8 months

I can't believe our sweet Ruby Jane will be here in 8 weeks!
We did A LOT of traveling in the last couple of months.
Dad had heart surgery which he is recovering great from. Praise God!
We also went to Durango Colorado for Christmas and had an amazing time :)
This weekend will be our last trip down to Kerrville for a baby shower that my
Aunt Peggy and Mom are throwing for us.
I will be glad to not be traveling after this weekend it definitely is wearing on me.
So there is a little update.

Me at 8 months pregnantWell so far this pregnancy has been pretty easy on me. Except for the occasional migraine (which I found out is probably related to me being anemic) I have no complaints :)
She is head down and in position and growing at just the right rate.
My midwife is expecting this birth to be shorter than Adom's was, which I couldn't be happier about! Adom's birth was only 7 hours so we're looking forward to a quick delivery!
I have received chiropractic care this entire pregnancy and I cannot tell you what a tremendous blessing that has been.
We are so ready to meet this little girl I think I might bust!

*Funny Story*
This morning Adom and I were snuggling in bed when he got up and he always asks if Ruby Jane is kicking (he loves to feel her kick). Then he looked at me very seriously and asked how she was going to come out... I didn't know what to say so I just laughed. Then he asked, "is she going to tear your shirt momma?!"
Wow I just left it at that and hugged him for being so sweet!

25 weeks

Here's me at 6 months pregnant with sweet Ruby Jane :)

I can't believe we're already at 6 months! This pregnancy is flying by and I haven't bought one single thing for the nursery or cute baby girl stuff. I know what's wrong with me?!

So at this point...

I've noticed that it's getting a little harder to get up and down from the floor when I'm playing with Adom.

I'm still able to wear my old jeans, praise God!

I'm feeling better at this point in the pregnancy than I have the entire time.
My energy is back to somewhat normal and I feel great!

She is extremely active, even more so than Adom was and wakes me
up during the night already.

I've gained 8-9 lbs so far which is awesome!

I'm having to drink protein shakes because I'm not getting enough
protein in my diet... I don't mind they're yummy :)

So that's about it we're going to be travelling A LOT this next month with the holidays, so please keep us in your prayers while we're on the road :)

Happy Holidays!

First Belly pics & a surprise!

Here are the first pictures we've taken of me during this pregnancy so far :)
I am 21 weeks just a little over 5 months in these.

I have definitely noticed I am carrying her lower than I did with Adom at this point.
She is really active and already is waking me up during the night kicking me!

I started out a lot healthier with this pregnancy than I did with Adom's and I've only gained around 4 lbs at this point.
Plus chasing a 3 year old keeps me active :)

AND surprise, she already has a name! Greg decided on her name all by himself, and we couldn't be happier with it :)

Her name will be

Ruby Jane

The names together mean "A precious jewel that believes in a gracious God"

Adom gets so excited when he talks about his baby sister Ruby Jane :)

I would like to call her Ruby Jane instead of just Ruby... but we'll see when she's here with us.

Blessings & Happy Fall!

Adom is sooo excited to be getting a baby sister. He has been saying all along that he wanted a baby sister and now he's getting one!

We have name ideas but not sure on anything just yet :)

Belly pics coming soon... I hope

15 weeks

We had our 15 week appointment with the midwife on Thursday :) We love our midwife Christy sooo much! I can't tell you what a Godsend she is to us.

So the last appointment it was a little too soon to hear the baby's heartbeat but THIS time is came through loud and clear as soon as that doppler thingy hit my tummy!

The coolest part?! While she was poking and prodding on my stomach to get a really clear heartbeat I felt the baby move twice! It was the first time I had felt the baby move, it was such a special moment!

Adom and Greg were there with me and Adom was very curious as to what that noise was. When we told him it was the baby in Mommy's tummy he asked, "when's baby gonna come out?"
I think he's understanding a little bit more and more about the new baby :) He's going to be such a sweet big brother.

We also found out that we get to find out if this baby is a boy or a girl on October 20th! It seems like this pregnancy is going by much faster than Adom's did. I guess having a 3 year old to keep me busy helps.

I'm having to pull the old rubber band trick with my pants right now because maternity clothes are way too big still. But I am showing a lot sooner than I did with Adom!

Maybe... I'll get Greg to snap a picture of me soon... Maybe.

Whats been going on...

Pictures of what we've been doing for the last few months :)

Our good friends Dustin and Jessica had their first baby boy! Hudson Daniel and he is oh so cute!
We went to Adom's cousin Landry's 4th birthday party and had lots of fun and sugar!
Adom got to play with Aunt Peggy's "Mr. Rabbit" which we just found out is actually "Missy Rabbit" haha :)
Adom started at a Mother's Day Out school last week and loves it (and so does momma)!

10 Weeks!

So ya I'm pregnant... I still have a hard time believing it.

I can't believe Adom is going to be a BIG brother (he's my baby!)

I can't believe I'm going to be a mother to TWO children!

And I can't believe how blessed I am to have such a wonderful husband who provides for his family and loves us so much!

Not to mention families that are so amazing, friends (new and old) that are so loving, and a heavenly Father who loves us unconditionally.

Does it get any better than this?!

I've been trying to count my blessings a lot lately, because with pregnancy comes pregnancy hormones... you know the poor me, feel sorry for me, I can't do this, feelings one minute then utter delight the next minute! Ugh, sanity where are you?

So I'm 10 weeks! Haven't been too sick with this one, I have my nauceous moments and have been extremely tired but other than that it's been pretty easy. I'm definitely thinking this pregnancy will go by a lot faster than Adom's did. A lot is going on with us right now...

Chasing a 3 year old keeps me busy enough, then recently I was asked by our Children's Minister at our church here in Fort Worth if I would consider taking over as the Nursery Coordinator. A good friend of mine who was the nursery coordinator is moving to Georgia with her family. So I accepted the offer, it was a total God thing! Plus I'm still doing my transcription work from home in the afternoons or evenings.

So with all this I'm trying to get Adom into a Mother's Day Out program probably one maybe two days a week.

Anyways, theres a little update into our lives at the moment.

Greg and I both are thinking this baby is going to be a girl, Adom thinks so too haha! We keep asking him if mommy has a baby girl or a baby boy in her tummy and he always says , " a baby grill" :)

No names yet, Greg will be naming this baby :)

I'll try to keep you posted on how we're all doing, we are using a midwife with this baby and our first appointment will be the end of this month when we get to hear the heartbeat :)
