After 5 months of trying to get pregnant, we are FINALLY expecting!!! We are all so excited, however, it hasn't really hit me yet. I thought I was coming down with the stomach virus that Lee & Carson had last week, but I am happy to announce it was just morning sickness. The baby is due sometime at the end of August or first of September. I just wanted to share my excitement with my fellow bloggers! I hope everyone had a great Christmas. I will keep in touch, as I go on this adventure again.
Each day I am reminded how blessed I am. I have faith in God, I have a wonderful husband (that is also a wonderful dad), I have a precious and loving son, I have a great family, I have a home, a job...I could go on and on and on.
Lee and I have been trying to conceive another child for about 4 months now and each month that I am not pregnant, I get all upset. This month, I was about a week and a half late and I was starting to get excited and this morning Aunt Flow came to visit. I started to cry and Lee consoled me again for the 3rd month in a row. He reminded me that I am already so blessed with a son and that I should be thankful that we can conceive. I meet families all the time that adopted because they were unable to conceive. I was talking with a mother yesterday that her husband and her tried for 15 years! I thought to myself, how hard it would be to know you are unable to bear your own child. So, I am also thankful that Lee and I can conceive...eventually.
God is so good. So, I encourage you to live each day with a thankful heart!
Last week, we enjoyed a vacation in St. Pete, FL. It was so beautiful! We had a great time. We went canoeing, on a pirate ship, and so much more. Carson enjoyed playing in the ocean so much more than last year. He said he wanted to live there. I told him Lee & I did too. Check out some of our pictures!
While we were enjoying our evening at my parents house, Jonathan was balancing on a basketball and Carson wanted to try it. I told him that he could. So he stood on the ball and almost immediately fell & popped his elbow. Lee, my mom & Jonathan heard it pop. We all ran over to him and he was screaming. I knew he was in major pain. We took him to the ER and waited over 1 hour. FINALLY, he went back to have a x-ray and the dr. said it doesn't look broke. So, they put him in a sling and sent us on our way.
This morning we wake up and his elbow is so swollen and hot. He is still saying that it hurts. We have to keep the sling on until tomorrow and if he is still complaining with it then, we have to take him to an orthopedic dr.
It all started in April of 1998, when Lee and I started dating. We were high school sweethearts. We got married in 2001 in Gatlinburg, TN. We had a very small, lovely wedding in an old chapel. We had our first child, Carson, on September 4, 2003. Wow, did our life change. You never know how deep your love for someone can be, until you have a child. Now that Carson will be 5 this year, we are thinking it is probably time to start trying for one more.
I am an Operations Director at the BEST Preschool, Primrose School of Gainesville. I have been there over 6 years. Lee works at Crown Financial Ministries. He has been there over 8 years. Carson will be starting Private Pre-Kindergarten this year. He is so excited! Me, however...I just want him to stay little:(
