Just one more thing.....

On January 10, 2012  we found out that I am pregnant again!!  The Lord has a sense of humor and impeccable timing after the topic of my January 4th  post.  I really had given up hope of being pregnant again.  After losing three pregnancies, one tends to think (or maybe even hope) that God will just stop putting you through all that pain.  Even though you still really want another baby and I of course really, really did want another baby.  I knew from the moment I saw the positive test that this pregnancy would not be easy and so far that has been true.  I was 9 weeks yesterday and I have already been to the doctor six times and have had three ultrasounds.  During my first week of pregnancy I was put on blood thinners and aspirin to help prevent the late miscarriages that I have had with my last two pregnancies.  At the first ultrasound the doctor saw a hemorrhage in my uterus. She said I would have to stop the shots to allow the hemorrhage time to heal.  Of course that made me nervous,but praise the Lord, the hemorrhage healed quickly (more quickly than the dr expected) and I was able to start my shots again this past Monday.  For those of you who read this blog I would ask that you would please pray for me and the baby during this pregnancy.  I pray that the Lord keeps this baby safe and healthy.  We can only take this a week at a time and praise the Lord for every moment that we are given with precious child.  My prayer continues to be for the Lord's will to be done and that He will see fit for us to give birth to a healthy, full-term baby that we can raise in the fear of the Lord!!  Thank you all for your prayers!!

There's been a lot going on

I haven't been in the blogging mood lately, but I really need to keep track of all that has been going on around here so I don't forget!!  Starting in January, Isaiah started playing upward basketball and Emma is cheering for his team.  They are both having a blast!!

The biggest news for the month of January is that I have a new nephew!!  He is super cute and we all love to hold him and visit him as often as we can!!  I just love to hold babies!!

At the end of January both of my big kids were baptized at church!!  This was a big decision for them both.  Ryan and I were so proud of their public declaration of faith.  What an awesome day to share with family and friends!!

And finally, yesterday we decorated Valentine cookies at my sister-in-laws house.  The kids always enjoy this tradition!!

That face says it all!!  Miss Olivia is a stinker!!  Well that's what we've been up to for the last month or so!!
