I have some more good news.... Hubby starts training for the new job on Monday!!!!! That's $14 an hour with full benefits-401(k), medical insurance, eye and dental. I'm gonna get insurance again!! YAY!! I plan on doing something special for him this weekend like take him out to eat or buy him something perdy.

I can tell the baby is growing. He is no longer below my belly button. I can feel kicks and bumps just right above my belly button now. He's a very active little boy. I like to play with him already. Whenever he gets in his moods where he just wants to move around, I'll put my hand or just a finger on my belly and push a little.... and he will kick away at my hand.

Lilly finally got so spend some time with her best friend from pre-school. They are in the same Kindergarten school, but not the same class and they only see each other at lunch time, but they can't sit together. When I dropped her off at the before school care, he was there and you should have seen her face light up. As soon as we got in the doors she went straight over to him and they gave each other hugs like they hadn't seen each other in years. I'd think they would see each other on the playground, but maybe the classes go out at different times. He hasn't been at the Y all summer and today was his first day back. It was nice to see them back attached at the hip. She's been talking about him since June.

I really wish I could send videos from my phone to this computer. I have some great videos that I would love to share, but the only way this phone lets me share them is through bluetooth.

My ankles are so swollen I can no longer see my ankle bones. My feet hurt all the time. :-(
I did have a problem with my feet swelling up last time, but it wasn't until I was about 7 or 8 months pregnant. I'm just 4 1/2 months now and I can't see my ankle bones. I even saw a new stretch mark last night! I freaked out. Lilly did horrible things to my stomach with stretch marks and I even used Cocoa Butter (sp?) about 3 times a day from the time I found out to the day she was born. Of course I didn't really show until I was 6 or 7 months along. One day it looked like I wasn't pregnant at all, but when I woke up the next day I was 3 sizes bigger with a tummy full of stretch marks.

So I guess all around, everything is good. Its been a really good week, or even couple of weeks. It seems like as soon as I hit my second trimester, I've been happier. Yeah, I still get mad and upset, but it doesn't last nearly as long at it use to. I'm hoping this new mood will last me forever.


  1. Hey Bekah,

    Great update and glad to hear things are going so well. Don't worry about the ankles. Seeing them is overrated. I don't think I've looked at mine in years! :)

    Stay strong and stay awesome,
