee and at the pool and for supper and all that fun stuff now that we have a house this summer but all that kinda fell flat too. Oh well, I guess next year will come soon enough.
Now was are going to Wisconsin for the next few days and hopefully I will be able to perk up a little bit although that is why is was necessary to let everyone know about the baby since we are going with John’s family and they would for sure guess anyway!
Well, I think that is all I have to say for now. I will keep you updated on baby’s progress and hopefully get back to more fun projects soon. I already have a few new bath things lined up for a customer in Italy, a custom tool belt that I promised someone a long time ago and have to make a pillow for Matthew for Kindergarten (can’t believe he is going to be in School!!!) I had a cute pattern and letters all picked out and he said he didn’t like it and wanted cars instead so I guess I better just do that:)
