Update….Facebook Style

Facebook Style Update……

Becky Is…..

excited that she is heading to Louisville to see friends and then on to Tenn to see your Grandpa who survived open heart surgery by the Grace of God!

realizing that my baby is almost 3 months old….what happened?  But is thankful he is sleeping through the night and is so precious.

can’t believe a year ago I was preg. with a special baby, one that I won’t see until Glory.

Loves teaching my children at home and is amazed at how much they are learning!!!!  God is so good all the time.

Just found out Dave may be moved to another sort!  The one we want a year ago…..woo hoo I am so excited!  Putting 4 kids to bed every night by myself makes me tired.

Is starting Jillian Michael’s 30 day shred a week from Monday….pray for me I am going to need it!

Is a little upset that the ped. Omp. missed Isaac’s eye problem in Louisville!  If we find out he has lost his vision in that eye or that the connections can’t be made because it is too late…..we will be getting a lawyer!  I had him at the doctor’s every year because his ped. kept thinking something was wrong.  The specialist kept saying he was fine.  We move and get a new dr. and they find it right away!!! 

Is hearing that Huggies will be stopping their 3 dollars off and 1.50 off diaper coupons  at the end of the year.  Looks like we will be stocking up ( we use them at night and on Wed. and Sundays for church).

Is so excited that Owen is back on the potty train!  HE is going all day and telling us!  Praise God, we were unsure what to do, we have never had a child regress before.  🙂

Loved that I made 25 meals this month and put them in the freezer!  Dinner time has been going great and I have more time to spend with the kids in the afternoon.

Is thinking I should say Good night to everyone!  Good night 🙂

Update….long time needed

1 06 2009

Well, we are really needing a family update.  Let me start with….we are still finishing up homeschooling for this year, so we have been a little busy. 

I will start with Isaac.  He is doing awesome!  Reading has clicked with him and he is reading a lot of short sentences and stories etc.  His world is wide open now and he really likes that.  He is a typical 5 year old…trying to figure out social circles and friends.  He is still adjusting to our move and making friends is coming slowly.  This is not a bad thing….sometimes the slow moving friendships are the ones that last.  He is in Tee-Ball and loves it!  He has quite an arm on him and is getting much better at batting.  His hand and eye coordination has improved so much from last season.  We are really proud of him.

Grace is 4 years old today!  I can’t believe how fast she has grown.  She is becoming such a sweet child.  6 months ago we didn’t know if what we were doing as parents was working with her.  She cried a lot and was VERY sassy.  But by God’s grace she is really coming around to be such a wonderful little girl.  She loves babies and art.  She wants to do her hair, pick out her clothes and of course her shoes!  She really wants to do dance class so we will be getting her in a class in the fall.  What a great little girl….Happy Birthday Gracelyn, mommy and daddy love you so much!  We thank God that He choose to give you life and what a miracle you are.

Owen is growing up!  He is almost 23 months old and is one of the sweetest little boys when he isn’t trying to assert his own will.  He is in a twin bed now and will start potty training tomorrow morning.  It will be a long 3 days, so please pray for us, but God has always been faithful with this area for us and it has gone quick.  I pray it goes that way with him as well.  He LOVES baseball and cars.  He is such a funny little guy.  Now that he has had his new tubes in his years he is talking so much!  He is putting together words and sentences and dropping most of his signing.  He was doing about 60 signs, but now only uses them when needed!!!  That is awesome!  He is very happy to kiss my growing belly and sing to the baby when asked to.

Baby Champ is growing as well.  We are almost 27 weeks and moving along pretty well.  I am growing and finally really feeling this baby move.  Our placenta is in the front this time making the movements of the baby harder to feel.  But the baby is growing and is much stronger now so we are feeling it!  The kids love to talk to Champ and sing as well.  This baby will be well loved when it is welcomed into our home.

Here I am at almost 24 weeks.

Help needed PLEASE!!!!!

5 05 2009

Okay, we have a baby coming in about 3-3.5 months, now this is our 4th child in 5 years and we will be starting our second year of homeschooling at the same time.

So, I need some help from my blog buddies!  Please post your favorite recipes that can be frozen.  They can be frozen before or after being cooked.  I would like to have about 2 months worth of meals stocked up in my freezer before the baby comes.  My family LOVES veggies, meats, soups….anything!  We are not picky, but I will be nursing so please keep that in mind.  No spicy foods etc.

 Thank you so much.





Happy Birthday

Wow!  5 years ago to the day…..Wednesday Feb. 11, 2004 I was getting ready for bed and I knew that the baby was going to be coming soon.  Dave went off to work the midnight shift at UPS and I went to try to get some sleep.  I awoke a few hours later on Feb. 12 around 3 am and called my husband home.  We were 45 mins. from the hospital and it was starting to snow.  He came right home and took a quick shower and got me in the car.  We arrived at the hospital a little after 4 :30 am.  They decided to keep me…and off to a room I went.

We called our family in the morning to tell them we wre checked in and they started to make their way to the hospital.  Hours laters……I mean hours…..at about 7:30 pm I decided that I couldn’t handle it anymore and got an epidural.  By the time they got there and did it our baby was coming.  I started to push a little after 8:40 pm and a sunny side up little boy was born at 8:46 pm.  The room was shouting….Dave was calling to the waiting area….”It’s a BOY”.  We were so thrilled with this wonderful life God had given to us.  Then only 10 hours later my sister had a baby boy next door to us.  Neither one of us knew what we were having..

Now that boy is going to be 5.  What happened to those past years?  He is reading pretty well, rides a 2 wheeler bike, can skateboard and is one of the most compassionate loving children I know.  He wants to serve the Lord and live for God.  We couldn’t be more proud of him.

My sister and I delivered our boys 10 hours apart.  We were next door to eachother, it was a fun experience.
