A Time to Trust

Well, trying to keep my promise to blog a bit more frequently. This week has been very busy and many things have been filling our time. As you'll be able to see from reading below, Monday was a big day in our week.

On Monday, Phil was laid off at work. We are trusting the Lord that He will provide for our needs and direct our steps to where He wants us to be. Although we are hoping to stay in our current area, we are willing to move to a different area is God opens the doors. It's definitely a time where all we can do is trust and do our best to be diligent to look for jobs, send in resumes and just be open to what God has for us. Bible study this week was on I Timothy 6. Read it sometime, it's a good chapter and was very applicable to the job situation. It talks about being content in all circumstances and our material possessions.

Monday was also the beginning of the puking stage of pregnancy. Although many friends have tried to encourage me that I may not be as sick with this pregnancy as I was with Taeya's, I have counted on being sick and would be pleasantly surprised if I wasn't. Well, I'm sick...it's horrible but at least I know it'll have an end...even if it's 9 months from now. So, be forewarned, if you visit my blog in the near future (or for the next few months) be prepared for me to talk about what is consuming my life right now, puke!

The last thing that happened on Monday was my mom ending up in the hospital in CA with a serious infection and reaction to a new medicine. Thankfully, she's doing much better and was able to go home on Saturday although she's still in a lot of pain. Please keep her in your prayers as it will be awhile until she recovers fully.

On some brighter news, I'll share something about Taeya, who is still doing great and is a joyful little girl! She doesn't watch much TV/Videos but lately, I've been letting her watch some Chitty Chitty Bang Bang in the evenings. As I type this blog, she was dancing all over the room to "The Old Bamboo" song. It's so precious to watch. I have to get it on video. I don't have any recent pictures because I haven't downloaded my pics lately so I attached a pic of Taeya from February.

Big Plans for November

This past weekend, Phil was away on a church retreat. When he returned, I made him a nice dinner of Moroccan Spiced Chicken and had a little present prepared for him. I gave him a box with five candy bars inside. They were: a Skor bar, Sugar Daddy, Sugar Babies, a Baby Ruth and Milk Duds. He immediately looked at me and said, "You're pregnant aren't you?!" I then replied with a "Yep." We celebrated our exciting news together and we're both looking forward to baby #2!

It's funny, because the past two months I felt like I was pregnant but ended up not being pregnant. This month, I don't feel pregnant but I am. We are very excited that Taeya will have a sibling regardless of whether it's a boy or a girl. We'll almost definitely find out the gender of the baby when we're able to. Although I haven't seen a doctor yet, based on pregnancy calculators on the computer, this baby will be due around November 8th. Since I had a C-section with Taeya, I'll definitely have to have another C-Section as there are no doctor's or hospitals that do V-BACs around here. I'm fine with that because my C-Section last time was very uncomplicated.

We'll be praying for a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby in the end. I am only five weeks along but want to share our exciting news with our friends and family so that they can offer their support no matter what happens.

I will try to pick up my blogging a bit more than I have been lately. I've been busy with Taeya, tutoring and running my house. In the evenings, Phil has had the computer more frequently than he used to and I just haven't made the time to blog on a regular basis. I will TRY to do a better job of it and hopefully, some of my readers will come back and leave comments once again. :)
