I’ve been home sick today with laryngitis and a nasty cough (I’m finally feeling relief from “morning” sickness now that we’re out of 1st trimester – so of course I catch a virus from the kids at school!)… I’m laying in bed and all of a sudden hear all of these kids – look out the back window, and there’s Jeff in our backyard, surrounded by probably half of the kids who live in our neighborhood – who came over to play with him and Tucker. I think he knew 2 of these kids before today, but does that surprise anyone?
He cracks me up – but he’s so good with them. These babies are getting a great one!
I’m not sure if everyone knows about the latest disease that has infiltrated this great country of ours… My wife has unfortunately suffered this for several years. In fact, ever since I’ve known her this has been a concern. However, this problem has been magnified by her pregnancy and she cannot seem to find any relief. I’m sending this out to anyone who may know of a cure for this evil, terrible syndrome… maybe you’ve heard of it:
RESTLESS LEG SYNDROME
Do you lie awake at night with leg jitters that just won’t quit? Do your legs possess the energy of a 8-yr old on a pixie stick high? Do you have to perform calf-raises at midnight just to calm down your nervous twitches? You too may be the victim of this ruthless disease… let’s all join together and find a REAL cure for it. Support groups are forming in your areas…
In all seriousness, Lauren has been having quite a bit of trouble sleeping lately and we’re hoping that now that we’re through the 1st trimester that maybe this will begin to be less of an issue. Today we get to go and make her first maternity clothes purchases… thank goodness for Friends and Family events at Banana Republic/Gap/Old Navy!
Until next time… -J
oh so funny, doctor. We probably would’ve fainted right then and there…
but for real – we had our 12/13 week appt. today and got to hear the heartbeats for the first time! It was kind of a circus trying to find both of them (it takes 2 nurses, 2 dopplers, and a lot of playing around!) but they did and everything’s looking good – both heartbeats were somewhere around 16o bpm which is great for this stage. It’s so amazing to listen to their heartbeats – what a mighty God we serve!
…so in Jenn’s words – it’s time to get to decorating that nursery for 2! We should find out the sexes in 6 weeks, too – we can’t WAIT for that. (Originally we wanted to not find out and be surprised, but with the BIG twins surprise – Lauren’s gonna need to plan!)
On March 4, 2006 I made the single best decision of my life and married this fine man:
But seriously, he is amazing and I’m so thankful for him today! I can’t wait to see how the Lord deepens my love for him even more in year 4 with this new adventure we’re beginning! Thanks for all you do for me and for being such a godly, sweet, caring, cute, and hilarious husband and best friend, J…I love you. -L
