    5 months

    Well Patrick is creeping up on being a half a year old...where did the time go? If I blink, I'm afraid when I open my eyes I'll be planning his first birthday!

    He is rolling from tummy to back in the crib but we've yet to see it for ourselves. He is sooo close to rolling from back to front also. I keep watching him try with the video camera ready. Maybe by next week he'll be successful!

    4 Months Old

    The sign pretty much says all. I can't believe how fast Patrick is growing up! Time has flown by, and its all sort of a blur! He's definitely hitting the oral stage now at 4 months if he hadn't before. He can just about put his whole fist in his mouth these days...and anything else he can somewhat purposefully put in there.

    He's starting to look more like my baby pictures than he did previously. Speaking of me, my parents told me the other day that I started walking at 7 months...I can't quite imagine yet how life would be if Patrick followed in my footsteps (pun intended).

    Yes, my boy is finally napping in his crib! Whew! It only took 3 weeks of torture for the both of us, but I can say that today was a successful 4 nap day! Sleep training has been the hardest thing I've done as a parent. Hopefully, when he's 30 he'll still appreciate the fact that I taught him to sleep in a bed. ;)

    And after the diaper malfunction today, I do believe he is ready for size 2 diapers!

    1st Pregnany Post!

    So I've been pregnant for 35 weeks now, and realized its been forever since I updated this blog! Ok, maybe not forever but at least since before I was pregnant. I figure now's the time to start up again so all the out of town friends and family can stay updated on our new bundle of joy!

    My pregnancy has been a little dramatic to be honest. Problems toward the end of my first trimester led to an ultrasound that diagnosed me with a complete placenta previa. I continued to work until I was about 20 weeks and started having contractions at work. Way too early for those things to be happening as regularly as they were! I was diagnosed with an irritable uterus - a fancy way of saying I have a lot of annoying non-productive (thank God!) contractions for some reason, possibly caused by the previa. At this point I was put on bedrest for 5 weeks to keep the contractions at bay so that I wouldn't have any previa complications. I had none, so my doctor finally freed me of my couch chains and I was able to do "light activities" up until 33 weeks. I then had my first previa episode that landed me in the hospital for 2 days. So now I'm back on bedrest for the remainder of my pregnancy. Despite all the crazy things that have happened with my pregnancy, I've felt great, haven't had any swelling (yet) or any major physical ailments! And baby is doing great in there! I have a feeling we'll have our hands full - he never stops moving!

    At my doctor's appointment Wednesday, we scheduled a c-section for Patrick Ryan to be born on September 23 (granted he doesn't decide to make a grand appearance before then)! His official due date was October 13, but because of the previa, my doctor wants to deliver him early to avoid any more complications.

    Well, that's our story in short. 13 more days and we will officially be parents!

    Slouch Boot Revolution: My silly thoughts.

    Ok, so I'm seeing Uggs and slouch boots everywhere! At first I hated them especially the Uggs when they first came out like 2 years ago. "Ugg-ly!" is all I could say. Slouch boots reminded me too waaay too much of the 80's. Then.... they began to grow on me. ALOT!!!! Uggs and all. And I'll admit I caved and bought an awesome pair of black leather slouch boots today (Did I mention they are awesome?!). And I'm really hoping I'm cool enough to pull them off...not so sure yet.

    I got home and started to think about WHY & WHEN this shoe suddenly started to make a comeback...

    Then, it hit me:

    Beginning of the slouch boot revolution.

    Who woulda thought?!
    Thanks Napoleon!

    God doesn't view me based on

    my actions

    my ministry

    my knowledge

    my goodness

    my righteousness

    my sin

    my flesh

    my failures

    my trying

    my zeal

    my success


    His promise

    Christ's life

    Christ's death

    Christ's righteousness

    Christ's obedience

    for His glory

    because He is faithful to His name.
