The past months have been some of the busiest of my life.
I would like to say I could place my finger on just one reason that our days have been so full. Honestly, there have been so many things happening, it’s hard to remember everything!
I guess, first, I should thank some of you ladies for reaching out with an email, or a card when I had my oral surgery.
It is most definitely NOT something I ever want to have done awake again. There is just something about hearing a doctor crack your tooth that is unsettling.
In the end, I really felt none of it, so for that, I am VERY much blessed. I was sore for about a week but it passed as soon as my stitches fell out. I’m glad to be feeling better and I’m more thankful for your prayer!
Our pregnancy seems to be going well.
I am not nearly as nauseated as I was with Miss Darby. What a blessing that has been!
So far, everything seems to be picture perfect. (As a side note, when I went to the doctor for the first time after my surgery, the nurse noted that my blood pressure had significantly dropped. She asked if I had started medicine for high blood pressure. It took me a minute to realize it was probably due to having had my teeth taken out, and not being in so much pain after several months. I guess I didn’t realize your teeth could change your blood pressure so much!)
We did get to see our newest little one a couple of weeks back:
I noticed immediately that the face shape seems so similar to Darby’s. I can’t wait to see this new little baby! ….and did I mention, we found out it’s a BOY!!!
Our family is thrilled!! I really would have thought at least the girls would be wanting another girl. That would have given us six girls and six boys, but my little girls have been telling me they were hoping the baby was a boy! God is good!!
Paul and I are praying over his name. I think we have one chosen, but we’re taking our time to make sure it’s right.
Well, that’s all for my update right now. I’ll really try to post more in the coming days. I feel behind! 🙂
Sending you all wishes for a wonderful Friday–
With my love,
