When I was pregnant with Avery, I would ask Caleb almost everyday, "do I look pregnant?"
I would wait expectantly for my tummy to swell.
Now thirteen weeks on my fourth pregnancy in four years, I really do look pregnant. Actually, I have looked pregnant for years now.
Bathed, fed and ready for bed, Avery and McClaine played patiently in the playroom as I gave Audrey her bottle, rocked her and put her to bed. As I was feeding her a bottle, I heard some noises in the kitchen.
When I came into the playroom to put the other two to bed, they were sitting on the couch with a bag of Animal Crackers and a bottle of yellow mustard. Putting mustard on the crackers, their hands, their pjs and more.
Conversation at dinner the other night:
McClaine (as he drops his corn on the cob on the floor): Oh no
Avery: Oh brother, he dropped his corn.
McClaine (trying to climb out of his chair to get his corn): STUCK!!! Oh no, I stuck
Avery: You need some help, brother?
McClaine: Yes sir
Avery: It's "yes ma'am"
(Avery helps McClaine get down and back into his chair)
McClaine: Taaaaaaaaaaain too.
Avery: Your welcome
Avery asked for animal crackers with mustard for an after school snack yesterday.
I gave it to her.
I am so thankful to be back in an organized Bible Study. I am learning much about contentment and satisfaction. In this season of my life I feel like I am an Israelite wandering around the wilderness, grumbling and wishing for the "promised land." I feel like the Lord is doing a big work on my heart in the areas of thanksgiving, contentment, satisfaction and finding purpose and vision in the place He has me now.
Keeping up with the laundry and dishes for a family of five is challenging. Especially when my hot water heater has been broken for 5 days.
Picking up dog poop is horrible.
This makes it worth it.
Will you please pray for my ITP? It is a platelet condition that I had when I was pregnant with Audrey, and it is back. Please pray that the Lord would stabilize and even raise my platelet count. My count should be between 150,000-400,000 and it is currently around 113,000.
Here's the new babe
My awesome husband just installed a new hot water heater.
