Say What! 5

Say What!

See this cabin? THAT IS MY NEW HOUSE! (That little person in the grass is Ada.) At the driveway there’s a neighbor’s field.  The field is full of goats–maybe 15 of them.  They came running, bleating hello. Pregnant goats, nurslings, and man goats with long beards.  Pure awesome. Ada said, “That goat isn’t right Mama.  He’s got rectangle eyes!” All goats have eyes like that kiddo. Almost every house around has chickens and roosters.  The neighbors over one more field, also...

Things with the house reorganizing are coming along every so slowly doing it mostly by myself. Yesterday I reorganized all the boxes in the POD outside and brought in 95% of the toys.  They’re semi-organized in our old bedroom, the new playroom/office.  I got completely worn out and sore after moving all those boxes.  I’ve been too tired to do any more today! I managed to take the girls outside earlier to check out signs of spring.  We also potted some...

Hi Baby Boy! 0

Hi Baby Boy!

Today was the anatomy ultrasound! I was super nervous.  The last time I saw my midwife I had ketones and glucose in my urine.  I’m very thin, so if I miss eating one meal or snack while pregnant I get ketones. I’ve never had glucose before and that concerned me a little.  The midwives I talked to all promised me that it could happen if I hadn’t eaten enough and then just had carbs and/or something really sweet.  I’d had Coke...

Ultrasound Day! 5

Ultrasound Day!

Look!! (Profile facing downward, spine on the top right with the heart, legs stretching out on the bottom left.) Long, long legs!  Little froggy. Can you see any between the legs bits here?? What about this 3D view?  (That’s not a hole in the head, it’s just a part the computer didn’t pick up.) Look at the little fingers! Hi!  Baby skull face! The sex of the baby was definitely not a mystery! It kept….popping up. He’s headless in this picture....

First day of co-op and a few pictures. 0

First day of co-op and a few pictures.

We had our first day of the Charlotte Mason homeschool co-op yesterday. It went very well!  The only downside was they actually intended for me to be the helper in the 4/5 year old class and not Ada’s 2/3 class.  Ada wouldn’t stay in the 2/3 class without me.  To be fair I had promised her we would stay in the same class together. I tried leaving her in there and she just stood in the same spot and sobbed silently....

The Ultrasound! 9

The Ultrasound!

I had my ultrasound appointment today. The appointment was at 9:45 and I took Ada with me.  I was so nervous! As luck would have it they seemed to forget about me in the waiting room.  Everyone else sitting out there got called, new people came in and sat down and got called 10 minutes later. FINALLY at 11:10 they called my name.  Ada was practically climbing the walls and we were so hungry!  (They don’t allow food and drink in...

7 Days!

My insurance woes continue. They sent us two letters in the mail this week. One listed Tyler, Amy, Rosie, and Ada as covered by insurance from September 17th, 2012 to January 1st, 2013.  (Yay!!) The second letter listed Tyler, Amy, Rosie, and Ada as covered by insurance from January 2013 to January 2014.  (More yay!) Tyler called them to double check that my issues had been resolved since they never gave him the confirmation phone call they’d promised.  The lady on...

Fifteen Days!

They are purchasing plane tickets tomorrow!  That means Host Boy is coming!!!!!!! The only things that could stop him from coming now are matters of chance.  He is randomly adopted at the last minute, he’s too sick to travel, he gets himself into trouble and the director won’t let him come…anything like that.  I’m praying none of that will happen, of course.  (Well I guess if he’s happily adopted at the last minute that might be good for him, but I...

Changes!

Ticker says 5 weeks today.  Fertility Friend says 4 weeks, 6 days. I’m still pregnant.  It’s going by SO SLOW. I hate these first few months.  I think the hard part is feeling physically awful while feeling like the idea of a baby is so disconnected from reality.  There’s no evidence of what will (hopefully) be a squishy, adorable baby. I’m feeling weird–sometimes sick but only in that super empty stomach way, not in the motion sick want to die way....
