On the couch

The last few days have been pretty slow. Normally, I'm the type of person who needs to be up doing things all the time. I rarely ever stay at home and I definitely don't sit for long periods of time unless I'm working on a deadline.

So having to sit and having the extra worry about the fact that I'm still bleeding has made for a very long week. And not just for me - Nathan has been extra, extra grouchy lately and I think he's missing his Mommy/Nathan play time.

His mommy is too.

Yesterday and today, he's spent a lot of time just sitting on my lap on the couch, eating snacks or just talking to me. I've soaked up every second of it. I've missed my baby.

My parents are out of town right now and on Tuesday, Jon got his wisdom teeth out. So, we called and asked if my mother-in-law, Connie, would be able to come out here and help since I'm not really supposed to be doing much and we figured Jon would be sore.

It has been so nice to have her here! And Jon is doing great - he's not swollen, he's barely taken his pain medication, he's doing awesome. Much better than I did when I got mine out. ;)

 I have been spending a lot of time in the Psalms lately. They have been how I get through the day without falling apart from the worry a lot of the time. I love Psalm 27:13-14: "I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord, be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the Lord." I love that. No matter what happens with this baby I know that I will see him or her someday because in Christ we have that promise of the "land of the living"!!

Please continue to keep us in your prayers. Thank you so much for the prayers you have given for us!! Love to you all,
