Here is baby boy's profile! Things I am learning about pregnancy this time. Lydia is absolutely in love with her unborn brother. She gives him hugs, kisses my belly and says I love you poppy. She asks daily what he is up to today. She often will just bring him up with out any prompting from us. She enjoyed seeing his ultrasound done today. Seth still isn't completely understanding about the new baby. But he does know there is a baby in my belly. He will say hi to him sometimes but most of the time I don't think he really thinks about it. During my ultrasound today baby boy was pretty stubborn and the tech pushed really hard on my stomach and it was painful. I am able to still do jazzercise. I don't crave food a lot but when I do i try to give in. My favorite thing to eat right now is still chips and salsa. I am already having braxton/hick which is interesting. But overall I feel great and I am still excited to be pregnant again.
We have already experienced some summer like weather, but now it is back to spring time and a small bit chillier which I enjoy because it was a little too hot for this pregnant mommy. We got to do a lot of summer type activities like play in a big bucket of water and we planted half of our vegetable garden already and some bulbs that we hope will grow. We basically lived outside for 2 weeks straight. I love spring and summer because I love to be outside but what I love even more is that my kiddos like to be outside too. Just a few pictures of our days so far.
This blog may seem like a pity party but just bear with me because I know that in the End Christ is sufficient for me. Lately, I have just realized how I am a complainer. I am tired of sin and so I complain about that. I am tired of trials and so I complain about that. I am tired of having a overly dramatized life and so I complain about that. Then after sharing a life event that happened to me someone said to me, wow your life is just full of drama so I once again I am tired of that. So as I lay in bed last night I kept thinking about ways were I didn't have to tell people whats going on in my life to spare them the over dramatized life I lead. Then I kept remembering 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 But He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then I am content with weaknesses insults, hardships, persecutions and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong." I realized that the only way we grow and become more dependent on Christ is when we walk through weakness and calamities and hardships and so on. So what if I am tired i need to just keep keeping on. But then the question aroused in my mind was how can I do this without sharing every little scary detail of my life, like a car accident, uncomfortable pregnancy pressure and so on? How can I keep a joyful attitude when talking with people? How can i fashion my life by pure rejoicing? I haven't figured this all out and I will probably spend a life time trying to not focus on myself and my hardships, but for now I am just going to rest in my weaknesses, knowing this is just what God has for me in time of my life. So when people ask me whats knew I may just not much but all is well.
