"House Prison"

So, I have this problem that has gotten worse with every pregnancy.  Because of my low blood pressure...every time I get up I feel out of breath.  So, that pretty much means I'm on self imposed bed rest!  It also means I can't take all my kids out at the same time because I cannot keep up with my 3 youngest children without feeling like I'm going to pass out!  So, unfortunately we haven't been to story time at the library in a few weeks, I can't get Kessiah to her basketball practice (Jenessa's is on Friday's so Ryan can take her to that), and pretty much any other fun activities have come to a halt!  I'm not quite sure how we are going to handle the first part of softball season.  Kessiah says we are in "house prison"

I'm glad my oldest two have school to do every gives them something to do!  Although, since Kessiah is such an early riser she was done with her school by 10:00 a.m. this morning!  Thankfully, they both enjoy reading and have been doing a lot of that...I'm glad I've been buying cheap books at the library book sales for the past couple of years!

Another Big Boy!

I had a doctor appointment last Tuesday and was measuring about 4 weeks I had an ultrsound today to check things out.   Yep, another big boy.  He is measuring about 33-34 weeks (I'm 30 weeks tomorrow!)  Mason came on his own 12 days early and weighed 9 pounds....I have a feeling I will be induced early with this one.  I'll have to talk with my doctor to see how early.

New Car!

Yes, with this new addition due to arrive in 11 weeks....we needed a new vehicle since our van was only a 7-seater!  We spent a day looking at vehicles about a month ago and narrowed it down to a model that we liked.  We went out again yesterday because I thought that a dealership nearby had one that I wanted...but it turned out to not be quite we ended up with a different vehicle that I had originally intended on.  We are now the proud owners of a 2008 Suburban.  We actually looked at it a month ago...but I wasn't sure I wanted a seemed too big!  But yesterday it seemed it is now in our driveway!  We now have a vehicle with enough seats for everyone!  Yippee!

Hold Them Close

We have some friends that we go to church with who have a daughter just a couple months older than Sienna who was just diagnosed with cancer last week.  It strikes close to home when it is someone who is the same age as one of our children, someone who has been in our home, someone I have served with in church.  It has brought some tears to my eyes and made me hold my children (especially Sienna) just a little bit closer and a little bit longer.

"Did she go to get the baby out?"

I'm glad that Logan is old enough to get it...the fact that there is a baby in this bump of mine!  I had a doctor's appointment last week...I left while Logan was having a nap and Ryan came home to watch the kids.  Logan woke up while I was gone and Ryan explained that I was at the doctor.  Logan said, " Did she go to get the baby out?"   I only wish!  I am 28 weeks...but really wishing it was 38!
