4 weeks and counting

Only 4 more weeks to go! Of course I think that this is going to be the longest week ever since my little girl is hanging with Grandma Wood. I'm so glad that she gets to go spend time with Grandma and Grandpa Wood, but I'm gonna miss her sooo much. Mye I hope you have a blast! And thanks to Grandma Wood for helping clean the house before you left. :)

Spring...Please come soon

So you would think with all this down time I'd be able to keep up on my blog. LOL That's a good one. :D I'm trying. Honest I am. Today was probably one of the warmer days we've had for awhile and Myelle wanted to go outside. Erick was home today so he took her out for a bit. Not even 5 minutes before her nose was bright red and she was cold.
They also tried to go to the park and play on the slide, but there is construction on the playground. Myelle was quite a trooper about not getting to slide though and hopefully it will make for more fun in the months to come.

Had a doctor appointment today. Not as good as last week's. My BP is up again so they're running all the preeclampsia tests again. And my fluid levels have risen again. Now up over 23. The NST is showing that the baby is doing well though. It's comforting that the doctor's are taking the measures to monitor both me and the baby closely to make sure we're okay. We just keep praying that both of us will be able to come out on top through this pregnancy.

I'm getting a little tired of being on bedrest. :D But that's to be expected. I sure wish Spring would hurry up and get here so I can sit out on the lawn while Myelle plays. We both could use some sunshine. :D

Spring...if you're listening.....Please come soon!

What exactly do you mean by bedrest?

Very good question. Especially since I'm not on strict bedrest and can get up and walk around some, sit up, shower, travel to the doctor, etc. Mostly resting in between. LOL So if I'm on bedrest because of my blood long as I keep my BP down I'll be okay to do a few things, right? ;) LOL I wish.

Tomorrow is Sunday and I have a dilemma. Do I go to church? or do I stay home since I'm on bedrest. Here is what I decided (last week actually since I had this dilemma then too :D ):

When it comes to things like going to church or attending the sealing this week when Wesley will be sealed to my parents the Lord will watch over us and bless both me and the baby that we will be okay during these times. I also feel comforted that the Lord knows I cannot sit through all 3 hours of church and that attending Sacrament meeting is the best I can do right now.


No matter how may times we tell Myelle that this is a Hippo, she insists on calling it "Ammole." I guess that's as close to animal as she gets right now. :D She walks around the house talking to it and pushing it in her doll stroller. "Come on Ammole." "Look Ammole!"

Of course this isn't even her hippo. Uncle Brett was given this by an investigator in El Salvador. Myelle found it at his house one day when he was babysitting her. Sometimes she'll forget about it completely and I'll set it away to go back to Uncle Brett. Each time Myelle manages to find it and cling to it. LOL Thanks Uncle Brett for letting us keep your hippo for now. We promise one day you will get it back.

This Girl

This girl makes my heart happy. She can make me laugh most of the time. She only drives me crazy some of the time. And she definitely makes life interesting. What can I say she's an energetic 2 year old. I can't believe how fast she's growing up.
I love you Myelle!

Hooray for March!!

So this is my first post of March.(was going to post yesterday, but my connection was being slow) I can't believe it's March! (this is me doing the happy dance) March is the beginning of so many of my favorite things. Spring and warm weather are on their way. It was 51 degrees outside today! And we had a thunderstorm!! The rain made everything smell so clean and refreshed. I opened all my windows and let our apartment air out.

March also marks the beginning of high school track season. Yay!! I love watching track and field. I won't be coaching this year for obvious reasons (LOL) but I plan on making it to as many track meets as possible after I have the baby. That's why God had someone invent front packs and oversized coats to keep the little one snuggli warm. :) It's Keeley's senior year and I don't want to miss anything.

There's nothing like March and some warm weather to lift your spirits and help you make it through the last few weeks of winter.

Happy March Everyone!!
