baby girl...safe inside!

some people might have the wrong information or no information at all about this precious little girl inside of me. so i will attempt to fill you in. she is 27 weeks today and lively as ever, letting me know she is hear for mommy whenever i need her. three weeks ago today i had my routine 24 week checkup. since its in my history that i have contractions early they always ask how contractions are doing and how far apart they are. well i had some days where they were pretty regular so they decided to do a test that would show if i would go into labor the following two weeks. the test came back negative. negative is a for sure sign of no labor. positive is a sign you "might" go into labor. which brings us to one week ago today. i had to have another test done (same test different weeks). this test showed positive. once i am a positive i am always at risk to go into labor. so what does this mean for me? i cant do much! the biggest thing right now is that i cant take care of my son and i am having a hard time with it. i just have to sit relax and wait. the thing im thankful for is that i still get to see my family at Christmas parties. all of this to say that our God is great and i need to depend on him for every need that i might have (relaxing is not easy when you have to do it). all of your prayers have been helping and i hope you will continue to pray for this precious little gift to arrive only in Gods timing.

Too much Egg Nog for Elijah

Little man tried taking a nap at Grandma and Grandpa this saturday. Apparently this went on for about 15 minutes before Grandma laid him down.

sledding!

yup the biggest adventure this winter so far...and who forgets the camera, yup mama! we decided that christmas presents can be used before christmas. so we went and bought a sled for elijah, took him sledding and he didn't want to be done. even though he was a frozen blue little boy! to say the least he had a perma-grin the entire time. until next time the sled is safely tucked under the tree! (...and next time there will be pictures)
