The suffering won’t last forever. It won’t be long before this generous God who has great plans for us in Christ-eternal and glorious plans they are!-will have you put together and on your feet for good. (1 Peter 5:10 MSG)
Wow. Do I need to even write anything else? We all know that suffering happens in this life. Children lose mothers, mothers lose children, husbands and wives divorce, families fight and argue until they don’t speak, people are laid off… Isn’t it great to know that God has big plans for us.
And not just plans for our life, but those too. He has eternal plans for us! He’s already planning for us to be reunited with Him! That makes everything here a little more bearable, does it not?
You can deal with things easier if you know there is an ending. Anything really… Knowing that you only have 3 miles to go in a 5k, makes it easier to keep running. Knowing if you push a little harder, you’ll get a baby 😉 makes it easier to keep pushing. I mean, ultimately, life is tough, but knowing that our God is waiting for us, does seem to brighten the light at the end.
Went to the doctor yesterday. Judah is growing right on track. My bump is as big as it should be. Yes, you read that right. I’m just right for ONE baby. People gotta stop with this twin talk.
Anyway – my next appointment is the 28 week one, meaning sugar test (booooo) and rhogam shot. I’m Rh- so I gotta get the shot. I didn’t get it with Lucy, until after she was born. My docs then.. forgot… Yeah. Forgot. No biggie. She’s fine and I’m fine, but Wesley’s blood type is opposite mine. I’m O neg, he’s B pos. So, we could have issues. Or.. Judah could. So we are doin the shot. Anyway.. after that visit – I’m already to the every two weeks visits!
I cannot believe HOW FAST this pregnancy is going by. And with me expecting him a month early (I almost hope he doesn’t disappoint) I already know I am not going to have enough just me and Lucy time.
Have I told yall lately how stinking CUTE she is? I havent? My word. What is wrong with me. Here.. I’ll prove it. We spent a little time outside this week watching our chicks (who look more like chickens than chicks now… but they are still very young – only 11 weeks!) free range. Lucy grabbed my leftover (FREE) frappe from Burger King and the pictures are priceless.
First the chicks:)
WAIT. WAIT. What do I see?
Is it? Can it?
I think it might be.
Little Miss Blue Eye’s are not as BLUE as normal… hm… Wonder where she gets that from?
My eyes were BLUE – I mean, Lucy’s blue – until I was 2. And lookie here.. Little miss almost two and her eyes aren’t quite as blue as before. They look a little aqua in these pictures.
Might we have a green eyed girl on our hands?
Gosh, I hope so!
I always wanted her eyes to be green like mine. My eyes were almost the exact same color as my mom’s and I always thought it was so neat. So I wanted to give that to Lucy, but.. you know.. that sort of thing is kinda out of my hands.
They definitely don’t look as blue as they normally do! See?
Its slight, but it is there.
And I’ma happy Mamma.
Ok – off to be productive! Hope your weekend is GRAND!
