Charlee Lyn

Please welcome our newest little girl!! We had our ultrasound today and it was plain as day, as soon as the tech had her positioned right, that she is a SHE!! :) Joe, the girls and I are all very excited to have another girl. Believe me, SHE'LL be learning how to hunt & fish and be daddy's buddy! LOL

The technician did a lot of measuring of her and from all indications, she is right on target! We even got to see her drinking with the sucking motion. It was so neat. She was very active too. Her heartbeat was 146 and the tech said she weighs approximately 8 oz. After the ultrasound, I had my doctor appt and all is well there too. All the Downs Syndrome testing I had done came back negative. My weight is still not too bad. She told me what she'd like to see gained in a month's time and I think I can handle that. :) I measured right on target & she said the babys heartbeat was good! So, my next appt is August 11 - 4 wks from today. By the way, today I am 19 weeks, 3 days! December 5th is my due date.

So, there is the latest & greatest update!

Welcome Knox Leon & Vivienne Marcheline!

Congratulations to Brad & Angelina! No matter how many people dog these two, I think they are great together and have done amazing things for this world - the U.S. and other countries! How many women do you know that would travel to less than desirable parts of this world at 6 1/2 or 7 months pregnant to do their work?? I think she's an awesome roll model. It took her a while to find her nitch, but when she did....She's done it right! My congratulations to the entire Jolie-Pitt family!

Trevor - Rest In Peace

We got word last night that a friend of ours, Kim, lost her son last night to hepatosplenic T-cell lymphoma. He was 22. Please pray for her and her family. It has been a rough 6 months for them.

Rest In Peace Trevor.

Wow, July 1st already. Where does the time go?? Today I am 17 wks, 4 days pregnant! In less than 2 weeks we find out if we are having a girl or a boy (as long as the baby cooperates!). We can't wait. About a week ago I was at WM and was needing to waste some time, so I walked over to the baby section. There was the cutest onesie in green. I showed Joe and he said, why don't you get it. I hesitated and then said, a couple weeks, we'll find out what we are having and then we can shop. So, for now...I have to keep walking past all the baby stuff and just let it be til the 14th!

Today is my sister and brother in law's 13th wedding anniversary. Happy Anniversary to you two!

I went to the dentist yesterday for a cleaning. The previous cleaning - 6 months ago - I was 5 wks pregnant with the baby Joe and I lost. This time, I was 17 wks, 3 days. It was odd being there and having to say I lost my baby but I'm pregnant again, so you still can't take x-rays! lol But that morning, I got to thinking. Had the first pregnancy lasted, I would be about 6-7 wks away from the due date. I was due around August 18th. We would have been that close to having a baby in our arms. But it'll happen when it is supposed to and obviously, the good Lord gave us a second chance.

Well, I'm trying to think if there is anything else I'd like to share right now...but I'm drawing a blank. Must mean it's time to head upstairs to bed, to read.

Til next time...
