Little Update

Again, I know that it has been a long time since the last post. But that is what I get for living in Arizona and being pregnant in the summer. I am not doing very well with the heat and where our computer is located is the hottest place in the house. Therefore, I don't get on but to check email.

As for happenings. Zane was excepted into The Montessori House Preschool, so he will be going to preschool this year two days a week. I have mixed emotions about that because I did want to home school, but as we tried to do learning activities and I tried to get him to tell me stuff, he just refused. However, when I am not around, he does great. So, I guess I will be the supplement and support for someone else. He is also in swim lessons again, only for two sessions this year. He finished his first session last week and his teacher wrote "Excellent little swimmer. Loves the water, but can be a bit stubborn at times." Like that is something I did not know. Exactly why he is going to school. Him and Daddy also got season passes to SunSplash, a local water park here. Zane wants to go ALL the time and apparently has no fear.

Zane and Daddy are also on their way to California as we speak. They will be there for the Fourth of July Weekend for our church's conference, Together 2010. I wish I were there to spend time with my boys and friends. But Baby has changed so much this summer. Like, I don't get to go down water slides, travel, and have to stay in the oven for the entire summer. However, this is giving me the opportunity to really focus on some cleaning and organizing that I have been wanting to do but don't have the time because of a little man who requires lots of attention.

As for the pregnancy.....Well, we had our 18 week ultrasound and everything was beautiful. Baby's organs all look great and are functioning properly. Heartbeat was nice and strong and the doctors are please with how baby looks. For those who are wondering, we do not find out the sex until the birthday! I was having blood pressure issues, a little high, and some protein in my urine, +1, but at the Kidney Doctor appointment last week there were no proteins and my blood pressure was fine. All my labs for them came back normal, for a pregnant woman, which is really good too.

I am feeling Baby lots. I have a feeling that Daddy and Zane will not because of where the placenta is. All the movement seems to be towards the back and down towards my bladder (go figure) but I am feeling Baby.

Hope that everyone have a safe and wonderful Fourth of July! I am so thankful to be in a country where I can say what I want, wear what I want, believe what I want and have the amazing freedoms that so many in this World only dream about. Thank you to our our service men and women and their families, past, present, and future, for all you do to protect our freedoms. You are so important to us and we love you!

Congratulations on the anticipation of another little bundle to love. Sorry to hear that you have to deal with heat during this time, I remember how uncomfortable that could be.

Glad Zane gets to go to Montessori! I think he will thrive. Cant wait to hear more about it.

My sister called me in tears on her daughter's first day of preschool saying, "The teachers basically said my daughter was a terror! I wanted to die! Give me some encouragement, because I know you've been there." I told her to tell the teachers, "Why do you think i"m sending her to school? She's drives me crazy, too." :) We laughed to keep from crying...her daughter is a handful.
