A nice, quiet walk

That's what we thought we were doing. We took Tonks so she could burn off some energy. Tonks is not very good on a leash. She want to be as far ahead of us as she can be and can't walk in a straight line. We were trying to keep her closer to us. She sounded like she was dying! She was strangling her herself. Matt was worried, I told him she wouldn't kill herself. So loving,huh?

 Tonks then need to go to the bathroom in the neighbor's grass! I didn't bring a bag because I took her to go potty before we left. Matt ended up running back to the house and grabbing a bag.  

Things were going much better till Matt realized there were blood drops right in front of us. Didn't take us too long to realize they were coming from Tonks! Easy to figure out because there was a good bit of blood on her face and her tongue was covered in blood! Some how she bit her tongue. There was one point where she stopped and as I walked past her she freaked out. I think it happened then. 

We decided to end the walk pretty quickly after that. I'm sure we were quite a sight!

For the past 4 months I've had to live without a garbage disposal. Not sure how I did it. Honestly, it wasn't too bad at first. Once I was pregnant, I just could not handle that nasty food catcher thing. Matt would have  clean it out for me every night. 
Earlier this week Mr. Ron and Ms Terri came over so that the guys could instal a garbage disposal. While the guys were picking one out and getting the supplies Ms Terri and I went and got dinner. Yum, Chines! We all ate and then it was time to work! Ms Terri and I supervised and watch John and Kate Plus Eight.  
The guys got it done pretty quickly! And it works great! I love having a garbage disposal again. Thanks for your help Mr Ron and Ms Terri! I owe you all cookies!

The day Matt and I were having the sonogram I was so excited! I woke up and couldn't sleep anymore. Matt heard me stirring  and started to wake up. When I saw him waking up I said, "It's like Christmas!" Matt looked at me and said in a very sleepy-grumpy voice, "It's not Christmas" then rolled over. I just laid there, a little stunned. A moment later Matt rolled over again. He was a little more awake, so he agreed that it was like Christmas. I thought it was hilarious!

First Pictures!

We had our first sonogram three and a half weeks ago. The baby was just a gestational sack then. I loving called it me "little black dot baby"

This Tuesday we had the eight week sonogram. It's amazing to see how much the baby has grown and developed. Everything think looks perfect. The baby's heart rate was good. We got to see it's heart just pumping away. Makes me smile just thinking about it.  

The day we found out we were pregnant in our small group we read Psalm 139:13-16. I've been thinking about that passage a lot as the pregnancy progresses. 

For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother's 
I praise you because I am fearfully and
wonderfully made,
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths
of the earth,
our eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me
were written in your book
before one of them came to be. 

It's amazing to think that's what's happening to our baby right now. Our God indeed it is awesome God!

What a day...

This started last night. 

Matt was grilling. We both went outside and Tonks got out! We don't have a fence and Tonks has slipped out of her collar and taken of around the neighborhood. Once she realized she was outside with out her leash, she took off! Thankfully Matt was able to catch her pretty quickly.

Later in the evening we decide to make some cookies. I had to add some coco. As I was trying to put the lid back on it, something happened! Next thing I know it's falling and coco is flying everywhere! All over the floor, counter and ourselves.  We finally got it all cleaned up, the vacuum now smells like coco whenever it's on. Then the cookies didn't turn out!

This morning Matt tells me something is wrong with his ear and he needs to get it checked out. Matt never wants to go to the doctor! I start to worry and decided I would take a sick day so I could go to the doctor with him.

I'm opening this week so I had to go in and work for a little while. Once everyone else came in for the day I start getting ready to leave. I go to lock my coin vault, I end up SLAMMING my thumb in the door! Oh it hurt so badly! It started to bruise immediately. I now have I nice bruise under my nail that will be there for a while. 

I finally get out of work and Matt and I go to the doctor. He has simmers ear and a middle ear infection. He's on medication now and feeling much better.

Just been one thing after another. Thankfully hasn't been anything too big, just annoyances.    


Looks like my morning sickness was short lived! I haven't been sick since Sunday, wohoo! One of my friends from church gave me some great advice; take my vitamin at night. This seems to have made a huge difference. I've gotten a ton of other great ideas. The other one that's been a big help is to keep crackers by the bed and have some before getting up. I still feel a little nauseated (is that the right form of the word? I always forget which it is) in the mornings but nothing like it was. Yea!
