Up Date on Kids

We finally have a new adoption worker.

She made a visit last week and stayed all of 10 minutes after driving an hour and a half. She has turned everything over to the attorney.

I have spoke to the attorney's office and once we are able to get a piece of paper notarized and back to them, they will send the information to the judge...

And then we just have to wait on a court date!!

So not too much longer and they will be ours and they will be done with case workers and visits and crazy behaviors leading up to these events (or after these events).

They start school in a little over a week, which the boys say they are not ready for, and S. says she is ready for.

Me personally...SO READY!!!

They are driving me crazy. And I keep wandering, how in the world do you plan on home schooling them once you can? I'm praying about that one ! HA!!

I definitely want to home school them, that is not the problem.

The problem lies in the fact of how in the world am I going to do everything that needs to be done, plus have a baby, plus have them underfoot all the time. I make let them go outside every chance they can to play. But honestly they don't know how to "play". Weird I know. But really they will just walk around the yard forever, doing absolutely nothing, with the exception of M.

M on the other hand gets into EVERYTHING! No joke... and it is so frustrating when you go to look for something and it's not in it's rightful place, and "NO ONE" knows how it came up missing or where it could possibly be. Then days later it mysteriously reappears to it's original spot!

Anyways, I know that God will provide me what I need in order to home school the kids! Including patience!!!

Almost 26 Weeks

Almost 26 Weeks

I think this is going by way faster than I imagined it to go...
I would like for it to slow down a little...

I actually went to the doctor again yesterday and everything looked good!

We found out the gender on June 29th and we are have a...


And we finally have a name for our little man!

Israel James

How far along: 25 weeks 5 days

Size of baby: About 13.5 inches long and weighs about 1.5 lbs.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: +3 lbs

Gender: BOY!!
Movement: Yes, and it's even crazier that I can see the baby moving now. (If I could only get a good video of it to send to Derreck!)

Sleep: Mostly good.

Maternity Clothes: I did purchase some and wear the bottoms the most. I can still make some of my skirts work for a few hours before they get too tight feeling.

Symptoms: Lots of growing pains! Still some nausea (BOO!!!). Lots of tenderness on days that I tend to over do physically.

Cravings: Strawberry Milk is delicious!!

What I miss: I am very thankful for this little miracle, but sometimes I just don't feel like this body is mine! Things have changed so much already that it is just crazy! But I don't miss anything, and would gladly do it again!!

Best moment this week: Feeling all these movements, even through the day!! Makes it feel more real to me!

What I am looking forward to: Derreck coming home and being able to see the baby move for himself! I miss that man, and being pregnant is not helping with the emotional aspect of him having to work away from home! Oh and school starts in a little over a week, so I will have a little more free time to start working on some baby things!!
