This has been a wonderful journey so far with our little one inside me. The miracle from God above.

We had our U/S this morning. We had a good appointment. The tech wasn't my favorite....We found out that our little one is a GIRL today. We are in total shock! I thought for sure that this little one was a boy. So now we are doing the name game now. We got a video of our little one also...She is measuring just right. She weighs about 11 oz..which is right on schedule.
Here is one of her sucking her thumb.
here is one where you can see the umbilical cord!!!
This is a good profile with leg and arm too!
Here is a foot.
And the girly parts!!!!
I keep thinking of all the things we need to get now, and am overwhelmed at it. Especialy since we are in the middle of redoing a 100 year old farm house. We would like to be able to move in sometime in August. But at the rate that I am moving now (very slow) I don't see how I am going to be much help to my DH.
Sat. May 26th
Today we spent the whole day working at the farm house. We got the grass cut and the old 2 room addition removed from the structure. It is amazing how much we got done today. However, we are both exhausted. I need my sleep now.
We have an early morning tomorrow. Sunday School and then Church!
Sunday May 27th
DH taught his last SS class on the "Jesus Sensitive Church" That was a very good class and book if anyone would like to read it. Then we had guest speaker for church service today. Lavern and Edith Tripp. Their singing was awesome. He even gave us his testimony. That was very moving.
After church we went out to dinner with our friends and had a good time...Then came home and took a nap. CJ was exhausted! I was too...It felt good to get a 2 hour nap in. Then we went out to the house and worked some more.
We talked a little bit about names for our little girl. Nothing set in stone but here are a few.
There are just so many names out there and to me meanings and how pretty they are for a girl is important. We have a few family names we like but most of them are so old fashioned.
Monday May 28th
Today we got up about 9 am. I cooked french toast and bacon. Yumm Yumm! Connor ate pretty good. We got all cleaned up and left about noon to head for the house to work again. Today we worked on removing the plaster from the upstairs of the house. Big messy job.. I had to keep a mask on my face so that I would not breath in the dust from it. If I took it off DH would tell me that I didn't need to be breathing that air. I did notice that I had to keep stoping to rest more. In the last month I have noticed a shortness of breath that I did not get this early on in any of my pregnancies before.
Now all I can keep thinking about is all the stuff we need to get for our little girl. I really don't want to spend the money on things. However, we need everything except for crib, few receiving blankets, changing table and carseat (but need a new pink cover for it).
Tues. May 29th.
I am finishing up my 21st week of pregnancy!!! Wohooo!!! I am enjoying every moment of this pregnancy because we are planning that this is our last one. If I have to have another c-section then I definately am done. Feeling her kick is so awesome. She moves off and on all day. She is laying with her head to my upper right side and her feet are angled toward my left hip. She kicks with both feet at the same time so I really get some jabbs already. My next OB appt. will be the 6th (next week)
Wed May 30th
Today has been an ok day. It is very hot here and no a/c in the windows yet.
Growing up so fast! 9 months old today
~~~ Sunday June 22, 2008 ~~~
Today Naomi is 9 months old. She is getting so big. I can hardly believe that she is that old already. This time last year we were still gutting the farm house and getting ready to add on the 4 room additon. Today we are moved in by 3 weeks and still working on this farm.
I had Naomi into the Doctor's yesterday. She has been running a fever for 5 days now and it has ranged from 102.2 to 104.3.. No other symptoms just a fever and some crankyness. He thinks she has hand foot and mouth illness. I think it is something else. Time will tell though. I take her back in tomorrow for her check up.
She is a whopping 15 lbs. that is with clothes and diaper on! She cut her 1st tooth on June 10th, it is the bottom right for her. The 2nd one is comming in as well just not thru the skin just yet.
She is crawling all over the place. Sometimes she does the comando scoot, other times she raises one leg up to pull herself along. It is so funny to watch her. She is pulling up on everything. I have to watch her to make sure she doesn't pull up on her walker or she will definately come tumbling down when it moves away from her.
She eats very well. She loves all her foods and now I am giving her table foods as well. She actually eats better than CJ!
Time for me to go do so weeding in the flower beds.
~~~Monday June 23rd ~~~
I took Naomi in for her 9 month check up today
she is 27 inches long
14 lbs. 10 oz (she has lost weight)
Head circum 44 cm
She is still sick and blisters are still on her throat. The Dr. is a little bit concerned about her weight again. She lost 7 oz since Saturday. I told them that she has been eating pretty good considering. She is drinking more than eating food food.
She said that she is doing well with her milestones and developement. Other than she is on the tiny side. She did mention Pediasure.... I just thought here we go again.. Down the Pediasure road that will do nothing for my child... Maddie was put on it cause she was tiny and it did nothing for her!!! No weight gain at all!
Connor is sick now! He has a 102.6 fever and is feeling pretty rough. Not eating much just drinking. So far no one else has it or is sick.
