And it starts

As of yesterday afternoon/evening, the hormones involved with being pregnant finally caught up to me.  I've been tired for the last few weeks, but now I'm also sick.  Not really sick... just a constant feeling of not feeling well.  I'm having a hard time with anything liquid -- even water doesn't sit too well on my tummy.  I'm trying lots of remedies -- taking ginger, adding lemon to my water, watering down juice.

In other news, a bird did a fly-by of the house yesterday.  The bathroom window was open, and the top of my toilet tank and seat were splattered.  Lovely.  When I first saw it I thought maybe Tim had an episode with the sprayer we use on dirty diapers.  I think I would have been more okay with that than the truth.  *shudder*  At least (as Tim so kindly pointed out) no one was sitting on the toilet at the time!! *BIG shudder*

Off I go to try to keep myself hydrated.



And here are the results...

details... and a short story

Candace asked for details, so here they are :)  I am about 6 weeks along. So far, I'm not feeling sick, so that's great! Every morning, and every night I pray that God will spare me from the nausea and vomiting... Any prayers any of you want to offer up are okay with me too! :)

We are all very excited about the new baby. Thrilled really. Oh, and Angie? Yes, we are trying to keep up with the Theis', but Mitch says he might just have to do something about that. LOL And Steph says it's twins! Guess we'll just have to wait and see what God has in store for all of us ;)

As for the short story... I'm still breastfeeding Shiloh.  She is often a little acrobat, and today was "standing" on my lap in an inverted "V".  I yelled at the boys to grab me a Kleenex because I thought her nose was about ready to drip on my arm.  Turns out it was just milk... LOL  Apparently when you drink *upside-down* milk will come out of your nose.  HA!

I'm off to take a personality test...  Have a great weekend!


Get it?

Here is the new shirt I made for Shiloh...  

If you need an explanation, think a little harder.  

If you still need an explanation, well, I'll think about helping you out.  LOL

Psalm 127:3-5  
"Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, 
the fruit of the womb a reward. 
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. 
Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!"
