an update

It has been a full past week since my last post. I have been meaning to sit down and post a bunch of photos and fun stuff, plus I have been "tagged" by my friend Megan, so have some recipes I need to post.... but time has been short! God has been so faithful to uphold me in the midst of trying to get a lot done!

Between fighting allergies, an allergy medicine that exhausts me, and getting the house ready to transition Tyler to his big boy room, I have not had tons of time to spend on the computer! The house is shaping up, however; and I love some of the changes we have been making. The process has a been a little messy, but so worth it! We have moved bookshelves, re-organized storage, painting trim, begun painting the new room with some fun colors! Moving the computer to the kitchen is next, as we just picked up an armoire for it last night! We found it on Craigslist.org for so cheap, and it totally changes the front of the house! It really is so fun to see things shaping up the way I had hoped.

Even as Jordan and I have been talking about finances, the Lord has been providing things we need from unexpected places, for little to nothing of what the cost we were expecting... the computer armoire, bunk beds, a dresser... all for so much less than we had been thinking we were going to have to spend. The Lord has been teaching me to trust him not only for today's provisions, but for future provisions as well. He already has all we need in his abundant storehouses, waiting the RIGHT time to give them to us.... all we have to do is TRUST and OBEY! He is so good to us.

I went to the Dr. today for my monthly check-up. Had the big glucose blood draw... it went great. In and out. So now, we are just waiting on the results, an praying that I do not have to go through the big test like last time. Weighing in a bit heavier this month. My nurse joked with me, and said,"So you have finally decided to put on some weight!" Yeah, a whopping 7 lbs! I knew the appointment would come when I gained a bunch quickly! Better lay off the Oreos and Double Cheeseburgers! All in all, I have only gained 13 lbs so far, which is a whopping difference to the 30 I had gained at this point with Tyler! Next appointment is in 3 weeks. My Dr. (who I think is also the Dr. for all my friends!!!) wants to start the every 2 week ones at 30 weeks... so I get a little break till that begins... but then we are on the last legs of this pregnancy journey! Third trimester here we are!

I will post house update pictures, belly growth picture, recipes, and more in the coming days....
