Urgent prayers are needed for my Uncle Steve (the one dressed as Santa in the pix with Luke). He has lung cancer. In the month since those pictures were taken his health has declined rapidly and he is having trouble breathing and sleeping (because of the breathing). He and my aunt are en route to Houston to go to MD Anderson in hopes that they can treat the cancer and provide him some relief. Because of his health, they had to abandon many of their Christmas job duties (He was the Santa at Bass Pro in Olathe, KS) which will be a big financial difficulty for them. Please pray for quick healing and comfort for him and for the strength and comfort for my Aunt Carol as they walk this journey together. In the weeks ahead please pray for their finances. We love you Santa Steve!! We know you will get your strength back and feel better soon!

Knowing my husband could you really be surprised by Luke's Halloween costume? :) One of the nurses suggested that we go to Build-a-Bear to get a costume that would fit - so we did!! We got the doggie to go with the costume for Luke when he gets a little older. :) Isn't Luke the cutest thing? :)

Luke is 1 week old today!! He is doing so good!! He is breathing great, digesting great and is surpassing his birth weight now at a whopping 2 lbs 9.3 oz!! They removed his iv today because he is able to get all his nutrients from me now. Yay!! I know he is much more comfortable without that in him!! He is just so cute!! We started being able to have kangaroo time with him this week. Me in the morning, daddy at night. That is my favorite part of the day. He curls up and is just so snug against you - the best natural high ever!! Here are a few updated pictures. For those that follow me on facebook - there are more pictures there. Love my little punkin!! :)

I just learned this Monday that I will need to find a new ob. Mine decided to close his practice. We are supposed to be getting a letter telling us why and what to do about our records blah blah blah. So now we are trying to find a new one. Something I really didn't expect to have to deal with - espc with 13 1/2 weeks to go. Trying not to stress because that isn't good for anyone - but I can't get it out of my mind. Whose recommendation should I take for a doctor? I have many from friends and family. The ob is supposedly sending a few in that letter. What a mess.
I'm at home this morning because the apartment people are supposed to come do an inspection. Gotta love it. I'm sooooo ready to be in a house. I'm hoping that when our lease is up in March that we can seamlessly move into one. It was too optimistic to hope we could be in there before the baby. That's fine with me at this point. There is no way I'd have the energy for a move right now.
I've been feeling Luke wiggle around for a while, but on Saturday I felt him move with my hand. He hasn't done it like that again to where John would be able to feel it yet. I'm sure if he did it once then it will start becoming more frequent.
So anyway - that's the update.....

I guess I haven't been maintaining this blog very well. Life just seems to be so busy. We are now 17 weeks pregnant and things are going well. I felt the baby move a couple times yesterday which was a weird, wonderful feeling! Last night we went out in the 100 degree heat for John to pitch his first ever shut out softball game. We find out July 10th whether we are having a little boy or a little girl! We can't wait!! 17 days!! The baby's bones are solidifying into bone from cartilage right now, which must explain my undeniable craving for milk!
Our adorable little niece will be 8 months tomorrow and has already mastered the art of crawling and is pulling herself up to a standing position as well! Yay Taylor!! :) I love that little munchkin!
We are getting our ducks in a row to be able to move into a house. Our lease is up in March, so most likely it will be after the baby is born - but who knows!! ;-) We are both so tired of this apartment complex.
Well that's the update from us....I'll try to be more regular with updates :)
